{window treatment wednesday: meet the Hirshfield’s experts}

Designer spotlight on Becky Eggers.

Hirshfield's window treatment expert Becky Eggers

Becky Eggers is a Hirshfield’s window treatment expert.

I’m in awe of people who have a natural eye for design. You know the type—they can walk into a house and know exactly what colors would look perfect here, what accessories would add just the right pop there, how to reuse an item from one room to pull a look together elsewhere in the home. It’s amazing!

Hirshfield’s Becky Eggers has both a natural eye for design plus years of expertise, starting with a degree in textile and design. She’s been with Hirshfield’s for more than 30 years, working in sales and design resource, in addition to planning and managing two of Hirshfield’s décor departments. You can find Becky at Hirshfield’s Design Resource Showroom where she runs the designer program for Window Fashions. Becky works with designers and their clients in the selection of window treatments; having Hunter Douglas products is a great addition to the product offerings at the design showroom.

Her area of expertise is hard window treatments. “I always ask our customers about what’s important to them regarding their window treatment selection,” says Eggers. “What’s important—function or aesthetics? Do they need room darkening, privacy, options that block UV rays, or something that provides a design detail? Maybe it’s a combination of both design and function.”

{hirshfield’s designer feature: meet greg!}

Hirshfield’s Design Studio in Minneapolis is home to not only some of the most delicious eye candy the interior design world has to offer, but it is also home to some of the most experienced and creative design professionals in the Twin Cities. Those design professionals being Kathy, Greg, Julia and Meropi. All of them are more than happy to answer your design questions, but we thought it would be fun to turn the spotlight on them and ask them a few questions!

Today, get to know Greg, one of the talented clerks at Hirshfield’s Design Studio. Like Kathy, Greg’s name has also shown up in a few of our blog posts (check out 50’s Revival and What’s New at Hirshfield’s Design Studio in Minneapolis). Greg admits that he somewhat “stumbled” into the design industry, but after having been here for 22 years we think his stumbling was pretty accurate!

How long have you worked at Hirshfield’s Design Studio?
I’ve been at the Design Studio for 22 years but I’ve been with Hirshfield’s for a total of 25 years. Although it doesn’t feel like it has been that long!
