We've recently expanded our skilled production staff with 6 more great employees! We're pulling out all the stops when it comes to home and business interiors, with the best in the biz to execute our innovative design plans! Adding to our already great furniture prep people and seamstresses, we now have 2 upholsterers, drapery seamstresses, 2 carpenters, and a welder! Yes, there is a place for the welder, although it does seem a little random, but here are some visual examples of what we'll be keeping him busy with:
Bob is the master behind the metal. He's creative and talented in his art and always open minded to any crazy sketch up I give him to make come to life!
Carpentry is a big deal in both our furniture division and interior design services. We brought on the best for this and their quality of work shows it! Phil is our lead carpenter. He has his college degree in Architecture and has amassed a great deal of experience in his career path prior to La Dolce Villa. His talent is truly great and he shares my love for salvaged architectural elements..which you can expect to see a lot of from us in 2012. I'm very excited to showcase one of my favorite design styles of rescued relics paired with modern/contemporary elements, or with ornate/traditional styles. Randy is our other skilled carpenter. He also has years of construction experience and works wonders with wood. Wainscoting? Built in Libraries? Done and done. With the skills of Phil and Randy, the more complicated and elaborate re-design projects just got much more stream-lined and efficient. We're happy to do add-ons, build out, or built ins, all for a tiny fraction of anyone else in the biz.
Moving on to the softer side of design...our high end seamstresses quickly whip up the most beautiful window treatments we design. They do impeccable work and are an amazing asset to our staff. If I can draw it, they can sew it! We've dramatically cut the cost on custom window work by having our own seamstresses.
We've made our name in wood furniture, especially case goods. But we're very excited to show you what we can do in soft seating and all forms of upholstery. Having two trusted upholsters on staff, we've got your sofas, chairs, and headboards covered! The guys can tuft, tuck, stitch, and fix anything to perfection.
It's been a fab 2011 bringing my childhood dream of design to fruition. I've been blessed with the opportunity to work with the best clients here in Colorado. The new year is already bringing about some great growth for La Dolce Villa, I can't wait to show you what we have in store! We're doing something different in design.. staffing our own people keeps costs of the project incredibly affordable, while making a look, functionality, and overall style, uniquely different than anything you have seen before, but can't live without!
