‘Home Design Center’ in Shreveport makes Dream Homes Come TruePosted by: Tom Pace - February 06, 2008
One-Stop Shopping Concept features Quality-Look for Today’s Lifestyle
“Home Make-Overs” are all the rage today. Whether it’s a fix-up project for your current home, or a full-design for your home under construction- The Home Design Center in Shreveport, has great news for you: no more long drives to Dallas to find “just-the-right-look” in furniture, flooring, cabinets, windows and treatments, bathtubs, countertops, appliances, rugs, accessories & other décor. They have it all.
And if you need something extra-special, the Home Design Center merchants can probably order it for you. Think of them as your personal shoppers. Most importantly, for the customers, it’s quality time: one-on-one consulting, with the professionals from eight “premiere” local businesses, all under one roof.
50,000 square feet of showroom space, without walls, or dividers. Shreveport developer Rand Faulbaum believes that “open-air-concept” of The Home Design Center promotes efficiency, allowing homeowners to better visualize how their custom-look will actually feel. Faulbaum’s concept has now become a reality, thanks to his partners, tenants, and The Sealy Company.
The first anniversary for The Home Design Center will be August 17th, 2008. Seems like just yesterday, when Faulbaum was meeting with interested business owners, pitching this truly ‘ultra-chic’ idea for homeowners, contractors, builders, re-modelers, and developers.
The Home Design Center model is so simple, it’s amazing no one thought of it before now. “Each area is individually owned,” said Sid Menard, president and co-owner of United Tile Company, Inc. of Shreveport. “This concept allows area merchants that are experts in their fields, to showcase the best and newest products in their fields.” United Tile is one of the eight local tenants in the center.
It’s true what you’ve always heard, “…time is money.” What with the soaring cost of gasoline, the demands of parenting, both partners working, and a hectic social schedule…The Home Design Center becomes a “great stress reducer.” With this concept, consumers get the one thing money can’t buy: Time.
Glenn Adams with The Kitchen Design Group specializes in Cabinets (Custom and Pre-Fabricated), Appliances, and Custom woodwork. Name brands dot their showroom, and customers can compose a “wish-list” of the newest, state of the art appliances and kitchen styles. The options are endless, from French Country to Contemporary; you dream it and they can build it.
Since 1948, United Tile has been serving Shreveport-Bossier & the Ark-La-Tex with top-quality Flooring, Countertops, and Natural Stone. United Tile’s owner, Sid Menard, is one of the original partners in the Home Design Center. He decided to re-locate to this highly-visible location, because, Menard believes, in the “if you build it, they will come,” philosophy.
Scooter Murray owns Murray’s Interiors. Scooter says “The Home Design Center is a perfect fit”, so he too, moved his extensive line of Lampe’ Berger products to this super-center. You can choose from lamps and scented-oils by Lampe’ Berger, to the quality Trapp Candles, which are in great demand today.
The Home Design Center is definitely worth a visit, especially if you’re into saving time. Open Monday-Friday 9-6, Saturdays 10-3, and closed on Sundays.
