How to Work With an Interior Designer: The InterviewWhat to Expect & What to Know, 40 Key Questions to Ask PLUS a Bonus List!December 19, 2018
O ne of my favorite interior design resources and go-to brands for fabrics, wallpapers, trims, and custom furniture is Kravet. They have an amazing selection of these design necessities in every style, color, and price range. Their quality is top notch, customer service fantastic, and the ease of using their website is the best in the business. Kravet fabrics are always on trend, but I also love them for their great selection of the basics too. They carry one of the best faux leather selections I’ve ever seen, which I’ve been selling a ton of lately. I’m also a big fan of Kravet’s custom upholstery because of it’s fantastic quality without over the top price points. Plus, their ability to make high-end custom items without the long lead times makes me (and therefore my clients) very happy customers! I believe that waiting more than 2 months for a custom sofa these days is completely unnecessary.
Kravet is also a leader in technology. They were first in creating an easy to use website for designers to access pricing, stock, place, and track orders, which I can do for clients 24-7. I also love their cool recently implemented sample scanners in their showrooms, which saves so much time and headaches from writing mistakes. This means I don’t need to pull out my reading glasses to read and jot down 10 tiny numbers from the back of a fabric tag, which is awesome! (Yes, I’m showing my age here but I just started needing the reading glasses so I’m not THAT old! Lol!) Through the years, I’ve watched Kravet evolve, expand, and relocate their showroom. And each time they make themselves better. I’ve gotten to know the super helpful showroom sales people, most of whom have been working there since before I can remember. It’s so nice to see their smiling, familiar faces each time I enter their beautiful showroom. You know a company is doing something right when employees just never leave!
If you’re wondering if you can purchase Kravet products without a designer, the answer is yes, just not at designer prices and the selection will be more limited. To make it easier or you, I’ve included some shopping options throughout my site to facilitate buying Kravet products, should you find you love them as much as I do. You’ll find them mostly in my “Get The Look” pages in many of my posts. If you need guidance on selecting the appropriate fabrics, trims, wallpaper, or furniture items to coordinate seamlessly with your rooms, I definitely recommend working with an experienced interior designer to avoid costly mistakes.
