Why Purchase Items through an Interior Designer?

One of the many benefits of hiring an interior designer for your next project is their ability to buy furniture at wholesale prices. While the public doesn’t have access to trade-only wholesalers, interior designers do. This allows us to utilize a trade discount on the purchase of furniture, materials, and other items.

Through the wholesale market, a designer has access to great furniture and materials for any room, including bedrooms, dining areas, and outdoor spaces. Here are some major benefits to purchasing items wholesale through a designer:

Wider Variety of Options

When purchasing furniture wholesale, a designer will have access to a wider selection of options – including size, color, and style – in comparison to those available at retail stores. Many of the vendors we purchase through exclusively sell to the trade. You’ll get access to items you would never be able purchase in store or online.

Items Offered at a Discount

As designers we receive items at a heavy discount from retail which we pass along a large portion to our clients. When working with a designer you’re receiving the best price a consumer can get.


Often, furniture and materials bought at a wholesale store can be delivered directly to the designer, saving time, money, and wear-and-tear on items. Designers handle your whole order from start to finish. You don’t have to worry about locating your item, scheduling delivery, or anything in between, you can just sit back and enjoy your new furniture.
