Jennifer Glickman was set to join the family dental business until a run-in with the Jeffersonian architecture at the University of Virginia led her to the world of fashionable interiors.
When Glickman meets with a client for the first time, she heads straight to the closet. “Let me see what’s going on in there! How someone dresses tells me so much about his or her design voice,” explains the Charlottesville, Virginia, designer, who was on the pre-dental track until an architecture elective led her astray.
Her love of borrowed-from-the-boys silhouettes — Balenciaga and Balmain are two favorites — directly influences her interiors, where she deftly pairs handsome midcentury pieces with charming and pretty accessories and fabrics. “It’s a striking combination, because it feels dynamic and collected.”
