Debra Leb

Design Consultant

I feel so fortunate to be able to utilize my skills and expertise in a way that makes a real difference in people’s lives.

After spending 13 years in the fashion industry working as a Midwest Regional Merchandiser for Donna Karan, TSE Cashmere and Escada I joined the design team at California Closets. Ever since, rather than merchandising clothes in the stores, I have been able to re-create personal space. I truly enjoy being welcomed into a client’s home to assess their needs, and to then transform an area that offers a functional storage solution that’s also aesthetically pleasing.

As a lead veteran designer, I’ve built-up a business of clients who appreciate my knowledge of design, passion and energy. My greatest complement is when they call me back year after year to design additional spaces or when they refer friends and family for my services.

I earned a B.A. degree in Communication Arts from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 1991. I reside in downtown Chicago in the Fulton River Market area with my husband and young son, and when I’m not designing closets you can find me working out at The East Bank Club or cheering on The Chicago Blackhawks!
