What are clients saying about Natalie?

“I have now completely furnished my entire home with products purchased over the last six months, and if I had to do it all over again I would do it the same way. A Giant Big Thanks goes out to my Design Consultant Natalie Lenahan Dean. I honestly do not think I could have done it without her. Having to deal with someone like me is difficult enough, but her patience, understanding and definitely most important, her in-depth knowledge of styles and colors was a win for me. I am still amazed at how I can ask her where a specific item might be seen, and she can take you right to it. Thanks so much. ”
~ Craig W., Winston-Salem, NC

“Natalie was extremely professional and helpful. The ordering process online was fantastic.” ~ Cheryl J., Apex, NC

“Natalie Lenahan Dean should be commended, she went above and beyond. She drove over to the showroom to check out the console I was interested in. She sent me pictures of it. She also found out for me that this particular one was on sale, so I not only got the piece I wanted but it was on sale. She was an absolute pleasure!!!! Please let her know her service excellence will ensure my future business. In addition I will tell friends!!! She also followed up with a beautiful note to ensure my satisfaction and good health and memories with my new console. She is an angel!!!!” ~ Christine M., Staten Island, NY
