We could talk about ourselves and our company all day. What really matters is the opinions of our clients. People just like you who want something a little bit special for their home. They were tired of the selections the typical furniture store offers.

Our clients are demanding in life and desire unique looks for their home. They don't settle for automated phones, boring designs and uncaring salespeople. They want to shop where the furniture and accessories are outstanding and creative, they want to shop where they could talk to the owners anytime, and they want to shop where they feel appreciated.

They chose to shop with us;

'The Contemporary Couch'

These are their words:

Sarasota, Florida

"This is the third home we have designed with Pia. I always say after each delivery;
this is my favorite...but...This one is magical. The electric recliners are so smooth they seem to open on their own. The Italian craftsmanship is superior! Pia gets better with age. Every time I visit my sisters home in NJ, I always visit The Contemporary Couch. There's always something stunning. Far superior to Florida stores. Personal services and great prices!"

Long Beach, New York
"My experience with The Contemporary Couch has been wonderful.  They designed furniture for both my homes. The first being a Manhattan apartment and more recently a beach residence. After a thorough measurement of my space and a lengthy discussion of my beach wants and needs, combined with Pia's recommendations and expertise, the transition of  my home began. We worked with The Contemporary Couch to select bedroom, living room, dining room, and sitting area furniture that was custom fit to my space.Rich textured fabrics, distressed wood, lacquer, and metals were expertly selected and coordinated to capture the essence of the beach shoreline.  The patience, professionalism, knowledge, and personalized service that I received transformed my space into a "coastal beach oasis". Thanks to The Contemporary Couch I'm thrilled with my new home."

"One day late last fall, we left our Central PA home to look for furniture that could not be found in our area. We went to the Paramus area, visiting many stores where most salesmen tried to sell us something.  We stopped at The Contemporary Couch last, by design, where we were welcomed warmly by Pia and Larry. They didn’t try to sell us anything, they asked us what we were looking for, and then after a series of questions, answers and bantering back and forth, the results are now in our Great Room.   

Pia knew what we were looking for even when we couldn’t visualize it.  She is an extraordinary decorator with a perceptive knack of finding your styles and likings. She helped with paint colors and carpet suggestions. We now have one of those rooms where people walk in and say “WOW”. Everything is stunningly beautiful! Our dining room will be next!"

"Dear Pia and Larry.

As a child, the one thing I always cherished was coming home after school and before walking into my house you could Custom living room and rug smell mom and grandmas cooking. Everything was perfect when I would here the garage door open because that meant my dad was home and yes dinner was only moments away. But what I learned as I got older was that it was not how much food there was or what we we're eating. It was that importance of the family gathering at the dining room table after a long day. Together we sat, no words needed to be spoken but the one thing that was a defining factor was that we were all together. I got so much joy last night seeing Diane and Shanna sitting at the pub table in the kitchen eating cake and laughing and you can see the joy and pleasure they were experiencing. The entire mood and temperature of the apartment had changed. Tonight, for the first time in more than a year we sat together at our new dining table and enjoyed dinner together. No folding trays, a real table and chairs with family sitting together that could only bring back those warm memories of years before Hurricane Sandy and going back to my childhood. Last night, I sat down on our beautiful new couch at around 11pm  and I woke up at 6am this morning realizing that it was the first time I was comfortable in our new place.

So today I looked around and I am seeing how happy my family is. I'm seeing the change in moods and I'm seeing the change from being in a new place to being home. Yes this has been a long tough journey but life is always a journey.  My mom would always say everything happens for a reason. So with all that has happened, My mom passing away, hurricane Sandy, and selling our home we were blessed to meet and become friends with the both of you. Your kindness, generosity and support have been incredible. Pia and Larry you put my family back on track by transformIng our home into something so magnificent and unbelievable I just wish everyone could see this master piece you have created.

We were blessed to have found the both of you and there is no doubt that people who come from Canarsie are always great people. For everything you have done for our family we wish the both of you and your family the very best. As my mom would have said you are both menschen and may God continue to bless the both of you and your families.
All of our love."

Hi Pia,Custom dining

My wife and I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did in designing our dining room set for us.  It is beautiful, unique and has dramatically enhanced our apartment.  We've had the dining room set for a week now, and we are still constantly staring at it.  We're very glad that we found you and hope to do business again with you in the future.   We will happily refer business your way.  Best of luck to you.

"Dear Pia

As you are aware, we have a two bedroom apartment in Manhattan that was destroyed by a broken steam pipe. All Curvy couch and custom rug
furniture was ruined and had to be replaced. Going through the process of identifying and acquiring all new furniture was a daunting thought. The last time it took us many months; and it was certainly not without issue. Then we happened to stop by your store, and we were surprised to see that there were so many floor samples that we more than liked. We came back a few weeks later, and spent a day with you designing all our new furniture. The ability of identifying furniture for a Bedroom, Office, Living Room and Dining Room in one visit was beyond our wildest dreams! The furniture was delivered last week, and it looks beautiful. Your professionalism in helping us in the decision making process, as well as your on-site help in the installation is truly appreciated.

Thank you for all your help, and we look forward to coming back to The Contemporary Couch for all our future furniture needs."

We want everyone to know that this is no ordinary furniture store. Pia and Larry just don't treat you like family they make you part of their family. We recently moved from our home to a Coop in Brooklyn. We had no furniture and we had no idea where to go. My wife found these wonderful people on line and we went to their showroom. We were greeted like family and Pia and Larry just took it to another level. They took everything  we had in our heads and designed a living room, dining room and kitchen table set that will be the envy of all. Pia is an artist, she knows not just what you want but what you need. We were in the store for hours until Pia got everything  on paper and made sure it was perfect. But the story doesn't stop there, we showed Pia and Larry pictures of our new place. Boxes piled to the ceiling not an inch of space and that's when Pia and Larry turned to us and said "are you kidding us. You guys are sitting on folding chairs?" We explained that we took no furniture with us but Pia and Larry said your not sitting on folding chairs for two months until your furniture is ready. These two wonderful people had a brand new sectional couch delivered to our home to use until the furniture we were ordering is ready. But this just gets better, when Pia emailed the measurements to us we were really unsure if the dining room table would be the right size. Pia told us to throw out our measurements and she would be coming to our home to look everything  over herself. Yes, and that's what she did.

We were blessed to have connected with Pia and Larry they are just incredible , caring and loving individuals that are truly special and talented. They even sent flowers to our home for our daughter's High School Prom. As we said, just incredible  beautiful people and we consider them family. The show room at The Contemporary Couch Design Studio is magnificent. If you truly want an experience  that will take it to the next level you must must visit Pia and Larry. You will not be disappointed and you will soon come to the same conclusion s that we have, they are the very best. Pia and Larry we love you guys. We hope we continue to stay in touch for many years to come.

"Dear Pia –
Wanted to thank you a few times over for helping us with our home decorating projects. You first came to Reclining sectionalour aid a few years ago when you “rescued” us from another designer who not only cheated us, but also disappointed us to the point we thought we were doomed to cookie cutter department store furniture!

Not only did you embellish the design, but the furniture, rug, and valences you created for us made our rooms unique and inviting.

We came back to you recently to update a previously done room. Again your insight and honesty were much appreciated. You helped us identify our own style and keep things simple, even when we were willing to spend more! As time goes on, I’m sure we will visit you many times over to slowly refresh every room. Even if it’s not to buy furniture, we plan to visit at least to enjoy engaging conversation and indulge in the creativity of your showroom!

Thanks to you and Larry for helping us be confident in our choices and helping our visions become reality!"

"Hi Pia and Larry,

      We had our house rebuilt 3 years ago with intentions of buying new furniture to go with it! We had very specific criteria but vague styling ideas as to what we wanted, so we weren't so eager to get this chore accomplished. Luckily we found your website and immediately upon meeting you, felt confident you can get this job done for us!  Well, it seemed like a blink of an eye, we had all our furniture, colors and patterns finalized. In the next blink of an eye, our rooms are transformed into a beautiful, comfortable place to enjoy for many years to come.

     All I can say is that it was a pleasure to have our expectations be exceeded.  What else can we ask for!!!!
     Thank you so much."

"Hi Pia,

It's a daunting task shopping custom-made furniture overseas. With not much more than floor plan, measurements, and just our brief interaction, you were able to understand our needs and translate that into a lovely masterpiece of a home from thousands of miles away.

You proved yourself quite the designer.

Your pieces have all our friends here in awe - actually I think lots of them pay more attention to the pieces than our conversations. Lol!!

They can't get over the window treatments and shape of the seats. The seats are so unique and it's amazing how comfortable they are. The coordination with the mirror and other items - breathtaking.

Thanks for helping us create a visual and functional haven."

Facebppk J.V. Staten Island  May 2015 posted on The Contemporary Couch Design Studio featuring artistic designs by Pia's timeline:

"After 3 months of furniture shopping all over the Tristate area we finally found the right pieces at contemporary couch. It's not because we looked everywhere and finally made a decision it's because we fell into the right place. As soon as we walked into this store we knew that we loved their quality and style. On top of that they offered a service that we didn't come accross anywhere else. Pia and Larry came to our home and provided us with interior decorating advice! What furniture store does that? Once the pieces came in we were extremely happy and satisfied with the look and the quality. They were always available to answer any questions we had and their delivery service is outstanding. Prompt and efficient. Hands down one of the best decisions and purchases we've ever made. Im pleasantly surprised that this type of service and quality still exists, and it's at Contemporary Couch!!"


"We first met Pia 15 years ago at Living Rooms Plus where she designed our living room, family room, and dining room. We followed her to Carlstadt and now to Paramus.Beautiful leather sectional. The unique channeled back gives support to your neck and shoulders. The electric motion recliners relax you, and the dual cup holders hold your favorite beverage. All covered in a luxurious but durable 2 tone leather.

I've loved all of her work. I was reluctant to re-do my family room but my husband convinced me after 15 years it was time. After all, anyone that can design custom dining chairs with Swarovski crystals is dear to my heart.

This time, Pia outdid herself. From the sumptuous motion leather sectional, to the custom area rug to the custom cabinetry, our family room is now a sight to behold. Soft neutral colors allows the beauty  of design stand out. Some people think beiges and creams are boring...not when Pia gets finished. Pia was in my home for the entire 6 hour installation.

For 15 years I have never bought anything for my home that wasn't from Pia and Larry, and I am proud of our friendship and I loves everything in my home!"

"Our family moved to Manhattan, into a 3 bedroom/2,000 sq. ft. apartment from 8,000 sq. ft. of living space, for our first taste of urban living. We researched furniture stores around the city, Northern NJ and CT. We stopped searching when we found Pia’s ‘The Contemporary Couch.’ Pia guided us through the We highly recommend ‘The Contemporary Couch’ because of their unique blend of services, which include interior design and high quality custom furniture, as well as many well-known brands."design and selection of furniture for our entire apartment and, more than that, helped us reset our expectations from suburban living to the compromises needed to live in 25% of the space we used to have. We never felt pressured into any decisions, and in fact Pia traveled three times to our apartment, first to measure, take pictures and create design patterns (some of the walls are uniquely curved) and then twice more when the furniture was delivered. She took her time to explain our options and did not hesitate to suggest some furniture pieces from her competitors when she felt they would be our best option. The custom furniture, rugs, mirrors and decorative pieces look great and have enhanced our place. We highly recommend ‘The Contemporary Couch’ because of their unique blend of services, which include interior design and high quality custom furniture, as well as many well-known brands."

We are so thrilled with our beautiful purchases!! Every piece of furniture, window treatments, rug designs along with your color suggestions is amazing and I am so happy I listened to you! We just had our Holiday party and everyone asked "where do you shop?" People can't believe that you came out from NJ to see and design and then came back for delivery! The experience of working with you and Larry is the most professional, friendly and painless customer service and support I have ever experienced! This wasn't the first time we have worked together but you continue to amaze me with your talent. This house is so different from our other home and you always put it all together and make it our home! Thank you for your all you do and especially for the wonderful friendship we have developed! We can't thank you enough! Happy Holidays and Best in the New Year!"

Good morning Pia, Larry & Alex,
    "Where shall we begin as we attempt to describe one of the best happenings in our life? It all started last Custom for the game!August after we had closed on our "new" condo. Having always liked a modern look, we started combing the highway furniture stores for that look, but to no avail. Although we're not computer savvy, a friend suggested that we check on-line for "modern furniture." Sure enough what should appear but a place called 'The Contemporary Couch', just the words we wanted to hear. So we took a field trip to Carlstadt. 
    Every piece of furniture we now have in our living/dining area is outstanding and unique, not to mention the special area rugs and Bold, contemporary stylingwindow treatments. Our condo is a work in progress, a "job" that we hope never ends because Pia and Larry have become such an integral part of our life.
    Pia and Larry, thank you for helping us transform our living space into a New York-like apartment. (We love New York!) Thank you for your immediate attention and responses to our concerns and questions. Thank you for your generosity in accessorizing our place.  Thank you for making us feel at home in your world. You are a very remarkable and special couple.  We love you!"

Good Morning. Hope all is well. Sorry, I did not getBedroom furniture  to see you yesterday. But saw the furniture last night when I came home." Woooooo.......w". That was the first thing I said when I saw it. Truly that was a marvelous job done. Both me and my wife could not believe how nice the things came out. We just could not believe that we own such nice pieces of bedroom furniture. We have been to so many furniture stores but never felt so happy and satisfied with our purchase as we did yesterday. Both you and Larry did a terrific job right from the measurements to design to color selection and finally to install. We just don't have any words to explain our feelings. Boys will be coming home next weekend and we are sure that they are going to love it too. We want to THANK YOU for putting life in our bedrooms

"My husband found 'The Contemporary Couch' by searching on line and we took a trip out to New Jersey on a whim (we live on Long Island). One of the best 4 power incliners and adjustable headrestsdecisions we ever made!

We were hit very hard by hurricane sandy. Our family room on the ground floor was completely destroyed. Rebuilding was a nightmare as well as we were constantly misled and disappointed by contractors and repairman. When the construction in the room was finished and it was time to furnish it we were daunted by the task. But along came Pia and Larry from Contemporary Couch and we were put completely at ease. Pia has magnificent taste and incredible talent. She was able to catch on quickly to our tastes and personalities and took the time to make sure we were on exactly the same page. She was straight up with us from the beginning both in terms of cost and completion dates. There were no "hidden fees," no "unexpected delays" and no "unforeseen circumstances" as we had experienced regularly with other sales people.

Pia and Larry were present when the furniture was delivered and ran the show. I was blown away by the finished product as it was even more beautiful than I expected (and my expectations were high!). The quality and comfort of the couches, the beauty of the rug and mirror and the functionality of every piece (the tables, vases, etc.) was beyond impressive. I find myself walking into the room regularly just to smile and look forward to many years of family enjoyment and friend entertaining.

I must say that I have never dealt with such straight-up people. When they shook my hand on day one I had a good feeling. Our last meeting ended with hugs. I will use these people again and again and I recommend them whole heartedly. I could not be more pleased."

"Pia, I cannot believe you pulled it off! I'm shocked it came out beautiful. I was prepared to be disappointed as I was in previous Custom swirled rug, coffee and end tables, sofa and swivel chairexperiences. I'm totally surprised that my home came out great. I've used designers for many homes over the years and hated everything they did. I was not using a designer again! When I saw your work in a neighbor's home and came into your showroom, I weakened. I still thought you would sell me something you liked but I didn't. Well, you finally proved me wrong! I love all of it. You are in a separate category of designers in my book. ."

Dear Pia and Larry,

    Just last night we were sitting in our living room We are using a five piece curved sectional commenting on how warm and cozy it feels. We truly appreciate your phenomenal ideas and flawless execution. Your attention to detail and fabulous advice has brought our living room and dining room to life. The designs are not only beautiful to look at, but they are functional and comfortable, as well. Our Uncle commented that he felt like a king sitting in the plush chairs at the head of our dining room table! We had a great experience with both of you and continue to recommend you to all of our family and friends.

The island's stools, the kitchen dining set, the cocktail table and the cornices are magnificent and are the right supporting cast to the show stoppers: the couch and the absolutely gorgeous rug!

To Pia and Larry, our sincere thank you for an excellent and well done job. We look forward to working together again on our living and dining rooms.

Merry Christmas and the best to you in the New Year."

Dear Pia and Larry, Circle, curves, coordination

We first approached you when we were trying to figure out how to furnish our home. We were flummoxed. You came to our home, looked at the spaces and colors, and created designs for us to view.
We were very pleased with what you presented, as the geometry and colors of our house were not easily amenable to proper furnishing.

We are very impressed and glad with the results and excited with future projects. We thank you for all the time and effort you have put forth. We have replaced most of our ikea furniture with your beautiful designs, and we highly recommend your work to anyone looking for elegant, artistic and contemporary furniture.

About a hundred years ago, when I was a small boy in grade school, my class supply list said, “crayons.” So, like mostCustom design parents, my mother came home from the local drug store with the 39 cent pack of 8 Crayola colors. And, upon meeting the needs of the list, I was a happy camper - until I got to school the next day. There I was with all the other kids and everyone was smiling and showing off their new boxes of 8 crayons and waiting for art class to start, when a little girl classmate of mine pulled out of her book bag a box of 64 Crayola colors. There were colors that I had never heard of before or even knew existed. What the heck is “mauve” and “oh my god, this crayon even has glitter??!!” And to top it all off, like James Bond, the crayon box had a hidden sharpener so that her crayons were always sharp and pointed and could stay within the lines. WOW! Well, we all knew who was going to get the “A” in art class that year!

Walking into “The Contemporary Couch” on Route 4 in Paramus is like finding that box of 64 color Crayolas with the hidden sharpener! First, your eyes are greeted with a display of colors and fabrics and designs that are unlike any other showroom my wife and I visited.

And, unlike some of those other showrooms where sales personnel swoop down on you like prey, Larry and Pia give you a moment to catch your breath, to take it all in, and then they will introduce not only themselves, but also their furniture. And when Larry and Pia introduce their furniture, you will understand that if you are willing to follow the yellow brick road that you are in for a creative and unique experience. You will soon realize that you are not just purchasing “cookie-cutter” furniture guaranteed to be delivered in three days like your neighbors may have, but that you are getting ready to paint the canvas of your house in fabrics and designs and personality that are as exciting and inviting as you, the homeowner.

In addition to the sense of form and function and pizzazz that our new furniture gives me, I was just as impressed with one of the other services that Larry and Pia offer. Pia will personally come to your home during the delivery and like a maestro conducting an orchestra make sure that every piece fits –not just “good enough” but, perfectly!

So, if you are ready to color outside the lines; if you are ready to let your senses be teased and caressed; if you are ready to spend the extra dollar to buy the 64 box of imagination and design; if you are ready to turn your house into a home that reflects a personal expression of who you are, then by all means introduce yourself to Larry and Pia at “The Contemporary Couch” in Paramus! By the way, if you just can’t find the exact color you want in the box of 64, Pia will create one for you.

Do we really live in this place? You have made our dreams come true, and it gets better and better each time we see it and live in it. We’ll try to stop in soon for chat and coffee.

Dear Pia & Larry,Custom dining table, chairs, sculpture

   Thank you for your kind good wishes.

   We are thrilled to know you and do business with you. Your expertise, talent and eye for detail is to perfection. You have exquisite taste! Therefore, our visits and driving trips from Bethlehem are always enjoyable. ( even if we come close to sleeping over in the store.)
    We wish you and your family a holiday season filled with good health, happiness, peace and joy today and throughout the coming year.

Our heartfelt congratulations on your 1st anniversary at the Paramus location! Mazel-tov!!!!!!!!!! see you soon! You are the best!!!!!!!!

Warmest regards, Aliette & Marc


"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 Custom living room by Piaslate 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!"-

Dear Pia, Pretty , swirly couch
"My husband and I started with two very different furniture designs on our heads for our new home. Neither of us could properly articulate our wishes. Several designers later, we met Pia.......jackpot!

She listened and listened and converted our thoughts into furniture options.....voila! We could have real furniture discussions. Pia continued to listen as we refined our furniture thoughts. No more straight jacket on our furniture. She developed unique furniture with a unified vision for our tastes.
Almost one year later, this furniture, along with the other accessories like window treatment, media buffet, etc......fits our home and is integral to our family relaxation concept....and guests' WOWS!

Thank you Pia for taking the time to understand our needs and converting them into elegant unique furniture. Also a big thank you to Alex and the rest of the crew behind the scenes who were able to get our furniture and other items to us in time."

"Thank you so much for making our furniture buying experience such a joy!! This was the first time that we've worked with a designer to create a complete look for an entire room and we didn't know what to expect. You made the process pleasurable and easy and we are DELIGHTED with the outcome!!...I'm not sure if you remember, but one of the first things we said to you was "We don't own a modern house and we're not looking for contemporary furniture. We just want a nice couch...can you work with us?" You assured us that you could, and all I can say is that our expectations were EXCEEDED!!"

Custom contemporary console Pia and Larry,
     "My family and I are so pleased with the transformation that you have brought to our home. 
     Transformation and home because it truly brought change to how we commune in our dwelling.  Change in how and where we share our time spent indoors.  The functionality lends itself to easy communal existence.  This spot is where we all love to be and not in the den watching TV.  We now spend more time in these rooms than we previously did.  There is no fear, of "wearing the out" as we had, of previous furniture.  We do not want to just watch it, we use it.
      The stylishness has modernized our living space.  The quality has brought a sense of comfort to the space.  The colours that you have married to existing pieces have transformed these rooms to places of warm tranquility with underlying strengths felt because of the sturdiness of the furniture. 
     Compliments on our "new home" are offered up by all visiting.  But the best is when we enjoy it ourselves.
     The unique console does exactly what we wanted it to do.  It adds style to our home but also is personal in nature because of the initials.  Yet, that personal touch remains obscure, despite, the boldness of the piece.  No one notices it unless we choose to point it our.  Needless to say, that is not done, unless the person is close to us.  I had doubts anyone would miss the initials and that over time it might become garish and branding. Pia, you are truly amazing!
Finally, your follow up attention to details and service in rectifying the minor items that needed to be addresses was beyond reproach.  In today's world, where service paid for is invariably sub par, you have set a standard that others could do well to follow. 
      From a very pleased we found you family. Thank you Pia and Larry!"

Contemporary living "We were always looking for someone who specializes in Contemporary Furniture. We liked what we saw on the site but like most people we were skeptical as to whether we will get what we actually see on the site or whether the pictures really belong to real people. On visiting your Showroom both of us were very pleased and it was like seeing our pictures in our mind for real. Being a total novice in the Interior Designing Area we were pleased the way Pia Designed our Furniture/Color Combination/Rugs but the most exciting part was to see the Design on the paper actually turn into Reality when we got Delivery of the Furniture.   Design on paper does no justice to the actual Furniture.  Our friends and family who have visited our home said WOW – this is really cool."

For those of you who remember the hedonistic days of Studio 54, and the unique times and personalities of that era, here is a quote from the man Time magazine calls.......
   "The godfather of the U.S. paparazzi culture" and his equally famous wife

"Walking into Pia's amazing showroom, I was overwhelmed and felt that Ron and I would never come to terms over which direction to take (I'm traditionContemporary looks for Client Home #52 Montvilleal, he's contemporary). All I really knew was that I wanted high impact and drama to best showcase Ron's photography. The result has been absolutely magical. As in "pop", the colors are vibrant, and the furnishings are amazing.
In our opinion, the most beautiful form in nature is the sphere, and Pia gave us exactly what we were looking for--curves in our sofa and rug designs. Her designs are amazing works of art. Pia rocks! She's half marriage counselor, but 100% Plus great designer!!!!!"

They quickly became my friends and acted as role models as I went through school. I soon realized that they were going to be an integral part of my life for a long time. Eight years later, here I am with a new car, condo, job, and on my way to my first graduate degree. These decisions were made thanks to the great advice that Larry and Pia were always able to give me. They have always held high expectations of me and would never accept anything but the best, which helped me to be a better employee, musician, student, and all-around person. As highly-qualified, honest, and down-to-earth professionals, Larry and Pia are very easy to work with and talk to. Even though I may not be rich with a huge house, they were clearly able to accommodate my needs based on my personality, budget and living space. Larry is an extraordinary businessman with a knack for, well, just about anything! Pia is an extremely talented artist and businesswoman who will immediately assess the type of person you are and design a room/home perfect for you, without fail! Both Larry and Pia will make you feel welcome by accepting you into their warm, friendly showroom, which I have come to call my second home. Well, actually, half the showroom has become my REAL home! Thanks for everything!"

Praise for The Contemporary Couch"A few years ago, I had custom nightstands made in Italy. After waiting a full year for them, we decided to then order a new dresser and armoire. Our luck, the company went out of business. My search began and always ended with no luck. Someone was kind enough to give me Pia's name. We met at the showroom, and I was impressed with what she could offer. A week later, she made the long trip to my home. We just clicked. Together, we designed two custom, beautiful pieces so quickly that we even had time for coffee. A few months later, two kind and well qualified men delivered and put together our new furniture. You can see them proudly on Pia's website. We are so pleased that we wanted to share this ."
