Principal Designer, Sara Cukerbaum, received her B.A. from New York University before returning to study interior design at The Harrington Institute of Design in Chicago. After graduating, Sara worked as a designer at firms in Chicago, New York, and Dallas, where she worked on a variety of published projects. She then returned to her home state of Texas where she founded SLIC Interiors in Austin.
Recently, the firm has completed a number of exciting projects in the Austin area, including a custom condo at the Seaholm, a restaurant remodel on Congress & a new restaurant on E. Cesar Chavez.
In addition to her professional experience, Sara has had the good fortune to travel all over the world. This exposure shaped her aesthetic and refined her understanding of the different ways in which people live. Sara’s aesthetic is based on a real appreciation for the way a person’s environment can shape their lifestyle. It is that appreciation that makes the client the center of their own design.
The company’s aesthetic emphasizes a natural take on modernity, bringing together the best vendors from around the country, offering trend setting items to Austin. Innovation, originality and function are the driving forces behind SLIC Interiors.
