I'd like to inform your readers that they can afford a professional designer. Most designers buy furniture at cost and then add a small mark-up (20-30%) to their clients. Most of the furniture stores sell at a much greater profit. Occasionally, a design fee is charged for additional services. After determining a client's life style, a professional designer selects beautifully blended, well-scaled, timeless furniture to fit within the budget of the client. For that charge, homeowners are provided a service that guarantees them a well-coordinated residence.
