Siblings Leanne and Steve Ford enliven older Pittsburgh-area homes with beautiful and unique custom designs in HGTV’s new home renovation series Restored by the Fords. Leanne, an interior designer, first gained national attention when she restored and designed a turn-of-the-century schoolhouse in her hometown. Today, Leanne’s designs can be found in homes across the country and reflect what she describes as her signature “modern yet lived-in” aesthetic.

Leanne and her work have been featured in numerous national publications including Architectural Digest, Martha Stewart and The New York Times, to name a few.

Born with a knack for creative carpentry, Steve is a licensed contractor who tackles unconventional construction challenges that bring his sister’s unique vision to life. His portfolio includes store and restaurant design, displays and set design for national retail brands, residential renovations, as well as the restoration of a corporate headquarters. Steve also is the founder of Surf Pittsburgh, the city’s first river surfing company. In his free time, he can be found surfing on local rivers, snowboarding or making custom furniture.
