Meet Lauren Renfrow
Founder and Creative Director
Lauren’s interest of rocks and all things Mother Nature started very early in her life. As a child she loved spending time outdoors and learning about the natural environment. As college approached, Lauren visited the University of Colorado at Boulder and knew it was the right fit. She spent weekends skiing or hiking around the mountains in Boulder and then graduated CU with a degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Biology specializing in Botany. She spent the early parts of her career working at an environmental consulting firm in Denver, CO specializing in hazardous waste and solid waste management auditing for clients including the US Air Force, US Air Force Reserve, and NASA.
After becoming a mother in 2006 to her darling daughter, Addison, Lauren’s life took a more homespun path. Lauren attributes her love of botany and growing up in a very social household where she learned “the art of the party” as her inspiration to launch her company, L Floral Design, in 2007. In 2009, she moved back to Big D, deep in the heart of the fabulous fete! She reopened her floral business in Dallas in 2010 at Kappa Tablescapes event. She loves to create over-stuffed arrangements with organic elements that have the ability to make people swoon. She began using quartz and citrine crystals as embellishments for her arrangements, and from this fascination an idea for a hand-built quartz lamp took root. From this lamp, Times Two Design by Lauren Renfrow was born. Lauren loves to create new products and believes in elevating the natural beauty of elements from the earth to artisan levels using acrylic and other embellishments. Her company focuses on creating entirely handmade items that are limited edition and totally unique.
All products are handmade in Dallas. Many of her home accessories are a must for the gracious hostess: napkin rings, vases, and coasters made of agate. She also has expanded her lamp line to include lamps made from slag glass (with a selection of nearly 20 different colors) and a variety of minerals including selenite, calcite, amethyst, and rose quartz. Her line also focuses on beautiful home accessories including the ever-popular agate lollipops in a variety of fun colors, quartz encrusted trays, brass mineral mounts, bookends, and adorned lacquer boxes that are at home in any chic space or coffee table. Lauren is continuously innovating and searching for the next beautiful way to elevate nature, follow her journey! Her products are sought after by myriad designers and can be seen at some of Dallas’ hottest shopping as well as amazing boutiques across the nation.
When not designing new products or working on all things times two design, Lauren is happiest spending time with her daughter on a powder day in the mountains or snorkeling at the beach. Often their sweet dog, Dash is in tow.
