Posted on | April 1, 2014 | No Comments

In the interior design industry, support and teamwork are essential to the creative process – and to ensuring wonderful results. The Southern Pines interior design firm, Village Design Group, and its vibrant Design Center, take this idea to a whole new level. The group provides resources To The Trade, along with in-house commercial and residential design services for clients located regionally and nationwide. With a wealth of product options from quality vendors for every area of the home, Village Design Group assists both designers and homeowners in meeting their design goals. North Carolina Design spoke with owner Vicki Stone about Village Design Group, and what makes it unique.

“We really are a multi-purpose, diversified group, but we work seamlessly as a team,” Vicki affirms. “Over the 32 years we’ve been in business, we’ve built up a lot of accounts and brought together an incredible collection of design resources, which we use to create a one-stop design shop that serves homeowners, our own designers and those in The Trade.”

The firm is located in a 12,000 square foot showroom, where the public is free to browse an immense selection of furniture, fabrics, accessories and wallpaper. Designers are on hand to provide selection guidance for those who need it. Village Design shares the showroom space with Kitchen and Bath Galleries and Meadow Creek Tile – a partnership that has been invaluable to all involved. “We can offer cabinetry, appliances, countertops and tile – everything necessary for a remodel or renovation, in one place,” Vicki notes.

Those in the design industry also benefit greatly from Village Design Group’s wide selection. “Our To The Trade service really provides something invaluable to independent designers who don’t have the resources to maintain lines or open accounts, and are limited when it comes to the case goods, fabric and upholstery lines they can offer their clients,” Vicki explains.

“When designers register with us – which they can do from anywhere in the country – they have access to all of our resources. This gives them a great deal of flexibility and many options that they would not otherwise have had. We have a dedicated account person that helps them place orders, check orders, and get things delivered. We really are here to help and support them in every way, and those who have registered have found that it’s a very worthwhile service.”

While Village Design Group is located in Southern Pines, the firm is providing fashion forward design resources to interior designers not only across the Carolinas but throughout the country. Vicki confirmed that current projects have the company working with interior designers as far north as Connecticut and as far south as Florida. By providing the most notable names in fabrics, trims, and home furnishings, they are able to accommodate the needs of their design clientele.

In the end, Village Design Group is all about offering everyone great options, good value and excellent service. “People tend to believe that designers and products are expensive, and that it’s wiser to do things themselves,” Vicky explains. “What they don’t understand is that good design is a talent and a valuable skill, and hiring a designer saves time and money and prevents mistakes. Our ultimate goal is to help people end up with the room or the house of their dreams, and we have the resources to do that successfully.”
