Our Design Team

Laura Burton // Owner, Interior Architect, Allied Member ASID

Laura is a unique combination of the Type-A personality and creative free-spirit. She is a casual, coffee-loving optimist. Friends know her as a morning person, runner, neat freak, and if she could wear the same thing every day she totally would (who has time for such decisions?). "After hours" priorities are family-time and sitting down with a pen and paper (writing serves as a creative outlet - check out our blog!). Design obsessions include unusual chairs, fun tile, and original art that speaks to the soul.
Laura has a degree in Architecture from the University of Texas and worked for years as a manager in the high-tech industry. In 2004, she left corporate life to start her own business, and has since practiced as a contractor, architect, and interior designer. LBI projects have been published locally and nationally and have consistently earned awards in ASID competitions. Laura enjoys collaborating with other industry professionals and brings a broad range of expertise to projects across the country, from remodels and new construction to commercial and multi-family.

Casey Cunningham // Senior Designer

Designer, cyclist, dancer, friend, travel-obsessed foodie, aspiring minimalist, ENFP, outdoorsy type with an irreverent sense of humor.

Casey believes the process should be fun, not just the final result. Since joining the LBI Team in 2012, she has won awards and competitions for product design and is particularly passionate about rug design. She strives to create products and spaces that are functional, beautiful, AND meaningful.

Annie Bacon // Associate Designer

Annie is a creative busy-body, devoted dog mom, and admitted Instagram junkie. She thrives in the details and believes everything has a story to tell.

Her love of design developed as a child, traveling the world with her Air Force family. Settling in Texas, she earned her bachelor's degree in Interior Design from Texas Tech University. She is an NCIDQ certificate holder and Texas registered interior designer.
