A Native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Lennie Chamberlin, or Ms. Lennie, as many have come to know her, is from a 100-year generational family steeped in art, architecture, and design.  Raised by an architect father and an interior designer mother, truly an artist  herself, Lennie grew up with her Dad still attending Tulane University, always in the midst of designing 50’s Modern Homes, outside his normal Commercial Architectural work, in the era of Curtis and Davis, his favorite Architects.


Living in several states prior to settling in Dallas, Texas, and receiving her Architecture Degree from the University of Texas, at the Commencement in Arlington. She began her work in Dallas doing High Rise Commercial Architecture, along with Hospitality, and Interior Design with WZMH Architects.  She would then return to New Orleans, to work for firms such as Perez Architects, while her husband completed Tulane Law School.  She returned to Texas via Houston and attended the University of Houston for their Master of Architecture Program.  While in Houston, Ms. Chamberlin was fortunate to work with Morris Architects.  Lennie ultimately moved back to Dallas, working with commercial Architecture and Interior Design firms such as WDG Architects, and moved into Higher Education, with Positions such as Senior Facilities Design Specialist, Architecture, for Dallas Colleges and Assistant Director Facilities Management & Construction for Texas Womens University.


Learning from generations of family dealing in antique procurement in the New Orleans French Quarter, and restoring historic properties, to working with one of New Orleans largest and oldest architects, Ms. Lennie is well versed in Historic Preservation, knows and can share with you the rarity or value of antiques, and can assist in any remodel of older or historic properties.
