A by Design client said one of the nicest things to me the other day. He had just finished ordering furniture for his third house. As he and the designer finished up, I went over to say thank you so much. (I try to do this whenever I have the opportunity). He said, “Thank you so much for being here. I know how hard it is to have a small business and I appreciate you very much.” He then said even more nice things about the designer and about how beautiful our store was. So cool.
But please understand: I know how lucky we are. This business puts us in the position to meet great people and do really cool things with them. What is more, because of the personal nature of the design process, it works best when we build a relationship with our clients. Personal relationships are the most important and rewarding things we can do in life. And we get to do it as our job!
We are the lucky ones. So I want to thank you again. Our friends and loyal clients make it possible for us to stay in business. Kevin and I and all of us at by Design thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
