After obtaining a Graduate Degree in Interior Design from University of Oklahoma, designer Kelly Gale Amen did the unthinkable: turned living with art into art of living. Now, after almost five decades of excellence in interior design, Kelly’s name is a renowned brand.
The journey of KGA Design starts in 1974, when Kelly quit his two-year job at Foley’s to launch a brand of his own. It took two years for his work to grace the cover of a national magazine for the first time. Since then, his acclaimed interior vision has been displayed in many of the world’s biggest publications, from Vogue to Southern Accents to Residential Interiors. He designed homes, stores, boats, and even a controversial condom-filled Tiffany’s window in 1987. His projects earned him awards like Traditional Designer Of The Year in 1998, and the Texas Star of Design award in 2008.
