Larry first met the woman of the home. After viewing our website, and being intrigued by the creative designs, her curiosity was aroused. She was the concerned that the beautiful photos were not a true representation of the store. She walked in tentatively with a friend and was astounded that the showroom was actually more beautiful than the website.
We spent an hour together so the process could be adequately explained. She's a young mother who just purchased a beautiful Mediterranean style home in Northern New Jersey. She always dreamed of finding a designer who could interpret her dreams into the reality of a beautiful home. A colorful, bright home filled with creative designs. She promised to return at a future date.
A few weeks later the design oriented lady, returned with the quality conscious husband. Meeting Pia for the first time, they were both immediately impressed with the design capabilities and creative ideas that Pia started to set forth. People are so hesitant these days to shop in a furniture store. Who to trust? Who really has the talent to design? Who really cares what the end result is, as opposed to just selling anything?
We care. This is our livelihood. We have spent a combined 55 years insuring that clients are more than just satisfied. We like to THRILL clients with design, color, service and follow up. We sell dreams, where others only sell furniture.
Let's begin with the design plan.
A beautiful entrance calls for unique pieces. A custom art sculpture measuring 5ft. by 10ft. is a stunning creation of shape and air brushed lacquers. Pia selected the painting scheme on the walls to coordinate with the sculpture. Painting an entire home is difficult when multiple colors are used. As an artist, Pia is able to select for you the perfect balance of bold and sophisticated.
A custom area rug graces the entrance and announce to visitors that this is a special home. A credenza and matching mirror complete the entrance design.
Family Room & Dinette
An open floor plan is both challenging and fulfilling. Every setting is in the same sight line so color coordination is key. A lively color palette is used on the ultrasuede sectional, and continues in the custom area rug. While lounging on the sectional, the dinette and kitchen counter stools are visible. The fabric on the throw pillows is also placed on the backs of the dinette chair, and the custom leather on the inside of the chairs coordinates perfectly.
Our work is all about he details. We take the time to add all these little touches, so you could spend years enjoying your furniture, and loving your home.
Home Office & Sitting Room
A home office doesn't necessarily call for unstylish bookcases and a desk. The office is in a beautiful room surrounded by windows and visible from all the other rooms. How about two luxurious leather swivel chairs, stylish ottomans and a custom area rug? We made the area perfect for that nap you need when the office work gets to be too much.
Custom Rug Drawings
One of the highlights of our business is the custom area rugs. Below, you see hand drawings by Pia. No computer templates, no pre-made patterns.
Every rug is designed to fit the shapes and colors of your furniture and your room. They are one-of-a-kind in the world. You are the proud owner of artwork for your floor.
We thank this beautiful family for the honor of designing their new home. They are thrilled with our work, as the quote below shows. Pia is in the home on the day of delivery and installation to make sure every detail is covered. We do not leave your happiness in the hands of others. We are there every step of the way to insure your satisfaction. This is not a one-time transaction. This is the start of a relationship that we hope lasts for many years. How many furniture stores out there complete a design by exchanging gifts with the client?
Very special clients. Very special family. Friends.
Client's Own Words
"Pia, we wanted to take the time to let you know how much we enjoyed working with you throughout the past year. Our house, although structurally sound, was truly a blank slate when you first met us. Your ideas, great taste, and attention to detail turned our house into a warm, well-appointed, functional place to live. One of the nicest and most refreshing things about you and Larry is that you guys are so understandable. You do not subscribe the usual method of traipsing through the merchandise mart for countless hours in search of fabrics, furniture, etc. Initially, you spent time learning my tastes, likes and dislikes. After that, you made it easy by providing me with many choices of furniture pieces, fabrics, etc.; all within my price range and taste requirements. I can assure you that your service made my life much easier! Since we began working together, I have passed your name onto several of our family friends. I know that once they are ready to remodel their homes they will go to you, everybody loves our home! You did a wonderful job and I hope we can work together again in the future.The dining room and living room is next!"
