Design Blog Spotlight: Toms-Price

We always enjoy reading the blogs of our interior designer and dealer clients and I wanted to share one with you.  This month, Peggy DuMont  Toms-Price Peggy du Mont, designer, Toms-Price, Wheaton, IL, talks about  how to add a wow factor to a room with Habersham’s American Treasures pieces.  Here’s a clip from the full blog post:

Q: How can I make my room truly beautiful and unique?

A: One method that designers understand is the addition of a statement piece to add wow factor.

It’s true that one jaw-dropping piece of furniture in a room gives it a solar-like focus around which all the other pieces can revolve. “How can I find that perfect piece,” you ask? My go-to company has often been Habersham which takes the level of furniture making to an art. It’s an upscale investment to be sure but if you are just choosing one piece to make a statement it’s possible for even the budget-conscious.

Even though Habersham is high-end, it mixes well with other furniture – even a roomful of flea market finds! It will make everything look better. American Treasures is a new collection for Habersham. It moves away from the very large carved and heavily distressed pieces in some of their other groups. I love this more streamlined transitional look and find it blends well with many styles – even more traditional ones. It also has many pieces scaled down for smaller homes.

The Dressing Room : The ‘It’ Space of Luxury Living

Habersham Custom Dressing Room Cabinetry In the recent September 2016 issue of Traditional Home on newsstands now , the article “What’s In Your Closet “ written by Candace Ord Manroe and produced by Krissa Rossbund, outlines how today’s closet/dressing room has become the new “it” space of luxury living.

The article says, “Remember when the word closet could be lofted as a put-down to describe a pint-size room (as in, “That bedroom’s tiny as a closet”)?  In some circles, that insult now would be mystifying – the closet has become the new “it” space of luxury living.  That means bye-bye-small fry, and welcome, literally, to the next big thing.”

Here at Habersham, we’re continuing to see growing demand for dressing room cabinetry for spaces of all sizes.

Completely customized to meet the client’s space, style and wardrobe needs, designs include wide, deep drawers, plenty of shelving for shoes and accessories, hanging bars, mirrors, space for luggage, safes, hampers and more.

We also give clients the opportunity to choose from a vast palette of hand-styled finishes in rich colors, tones and textures to create  private, luxurious spaces.  To see some of our latest designs, be sure to explore our website’s cabinetry section.

Houzz Study | Majority of Home Renovation Professionals Regain Pre-Recession Revenues, Profits

We’re reading more and more good news about the home  industry!  Most recently, the Q2 2015 Houzz Renovation Barometer,which tracks confidence in the home renovation market among industry professionals, points to growing industry confidence being driven by widespread quarterly gains in inquiries, number and size of new projects .   Here’s a quick summary from a press release issued last week by Houzz, a leading platform for home remodeling and design:

Habersham Custom Designs

According to the Houzz  Q2 2015  Renovation Barometer, more than two-thirds of home renovation firms reported 2015 year-to-date revenues and profits to be at or above pre-recession levels, with one in five firms or more reporting revenues and profits to be significantly higher.

“A large majority of home renovation firms on Houzz report a return to pre-recession revenues and profits, irrespective of industry segment or firm size,” said Nino Sitchinava, principal economist at Houzz. “While industry confidence remains strong for the remainder of 2015, professionals tell us that the shortage of skilled labor continues to be a key challenge to growth.”

The Q2 2015 Barometer reflects steady optimism in market growth among professionals, with high index scores of 69* or higher in market confidence across all company types, in line with Q1 readings (71 or higher).

The Houzz Renovation Barometer study is conducted quarterly and presents analysis of responses to an online survey sent out to a national U.S. panel of architects, interior designers, general contractors/remodelers, design-build firms, and building/renovation and landscape/outdoor specialties.
