If we aren’t doing your furniture and interior décor shopping, then you really should be asking yourself “Why not?”
I know that for many the services of an interior designer seem a luxury they simply cannot afford… especially now when everything seems to be rising in cost. But when we started Cada Design one of our primary goals was to make luxury, high-end living just that little bit more accessible for everyone. You may be surprised to learn that when we are buying pieces for your home, business, any indoor or outdoor space our services actually come at the expense of the store and NOT our clients. As a design company we are able to build relationships with a wide variety of stores and suppliers, and our list of partners is constantly growing. Through these relationships we are able to earn a commission when we bring business to the stores. And it is this commission that we take as a design fee instead of charging it as an extra on our clients’ account.
You may spend hours going from one furniture store to the next trying to find the right piece for your home, only then to return to all of them again trying to find a chair, table or whatever the case may be to pair it with. The price you see on the showroom floor is the price you will end up paying and it would have cost you plenty of precious weekend time. Your alternative is to contact us and we will immediately be able to assess the kind of piece we should be shopping for – its style, its colour, its scale and because we spend a large part of any given week in the showrooms we are likely to know exactly where we should head to from the start to find that piece. At this point we can present you with a couple of options based on cost and style and you may be surprised to find that you can afford a slightly better quality item because of a trade discount that we can pass onto you, our client. Even if no trade discount has been offered we can guarantee that you still won’t be paying a cent more than the showroom price – the store will be paying us on your behalf – and you will have saved time and received the benefit of our expertise, ensuring that you have a perfectly well chosen piece.
And maybe you’ve already spotted that perfect décor item in a shop window and have been longing to purchase it. Well, we’re asking you to please speak to us first. The more we are able to put through our account at any store the bigger our commissions will be, which means bigger discounts for our clients – and this makes us very happy.
And there is no restriction on where we can exercise our buying power… from antique to contemporary shops, from the chain stores to the designer boutiques and from the artisan houses to the industrial warehouses. And when we can’t find it in any of the stores we can have it custom-made to perfectly suit the environment, design scheme and client’s budget. As an example, a few months ago we were able to put the Persian and luxury contemporary rugs, antique chandelier and beautiful mirrors with elaborately carved frames that our client never imagined she could afford into her home. And for us, that’s the greatest reward as an interior designer – giving our clients something they wouldn’t have been able to put together if it wasn’t for our assistance.
You don’t have to wait for the end of range sales… we can get you those sales or, at the very least, our expertise any time you need it. And we’re happy to help whether it’s just a piece or two that you’re looking for or an entire house, office, restaurant or store that needs redoing. It’s what we are here for.
