Our professional staff is pleased to offer our clients complimentary In-Showroom Design Consultations at our store in Santa Barbara, which includes most aspects of your design, from interior and exterior space planning suggestions to furniture selection, textiles, flooring and window coverings, and upholstery services.

We also offer Virtual and On-Site Interior Design Consultations by appointment in the Santa Barbara area, where our designer will meet privately with you in the convenience of your home for a flat-rate fee. This allows our team to experience the space, the orientation of the home, lighting, your natural traffic flow and even art work or antiques you may want to design around. Then, we will arrange a follow-up meeting at the showroom to present our recommendations.

Whether your aesthetic style is spanish revival, coastal chic or you embrace modernism, our interior design experts will help you create a home that expresses your personal style.
