(CFD) is a full-service interior design firm offering innovative design solutions tailored to reveal the personality and vision of its clients. Specializing in classic and contemporary residential interiors, CFD empowers its clients to maximize the use of their living spaces and transform their homes into functional and soothing environments.

Christy Foran’s extensive experience and passion for great design complement her energetic personality, organizational creativity and unfaltering attention to detail. Her ability to gracefully balance fabrics, color, materials, periods and textures consistently brings harmony and personality to every project, ultimately crafting spaces that are comfortably elegant yet functional and timeless.

Most importantly, Christy believes in establishing and maintaining strong relationships with her clients and understands that honest communication produces a mutually satisfactory end result, reflective of her client’s vision.

CFD has been nominated three years in a row for the Chicago Merchandise Mart’s “Ones to Watch” award, a coveted acknowledgement of success within the Chicago design community.
