Mentoring young professionals is key to the future of design

Madeleine Dymling, LEED AP, CAPS, AKBD, believes in being generous with her knowledge by mentoring novice professionals.

Dymling’s own path began when she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design and Furniture Design from Kendall College of Art and Design (now a Ferris State affiliate) in Grand Rapids, MI. Her first jobs out of school were with large architectural firms in New York City. Among other jobs throughout her career, she was a senior designer for a replacement hospital for the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL.

Dymling next joined a boutique architectural firm that did high-end residential projects and boutique hotels, although her first residential experience was as a student at Kendall when she assisted kitchen designer and fellow KBDN Innovator Linda Larish, CMKBD, with drafting.

When she started Flatbrook & Co., the work seemed to gravitate towards kitchens and baths, large projects where an addition was involved or a total relocation of the kitchen or bath. Today, she is the president of Flatbrook & Co., in Canaan, NY, a company that takes pride in shaping new emerging talents. Flatbrook is a multi-disciplinary company that works in a variety of mediums, such as ceramics, fine woodworking, metal work and custom prints, all of which are incorporated in various Flatbrook projects.
