Anyone can select tile and purchase furniture. Why choose to have Dragonfly Designs do these things for you? Here are 7 reasons:
WE SAVE YOU MONEY:
Where to spend: We can show you what items in a room you need to spend on to maximize function & look - and which you don't. A thoughtful combination of different value levels allows for comfort where you need it, bling where you want it, and interesting spaces with proper focal points.
Preventing Material Mistakes: We have extensive understanding of how materials function - which clean well and which don't, which fade in the sun, which are appropriate for kids and dogs, which will patina over time, which will give the builder a headache, (which to ask for anyway), and which to stay away from completely! From fabrics to finishes, we know what to recommend for your individual lifestyle.
Preventing Scale Mistakes: Scale is one of the most common mistakes by homeowners. Proper scaling of furniture and architectural elements ensure both optimal function (such as enough seating & storage), and pleasing negative space that allows a room to breathe. This can be tricky, because two sofas on the same dimensions can carry a very different visual mass, depending on their styling. We have perfected these intangibles so you don't have to.
WE SAVE YOU TIME (AND HEADACHES):
During Design: Most homeowners can point out things that they like. But combining them properly takes time and visualization. We evaluate each space horizontally on plan, as well as vertically via elevation to ensure proper scale, flow, negative space, contrast, focus and lighting. Decisions can be frustrating when trying to visualize 3-dimensionally. We combine items based on a sound technical reasoning and present them to you in visual formats you can wrap your brain around.
Sourcing: We know the best places and tradespeople to source anything you want. We eliminate extensive research, navigate overwhelm, and have long-standing relationships with our trusted and often exclusive vendors. There is no guesswork - we get service and product guarantees.
During Procurement: Purchasing a whole house (or even a whole room) of furnishings can require hundreds of line items that need to be carefully checked for accuracy. Each will be tracked, and problems will be mitigated with shipping delays. Upon receipt, each order is checked against the original order for accuracy and completion. In the event of damage or error, we immediately set up freight claims and handle expedited replacements. With custom detail orders calling for multiple fabrics, welt trims, nail head size and color, pleat style, grain direction (the list is endless), purchasing can feel like a full time job. Ordering is messy and often a headache, but we have this down to an art.
WE ARE EXPERTS:
Whether it is understanding the construction process, communicating with team members, selecting appropriate products, managing your timeline to prevent delays, or maximizing comfort and function with enduring style, we have you covered. Building a space correctly takes a lot of technical knowledge that we've gleaned over years of dust, drawings and meetings with tradespeople. We are committed to getting it right for you and more importantly, we know how.
