Interior Designer for Cox, Kliewer & Co.

As an interior designer for Cox, Kliewer & Co., Chad Krikorian is responsible for maintaining the sample library, designing in AutoCAD, and assisting the architects. He states that his work is busy and exciting—and focused on designing residential and commercial spaces.

Chad notes that he was named Homearama’s “Future Design Star” in the fall of 2011, a designation presented by Tidewater Building Association. Homearama is a 16-day display held in Virginia for fully landscaped customized homes. Since then he’s kept up with interior design trends by staying on top of technology, materials, and finishes, and he recommends that current interior design students do the same.

Chad, who in 2013 earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Virginia Beach, says that his education helped to prepare him for a creative career. “[The school provided] me with the best instructors and access to professionals in the field.” He adds that the opportunity to learn alongside these professionals* provided insight that’s been beneficial in his transition to the working world.
