About Rachel Lenchner

Rachel Lenchner

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, I now follow in the footsteps of my grandparents and Today’s Home founders Audrey and Sig Lenchner and my parents Jeff and Jill Lenchner. It didn't take long for me to realize home design is in my blood. After graduating from The University of Pittsburgh with a BA in Business Administration I lived in New York City where I worked as the Wholesale Marketing Coordinator for jewelry designer David Yurman. My time in the city allowed me to explore my interest in the arts and expand my creative talents. I began my own company making handmade cellphone cases and large scale collages. After moving back from New York I started my career at Today’s Home in the summer of 2015. I am passionate about design and believe I can bring fun fresh ideas to your home.
