Buyers Beware!

I just got back from the Las Vegas furniture market, fresh with new ideas and knowledge about how we can better serve you and improve the studio.

There is only one major disappointment from my trip: some manufacturers are worrying more about making money, and less about making great stuff for you to buy and to improve your home. I am not saying profit and making money are a bad thing, what I believe is that we make money by offering great furniture and great values--not by cutting corners and utilizing fancy marketing tactics.

Our goal is to serve as an advocate for our clients. This means finding the best possible products for the best value. We attend three furniture markets a year to make this happen. We love looking for uniqueness, because this is what separates your home from everyone else, and we also appreciate quality, because furniture should be stylish, well made and something you can enjoy for a long time.

Are you afraid of making a mistake?

We meet guests and clients on a daily basis that are afraid of making a mistake when it comes to buying furniture or anything else for their home. It is a big decision and you want every dollar you spend to be as effective as possible.

We have a couple solutions available that can make decorating your home more fun and less stressful.

We allow guests to take small furniture pieces, lamps and accessories home to try it before they buy. The best way to visualize furniture is to actually see it in your home during the daylight and also evening hours when there is absence of natural light. If you like a piece that you try, simply send us a check or call with your credit card.

We have a wonderful staff that can help assess your home and situation, coming up with the best design plan possible. We offer room layouts, work with your color palette and find ways to create the perfect room.

We can come out and assess the situation, making sure a piece of furniture will fit into your home. If you have tight doorways, narrow hallways or furniture going up or down stairs, we can help make sure your furniture will fit before you order.

These are just a couple simple solutions that can help make decorating and furnishing your home a fun experience. Buying furniture shouldn't have to be a stressful experience and we are here to help.
