“I was overwhelmed with all the choices in furniture styles and designs, so it was extremely helpful to work with Laura at By Design.  She has been down this road many times so she could advise me on practical issues that I did not think of including comfort tips, color ideas, movement and flow tips, [...]

“We walked in to By Design with a set of plans for our new house and some pictures of furniture we liked. What Laura and Bonita did to furnish our empty space was amazing. Great room, office, bedroom, family room. They created a full plan, we made one or two very minor adjustments, and now [...]

“I just wanted to say how happy I have been with my recent experience working with Laura Beeler on my living room project.  We have purchased furniture from By Design several times over the years and have been very happy with the quality and durability of our purchases.  Before now, however, we hadn’t really used [...]

“After a long unsuccessful day of furniture shopping, my husband and I  happened to see BY DESIGN and stopped to see their furniture selection. At first glance, because I didn’t see a “sea of inventory” I doubted we would find what we were looking for. I am happy to say I was wrong! Laura Beeler [...]

“I’ve had top-notch experience working with BY DESIGN over the years. 1 of my favorite pieces, a hutch, was purchased with Laura Beeler’s assistance in 2002.  I recall her helping us select every part of this piece (handles, finish, foot style). As a result, we have a classic piece of furniture that we continue to [...]

“Once again, Laura delivered top-notch service for us on a second space that we redecorated using her guidance.  From design to delivery, the process was not only exactly as she said it would be, but it was also fun!  She does a wonderful job of knowing the look a client is trying to achieve and [...]

“Laura & I have been acquaintances since the early 90’s.  Over the years, when I stopped in at By Design to browse, I would see her and make occasional purchases from her.  When I decided our family room needed a fresher look, I contacted her.   She “got me” and was on point for the [...]

Laura has been fabulous to work with….just what I needed as I tend to get overwhelmed with all the choice and options.  She came to my house and almost immediately “got” my style and taste.  Next step was to go to the store where she had everything laid out for me.  So easy and she [...]

“We moved to this area from a small town in NE Iowa. When it came time to get furniture for our new home I wasn’t sure where to go.
