THE LifeStyled COMPANY (LCo) was born out of an obsession of all things design – a passion for creating a styled life that screams of sophistication, simplicity and loads of originality.
After 10 years of planning and executing beautifully curated weddings + events for a luxury hotel company, Kristen Forgione decided it was time to make the leap and pursue her true passion. With nothing more than a semester of Fashion School in LA, determination, and a serious hankering for DIY, she launched a blog and began chronicling her own personal DIY triumphs (and failures) along with home décor tips and trends. The response to her authentic and purposeful design aesthetic was both enthusiastic and overwhelming.
Six months and three free design sessions later, Kristen had built up enough clients to hang up her hospitality hat + high heels for a full time career of fashionable flats and fabric swatches.
Fast forward almost five years, this small, humble, Arizona-based business has grown into a flourishing full-service design and retail studio based in Downtown Gilbert and servicing clients throughout Arizona, and beyond. In addition to the new Retail Studio/Office (Coming May 2017), LCo Design has recently grown into a talented team, who are both design driven and hilariously human -- always putting their clients' needs first.
The LCo team’s work has garnered attention in the media world from HGTV, Houzz, The Today Show, Modern Luxury Magazine and Luxe Magazine, just to name a few.
