Since most days in the life of an interior designer involve hours spent hunting for that perfect piece, we thought you would like to see some of the unique pieces we come across. Here is the first of many.
This fantastic looking chaise is from Sam Moore.
The classical wing style is made modern with clean lines, hip silver nailhead trim, and trendy blue fabrics. And our favorite-ly fabulous part? It is a one-arm chaise. That means you are fully supported while resting or reading, but also that when nap time is over, you can get out and up more easily. Good-bye to the not-so-good-looking butt-scoot exit. :)
At the request of a client, I discovered Sioux Falls' newest home furnishing shop, the Zing Idea Factory at 301 S Minnesota Avenue. The old Firestone warehouse has been converted into an interior shop, offering fresh new products, with tendencies towards urban modernism and whimsical fancy.
The accessories and wall decor inspired me the most, and the friendly staff made it a wonderful visit.
Did we purchase? You bet. A dining table turned desk, a convertible sofa bed, and a bulldog statue, of course.
Looking forward to going back and doing a little shopping for myself! Thank you Zing Idea Factory, for providing a different avenue of inspiration.
The big "boards" of interior design. It requires an interior design degree and nearly two years of experience. For Michele, that was in 2005. Now almost 8 years later she has agreed to bite the bullet and submit herself to the exam. For her, it's less about the credentials and more about the continuing education. Clients will only benefit from the up-to-date and relevant knowledge that will be crammed into her head over the next six months. Good luck!!
