Cecilia Walker is an interior designer and textile designer, currently working on the Office Builds team at Wayfair. Aside from her new projects in Wayfair's real estate portfolio, her scope of work includes the commercial design of over 200,000 square feet of flexible co-working office spaces, residential renovations in New England, New York, Los Angeles and an eponymous textile and wallpaper line.
A former fashion industry veteran, Cecilia worked with companies including Laura Ashley, Inc., Ann Taylor®, Levis®, Keds® and local designer, Hadley Pollet, giving her a multi-faceted background in home furnishings, apparel, footwear and accessories both on the retail and manufacturing sides of the business. In 2015, a life-changing event reignited Cecilia's passion for sketching and brought her back full circle to her fashion roots in product development, eventually leading her onto the path of hand-drawn fabric and wallpaper designs.
An Associate member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP), Cecilia was born in Washington, D.C., spent her childhood in Los Angeles, went to high school in Milwaukee and landed in New England with a short stint in NYC. She is also a mother of four—three of whom are triplet girls!
