Our Design Services

We pride ourselves in staffing our locations with a qualified team of Chicagoland's best Interior Designers. Our Designers are carefully selected and highly trained to provide our clients with the ultimate in design expertise. We offer whatever level of assistance you need, for whatever size project you have:

In Home Consultations

Being so visual, our Designers work best when they can evaluate your space. We provide complimentary In-Home Consultations. With these consultations, we will:

  • Get to know you, your lifestyle, and project needs through several appointments.
  • Come out, measure your space, evaluate the overall project, and take detailed notes on your needs and completed vision.
  • Present floor plan options and selections based on what works best for your space, lifestyle and budget.

  • Product information and custom options available, along with price quotes.
  • Research and presentation of options that meet your project or piece needs.
  • Assistance with fabric, finish, and color selections.
  • Sketching out your space, or detailed scaled floor plans if you supply your room measurements.
  • Order placement and follow up through delivery.
