Senior Designer and Sales Executive, Susan da Fonseca, has worked with OFH for over 20 years. Susan relocated to LA in late 2015 to open our West Coast office. Her aptitude for problem solving and collaboration makes her an expert at creating beautiful, practical workspaces for companies in a variety of industries including real estate, publishing, fashion and healthcare. Her clients include Catholic Charities, Rosa Mexicano, L’Occitane’s World Headquarters, and Madison Square Garden.
CAD and Giza proficient, Susan is able to quickly provide test fits, floor plans and budget estimates for designers, architects, real estate brokers, developers, and end users. Susan’s design sense is a great asset when selecting materials and coordinating finishes. Her vast knowledge of office furniture allows her to find the right furniture at the right price point for any budget.
Prior to joining OFH, Susan worked for 8 years with Vandeberg and Lasky Architects. There she learned CAD, built an interiors department and marketed the architects’ specialized skill set to the jewelry manufacturing community. This experience allows her to collaborate with architects and interior designers in a way most office furniture dealers cannot.
Susan studied design and art at Colorado Womens’ College. She earned her BSN from the University of Texas School of Nursing in San Antonio, and has pursued certifications in yoga, Reiki, and has been ordained as an interfaith minister. Susan moved to LA to open our West Coast office and to be with her family. She continues to serve her New York and national accounts from our new office in Los Angeles.
