FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Landry Designs offers full-service, floor-to-ceiling residential, commercial, and multifamily interior decorating. We specialize in providing furnishings such as furniture, area rugs, wall art, lighting, bedding, flooring, custom window treatments, and accessories. One of our professional designers will come to your home or office to discuss your project, which allows us to take into account your architecture, current lighting, and any existing furnishings you’d like to keep. Each new client receives an initial complimentary consultation appointment prior to starting any designs. When all of your items have arrived at our studio we return with our team and complete the installation of your items. All you need to do is show up for the BIG REVEAL at the end! Our goal is to provide an easy, fun, collaborative decorating experience for busy people, with exceptional results.
Landry Designs has been serving clients since 1997. During that time, our team has been honored to win numerous awards including 35 international design awards, and our work has been published in national magazines and books 28 times. We have also been voted Living Magazine’s “Best Interior Designer” for many years running, and we’re thankful to all of those who have voted for us.
Instead of going from store to store for all of the different products for your spaces, Landry Designs is one-stop shopping and our design services are included in our pricing. Your designer can help you pull the entire project together, saving you time and money. We have thousands of options from vendors all over the world at our disposal. We provide exciting options in furniture, area rugs, accessories, lighting, window treatments, wall coverings, upholstery, bedding, outdoor furnishings, and business interiors.
Landry Designs offers a complimentary consultation when starting a project and our pricing for furnishings includes our design services for selections from our multitude of vendors. We do offer additional consulting work at an hourly rate for projects other than furnishings, which may include: space planning, paint selection, hanging your own wall art, and assisting with materials selections for remodeling projects.
We cover a lot of information on this “Getting to Know You” appointment, including design ideas, priorities, and budget ranges, along with viewing “Before and Afters” in our portfolio to help get a sense of your style. Your designer will ask you questions to get to know you, and will also discuss your priorities. Next up is a quick tour of your spaces to give your designer a sense of the architecture, the layout, any existing pieces you may want to work into your design, as well as any future decorating plans. Looking through our portfolio together allows you to see examples of our work, and your designer can see what styles and colors are your favorites. At the end of the appointment, we’ll discuss a Master Plan, listing your priority projects first and then discussing your first project in depth. We’ll also discuss budget ranges for your first project, collect a retainer to get started, and set our next appointment to review your designs. Now the fun begins!
Home decorating can involve many types of changes to the interior or exterior of the house. In our experience, we find that any adults using the priority spaces have their own views, either financially or aesthetically, on how the spaces should be altered. Having all interested parties participate from the beginning can save time and potential frustration when making important financial and design decisions. We understand how valuable time is, and if all adults who will be using the space can be there for at least your initial project, we find that all parties are comfortable with the process and satisfied with the end result. In addition, future projects tend to go more smoothly and efficiently.
At your initial consultation, your designer will help you decide on a plan for your project, including a list of priorities and a desired budget range. Then your designer will work with you to select the best products for your project from our huge selection of window treatments, furniture, wall art, area rugs, bedding, flooring, and accessories and will help you select everything based on your own lighting and with furnishings, you’d like to keep. Your design professional will narrow down selections of each priority based on your style and budget, and present these customized designs to you during your selections appointment. You will be able to choose your favorites, creating unique spaces made just for you. We will then place your orders immediately to ensure the best availability of your new designs.
When you work with Landry Designs, our initial design consultation is complimentary. This is when we help you determine your desired style, project priorities, and discuss average budget ranges for projects similar to yours, with many quality levels available. Because we work with a wide variety of products, suppliers, and price ranges, we can help you determine a budget range that is comfortable for you based on your priorities. Once we’ve established your budget, you can relax and know that all options we present will fit within your chosen budget for your project.
We have a simple design philosophy—we believe that your space should express your tastes and support your lifestyle, and the whole process should be as easy and enjoyable as possible. From choosing paint colors or accessories to remodeling or redecorating your entire home or business, there is no project too large or too small.
Are you tired of running all over town or searching online for all of the components that make up a space, and then still not being in love with the results? Or do you have a busy lifestyle and have no interest (or skill set) in implementing interior designs on your own?
Our professional designers provide expert guidance on colors, materials, textures, finishes, furniture, floor plans, and traffic paths to arrive at the perfect solution for you and your environment. We pride ourselves on offering one-stop shopping with our award-winning design team who listens and works with you to create extraordinary designs. When Landry Designs arrives, so does the excitement of creating a space that’s uniquely your own. Each of our design professionals has the experience, training, and creativity to make us one of the most sought-after design firms in Texas. From our initial design consultation to the final “Big Reveal” we help you through the entire process of redecorating your home. Our products are among the highest quality and best value in the decorating industry. You can take pride and have confidence in your purchases from Landry Designs because your satisfaction with our products and workmanship is guaranteed. We also have many customers who like to work on their projects in stages, according to their budget, and we’re happy to offer that service as well.
We’re here to provide exceptional design services by trained professionals who know how to turn your dreams into reality. We’re known for creating “designs that set you apart”. That’s the Landry Design difference.
Landry Designs offers a huge array of products. For items we are unable to provide—such as constructional elements for remodeling projects such as sinks, bathtubs, countertops, etc.—we are happy to go shopping with you at an hourly consulting rate.
This is one of the most common questions we are asked. Through our 20+ years in the business, we’ve developed a furniture selection system that we believe works very well for our customers. We begin our process by listening to you to create a design plan that suits your space, your needs, your design budget, and your lifestyle. We also look at any existing furniture with which you feel comfortable and then can compare measurements, including seat depth and seat height, with the new furniture pieces we select.
We understand that you might feel apprehensive about spending money on something you are unable to sit on or see in person and, in some cases, customers feel more comfortable finding furniture on their own. However, many customers tell us that it can be very difficult to find the best pieces for their room without compromising style. It can be hard for customers to even narrow down what style and silhouette would look best. And then there’s the color selection—you may find a style you like, but it’s not in the color you had in mind. Or the size doesn’t look the same once you get it home. If you’ve ever purchased a sofa that’s even 2” too long, you know the pain and frustration of that result. When customizing furniture for your space, many times we create a floor plan to choose the best sizes and shapes, and then together we choose the fabric and cushion style, design, and finish, as well as great pillows to pull it all together.
Because our designers are professionally trained in furniture selection, helping you choose the perfect pieces is their specialty. Your furniture is such an important element of your design that we highly recommend doing it right the first time. Many of our customers tell us that, after the ease and convenience of our process, they will never shop for furniture again in the traditional way. In addition, we proudly stand behind our decorating projects and products.
Landry Designs has developed in-depth systems to efficiently handle every detail of your project. In the design industry, we work alongside freight companies and supplier manufacturers that do their best to complete your order as quickly and error-free as possible. Unfortunately, shipments occasionally come in with damages or may be delayed due to unforeseen backorders. Your designer and team do their best to catch those issues before your delivery, but these occurrences may lengthen the project completion time. Once your order is started, your designer will give you an estimated time for completion, but please note that situations beyond our control may lengthen the delivery date. Your designer will keep you informed along the way. Please know that every person on our team strives to handle all your project details in the most efficient manner possible. We want to take care of everything and make sure the process is easy and fun for you all the way to your Big Reveal!
Our designers meet with busy working professionals regularly, so we understand how valuable your time is. We simply ask that all participating adults be present during the initial complimentary consultation and during the following design selection appointment. After that initial project is complete, we’ve found that designers and their clients can work with more comfortable and accommodating schedules.
Our designers are dedicated to our customers, and love working with you to create amazing spaces! With that in mind, most of our full-time designers make appointments during normal business, daylight hours, to ensure the best results by incorporating the proper natural lighting into the design.
Landry Designs specializes in providing furnishings for interior design projects such as furniture, area rugs, wall art, lighting, bedding, flooring, custom window treatments, and accessories. For any constructional elements, such as sinks, faucets, granite, paint, etc., we will happily work alongside a contractor of your choice for those selections at an hourly rate. If you do not already have a contractor that you’d like to use, we are happy to refer you to contractors in your area.
Yes, as long as it is agreeable to all parties involved, our designers are happy to work with your contractor of choice.
Landry Designs does offer most of the furnishings for your interior and exterior decorating needs. However, we do not sell or provide the constructional aspects for remodeling projects. For those elements, your designer can refer you to high-quality contractors, or you are welcome to use any contractor with whom you feel comfortable. We understand that remodeling can be overwhelming in some cases, so if you would like for your designer to work alongside the contractor to help with choosing the construction elements of the remodel (such as sinks, faucets, granite, paint, etc.), we do offer those consulting services at an hourly rate.
Please note that during remodeling projects, unforeseen issues may arise which could raise costs, or lengthen the project completion time. Please review these possibilities with your contractor prior to beginning your project. As a precaution, it is recommended to leave room in your budget and time in your deadline for unexpected issues. Please also note that referred contractors are not part of Landry Designs and your designer cannot be responsible for third-party actions. We refer contractors to our customers as a courtesy, when requested.
Landry Designs is located in North Texas. For larger projects, we serve customers across the Continental U.S.
If you have an urgent timeframe for your project, please inform your designer during your initial appointment, and we will do our best to accommodate you. We can request a rush with many vendors but, unfortunately, not all items can be expedited. Our designers and design assistants work alongside freight companies and supplier manufacturers that do their best to complete your orders without error and in a timely fashion and, regrettably, we have no control over freight damages or items becoming back-ordered. Your designer and design assistants do their best to get your items to you within the timeframe originally stated at purchase, and if there are unforeseen delays, to keep you updated. Just like you, we can hardly wait for your Big Reveal Day!
Each of our design professionals has the experience, training, and creativity to make us one of the area’s most prestigious design firms. Our design process helps to ensure that each customer will love their project because they help design it! Your designer will narrow down the best design solutions for you based on your style and budget, and then you choose your favorites. This way, when the project is complete, the space truly reflects your personality and lifestyle. We enjoy customizing each project based on your particular style. Given our vast range of suppliers and products, we order items specifically for each customer, and cannot carry all of our products in stock. On the rare occasion that a product is not satisfactory, defective items will be replaced at no cost to you, or exchanges may occur with possible restocking fees.
