Our Story

FIG Home knows that every person desires a beautiful home filled with elements which convey a sense of history. Regardless of whether that provenance is real or fictionalized, FIG’s timeless designs seamlessly blend old and new, found and inherited, high-end glamour and rustic appeal to create a striking yet functional living space. Working closely with a select group of proven and respected architects, and contractors, FIG Home’s team is available to take on a wide range of projects, including full-scale, new builds to complete remodels. 

FIG Home’s Principle and creative talent, Kit Garven was drawn into the world of interior design at a very early age. Influenced by visits with her “expat” grandparents in Mexico City, Kit admired their posh, New York glam inspired high-rise apartment and as well as their Spanish Colonial-styled weekend home. Her younger days were spent playing on the expansive grounds of the Beaumont Art Museum—housed in a mansion designed by architect John F. Staub, as well as visiting with the girls next door, daughters of an architect/designer, in their French Provencal pied-à-terre. 

After studying interior design and art history at Savannah College of Art and Design, she returned to Texas to start her own residential interior design business. For more than 20 years, Kit has become known for her ability to create architectural integrity in a home, infusing her designs with both vintage and modern elements that reflect the style and personality of its owners. Her experience as the owner of a trade showroom instilled knowledge of the many facets of how the construction and design trades interrelate and the order in which projects must be organized to be both timely and cost effective.
