Amanda Burcham, Allied ASID
Interior design impacts lives. Not only does it have a functional impact, but it also has a psychological significance as well. A successful design functions for the end-user while also affecting the way it makes them feel, even if it is done subconsciously. Amanda always knew she wanted to be in an industry that was dynamic and constantly evolving. She finds it incredibly fulfilling to be in a position where she can be involved in creating the background for someone’s day-to-day life.
Amanda graduated with a Bachelor of Interior Design from the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design at the University of Arkansas in 2014. After interning for a reputable commercial design firm during the summer before her graduation, she accepted a project designer position with a Fortune 500 company in St. Louis, Missouri. She spent two years in a fast-paced, high-volume brand initiative where she worked with franchisees all over the country. After two years, she was ready to come back home to Northwest Arkansas. She spent four years in residential construction where she was involved in over 70 home remodels and 175 new homes built in Northwest Arkansas. Whether the project involved renovations or new home construction, she enjoyed being involved in the construction process from the beginning to the end. Amanda joined Modus Studio in 2020. She was excited about the opportunity to enhance her residential and commercial design experience professionally by joining this incredibly talented team.
There’s an old saying, “Whatever you are, be a good one”. Amanda’s passion for interior design follows her wherever she goes. She constantly investigates design trends, new products and technology, and participates in continuing education courses in order to achieve her goal of impacting lives every day.
