“At Designstorms, our sister company, we lacked a place for clients to touch and feel the furnishings that we enjoyed using in projects. The idea of a showroom was born and over time, was crafted into a designer showroom that is not only accessible to designers and decorators but also available to the public.”
The western suburbs was in need of more access to quality, high-end custom furniture. The showroom features select samples of furniture, lighting, rugs, and art that can be custom-ordered, as well as one-of-a-kind accents that can be purchased to go. “Some of the lines we carry only sell direct to the trade; you won’t find them in retail stores,” says Storm. “We’re the only showroom in the Midwest to carry this collection of vendors.”
Her collection also features a Storm Inspired line of private-label furniture and accessories, such as tables, hide rugs, handcrafted wall hangings, pillows, and decorative items. These are limited-edition and will be featured only in the showroom.
