Uttermost, Hunter Douglas and Taylor King were presented with sales achievement awards for having the highest sales with franchisees. Bernhardt was recognized for outstanding growth over the previous year.
“Our LIVV Home Collection™ covers a wide range of home furnishings products and is the cornerstone of our business model. These five suppliers were particularly outstanding in 2017,” said Haseley.
Supplier partnerships key to fulfilling design inspirations
“Great design is about both creativity in concept and customization in furnishings,” said Haseley. “2017 was another year of increased sales. But before we make a sale, our design professionals must present the client with a personalized design concept. That depends on having great customizable options in our LIVV Home Collection™ of furnishing suppliers.”
“We like to say that we help clients take a room makeover from ‘inspiration to reality.’ Our ability to do this with our no-fee-in-home design consultations depends on our LIVV Home Collection supplier network,” he added. “It’s what differentiates in the design community.”
