Meet the Team
Showroom Manager David Bessenbacher’s love for the art and the logic that create great interiors led him from his Kansas City upbringing to Chicago’s International Academy of Design. Armed with a BA in Interior Design, he joined the Chicago design community, and over the next decade became adept at several design disciplines, working as a draftsman, administrator, project manager, and kitchen designer. All of that has prepared him to ensure that Artistic Tile’s Chicagoland clientele have a showroom experience at once enjoyable, creative, inspiring, and beyond expectation.
When not working with his team in the Mart, he is a dedicated indoor gardener, with over 60 plants that love their Lakeview sunshine. David can be reached at (312)670-0612 or at email@example.com.
