Laura Frankenberg buy/design Inc.

buy/design, inc. was founded in 2003 by Laura Frankenberg specializing in the coordination, purchasing and installation of furniture, fixtures and accessories for hotels, restaurants, casinos, and high-end residential. The combination of having been raised in a family retail business, and designing and renovating places for friends and for family, allowed her avocation to become a vocation after making the permanent move from New York to Las Vegas in 1993.

Laura FrankenbergLaura's career began with a high-end design firm. This was followed by a move to Atlandia Design, the predecessor to the MGM/Mirage Design Group. After working for another private firm in Las Vegas, Laura decided it was time to strike out on her own. She formed buy/design, inc , a WBE company, with the security of a project renovating a small boutique hotel in town. From that, she was privileged to be able to complete many projects with the MGM Grand Resorts Development Group, Station Casinos, Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, etc.

What makes buy/design, inc different from other purchasing companies, is the belief that Laura has that the Owner and the Designer should be given the project they anticipate and for which they are paying. The experience Laura brings with her to buy/design can assist in the successful completion of a project. Every project will receive the same TLC regardless of scope. buy/design has built a reputation of being able to bring its assignment to fruition on time and usually considerably under budget while maintaining a high design integrity.

Laura is a Past President of NEWH, the Hospitality Industry Network. At the now annual NEWH Hospy Awards Event, the Las Vegas' chapter fundraiser, buy/design, inc. was honored to have been cited by its peers as "Best Purchasing Company" for 2006 and again in 2007, Laura is a strong believer in mentoring so that the future designers and purchasing agents entering our industry are well equipped. Laura has been a member of the Board of the Art Institute of Nevada, the American Heart Association Board and the Las Vegas Philharmonic Guild.
