About obsidian design

Our Company

Obsidian Design, LLC, a Portland, Oregon based interior architecture design firm, was founded in 2016 by Chelsea Rodgers to continue her passion for excellence in design. Chelsea's experience includes over 10 years designing and managing projects throughout the Portland metro area and across the US and Canada. Obsidian Design is a certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) and Emerging Small Business (ESB).


Chelsea Rodgers, the Principal of Obsidian design has over 10 years of experience (portfolio here). She has a degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Portland as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Oregon. She lives with her little rescue family that includes 2 dogs, 2 cats, a bunny and fish. When she is not working or playing with her animals she can be found at home baking or out enjoying one of Portland's pubs or parks.


Our strategy is relationship building. We understand that referrals are our most powerful marketing tool. We  strive to solve the inevitable problems that arise in this business with creativity, warmth and humor.

Environment & Sustainability

We work with responsible contractors and seek to minimize demolition, recycle materials and specify recycled and sustainable materials in our designs.


Bruce Rodgers, Chelsea's father has a complimentary skill set as a graphic designer and illustrator (portfolio here). He does the marketing and business development for the company as well as drafting, permitting and other tasks. Learning this business has been exciting and rewarding for him. When he is not doing Obsidian work he is playing music, paddling, drawing, having a pint with Chelsea's mom or being a grandpa to all of her animals.
