INITIAL CALL WITH LIBBY INTERIORS TO ASSESS DESIGN NEEDS
The first step is a phone call to access the scope of work, the timing of the project and what you are looking to do design wise. This discussion gives us an idea of the client’s vision, also let’s us know if we might be good fit to work together. We also go over budget and see if you have a number in mind or where you think you will land costwise. The next step is for our team to send a sample contract and a sample proposal for you to understand our pricing structure and how we bill clients. If you want to work with us, we send a contract, retainer information and get everything signed, a retainer wired and then we are ready to get started!
GETTING STARTED – GETTING TO KNOW YOU AND YOUR PROJECT
At this time, we will meet in person (or via Zoom if you are in another state) to discuss your budget and timeline to complete the space. At this point we also play a little “20 questions” and your answers to these questions give us insight into what you are looking for and more importantly, what you are NOT looking for so we know we are not wasting time headed down a design direction that we know you will not like. We will get your floor plans and if they are not available, we will take complete measurements and photos of design space to assure furniture size and placement are maximized and functional for your family and company. Also, if there are existing furniture items you want to use, we will measure them as well.
CREATING CLIENTS DESIGN PLAN
After the initial consultation meeting and 20 questions, we begin to design floorplans and furniture room layouts, often times we are incorporating existing furniture items, so that all goes into the floor plans. There are multiple floorplan choices, we decide on the favorite final layout and we can talk you through the ideas of why I positioned furniture where, we use our space planning methods to maximize the functionality of the space. Next, we source product for your specific space as discussed in the Initial Consultation. This process is expected to take a couple of weeks to compile all the furniture choices depending on how large the project is. With over 20 years of being in the industry, we have cultivated relationships with some of the top-quality manufacturers with a deep reservoir of selections of upholstery and case goods. We are proud that Libby Interiors represents leading custom furniture lines made in North Carolina and all over the country.
DESIGN PLANS ARE PRESENTED TO CLIENT
A detailed design plan is presented to the client that will often times include CAD drawings, Textiles, Upholstery with the actual fabric samples, case goods, photos, paint and wall covering options, and flooring samples. Often times, several options will be presented and discussed at the time of the meeting to make sure the needs and desires of the client are met. Once the furnishings are selected we create a design board so you can see all items together for each room, this helps you visual how the room will come together, these are not renderings of the room but rather photographs of the chosen items.
PROPOSAL OF ALL SELECTIONS – THE ORDERING PROCESS
Once you have made your furniture, rug, lighting selections – we generate a proposal so you can see the costs of all items room by room. If you agree to all of the costs you sign the proposal and wire the full amount for the proposal. A lot of the times we still need to fill in with additional items, so more sourcing is done at this point, also we can start sourcing some of the smaller items like lamps, accessories, wall décor white the orders for the larger, long lead items have already been placed.
RECEIVING WAREHOUSE – TRACKING – FOLLOW UP
All items get delivered to a receiving warehouse and cannot not be delivered to a residence, the warehouse opens the items when they are delivered, inspects them to ensure there’s no damage and if there is damage the item is refused and a replacement order is placed. Most likely new proposals are now created for the smaller items that have been decided on and after the proposal is funded those orders are placed. Next step is to hurry up and wait while our team tracks all the items that have been ordered so we can decide when it will all arrive and we can set up delivery and installation.
DESIGN IMPLEMENTATION/ INSTALL DAYS/ THE BIG REVEAL!
The big day has finally arrived, and our team is ready for the installation! Depending on the scope of the project, our Libby Interiors design team will install the full project within a one-to-two-day timeframe. The design team strives to complete home or commercial space at one time so the client comes back to a beautifully completed space and can experience the final design scheme fully realized.
