Right now, I am focusing most of my efforts toward interior design.  If you like what you see and need to furnish a room and/or need a room designed for you, please stop by Walter E. Smithe in Merrillville and ask for "David".  I will also be happy to come out to your home on behalf of Walter E. Smithe for a home consultation to help ensure that we get the right furniture (color, style, scale, cohesion, etc.) for your living space.  The fee is only $100.00 which will go toward anything purchased at Walter E. Smithe.  My home visit will entail measuring the entire space, taking pictures, sketching out the room, getting a further sense of your design preferences, and noting  any adjoining rooms and other furniture pieces that may be staying in the room.  I will then schedule a time to meet at the Merrillville showroom where I will present our ideas and furniture choices.  Between the home consultation and the presentation, I will be hard at work integrating what I learned at the home as I use my product knowledge and creativity to come up with a functional floor plan.  I have many tools in my arsenal to convey our vision such as Photoshop, Power Point, Omni Room Planner (2D rendering), and Google SketchUp (3D rendering).  The more ways I can give you a visual sense of what the space will look like, the better you will feel knowing there will be no surprises along the way.
