The human story behind this business describes some of the attributes to their success. The seller is a professional Interior Designer who moved back home to Savannah after a long & successful career in Atlanta. She realized that Savannah didn’t have a good source for beautiful designer drapery, and certainly no source for designer ready mades. So she opened this business a few years ago to meet that need. Their reputation grew as a premier window treatment & home décor store and customers began referring them to their friends and business associates. They have expanded into a retail location large enough to beautifully showcase their products.
