Jennifer Payne, principle designer and owner of The Glasswing Company, LLC began her career in 2000, with an internship at an interior design firm based in the north Chicago suburbs after obtaining her BFA in Interior Design. This opportunity gave her the chance to learn the business of model home merchandising, private home staging and high-end residential design. Instantly, she fell in love with designing model home interiors and staging, and knew she wanted to build her career around this specialty.


“The design is not about the designer! It’s about the client’s vision & guiding them in the best possible direction to achieve their design goals.”

Over the last 19 years, her career has morphed into a blend of working with builders & developers designing model homes, staging homes for sale with private sellers and realtors, visual design working for home décor retailers and designing high-end residential interiors.


She has been fortunate enough to have done this work all over the country, plugging herself and her staff into building & design trends nationwide, as well as having a keen sensibility of merchandising trends in home décor retail.

All of this experience resulted in her achieving her dream of establishing The Glasswing Company in 2006 where she has capitalized on her hands-on education, setting the company standards high for the type of SUPERIOR SERVICE she feels is crucial to achieving great partnerships with her clients.


The Glasswing Company employs the most creatively talented and passionate designers, who demonstrate the company mission of providing personalized service, while crafting inspired interiors specific to each client’s needs, both in home staging and residential design.

Our FOCUS is to create the perfect visual sales tool for builders & home sellers, and to inspire buyers and the bold renovators! Our end game GOAL is to help our builders & sellers SELL, and our buyers and renovators LIVE!
