Buffy Stevens

After nearly 50 years of contract and residential design, I still love my work. My relationships with my clients are dear to me. I'm still working with my first residential client (1965!), "re-doing" her home for the third time. My mantra at McGilligan's was "a customer doesn't care what you know until they know that you care" and that still applies today.

Retirement? As long as my clients remain a priority, I'll continue to do what I love, working with them to achieve their dream.

Tina Dopf

My job is to successfully coordinate a space that meets or exceeds my client's desire, and I truly enjoy that challenge. Our gallery-like showroom at Stevens Design, with high quality product lines, attention to detail, and excellent customer service attracts very discerning clients. I enjoy the on-going relationships we're able to build with our customers.

I graduated with a four year degree in Interior Design, with a minor in Construction Management from Colorado State University. I passed the NCIDQ exam in 1989. I have worked extensively in both Commercial and Residential interior design.

Renee Degelau
Allied ASID

I believe that every great design begins with listening to and understanding both my client's needs and wants. Then it is up to me, as the designer, to create the perfect space on schedule and within their budget. I love everything about design and my passion is always present in my work.

My degrees in Business, as well as in Interior Design, are invaluable in my position at Stevens Design.

Debbie LaVenture

I think the best part of design is listening to the excitement and expectation of my clients as we discuss their projects. I provide guidance with a keen sense of style and product knowledge to make their wishes a reality. I just love it when an entire plan comes together to meet their needs and desires.

I have a degree in Interior Design, I'm proud to say that I have had the pleasure of working in Madison, Wisconsin for the past 30 years.

Shane Benning
Master Fnisher

Shane grew up in the furniture business. He worked alongside his father, as a second generation master finisher and furniture repair person. In 1995 Shane moved from Denver, Colorado to Madison, Wisconsin. He responded to an ad we had placed in the Wisconsin State Journal. Shane's strong work ethic, attention to detail and his inherent talents were very apparent to us. Shane was hired on the spot. In 2005 Stevens Design opened its doors with a focus on bringing excellence to our customers. We also became the only distributor of Stickley Furniture in the Madison and surrounding areas. In order to better service our customers, we have on two occasions flown Shane out to the Stickley factory in New York where he received training on repairing techniques that are unique to the craftsmanship of Stickley furniture.
