StacyWhat is your role at Seigles?  
Design and Sales at the Mundelein Showroom.

What is your favorite thing about working at Seigles?
Everyone supports each other.

What is your favorite project you’ve worked on and why?  
Most recently, a condo in Northbrook. They chose to go with cabinetry from my the Decora display that I just installed, and I can’t wait to see the final product. It includes dark grey paint, beaded inset, and all glass! I applaud them for thinking out of the box.

What is your favorite option in today’s kitchens?  
My new paper towel holder from a converted drawer.

Over your years in the business, what was the worst design trend you encountered?
I really don’t like desks in the kitchen. All they’ve ever done is create clutter. Oh, and anything to do with a cow in the kitchen. Sorry Allyson!!

If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?  
Rigatoni Bolognese or Chicken and Dumplings. I’m all about comfort food. Mr. Seigle was probably hoping I’d say pound cake, but it’s dinner. Who eats pound cake for dinner? Right?

What’s your guilty pleasure?
My pot of tea and biscotti in the morning while I read my book. And pizza! I can’t get enough pizza. I also love kayaking.

What is the most thrilling thing you’ve ever done?  
Parasailing.

What is your favorite room in your house?
Whatever room my girls are in.

If you had a 25 hour day while everyone else had only 24, what would you do with your extra time?  
Enjoy the peace and quiet! No phone or emails!

What is the top item on your bucket list?  
Travel. First stop, Ireland or Italy!!
