FROM THE DESK OF THE DESIGNER
I get it. You've been down this path before with “decorators.” You’ve trusted them with both your vision and your dollars only to be let down on both counts.
Maybe you fell into buying an entire room plan from a big brand store and it never felt “like you”. Maybe you were swayed by the glossy catalog image of what looked like the perfect sofa, only to find it uncomfortable and virtually unusable after less than a year!
You’ve probably bought, (and returned) so many pillows, lamps, and rugs, that your partner probably thinks you have a shopping issue and frankly just doesn’t "understand what the problem is!" The whole decorating experience has been such a waste of both time and money that you are gun shy about letting anyone give you input.
I understand and that is why my process is different.
Ideally, you want to see options. You want to share in the experience, feeling like you can bring suggestions and ideas to the table too! You know you aren’t a designer, but the dreaming, imagining and internet cruising is fun!
And isn’t this supposed to be fun?
But somehow, it isn’t anymore, and you just want it done already so that you can focus on the things that really matter…
At HAUS & HOME, I teach design professionals and homeowners how to make INFORMED BUYING DECISIONS, when investing in upholstery, ensuring they will be happy for years to come!
Seeing firsthand how the average person uses their upholstery and hearing their feedback and concerns, has taught me how to analyze a client's needs and translate into the perfect sofa or chair for their family! I have personally sourced fabric and upholstery/reupholstery for over 2,000 projects in the Kansas City and surrounding area. That equates to about 30 pieces of upholstery out my door a month. That's a lot of tushes and thousands of yards of fabric! I've come across just about every-single-thing that could possible rear its ugly head!
