John Selected_Lighter.jpg

Interior Designer

John Cisneros

 
John Cisneros is an interior designer who believes design follows the functionality of those inhabiting a space and that aesthetics will follow. He would also describe his aesthetic like an ideal first date: intimate setting, flattering presentation, and cognizant to details.

He grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey because his mother didn't want to raise kids in New York City. Eventually, he made his way there by attending Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn, and graduating with a BFA in Interior Design. He went on to design restaurants and bars in, what Alicia Keys calls, the concrete jungle. While it is where "dreams are made of" there was something he couldn't do, get out to nature as easily.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, John saw the silver lining in unemployment as to get the heck out of Hell's Kitchen. In June of 2021 he moved to Denver, and with hospitality hurting at the time and he chose to leave his bread and butter of restaurants and bar design to joined TPS in October of that year. Eager to integrate his knowledge to a more corporate setting.

Outside of work, John enjoys just that, being outside. While indoors, he enjoys trying out new recipes and binging on TV series. The Great British Bake Off falls perfectly in the middle of that Venn diagram.

Faan.jpg

Faan Dergance

Interior Designer

A firm believer that our surroundings play a huge role in our sense of well-being and overall happiness, Faan is determined to improve every space she touches and enjoys the creative process involved in making this a reality. Although always striving to create balanced, modern, and harmonious spaces that look and feel great, Faan knows that functionality, comfort and creating strong client relationships are equally important components in every project. With a background in both commercial architecture as well as high-end residential interior design, Faan draws on both to envision the larger scope as well as the minute details. 

Pouring over the details and being meticulous played an important role in realizing a top-to-bottom residential renovation for an exacting client, where every aspect of the project was bespoke, from the leather-wrapped handrails and leather wall-tiles to the tailor-made furniture pieces and custom area rugs throughout.

Born and raised in Belgium, she has called the US home for over 30 years. Faan loves traveling, exploring new cities, and frequenting every museum and art gallery she can find, as they provide for endless sources of inspiration. When home in Denver, she loves a great cocktail and a good meal with friends and family, or a long walk with furry friends.

Michelle.jpg

Michelle Lozano

Interior Designer

Michelle is a former attendee of Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design with a degree in Interior Design with an emphasis on Sustainability. Right after graduation, Michelle started her career as a Bath and Kitchen Designer for 3 years, before jumping to an architecture firm specializing in Commercial Office Design as a junior designer. Since then, she has worked on various commercial projects, ranging from lobby spaces, tenant spaces, to amenity suites; all of which ranged in scale from small 1,000 SF spaces up to larger 30,000 SF projects.

After the fallout from 2020-2021 however; Michelle took a brief step back from the commercial field; instead, wanting to explore and focus on the residential side of the design world as an Interior Designer and Architectural Designer / Job Captain in Boulder, Colorado specializing in Sustainability. Within a short amount of time, Michelle came to realize that her heart lies within the commercial field; and specifically, the fast-paced life of Office Design where people tend to spend most of their lives and where no two projects are the same. Easily slipping back into a routine here at TPS; she strongly believes in two things:

1.    No project is too small or extensive, simply a new learning experience.
2.    The only way for us to live a happier and healthier life is to incorporate small sustainable changes within all aspects of life & designs; after-all Michelle is a strong believer in the quote: “What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on.”- Henry David Thoreau

You can often find Michelle outside of work with her furry children running amuck in the mountains (especially if there is snow); studying for her upcoming NCIDQ tests; or traveling whenever possible!
