Meet Danielle Gundrum, CAPS, designer extraordinaire, Oasis Showrooms, Lebanon, PA.

She started out…
earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Arcadia University, specializing in interior design. After working for a custom homebuilder, she migrated to the kitchen and bath industry. That was in 2009 and she’s been loving the fast pace ever since, working on large and small residential and commercial projects, both in new construction and remodeling.

You may have seen her…
in Central Pennsylvania’s premier design magazine Susquehanna Style, where she talked about bathroom trends, new products and her dream bathroom. Or when The National Kitchen & Bath Association selected her for its 2014 30 under 30 elite group of forward-thinking young professionals.

She can help you…
by first listening carefully to what you need, and what you like and don’t like. “Then I can begin to direct you to the appropriate products. I can sketch up your new space and even help you pick paint colors. I like to give you as much individual time as I can and not rush you, even if it takes multiple appointments.”

She likes to…

“offer something you didn’t think about initially like a heated towel bar or a steam shower.”

She knows….
how hard it is to visualize how everything will come together. “So we create a live concept board with your selections; faucet, color samples, tile and more.”

She hopes…
you won’t become so constricted by an allowance or budget that you sacrifice getting exactly what you want. “It’s good to know where you want to be; it’s also good to have some flexibility.”

She goes beyond…

product selection and works side by side with your contractor or builder so you don’t have to worry about anything.

She loves …

the DXV Classic Movement and the Golden Era. “The widespread Landfair faucet with cross handles exudes classic. The Randall single-handle faucet has a substantial weight to it. It feels good in your hand. And I’m very excited about Oak Hill.”

She’s also passionate …
about ceramics. “I have my own pottery wheel and sometimes I just need to get my hands in the clay and the mud, and make something as an artisan. It brings me back to my center.”

Information on pottery:

Bowls & Cups - Title: Stone Bowls - These functional bowls are made from a mold of a stone wall at Arcadia University

Bowls & Cups - Title: 'Styrofoam' Porcelain Cups - I made these using a mold of Styrofoam cups. Fact: Styrofoam cups last forever in a landfill. Why not make them out of porcelain? Now they will last forever and not harm the environment.

Rose - Title: The Rose - I hand built abstract pieces to create one larger object.

Bowl - Title: Large Bowl - I added broken glass on the inside of the bowl. During the firing process in the kiln the glass melts and interacts with the glaze creating a colorful crackle texture.
