About Us

Our History

In 1993, Ken Leman and Cynthia Shoff joined forces to create Leman Shoff Interiors, Inc., a full service interior design studio. The emphasis was based on bringing classic style to the home with quality furnishings that would stand the test of time.

LS HOME was introduced in 2007 to enhance the concept of classic interiors for the way we live today. LS HOME has evolved to be a unique resource for an ever changing array of furnishings and accessories. We also specialize in many design services which may include space planning, furnishings layout, floor, wall and window treatments, architectural detailing and accessorizing. This design expertise may apply to any size project, one room or an entire house.
LS HOME specializes in residential and commercial design.

I believe that the client’s indoor and outdoor spaces should reflect their lifestyle and individuality. It is my goal to assist them in creating designs to achieve this objective. I use classic design concepts with attention to architectural detail, color, art, antiques, and accessories. When finished, the clients space should not only be stylish and comfortable, but unique.
There is nothing like a great bookstore, boutique grocery or a garden nursery in bloom to make my day and give me inspiration.

My passion is uniting form and function to enhance each client’s lifestyle.
Growing up my favorite chore was setting the table for special occasions. I enjoyed the pretty china and making arrangements with the tableware, but my favorite part was thinking about the conversations and laughter that would soon fill the room. It is my goal to always create an environment to facilitate the beautiful life lived within it.

My goal is to create a space based on the client’s inspiration by using the pieces that they love and cherish and building the space around them. This method creates a home that reflects the client’s personal style and taste while keeping it timeless, classic and comfortable all at the same time.
I love hunting for finds and those special antiques and unusual pieces that can make a room!
