Partners in Design

If you are a professional interior designer or professional design business, we invite you to join the Walter E. Smithe Furniture & Design Trade Program.

Your complimentary membership unlocks access to over 200 of the industry's best product lines, with new inventory coming in daily. Pass along current in-store discounts to your clients while earning a commission on every order placed.

Why shop multiple showrooms to get the look your client wants when you can get it in one place?

Our Space is Your Space

We have 11 showrooms throughout Chicagoland and northwest Indiana. Members are welcome to work on projects and meet with clients at any location. Need help while you're there? You will be paired with a designer at the location of your choosing, who can answer questions about everything from inventory and pricing, or where to find the coffee.

We Have it Covered

Once the order is placed, a Smithe Client Services representative will take over the duties of updating your client on order status and scheduling the delivery. Our professional white-glove delivery drivers look forward to meeting you at the install and assisting with bringing your design to life.

And we get it - mistakes happen. If something was measured wrong and a piece doesn't fit quite right, Smithe will help you and the client with reselection.

It's Not Goodbye at Delivery

Your clients have a direct line to Walter E. Smithe client service and warranty should any issues come up with their furniture. If you get the call, simply pass it along to us and we'll take it from there.
