100 Things That Define Seattle Design

Seattle Homes & Lifestyles

February, 2006

In tandem with Seattle’s condominium explosion, award-winning interior designer Garret Cord Werner has helped shape the aesthetic of the city’s young, contemporary urban lifestyle. He originally arrived in Seattle to open a satellite office for Vancouver, B.C. – based Ledingham Design, Inc., before going solo in recent years. Crediting Robert Ledinghan as his design mentor, Werner has made strong interior statements in several condominium developments, including The Vine and Avenue One in Belltown. His innovative menu of choice for Avenue One, in particular, presented buyers with stylish-but-functional choices with which to personalize their interiors, including built-in storage, wall niches, room dividers and Murphy beds. On the boards are interiors for Lumen, an urban project of town homes and flats at the former Tower Records site on Mercer Street and Fifth Avenue near the Seattle Center. by Debra Prinzing
