This talented designer joined Clive Daniel Home after 20 years in the interior design industry. She started her career in the Chicago area with Walter Smith Design and then enjoyed a fulfilling work experience with the nationally respected Baker Furniture. After moving to Florida’s west coast, Fran worked with Clive and Daniel Lubner for several years and also for Ethan Allen.
Her formal education in fine art and design resulted in earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Loyola University Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago Design.

She has won awards in several local design competitions and has a special fondness for assisting a client with custom furniture.
