Page Franzel, Owner and President of Page 2 Design is celebrating her 10th year providing extraordinary design services in the community of Vero Beach. Her first soiree of owning a successful design business happened on the island of Oahu. After moving back to the mainland, she quickly realized that she longed to be back in a warm, tropical climate. She eventually made the journey to Florida and beautiful Vero Beach. Thinking the move might be the beginning of her eventual retirement, those thoughts quickly diminished when she realized that design not only defined her but was also a passion and talent she could not ignore.

After finding her niche in Vero Beach she opened her design studio in 2009 and never looked back. Page feels blessed to have worked on such amazing design projects over the years. Her talent includes the ability to exhibit diverse styles and color palettes to clients ranging from contemporary to traditional, including an eye to re-purpose her clients’ existing furniture and pieces to make the final project uniquely their own. Page 2 Design continues to support multiple non-profit organizations that help make our local community such a wonderful place to live for everyone.

After serving in the US Air Force and a stint in Vero Beach working under Penny Chandler at the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, Christiana Lipscombe entered the creative and chaotic construction industry in Roanoke, Virginia circa 2004. Working around construction sites day after day offered an education that cannot be taught in a school room.  In 2006, she bought, renovated and flipped her first property.  That was to become her full-time profession for the next 10 years. As she watched the market in Vero Beach improve, she looked for a new adventure which is what compelled her to open a cabinet design business in 2016. She opened her shop with a desk, some sample doors and a lot of passion and enthusiasm.  Her skill and eagerness to deliver top notch customer service draws the attention of builders, designers and discerning clientele alike.
