The president of our company, Andrea Folino, did not start her interior decorating career like most. Graduating from Kutztown University with a bachelor's degree in business/marketing, she was ready to begin her life in the business world. Andrea was hired as the marketing coordinator for a local home builder.
After working for the company a few months, Andrea saw potential to open an interior decorating company. She always had an eye for design and wanted to pursue a career in fashion, but was concerned job prospects would not be available in the area. Andrea then started thinking, "Why not make living spaces fashionable?" And so, Tendenza Fashion & Interiors was born. The name is pulled from her Italian heritage; Tendenza is Italian for trend.
Andrea attended the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design and earned a certificate in Home Interiors. She also has an Interior Decorator certificate from Penn Foster and is a Certified Interior Decorator from Certified Interior Decorators International (CID). Additionally, Andrea is earning her Home Staging license from the American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners. She also is a licensed Pennsylvania state Realtor, which allows her to understand how design can bring value to your home.
Andrea's passion for interiors is reflected in the beautiful surroundings that she creates by pulling from her visual merchandising background working for top retailers. An ability to collaborate with architects, contractors, and her clients have earned Andrea a well deserved reputation as a true professional.
