“Phoenix interior designer Sandra Harrigan’s curriculum vitae reads like the textbook example of how to move ahead in the design field: an interior design degree from Northern Arizona University, followed by some 20 years of commercial interiors before launching her own residential design firm in 1998. It’s only when she casually mentions a two-year stint in Tucson does her career biography take off—literally. ‘I got married and followed my husband down to Tucson, where the only interiors job I could get was working for Gates Learjet Corporation,’ she explains. She worked on custom Learjet interiors for big corporations, sheikhs from Saudi Arabia, South American businessmen, singers and celebrities. ‘We probably did jets for people whom we didn’t want to know much about,’ Harrigan recalls with a laugh. ‘We also had to decline requests for strange, hidden storage spots in the planes’ One of her favorite jets? A sleek, ‘pristine’ all-white interior for the late talk-show host Johnny Carson. Harrigan’s ability to work within the confines of a tight floorplan served her well in a residential renovation project shown in this issue, for which she also received a First Place Award from the Arizona North Chapter ASID’s 2007 design competition, also spotlighted in this issue.”
