We could spend all the advertising dollars in the world, and it still would never measure up to the 2 basic principles of business.

  1. Satisfy your clients, and they will always return to you to purchase more.
  2. Satisfy your clients, and their positive word of mouth will bring many new clients.

Now that the main floor and bedrooms are complete, this satisfied client, and friend, is returning with an interesting design challenge. Her dream is to have a beautiful beach house, right near the water, so she can enjoy the sights, aromas, and beauty of the water. Okay, not yet. Instead, for the time being, the client wants her basement to emulate that wonderful feeling a beach gives to all of us. That's right. We have to make this area feel like a beach resort, coconut sunscreen aroma, etc.

First, the main wall will be painted as a large mural of a beautiful ocean scene. The soft blue and sand reclining chaises will look out at the 'ocean'. Swivel chairs in a beach motif fabric, coordinating bar stool and beach umbrella awnings as custom window treatments will complete the room. Accents of custom waterfalls and custom sculptures are now being designed.

We are hoping this 'dream' beach house will be so realistic, the client will call us to complain about 'sunburn'. Pass the pina colada.

After viewing this page, and then referring to the rest of this client's home (#11), you can grasp the creativity that contemporary furniture represents. Shape, color, design all created by Pia after understanding the client's requests.  So many furniture stores are bottomless pits of boredom and sameness. 'The Contemporary Couch' represents the ultimate in uniqueness bringing color and excitement to your home.  We understand modern furniture and all of the design elements involved.

As quoted in the Spring 2008 edition of 201 Home magazine:

"I came across Pia's website. Three visits, countless measurements, and hundreds of fabric choices and styles later, my dream sofa-purple ostrich leather couch was created. Pia really listens to you. I never felt pressured to buy anything. Pia has completed 3 rooms of my home and is currently designing my basement to look like a beach house; complete with waterfall, palm trees and a tiki bar."

This lovely client and her charming mother were a pleasure to work with.  The client bought a new townhouse and needed everything!  I designed her home to be representative of her - strong and feminine.  She loves lavenders and used an ostrich lavender on a snake sectional but coordinated with silvers and grays.  We did a custom rug and coordinating window treatments along with all the artwork and accent pieces for the other rooms she already had furnished.  It pulled the look together. We also did a custom bedroom in a blush color with night stands the size of dressers and drawers under the bed because this customer has more shoes and handbags to store than me!  We did a triple dresser armoire combination with lots of feminine curves. Some might find the design process confusing; let us clarify:

Step 1:    Come into the showroom.  Browse through our selection.  Meet Pia and describe your thoughts of how you envision your home to be, and Pia will show you all the many design ideas that are here.

Step 2:    Pia comes to your home to take pictures and measurements and to talk more in order to get a feel for your home.

 

Step 3:    Pia makes a professional presentation to you, in the showroom, including scaled drawings, rug design and anything more you need for the room.

Step 4:    Color schemes, fabrics, paint colors are all presented for your approval.

 

 

These are threads that represent the colors of the future window treatments.

The colors used match the colors in the room perfectly. All for your approval before ordering.
 

Step 5:    Everything is ordered promptly.  As Pia and your family eagerly await delivery, you may use this time to paint your room using Pia's color choices and prepare your home for the new arrivals.

Step 6:    All of the furniture and accessories arrive in our warehouse in the promised delivery time.  All items are then inspected by Pia for her approval of quality and design.

Step 7:    Your furniture is delivered to your home and completely set-up by professional delivery men, accustomed to the special handling that this furniture requires.

Final Step: Enjoyment and pride of ownership that a beautiful home feels like when it is designed by Pia.  The oooh's and ahhh's of friends and relatives will put a big smile on your face!
