Meet Toren Curtis, Business Developer at SPACE, Inc. 

How did your path lead to SPACE?

Coming from an art and interior design background, I’ve worked with residential, commercial and hospitality sectors of the industry, and I found that working with SPACE allows me to gain expertise in workplace design for the Federal Government. This is exciting because it’s an additional way to expand and apply my skill-set. I believe it’s important for one to continue to learn and grow in their career and SPACE allows me to do this!

What are you most proud about throughout your time with SPACE?

I am proud of the innovative ideas and thought leadership, my team and I bring to the table. Being with SPACE, I’m able to think outside the box and be more solution oriented; and this contributes to me building genuine and long-lasting relationships with my clients. 

In your opinion, what is the future of design — and how will SPACE be able to help?

In my eyes, the future of design is sustainability. It’s been a focal point in the industry for quite some time, but there’s been increased awareness over the years and it’s becoming commonplace for companies to have sustainability initiatives. 

SPACE is able to help with this through SPACE anew; which is our furniture exchange program that allows one to reimagine their space using like-new remanufactured furniture. Up to 98% of existing assets are reused, and there’s minimal landfill impact!

Fun facts about Toren:

  • Loves to stay active whether at the gym or playing tennis
  • Repurposes and renovates furniture
  • Reads and writes fantasy fiction
  • Has an interest in astrology and mythology 
  • Is an advocate for self-wellness; meditation, yoga, grounding with nature and sound-baths
  • DESIGN STYLE: My personal design style Transitional. I like combining Traditional with Modern, and touches of Hollywood Regency. I prefer solids over patterns, and my color pallet is monochrome of white and grey. I use plants to add color, texture, and warmth.
  • DESIGN TRENDS THAT NEED “TO GO”: I believe we can do away with furniture of planned obsolescence, and small footprints. Though there’s a market for everyone, I find that furniture keeps getting smaller, less comfortable, and of poor construction. Let’s bring back solid, comfortable, heirloom quality furniture!
