The Daina Tray Set from Made Goods features a faux shagreen material and is available in various colors and sizes. It showcases a beautiful brass metal detail.
Trays are a great way to complete the design of a room, keep things nice and tidy, or add a splash of color. It’s form and function in one and Made Goods does a great job of having tons of options available from which to choose.
The Bomma Dew Drops Pendant is lit by an internal LED light source that creates an iridescent glow. The crystal drops adhere to either vegan or natural leather belt. You can choose from many color options including tan, blue, black, silver and many others. There is a multitude of installation possibilities to make each project unique.
Dew drops and the entire Bomma collection is the most innovative lighting I have seen in many years. Joe and Glen discovered this gem of a line at the lighting show in Milan. Stop by the Arlington Heights Showroom to see it for yourself. It is truly a magnificent piece.
The Michel Ferrand Lounge Oval Dining Table is shown in Arlington Heights in Sable on oak. The light finish highlights the beauty and graining of the wood. With their custom sizing options and vast finish selection, Michel Ferrand products are able to fit any space and style.
My favorite feature of these tables is that you are able to have self-storing, center butterfly leaves. Now you can have an extension table without having to worry about where to store the leaves!
The LEE Industries 7071-01SW Swivel Chair is a versatile, smaller chair with many great options (stationary, swivel and swivel glider). Upholstered, slipcovered or skirted, this chair has a smaller footprint and could work in small or larger space without forfeiting comfort and/or style.
This spectacular chair fits all heights comfortably, a client favorite! There are many sofa sizes available and can also be customized by width. Lee offers many fabric choices, including a wide variety of performance fabrics. Great quality, comfortable cushions, quick shipping times and a look that never goes out of style is always why it’s a favorite of mine to show.

What is your past work experience/education? Tell us a little bit about how you ended up in this field and what experiences brought you to the world of design. Interior Design has always been a passion of mine, but coming from a small town, I was never exposed to the world of design like I was after moving to Phoenix. After a couple of career changes, I started my journey in design January of 2014 by attending Scottsdale Community College. I have worked in a design showroom, with an interior designer, and with a home builder. I found that working with designers in a trade showroom is the best of both worlds. I get to help design beautiful homes without having the stress of being a designer. I enjoy what I do and can’t see myself doing anything else!

This week’s feature: Dan Rak of Dan Rak Design from Chicago, IL!
“The architecture of this house in Lincoln Park was pretty traditional, but the client wanted to furnish it in a more contemporary way. As we started sourcing we went to Verellen and immediately fell in love with their Oakley chair and Theo chaise. We knew the soft, contemporary lines of these pieces would create a beautiful contrast with the square lines of the traditional architecture.”
