Ever since her school days, Lara Farmilo knew she had a passion for art and design.

"Early on, I decided the best way to carry this forward into the real world was through interior design – so I undertook and completed a two year design diploma."

From there Farmilo went on directly to work for Poggenpohl in Parnell, Auckland.

"The company was a perfect fit for me all round. I love the international flavour of Poggenpohl kitchens and that they reflect the latest and best options available – from technology to finishes to flexibility.

"I've been designing there for over 14 years now and over that time have seen kitchens transformed from a secondary space to being the centre of attention."

On working with her clients, Farmilo says while she enjoys fulfilling the needs of those with a specific vision, she loves being given a blank canvas to work from as well.

"One of the best things about this job is surprising our clients with something far better than they could have imagined," she says. "For example, I recently undertook a complete revamp of a kitchen that we had designed 14 years ago. The owners say they are thrilled with the end result."
