As a Morris County, NJ Interior Designer and Home Stager, I pride myself on my extensive product knowledge, spending hundreds of hours researching where to find the same furnishings, rugs and accessories for 30-40% less! In addition, I receive 30-50% off from local furniture and rug wholesale dealers and pass that saving on to you!
This affords YOU a high-end, luxe design without the designer price tag. An example of this was a recent dining room redesign. The job cost a fraction of what you’d pay retail. Let me explain.
I purchased this beautiful dining set with linen nail head chairs and driftwood table top finish along with a few new accessories. The china cabinet and breakfront are excellent quality and in great condition so we incorporated them into the design, while still giving this space a completely new look…
This exact same dining set sells at Horchows (a part of Neimen Marcus, which carries beautiful, high-end products) for $4,200. However, I found it for 50% less on Joss & Main, an online discount store, which does not disclose the furniture manufacturer, so unless you really know your products, you don’t know what you’re going to get. However, I knew the manufacture (Riverside furniture) and was able to procure it for $1, 950! That’s more than a 50% savings! However, Joss & Main can be hit or miss so I also found this dining set at Cymax for 30% less; still an incredible savings!
Now this dining room (seen in HOUZZ.COM) has a sophisticated, elegant restraint emblematic of vintage French neoclassicism with an updated look. The linen, nail head chairs with driftwood finish are the perfect balance of rustic elegance adding texture and interest.
My point is, hiring a talented, educated interior designer will not only afford you a beautiful, high-end designer look, you’ll save money because of the deals we are able to get on furnishing, rugs, accessories with our designer discounts, wholesale connections and most important, product knowledge.
