OUR DESIGN TEAM

BARBARA OLIVER

Graduating from the University of South Florida with a degree in Art History, a retail management background coupled with a passion for fashion and design naturally suited me to stay the course. I landed at O.P.Jenkins in the fall of 2006 fusing my love for design and interior fashion. With 27 years in the retail management, one thing remains consistent...people buy from people. The relationship between store/designer and client, along with the experience, make for a lifetime bond and trust. There is a great deal of talent and design diversity to experience at O.P.Jenkins. Please let me help partner you with one of our designers for your future design and interior fashion needs.

BLAIR BRIGHT

Blair Bright has been with OP Jenkins Furniture since 2012, and has loved every minute! Graduating from Tennessee Technological University with a Housing & Design degree, Blair enjoys making any house feel like a home. Mixing old pieces with new is Blair's favorite way to design. Her goal is to work thoroughly to satisfy each individual in getting the exact look they want and need.

DONOVAN SWICK

I personally love reclaimed pieces and antiques. My goal is to achieve the style that my clients seek for their projects, but I also strive to use designs, styles and themes that are timeless in nature. I am inspired by the elegance, beauty and quality forms of many eras of history. Proper design never goes out of style.
With over a decade of experience in upper-end retail and interior design, I have completed countless commercial and residential projects locally, regionally and nationally. Several rooms of my work have been featured on HGTV.com Designer Portfolio and I have appeared on the TV show DIY to the Rescue.

JAMES HAUN

I have a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Interior Design from the University of Tennessee. For over twenty years I have been designing commercial and residential interiors with eight of those years designing custom furniture, kitchens, and baths. My residential designs have been published in local design publications such as Cityview Magazine.

JENNY GUZA

I feel so fortunate and blessed that everyday I am privileged enough to make a living doing what I love. My job as a designer is to take the vision you have for your space and turn it into reality. I enjoy working in many design styles and can appreciate a contemporary space as well as a traditional one. The addition of twin boys to my family in 2009 has made me truly value the need for a space that is as useful as it is beautiful.
Over the years, I have worked in many aspects of design and I now use all of my acquired skills to create functionally beautiful spaces. I love space planning and pulling together fabrics and finishes to complete a room. My years as lead designer for a major home builder taught me that the character of a home comes through the details.
The beauty of working with me at OP Jenkins is that I have the ability to help you with your home from start to finish. I can assist you with space planning, finishes, lighting, furnishings, rugs, window coverings and even accessories. Please contact me at jguza@opjenkinsfurniture.com or visit me at the store so we can start designing the home of your dreams.

JESSICA WILKERSON

My style is simply classic and clean. I love to work with both traditional and modern elements to create a look that feels timeless yet, interesting. I started my career with OPJ in 2010 after graduating with my degree in Interior Design and in the years since I have completed a wide variety of projects ranging from entire homes to one room remodels. My goal as a designer is always to create spaces that are both functional and aesthetic. Residential design is my passion and I enjoy working in every aspect of it from the building process to the very last accessory that goes in.

JEY STAMPS

Growing up next door to an antique dealer started a love of beautiful interiors and furniture for Jey Stamps. While earning her degree in Interior Design from the University of Georgia and studying abroad, she continued to learn more about furniture and art. Working in Charlotte and Atlanta for a high end design firm, Jey learned the importance of creating timeless interiors that celebrate the beauty of everyday life. Her favorite furniture items are antique rugs, contemporary art and classic skirted lounge chairs. Jey joined the OP Jenkins family in 2007 as the head buyer. She is a proud wife and mother, as well as an avid cook and reader. 

KIMBERLY JACKSON

I am hesitant to say that I have a specific style. I like a variety of styles, and using an eclectic mix of styles, patterns and textures makes my job enjoyable for me. I enjoy creating a space that looks like it has evolved over time, whether we are utilizing family heirlooms or starting from scratch. I have been with O.P. Jenkins since 2009 after a move from Georgia, but helping people make warm and cozy spaces has been something I have done for a long time.

LORIE BRIEGEL

I have been a part of the O. P. Jenkins Furniture and Design team since 2009. During this time, I have created environments that compliment and reflect the lifestyles and personality of every client. Having earned an Interior Design degree, partnered with experience, I have the ability to design projects that are functional, comfortable, within budget, and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I have been featured in Sequoyah Hills Living magazine, participated in the Knoxville City Tour 2015 and have created beautiful spaces in a variety of styles.
STEPHANIE MONTGOMERY

As a designer, I strive to approach each project with a thoughtful mindset. Each client is an opportunity to explore new ideas, and to envision the possibilities for what a space can become. I tend to approach design with a combination of skill and intuition. I believe creativity and craftsmanship are bound by the ability to seamlessly link pieces of a puzzle, until the project comes to life with an effortless beauty. I believe in working hard, but also working smart, using materials and design concepts that adhere to both a client's budget and tastes. Having worked in the industry since 2003, I think that my strength as a designer is aesthetic awareness. Each space is a blank canvas, and my role is simply to curate the process so that each project reaches it's full potential. I look forward to many exciting challenges, and to working with such an extraordinary clientele. Call me today to schedule your design consultation!

"I worked with Stephanie to furnish my new apartment and it was a fabulous experience, every step of the way! From discerning my style and taste, to creating a look, to finding the best pieces and accessories to work in the space, Stephanie was exceptional. My home would never look as good as it does without her help and great ideas, and my family and I are incredibly grateful."

-Kathleen Finch, President of HGTV, DIY Network, and Great American Country
