About Your Company
We are an online interior design service with a mission to make interior design accessible and affordable for everyone while enabling designers to build thriving businesses. This platform offers personal attention through the design process (at a flat fee rate) and also provides design resources and products to its clients through curated purchases (eCommerce) of furniture, fabric, accessories etc. The total experience is provided in a way that informs, inspires, and assists people through the process of transforming their home or business environment to become a unique and personalized expression of themselves and add to their enjoyment of that interior space. The idea is to have a gracious/glamourous and luxurious image and provide the experience as such even though the price for the services is set much lower to accommodate the price/value sensitive consumer that previously felt interior design is too expensive.
