What does your business offer that is unique to similar businesses?
Our business will be unique due to our handpicked designers. We hope to lease to very upscale retail designers in the Dallas area.
What is the most important part of your job on a daily basis?
Servicing our customers – without them, we won’t be able to exist. We will service our customers so they will help us grow by continuing to do business with us and recommend us to friends and associates.
What are your keys to success?
Beautiful, newly remodeled facility, awesome products, made from the finest of fabrics, and design. Awesome customer service. We are so excited about becoming part of the community in the downtown area. We want to get involved in everything the square offers to our customers.
What surprises you most about your job?
How much it doesn’t ever feel like work. When you love what you do, it’s never hard or boring. I have a fainting couch I found at a flea market from the 1800s. I can’t wait to refurbish this piece for my shop.
Tell us something most people wouldn’t know about your company.
I have been in this business for many years. I am a furniture redesigner; I search everywhere for the most unique pieces – chairs, fainting couches, chase lounges, armoires. I rebuild, repaint and reupholster. We are moving into the historic bank on the square built in 1912. The interior is undergoing a fabulous makeover now.
