Interior Design Shopping
In need of furniture, rugs, lighting or accessories??? You need my help. I have a small shop area at 120 South Churton Street, Hillsborough. Featured there will be a few vignettes. Usually there are 6 – 12 different styles of lamps/lighting along with art, mirrors, rug samples, a few accessories and wallpaper books. Yes, certain styles of wallpaper are IN again.
Additionally, I have catalogs (and we can look on line for close up views) of a number of lines from which I purchase items directly. Most of these I have personally seen at the High Point Furniture Market. One of these lines is a rug supplier. Once we have determined a couple of options in rug designs, this supplier will ship an 18″ sample (or the smallest rug in stock) so that you can see the color, texture and design in your home prior to purchasing. A rug is such a large piece of the design that its importance is great and must be just perfect and this
process assures us of that!
I have companies from whom custom sofas and chairs have been ordered and design clients who continue to rave over these furniture pieces even decades later. The quality of these is so great that we have recovered them in new fabrics years later as colors changed in their homes!
If you need/desire to actually SIT on a furniture piece to make your purchasing decision, I work with a few local stores. For a small shopping fee and a commission paid to me from the stores, I precede you to the store to preselect the styles appropriate for your needs. You tryout the seating and once a decision is made on the style, I select fabric from the manufacturer’s options. If we do not find what we like, most companies will allow us to COM (provide our own fabric for the item).
If the needs are greater still than my shop, the companies from whom I purchase and those local furniture stores, we can do a shopping trip to High Point. There are design shopping fees associated with this based on your needs and on the time involved!
Shopping fees could be as small as an initial consultation fee ($200) and upward!
It is all based on your needs and budgets!
