Texas a strong state for company

Landry also operates the company’s largest office and studio space, more than 12,000 square feet.
The 34 Decorating Den Interiors franchises throughout the state accounted for 16 percent of North American sales last year. Five of them were in the company’s top 20 performers. Texas also had the third and fourth highest producing regions among the company’s 80 geographical areas.
More than 100 home furnishings suppliers
“Our design professionals represent nearly 100 sources for home furnishings and offer our customers furniture, case goods, accessories, lighting, floor and wall coverings, draperies and other hard and soft window treatments, and closet systems.” Bugg explains. “They bring samples directly to the client’s home or office and provide complimentary design services and personally oversee projects through to installation.”
