Our Specialists and Founders
Marlys Wiegand, Interior Designer Allied ASID
Raised in the peaceful Midwest, Marlys caught the love for decorating, fine art, and nature at an early age. After graduating with a BA in Interior Design, she moved to the Southwest, then to the Pacific Northwest - where she started Adrette Designs with her husband Jens to assist homeowners and designers with locally made custom fabric creations of high quality.
For Marlys, listening is key to helping customers achieve their dream home! When she is not designing window fashions or searching for perfect textiles, Marlys likes to grow delicious tomatoes, veggies, and berries in her garden, and she loves to fish, hike, or camp in the great outdoors. That’s where she recharges her creative energy.
Jens 'Jay' Wiegand, Managing Director
Growing up in Northern Europe with fabric, fashion and design, Jens decided to follow his dream - a professional pilot career in North America.
When he met Marlys, love struck, and a new chapter began!
At Adrette Designs, he manages things to make sure they happen in a timely fashion. Jens firmly believes everyone deserves a clean, natural environment for healthy living and sleeping, and he is studying Building Biology, the art and science of creating natural healthy indoor environments.
Jens is also passionate about lifelong learning, sustainable building, enjoying nature, friends and family.
Portland’s leading source for custom-made draperies and fabric specialties, Adrette Designs is a family owned Oregon business. Managed by its founders Jens and Marlys, their main concern is your satisfaction.
