Some clients have a clear vision of the design style they want. Others prefer to rely on our extensive experience and knowledge to arrive at their ultimate goal. Each project is unique, so we begin with a detailed conversation about your ultimate goals. Because we have 75+ years of experience, we know all the questions to ask. After this, our team can go to work to design and implement the perfect solution for your specific needs.
We discuss the specifics of your situation, either on the phone or optionally in person.
In the initial phase of our design process we discuss a wide range of questions such as: What are your needs and wants? What is wrong with your existing furniture? What is your budget? Does the project have a hard deadline? What style of furniture do you prefer? Do we need to meet in person? And big picture questions such as, what kind of image do you want for your company?
- Discuss your needs and wants
- what is wrong with your existing furniture
- how soon do you need furniture
- what is your budget
- what style of furniture do you prefer
- meet in person
- what kind of image would you like for your company
In the planning phase we roll up our sleeves and begin the process of figuring out the details that will lead to the projects success.
This includes drawing up floor plans, proposing lines of furniture, selecting materials and colors, nailing down a budget and coordinating meetings with all parties involved so we can be sure we are all on the same page.
- draw up floor plans
- show lines of furniture that meets your needs
- start selecting materials and colors
- making sure we stay within budget
- setup meetings with all parties involved to confirm everyone is on the same page/track
Before we implement the details from the planning phase, we confirm your approval on all aspects of the design.
This includes revising the final floor plans, confirm we are still within budget, confirm we have the aesthetic style the client would like to project, confirm that we addressing all the problems from Step #1.

We finalize and confirm all details before the last step of implementation begins.
