A Unique Collaboration

Bonded by a passion for color, texture and truism, Doug Zander and his designers are an unconventional family, characterized by clever elegance, sophisticated style and active imagination. A collaborative group of minds with years and years of combined time working together, this team has carved out Zander’s unique niche in the Madison interior design community, and they’re ready to enhance your home with their signature attention to detail.

Although they comprise a close team, each designer’s distinct personality and source of inspiration allows for a perfect system of checks and balances, of skills and expertise, of innovative ideas and creative executions. And together, they produce endlessly unique results. Here is a bit about each of them:


“Every client is so different and I enjoy getting to know them and providing them with a unique space and design. I stay up to date with trade magazines, designers, and the latest styles. Fashion is a big influence for me as well. I have even been known to pick up finds at flea markets when I see just the right thing for my client.”

“Zander’s as a whole has a very unique set of designers that, when together, create a very inspirational environment. They make client’s feel comfortable with the design process, and I admire their fearless use of color and pattern when designing.”

Roxanne Gardner· Business Manager, 18 years at Zander’s Interiors

“My love for design started at a very young age, growing up around the building industry I was always interested in reading blue prints and critiquing floor plans. I love to challenge myself with design – whether that be with color, texture, pattern, or space planning. I love being able to come up with unique and creative solutions to all design dilemmas.”

Chelsea Goeser· Junior Designer

“It has been a pleasure to join the Zander’s team in joyful pursuit of my lifelong interior design avocation.  Previously trained in philosophy and music with a M.S. Degree in Education, my interior design degree complements an already disciplined approach to understanding and educating others about design.  Perpetual curiosity and playfulness are key components of the design process for me and I am thrilled to share it with the Zander’s community.”
