About


Kara Zylstra, Founder


Born in Washington, DC, Kara Zylstra was greatly influenced by her mother Shirley Zylstra who adorned their home with unique and highly sought antiques. While studying Interior Design at Marymount University, she apprenticed in her hometown of Washington, DC where high-end antique English Pine clients included newsman David Brinkley and then Secretary of State James Baker. With her BA in Interior Design, she went on to establish a US connection which led to her first sight unseen container from the UK. With no direct UK relationships, she launched out into the deep traveling to England and over twenty years grew her company to a network of UK premier dealers.

Kara’s Yorkshire Pine showroom where she also features upholstered furniture from Miles Talbot Furniture. Along with Redford House, Du Chateau Floors, Somerset Bay Home, Stanley Furniture, Sarreid Ltd, and other prestigious lines, UK reproductions and one-of-a-kind accessories from Europe. As an ASID member, Kara is an exclusive in-demand turnkey, show house, residential and commercial Interior Designer.
