Monika Kerstens

Design Consultant

With my European background and having lived in London, New York, Chicago and San Francisco over the past ten years, there is one thing I can say – I really had to learn how to organize the available space and squeeze every inch out of it in the most efficient way, within aesthetic constraints.

After having obtained a Masters degree in Law, I decided to pursue my true passion and enter the design world. In 2000 I designed my first furniture, which reflected very contemporary streamlined European design trends.

I obtained my Interior Design degree and certificates from colleges in London and Chicago. As an Interior Designer, in 2007 I won a design competition for a restaurant in Chicago. In 2008 one of my projects was published in the November issue of Home Improvement Magazine Chicago.

My first interaction with California Closets was through projects for my Interior Design clients in Chicago. After moving to San Francisco, I discovered that I share a similar professional philosophy as California Closets – passion for very good product quality and excellent customer service…. and so, I decided to join the San Francisco team.

I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to help people define their needs and provide them with the optimal solution. As a European I am particularly excited about the Lago product and the new Virtuoso line, as this beautifully represents the clean contemporary style that I favor. I truly believe in my motto that accompany me all the years on my design carrier –

“…to Change and Idea into Concept and Execution….Your Space”
