About Evelyn

head shot

Evelyn LaLicata is the owner of “DESIGN” by Evelyn, a couture window treatment and soft furnishings workroom in Brick, NJ. Becoming an artist from a very young age, she then studied Fine Arts through college, and in 1985, started an Interior Design business, which proved to be a natural talent.

From 1985-2001, Evelyn owned and operated Main Street Decorators, a 2500sq. ft. retail design center in the shore town of Manasquan, NJ, where she provided a full service drapery workroom in addition to a  beautiful showroom.

In 2001, Evelyn moved to Brick, NJ and refocused her business as a wholesale- to the trade only- workroom. She prides herself on her technical skills and the ability to create the masterpieces she fabricates for her designers ( some call her the “designer’s secret”…and others call her  “the swag whisperer”…)

Evelyn is a member of the Window Coverings Association of America (WCAA). Her work has been featured in the CHF magazine and twojDOM, a design publication in Europe. Her talent was showcased at the NJ Windows to Success in 2015 & 2016.

Evelyn is a sought after speaker in the industry  and is a professional Parkhill Swag Template Instructor ~ for more information about speaking opportunities, please visit Education.

Evelyn’s presentation, “Technology in the Workroom”,  demonstrates how to use graphic  software to draft outstanding custom templates and patterns. Evelyn has been using this technology to create patterns for the work created in the Gallery section.

Evelyn also provides very special service of custom made patterns for sale to her colleagues, so many wonderful treatments have been fabricated using this process.. Please view: Custom Pattern Drafting for more info.
