Designer Blvd. is conveniently located in South Gilbert and is full of unique furniture and home decor. We are always on mark with art and unique lighting and other amazing finds. Designer Blvd. is a result of passion, design and love of people. Our owner has been in the textile and fashion industry since she was 5. Her family owned a large 20,000 sf. fabric store where she started working at age 7 stocking thread and sewing clothing, furniture and draperies for her dolls and Barbie dolls.
By age 16, Carol was designing clothing and costumes. At age 22, she had her own clothing line selling to Nordstroms and other fine stores in the USA. Her clothing line was nationwide with 12 sales reps. She opened 3 retail stores and loved to design and decorate them. Her store was known for it’s unique clothing and how amazing it was displayed, decorated and designed. She began being asked to do displays and interiors for other stores and customers’ homes. Carol started doing it on the side, but was so busy with her growing clothing line, she could not pursue her heart’s passion.
After 10 years, she sold her clothing line to pursue her love of interior design and has never looked back. Her home was so overflowing with unique pieces she would pick up for clients that she had to start renting industrial space to hold all of her inventory. In a very short time, she began selling some of her items to other home decor stores. The word spread and people began shopping her warehouse without air conditioning.
Carol spent countless hours driving and shopping for special pieces and the perfect furniture for each of her clients. She was so torn with charging for her time so to save her clients’ money, she opened the Designer Blvd. Showroom. Her clients would no longer be charged for her shopping hours and others could shop and enjoy her great finds as well and — it has air conditioning!
Our inventory is continually updated with the best that Carol has found on her buying expeditions and never with cookie-cutter catalog pieces. She realizes she could be best friends with Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper on HGTV. She recognizes they love and buy from the same vendors and share the love of Chic Easy living. But truthfully, Carol really enjoys many design styles, and it shows in our store.
Thanks to Carol, our inventory is handpicked. You can rest assured that a room that has been outfitted or designed by Designer Blvd. Studio will not look like your neighbor’s. We are known for unique and different.
