The Society

Karen Bowery is the energetic matriarch of the hospitality-centric firm, The Society. This spirited design collective, based in the Pacific Northwest, has made a mark on the lifestyle, boutique, and resort scenes by partnering with major brands.

 

From her southern roots, Karen made her way to a small firm in Oregon to start a flourishing career. Starting as the sole interior designer at Ankrom Moisan Architects, she masterfully grew their interior design team to one of the largest in the region. From here, a love of creating the ultimate user experience fueled her ambition to form The Society.

 

Under Karen’s guidance, this specialty design group has completed three Moxy hotels with three currently in design. Having worked with a range of developers, industry experts, and financiers, she brings an unparalleled breadth of knowledge to every project.
