“Decorating Den Interiors has such a phenomenal group of designers,” said Barbara Calcagne, director of design sales for Southern Roots, the design division for Craftmaster Furniture. “Our goal is to strengthen and develop this partnership. The mission of both companies are very similar and we are very pleased to accept this award.”

Supplier partnerships key to fulfilling design inspirations
“While celebrating our company’s 50th year in business, we are especially proud of how we have grown our LIVV Home Collection™. It provides our clients with a wide range of customizable options at various price points,” said Haseley. “Great design is about both creativity in concept and customization in furnishings. Before we make a sale, our design professionals must present the client with a personalized design concept. That involves listening, creativity, and access to excellent 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 Decorating Den Interiors in the design community.”
