About By Design Modern
"I’m really trying to help people solve their decorating and interior design needs."
People come to us for a variety of reasons. When they come into the store or to our website they are serious about finding furniture that will fit properly into their space – ultimately, they’re trying to find something functional, of high quality and aesthetically pleasing for a particular need in their home.
My job and the job of my staff is to try and help these people find that special item to solve that need.
We ask questions. We want to know what the customer is trying to accomplish with a piece of furniture, what space is available, what the décor and lighting is like in the space. That's how we approach every interaction we have with our clients.
