Cindy’s an Auburn graduate who keeps one foot in the door at Auburn University by serving on the Board of Advisors for the School of Interior Design. She and husband / business manager Jeff live at The Waters, a traditional neighborhood development, in Pike Road, Alabama where Cindy E. Barganier Interiors was the first business to open in the town square. They specialize in ground-up residential interior design and commercial projects. But Cindy loves smaller jobs, too, like when a customer needs a new sofa, a special painting, a rug, window-treatments, a plan developed; even a one-time design consultation is common and appreciated business. Cindy has been in the industry since 1980. She’s easy to work with and can provide endless references. In addition to interior design, Cindy is an accomplished product designer. Duralee Fabrics of New York, purchased one of her fabric designs and featured it in their Linea Graphics Collection. Travis & Company represents Cindy’s fabric line at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC) in Buckhead. She has also developed hand painted rugs, lamps, art, cosmetic bags, and a line of furniture targeting new urbanism communities like The Waters. Her design work, fabric and furniture designs, have been featured in Coastal Living, Southern Style, Spring in the South, Southern Lady, Camellia, Country Cottage, Montgomery Living, Southern Home, Alabama Magazine, Architectural Salvage News, River Region Living; and on design blogs My Design Chic, The House of Turquoise, Southern Hospitality, The Lettered Cottage, Doodle Home, Splendid Sass, and Houzz.

Cindy is one of the rare designers who has her own line of furniture specifically geared toward homes in the New Urbanism communities that tend to have a smaller footprint, higher ceilings and have a need for pieces that serve multiple purposes. The prototypes are rolling out as we speak and are beginning to appear on the products page of her web-site. Cindy also uses architectural salvage extensively in her practice in order to create new spaces with the authenticity and personality of old often placing an ancient relic into a contemporary space to create a "WOW" factor. She's exceptionally creative and personable which is a great combination for her clients.

I have had the priviledge to work with Cindy for the past 6 years. Cindy is a hard working, creative, and outgoing woman. Cindy has developed her own designs for fabric and for furniture. One of these designs has been picked up by the fabric company I represent, Duralee Fabrics, and placed in our Linea Graphics Collection. Cindy is also a very talented interior designer, bringing new direction to the interiors that she works. Cindy has a deep truth about her and takes her truths and beliefs in doing the best for her clients and in her designs. Not only is Cindy an awesome designer, on many different levels, she is also a wonderful mother, wife and friend to those of us who are blessed enough to have her in our lives and our corners. I feel blessed that Cindy confided and trusted me with her dreams and designs and I am honored to call Cindy my friend."
