Allison Hardy

Senior Design Consultant

I like to think of my own home as a retreat from the outside world. I gravitate towards organic textures and colours.

At Cottswood we're on top of what's new and interesting in the industry. We have that perfect balance of being up on trends while still honoring the classics.

When working with new clients, I take note of their reactions to different pieces as they walk through the store. It gives me an idea of their personality and sense of style. We build off that.

Anastasia Baikova

Design Consultant

I received a Bachelor's of Design and Fine Arts in Eastern Europe. I've always been inspired by people and their homes, so I truly love what I do. My keys to successful projects are balance and harmony. I enjoy finding my clients beautiful and quality-made furniture that will be part of their lives for years to come.

Christopher Cook

Design Consultant

My personal design preference is all over the map. I have a traditional French-styled home here in Edmonton. I also have a very contemporary holiday home that I designed with steel, glass, and metal.

When I'm doing a house visit with a client, I like to park down the block. Walking through the neighbourhood helps give me a feel for the area. Once I get inside, I try to get a sense of people's personality.

The goal is to capture and interpret that unique personality we all have and turn it into a beautiful environment for my client's to enjoy.

Dean Wiens

Design Consultant

My personal aesthetic is traditional. Although, it used to be modern so it’s a bit of a mix, you could call it "transitional." I like things that mean something, things that have history. I think it’s important to bring those items into your home.

Change is good and working through the right plan for you is all apart of the process. We'll work together to get to a finished product that you're proud of.

When we work together – you can count on being happy with the end result. 

Donna Andre

Design Consultant

Personally I love all furniture styles, each one has a place in design. Currently in my home I lean toward more contemporary design, but I like to pull in the odd traditional piece to mix it up.

When first meeting a client I like to take them on a leisurely browse through the store. This is the beginning of a relationship where we work together to create a space they will love, and that will serve them well with fit, function, and style. Through conversation and discussing various options, we develop a unique design with pieces, colours, and textures that work cohesively to reflect their lifestyle and personality.

My goal is to create a truly enjoyable, personal experience and a space the client will enjoy for many years to come.

Brie Stachniak

Design Consultant

I express my personal style through strong statement pieces that are conversational and unique. I am naturally drawn to modern, minimalist concepts and simple layouts.

Working with clients allows me to explore their personal interests and lifestyles. From there I work with the brands that Cottswood has to offer, truly the best of the best. Ultimately, our studio offers clients a personal solution for their homes.

My goal is for the design to be as much about emotion as it is function. Ultimately creating a space that families will love now, and for years to come.
