Real Interior Design Stories | Linda in Charleston, SC


We wanted something fresh and new
looking and we live on the marsh here in Charleston so we really like natural
looking things, but we did go through a lot of furniture stores and when we went
into La-Z-Boy I told my husband I mean I stopped at the door and
I said, “This is gonna be the place we’re going to find what we want.” We had our furniture for probably over
17 years. And it was all dark cherry wood coffee tables and very dark
sofa maroon and navy blue and so I said, “I’m ready for something lighter and
brighter.” So after going through all the stores, we didn’t know
where to go because it’s been so long since we’ve bought furniture. So I said
okay let’s go into La-Z-Boy and we walked in there and I said, “Oh my gosh!” I
loved it as soon as I walked in the door I loved it. And I knew Dean wanted
another leather chair and I wanted a lady’s chair and a nice comfortable couch.
After looking and sitting and looking and sitting and Becc came over
and Billy came over, it didn’t take long and it was all coming together. Becc: Hey Linda we’re all ready for you! Linda: Ok. I’m not going to look until I get all the way down. Oh my gosh! It looks beautiful! It’s more than I thought! Thank you so much! Becc: So Billy grabbed me and said, “I have a couple I
want you to meet” and I came up and met you guys and that was the
beginning of a wonderful experience. We wandered around the
store on our own for a while Billy gave us that freedom and so we did wander
around the store which was good and kind of felt things out – what we wanted
and what we didn’t and then the experience went from there.
“Well we’ll think about it” and then Billy said well how about if Becc comes out,
take some pictures, uses her lasers to see the size of your room. And I loved
having you out here that day. That just kind of sealed the deal for me.
Having you in the house and saying Linda you know we’re gonna transform this
and you’re going to love it. It’s going to be just the vision that
you want. The marsh colors that you want in Charleston and I thought I’m
ready and I was ready. We saw the pictures and I love that part.
It makes you feel really special it’s like you’re the only one in
the store. You’re going to do the whole thing just for me in the design center and
put it up on the TV and doing all that. Yeah well that’s how
we want to make you feel because you are the only ones that were focused on at
that moment. So we really felt like that. Good. And it
didn’t take us too long to make that decision and we loved
everything in the store. The whole experience I told you just from
start to finish and really it’s true you were there at the
beginning and you’re still here while we’re putting
everything together and I’m just so appreciative of everything. But
you and Billy are such a wonderful team he handled certain things but then
you just kind of take the reins and run with it. I just love that because it
kind of gave Dean and I a chance to sit back and you were just like this shining
star. Just I’m going to take care of everything you don’t need to
worry about anything this is going to be a comfortable experience and it really was.
You know if you just take your time and work with a professional designer
like yourself this is what you end up with. And I’m very blessed and I’m
very thankful. Well thank you and we appreciate you letting us come out. Thank you
so much. You’re going to make me cry.
