Eva Quateman Interiors is a multi-faceted, Chicago-based design firm that provides residential and commercial interior design and renovation services—ranging from custom-built home design and interiors to full-scale renovations—for projects across the country. Eva is the Principal in Charge, making her the firm’s lead designer and creative force behind all projects.

It is Eva’s impeccable eye for space planning and design—based on her extensive knowledge of general contracting and construction—that differentiates her from other interior designers. Though she designs for a range of styles, Eva has excelled at helping her clients achieve a traditional look. A success that has led to the label “Cool Traditionalist,” based upon her timelessness, creativity and the practical efficiency she brings to each project. Eva has been featured in a number of publications, including Traditional Home, Décor, Luxe, and CS, and she has successfully completed projects throughout the United States and Mexico.

Glamour, sophistication and effortless ease coalesce in this living room designed for someone who loves to entertain and does it well. Drawing inspiration from iconic designers, such as Dorothy Draper and James Mont, this room embraces the softer side of the mid-20th century by combining sleek lines and luxurious materials with witty curves and bold doses of pattern and color. The richly upholstered verdant walls, ebonized trim and sparkling chandelier add high-wattage drama to the mix. This room may nod to that glamorous past, but ultimately 21st century comfort and function reign supreme.
