This morning I had the opportunity to visit Luxe Home Interiors (formerly Norwalk – The Furniture Idea) for the first in a series of “Seminars for Designers.” Now, I have already been through the new Luxe and can tell you that the showroom is beautiful — well laid out, with a good mix of styles and price points. The staff is as professional and attentive as always. What made today’s event interesting was that we had the opportunity to hear from a couple of vendor reps about the new product lines now available at Luxe.
Specifically, Fine Furniture from Huntington House, Gat Creek, Joe Ruggiero for Miles Talbot, Gotico and Carolina Home from Century. These lines have a tremendous amount of flexibility built into them so that you can go from traditional to contemporary to lodge to country and back all with the same manufacturer, just choosing from the the myriad options. They have also put together special programs for Luxe that have considerably streamlined the ordering process.
Of course, Luxe still carries some of you favorites: Drexel Heritage, Saloom, Bermex, Dinec, Stanley, Bernhardt, Artistica, Charleston Forge, Lorts & Hooker. And they have a good eco line, ecollections, that utilizes sustainably harvested woods, natural-fiber fabrics, water-based finishes and formaldehyde-free glues.
In my opinion, Luxe Home Interiors is now a much better store than Norwalk. The selection is broader, the ability to customize is tremendous, and the fabrics…oh the fabrics, are sensational. You can furnish your home here, be it Urban Loft or Lodge.
OH! And they’re having a great Grand Opening sale until March 31. If you’ve been thinking about new furniture, now is a great time to buy.
