MEET OUR TEAM
Lakshmi’s lifelong passion for design inspires her to create beautiful, yet practical rooms for her clients. Her more than 17-year career designing kitchens, cabinetry, and other spaces, has truly been a labor of love. It began in 2001, when Cabri,Inc. was renovating her future in-laws’ kitchen. When Lakshmi learned Cabri’s owner was ready to retire, she jumped at the opportunity. The daughter of a long-time entrepreneur, business ownership was in her blood. Add design work and customer service, and it was a perfect fit! Lakshmi took the plunge, enrolled in design classes at Parsons School of Design, and the rest is history. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Rochester. Well recognized for her industry expertise, Lakshmi’s work has been published in several magazines, including Design NJ and Summit Magazine. When she’s not at the showroom, she’s at home in Chatham, NJ, running after her three young children.
