“I contacted Laura to help me figure out how to refresh this condo I bought 5 years ago. The focus was on the living room where the layout wasn’t working for me and I wanted to change the flooring but wasn’t sure if that would be the answer. Laura was amazing on the first visit [...]

“We had the most fun one afternoon working with Laura at By Design. We went into the store looking for a small couch and chair and she quickly and expertly figured out what we wanted even though we weren’t exactly sure what we wanted. I have never had such an enjoyable experience picking out furniture. [...]

“I am so pleased with my new furniture!  I consulted with two other design companies before By Design and just wasn’t thrilled with anything they picked out.   I met Laura when I stopped in By Design one day.   She was so helpful through the whole process and really grasped the look I was going for.  [...]

“I can’t say enough about working with Laura to help design our new addition. We added a 4 season room that feels like you are in a treehouse. The furniture and fabrics she picked out are perfect and just my style! All of the details then from the rug to the side tables and lamps [...]

“Customer service is second to none at By Design! The owner Bonita was welcoming and our designer Laura was engaging, thoughtful, and ensured our design selections were the right ones for us.

Hi! We’ve had such a wonderful experience with Laura Beeler in choosing furniture for our soon-to-be-remodeled home. “We’re remodeling our home and knew we wanted a designer to help us pull together the furnishings. Laura was a delight to work with—friendly, patient, and low-pressure, yet quickly helping us narrow down choices and create a look [...]


“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, [...]


“As a 1st time customer, I found the store to be a good experience and my sales associate, Laura B, was very helpful!”

“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 [...]

LuAnn S

“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 [...]

“I just wanted to let you know I love my dining room furniture!  Laura was awesome to work with.  She listened to what I  was envisioning and after reviewing some photos I had of the room, she completely knew what would look great and fit my Personal design.  I will definitely be back.  Thank you, [...]


“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 [...]
