We owe the professionals at Sister Bay Trading Company a great deal of thanks for insightful design plans which ultimately led to creating the warmth we are now experiencing in our new Door County home. Kudos to the entire design team for giving us meaningful direction when we were at an impasse regarding design, furniture selection and color coordination.
So many times a designer will come in and try to put their own stamp on the project in contrast to the theme or style desired by the developer or owner. This isn’t the case with Sister Bay Trading Company. They ar every flexible and do good work in any direction. It really is a strength of theirs. We will continue to work with them in the future.
We asked three different design firms to submit multiple color schemes. Sister Bay Trading Company was chosen for two reasons. They were really creative and offered good design. And, they were able to provide us commercial furniture with a residential feel. We have so many return guests here. We need to blend the old with the new so our guests felt they were coming back to what was familiar. Sister Bay Trading Company was able to do that, especially with the window treatments and accessories.
The staff is very dependable and creative. They were excellent with the follow-through and getting back to me promptly. They were at our home when we couldn’t be there physically while electrical and other contractors were there working. That’s a big load off of your mind when you are building. Faxes only go so far. You need someone there to touch and feel the product. They were very helpful. I love the choices of fabrics for bedcovers and pillows!
We own a number of our own furniture stores in the South but chose to purchase some of our own furniture, fabrics and accessories through Sister Bay Trading Company for our home here. Shopping locally for these items was both convenient and pleasurable! In our stores, we take great pride in providing excellent customer service to our clients. From selection to deliver and setup, Sister Bay Trading Company far exceeded our expectations!
They always called back and always followed up. They provided excellent customer service wherever we might be. There are a lot of decorators that believe it is their home and they are allowing you to live in it. It’s not that way with Sister Bay Trading. One of the real strengths of Sister Bay Trading is that they can listen to what we wanted and bring it to reality.
I’ve worked with decorators in the Chicago suburbs. Sister Bay Trading has the selection and the quality. The samples were right at my fingertips. They had the resources to choose from. We’ve dreamed about this house for many, many years and our dreams came true. The way we furnished it is just the way I wanted it. It’s just perfect. You can tell how satisfied we are.
We’ve called on the design professionals at Sister Bay Trading to assist us in decorating two homes in Door County and our home in Chicago, as well. Marilyn makes an effort to get to know her customers. We were looking for style and comfort and she did everything possible to help us achieve our goals. We’ve always been very happy with the work she’s done for us and easily recommend her to our friends and neighbors.
There’s a benefit to working with a smaller company like Sister Bay Trading Company. When you call, you can talk to someone you know. It’s someone that has been to your home and knows exactly what you are talking about. At Sister Bay Trading Company they just want to get it done right.
I was obviously enthusiastic about our condo, but less enthusiastic about dealing with the furniture. The very first time we met with Marilyn and her staff at our condo. After listening to our ideas and hearing we had upgraded the carpeting, Marilyn left to pick out carpet samples. When we got there a half hour later, she had all of her recommendations laid out. I was impressed. We were accomplishing something!
