Kaitlyn Carpenter


Kaitlyn ventured to North Carolina all the way from upstate New York to continue her education in Interior Design. While obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design at High Point University she found a home here at Furnitureland as one of our first interns. After graduating she stuck around to out grow of her Kaitlyn “the intern” nickname and became the “New Girl”. Hopefully that has passed as well. As a student she also played a part in creating the Interiors and Home Furnishings Club, and planning trips and networking events for her fellow students.

Kaitlyn believes that design is all around us and it is an adventure to discover potential in the most unexpected places. In her spare time you can find Kaitlyn enjoying the beautiful outdoors and teaching ZUMBA!
