Interiors Joan and Associates is Lincoln’s premier interior design firm offering individual attention for small or large projects. Originally opening in Fremont in 1963 as “Interiors by Joan” after the founder Joan Sorenson, a second location opened in Omaha in 1985. In 2003, the firm expanded to Lincoln.

The award-winning design firm is family owned by Kris Patton. Kris is a third-generation interior designer, following the examples set by her mother and former owner, Diane Gernstein, former partner Nancy Pesavento, and her grandmother, Joan Sorenson, the firm’s founder.

“As designers, we take inspiration from everything we do. The knowledge of many different styles keeps our designers fresh and distinctive. We listen to our clients and figure out what they want for their space. There’s a lot of psychology involved,” Patton said.

“We show them things they can’t do themselves. We take them outside of their comfort zones and show them things that are unique to them. The relationships grow as the designers get to know the individual,” Patton added. “Our designers aren’t just pushing a trend or their personal style—they help the clients find what they want.”
