Complimentary Design Services Offer Darvin Furniture Customers Access To Custom Home Consultation

Orland Park, IL, Aug. 31, 2017 – Darvin Furniture understands that finding the perfect furnishings for any room in your home can be an overwhelming process that can add stress and oftentimes delay many decisions. In an effort to help customers feel confident they are choosing the right size, color or style furniture for their home, complimentary professional designer consultation is offered to any customer shopping at Darvin.

With more than 200,000 sq.ft. of display space in its showroom, Darvin Furniture, Chicagoland's largest furniture and mattress store, offers an enormous selection of furniture styles, upholstery options and accessories. While the diverse selection provides something for everyone’s furniture tastes, it can be intimidating to navigate so many options.

According to Juliana Barr, one of Darvin’s on-site design consultants, helping patrons to find the perfect piece of furniture is a process that begins with identifying several key variables that exist with every customer. "It is important to get a feel for each customer’s personal tastes, the room or rooms they are trying to furnish, and to understand the space they have to fill."

Barr, who has more than 16 years’ experience in residential design, says she enjoys meeting and working with customers on the showroom floor as well as visiting their homes. Darvin offers complimentary consultations to anyone visiting the showroom, 15400 La Grange Road, Orland Park, IL, and charges $100 for an in-home consultation, which can be applied toward their final furniture purchase.

"Furniture is a major purchase and by taking advantage of Darvin’s complimentary professional designers, you can ensure you make the right decision the first time and avoid mistakes that can cost you unnecessary money to fix,"" says Barr.

Darvin design consultants will help in selecting furniture to suit personal lifestyles, through coordinating fabrics, colors, finishes and accessories. They put personal tastes, and budgets first, while making the shopping experience for the perfect room easy and fun.

Barr says it is normal for shoppers to be somewhat surprised by the large selection at Darvin. "A lot of times customers come to me simply because they are overwhelmed with so many beautiful items that they cannot make up their mind which one may be the best for their home,"" she says. "The first thing we do is figure out what they like and if they are not sure, then I try to help narrow down their options."

    Darvin Furniture Designers | Philosophy
  • Achieve BALANCE by using furniture and accessories to offset the impact of large of dominating elements in a room
  • Create a FOCAL POINT to capture the attention of guests
  • Put the FAMILY FIRST by reflecting a true lifestyle
  • With use of PHOTOS that reflect your tastes in furnishings, designers can help spark ideas
  • RESEARCH how the room will be used

While personal style is always a consideration, Barr says one of the biggest challenges customers face is understanding the spatial relationship between the size of a room and the furnishings. "My job is to help customers understand the actual space they are working with so they are not buying anything that is too big for their home. In my experience, people tend to buy things that are too big – never too small."

A picture is worth a 1,000 words and Barr suggests that customers visiting Darvin should bring photos of their home and the rooms they are intending to furnish. This will help describe personal tastes and spark ideas. In addition, she says that having a room’s dimensions is also critical to ensuring the right choices are made.
