Work With a Designer
Designer Referral Program
by Design Professionals, LLC
Design Professionals’ Designer Referral Program is a complimentary service that helps individuals to locate an interior designer who best suit their taste, project scope, and budget. Whether building a new home, planning a renovation, or redecorating a single room, Design Professionals will make the designer selection process easier. Our designers represent a broad range of styles and have been recognized by national trade associations and publications.
Consulting & Buying Program
Design Professionals provides a unique insider Consulting & Buying Program that provides discriminating consumers who are not presently working with a designer the opportunity to purchase a limited number of items at the to-the-trade only prices plus an administrative fee. This service extends a coveted privilege to select from the variety of textiles and furnishings available only at the D&D Building.
The D&D Building is open to design trade professionals only. Admission to the showrooms varies according to each showroom’s individual policy. Design professionals (designers, architects, etc.) may accompany their clients during normal business hours. Clients may be admitted on their own with a current letter of introduction from a qualified design professional.
To make arrangements for your clients to visit the D&D Building without you:
- Write a letter addressed to the D&D Building with your client’s name, address and telephone number on your company letterhead.
- Specify the showroom(s) you wish them to visit, a contact person and the terms and service you would like the showroom(s) to provide, i.e., memo samples, tear sheets, prices, etc.
- Specify the day your clients are to visit the D&D Building. If repeat showroom visits are to be made, indicate those dates in the letter. This letter must be signed by the design professional working with the client.
Not all showrooms will allow visits by unaccompanied clients, so please check with the showroom in advance.
Advise your clients they will be required to show a letter of introduction to every showroom they visit in the building.
