Lisa O'Brien is the owner of All Things Material.

Raised in Northern Kentucky, as a child Lisa O’Brien was always creating something. No wonder she became an artist!

Custom window treatments add an artistic element to every home. Creativity, education, and detail are necessary to provide customers with the right look to fit their home design goals. Hiring a professional is how this is done.

In 2004, after attending a Custom Home Furnishings Conference with Donna Skufis, Lisa returned and gave a one-month notice to her corporate office and opened All Things Material!

With the education provided by this unique school and continuous ongoing education to remain current on fabrication methods, trends, fabrics, and safety, All Things Material has become a well-known and respected business.

Lisa is the President of the Kentucky Workroom Association, meeting quarterly to learn from others in the industry and share experiences.

During her free time, she enjoys catching up with family. Walking her 2-year-old Lab Summer as well as being outdoors and golfing.
