Dan Rak is a fresh new design star with a comfortable and inviting, Midwest industrial-chic sensibility that is resonating with clients and the design industry alike. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Dan has maintained the passion for real estate and design that he acquired as a young man during his first experience seeing a well-designed and perfectly appointed model home. It wasn’t long before he realized he had a penchant, not only for design, but for reinventing his own residences.
But as is so often the case, Dan’s obsession for real estate and interiors was temporarily downgraded to hobby status as he pursued his accounting and law degrees from Michigan State University. After graduating from law school, Dan spent five years with one of the “Big Four” professional service firms practicing tax in the mergers and acquisitions context. During this time, Dan developed strong project management skills which have proven to be an invaluable asset in the design and construction business. While his career as a tax lawyer was challenging and rewarding, Rak never lost his passion for real estate and design. Buying, designing, and flipping homes with sensational results and accolades, it became evident that this was his career path. Soon requests for his design services came pouring in organically. Ultimately deciding to pursue his passion on a full-time basis, Dan left the legal world behind and has built a flourishing business in interior design with his well-established firm in Chicago’s River West neighborhood.
Today, Dan Rak Design’s discerning and appreciative clientele call upon him for magnificent design and five-star service. Dan’s precise, razor-like approach to interiors is striking and recognizable in an instant; His ever-growing body of work defines him as a true a force in the industry.
