Laura Ficenec,  Junior Designer

Laura recently joined The Vanguard Theory team, bringing a fresh new dynamic to the studio. Coming from San Francisco, Laura became familiar with various vernaculars ranging from Mid-Century Modern to Arts and Crafts. Her recent experience includes designing homes, and working closely with manufacturers to complete projects in the Bay Area.

As a junior designer at The Vanguard Theory, Laura is managing FF&E logistics for the Mauna Kea Beach Resort, sourcing & procuring a beach house on the North Shore, and she is part of the team designing the public spaces for White Sands Waikiki.

Hitting the ground running and with only a month as a Kamaaina, Laura opened the Honolulu Chapter for Moms Demand Action.
