Let the Adventure Begin at the Rochester Design Center Furniture Store in Rochester, NY
Dec 16, 2015
It’s Dani Polidor from Suite Artistry. So glad you found your way to our blog because we love having you on this Rochester Design Center journey. For those of you that are new to this adventure, it all started with a Race for Space Contest and we won! I say “we” because even though I have been awarded the free rent for a year, generously donated by DHD Ventures and the build-out from Race for the Space, and got to participate in the coaching sessions and make presentations, it truly has been a takes-a-village effort. Special shout out to friends, families, colleagues, contracts, suppliers and future shoppers, who understand the vision and the idea that a furniture store in Rochester NY can be so much more than just furniture. It’s the beginning of an incredible beginning for Rochester Design Center in Rochester, our world headquarters. (#goingglobalpeople)
The construction of the fabulous DHD Ventures Space is progressing well. I want to give a special thank you to all who donated their time, money, energy and enthusiasm for this awesome project, especially the Race for the Space founder, team, partners, supporters, coaches, entrants and finalists. Thank you Mark Lui for explaining the vision so well in your Editor’s letter in this month’s Rochester Magazine.
As we work like elves this holiday season to get things started, each day brings good tidings of great joy as we choose an amazing carpet color or fabulous appliance for one of our live demonstrations. Here’s a gander of where we’ll be on East Ave:
Bonus? We have awesome neighbors like the Rochester Contemporary Art Center and we’re excited to be a part of the urban experience in Rochester, NY. You see, and we’ll be honest right from the beginning, we’re not going to be like any other furniture store you’ve ever seen. In our space, you won’t “shop”, you’ll see, taste, touch, smell and hear what happens when great design impacts the way you live. Cooking demonstrations? Yes! Visiting artists, musicians, connoisseurs of fine wine, chocolate and coffee? Yes! You see, dear friend, it really is a lifestyle store. It starts with embracing the space you’re in, (if you need us to help you find one, we can do that too #TruthNorthRealtors) and then enhancing that space with the just the right furniture, fixtures and finds. We’ll have sample spaces (#peoplearesovisual) and if you like what you see, all of the merchandise will be available for immediate delivery. (#winning) We know that quality and value are just as important to you as they are to us, which is why we have worked diligently to create great relationships with awesome suppliers, contractors and vendors that have the same high standards we do.
We can’t wait to get started, which is why you can contact us today, for your own personal shopper! In the meantime, please enjoy a fabulous holiday season with those that matter most and please know how much you already matter to us. We’re hoping in holiday seasons yet to come, Rochester Design Center Roc, will be a gift that keeps on giving.
