Sneak Preview | Habersham Featured Home Story

Kitchen by The Blind Side for The Cliffs Model Home In upcoming weeks we’ll be posting a feature story on a fabulous model home that Diane Laskoski,  Founder, President and Senior Designer, The Blind Side Home Furnishings, Verona, PA,  designed  for Fairview Builders.  Diane and her firm handled  the interior design for this lovely home and they used Habersham throughout.

This stunning, sophisticated 4300-square-foot mountain style home is located at The Cliffs.  Nestled  between Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC, the eight Cliffs Communities provide home and business owners with a lifestyle focused on wellness and tranquility.

We recently hosted an open house with Diane , the builder, our licensing partner, Biltmore Estate and representatives from Viking, provider of the kitchen appliances.  We had a wonderful turnout of interested and curious Cliffs lot owners, home owners and others throughout the area.  The feedback we received was extremely positive and we look forward to sharing the story of the home and Diane’s excellent design work.

Interior Design Billings On The Rise

Pages from ASID-IDBI-First-Quarter-Report-2014A recent article on editoratlarge.com recapped figures and findings from the American Society of Interior Designers’ (ASID) Interior Design Billings Index (IDBI) and the news is good!   The story reported on findings from the May edition of IDBI indicating that the recent slowing of the U.S. economy has not impaired the design sector, which came in at the highest it’s been since late 2010.

The story quoted Randy Fiser, CEO of ASID, saying “This is exciting news for designers across the country, as well as their clients. I believe this strong showing reflects a rise in the public’s awareness that professionally sourced, research-based interior design can improve our everyday lives. Changes in the design of hospitals, schools, homes, workplaces and other spaces in which we spend extended time can make us healthier, safer and happier. Research from several institutions, including ASID, has proven this to be true”

Editoratlarge.com reported that the May ASID IDBI of 65.9 is up sharply from 56 in April  – reflecting growing revenues. The uptick is evident in residential and public construction spending and paralleled April’s Census release on construction spending.  What’s more, all regions of the country showed growth and the near-term outlook is for steady gains.

Here at Habersham we are seeing similar results as the number of projects we work on with our valued interior designer partners continues to grow.  We are always seeking ways to improve the designer-friendly features of our line – from our custom capabilities to our finish options.  And we’re always looking for feedback on how we can help our designer clients grow their business with us. If you ever have thoughts and suggestions, let us hear from you.  And,  for more information on this report, as well as important happenings in the design industry, visit www.editoratlarge.com or www.asid.org
