Jeannette Andamasaris Principal Partner - Director of Interior Design
Jeannette landed in Brooklyn, NY from Virginia, by way of Greece, South Africa, and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, bringing experiences just as varied as the diverse places she has called home. Her work ranges from performance art, dance, and marine biology, all of which took her around the world and led her to architecture and interior design. She holds an MFA in Interior Design from Parsons School of Design, where she won the Thesis Award for her project, Adoration. Professionally, Jeannette has been a project manager on numerous design-build projects and previously founded JAID Style, a practice with extensive range from ground up buildings to commercial and hospitality interior renovations. As a Principal Partner of FIGURE, Jeannette oversees creative direction and leads projects through the interior design process.

Amy Morris Senior Associate
Forever an art and design lover, Amy has followed her passions through work and study in Spain, D.C., and Charleston, SC. In 2009, she founded and ran her own photography practice, focusing on lifestyle as well as commercial real estate imagery in the Charleston area. As a Charlottesville, Virginia native, she returned home and has since been working on interior design projects with JAID and FIGURE. With FIGURE, she gets the chance to work on a wide variety of design phases, and loves the opportunity to facilitate in the creation of unique spaces to meet clients' needs. Not to mention, it allows her a good reason for owning a ridiculous amount of paint-fan decks.
