Jana Manning


Jana Manning was born in New York City where her parents (picture at left), creative artisans, migrated from Europe and cultivated Jana’s instinct for style and design.

At 22 she entered the international fashion and luxury goods industry. Her ability to impact business via the interior environment earned her VP positions at two of the world’s most respected fashion and luxury goods companies. Based in NY, but working in such cities as Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Paris, Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires, Jana was responsible for opening showrooms, retail spaces, and corporate offices as well as managing international Sales, Marketing, and Divisional P&L.

In 2002 she formed the Manning Design Group to shift emphasis back to her creative roots.

Jana has earned a reputation for elevating common spaces into extraordinary environments while keeping her clients calm and confident throughout the process.

She is a graduate of Marymount College (of Fordham University) and holds degrees in both Interior Design and International Business. She is proud to have taken and passed the rigorous NCIDQ exam, administered through the State Board of Architects, and is a Professional Member and Past President of ASID NJ (American Society of Interior Designers).
