We as human beings value our individuality. It separates us and makes us uniquely who we are. Being an interior designer, I work to create that same distinction in each client’s project. That task is made easier when I work with Sam Moore, a Hooker Furnishings company. Sam Moore specializes in fabric-to-frame furniture customization, and the options for one-of-a-kind home products are practically endless! Here are a few reasons why I love working with them.

Fabulous Fabrics

One of the most challenging but exciting parts of being an interior designer is finding new and innovative ways to meet the demands of each of my vastly different clients. A mom who wants a livable, practical space for her young kids might seek something completely different from my entrepreneurial client on Rodeo Drive. One of the ways I meet the need is by tailoring each piece with the plethora of options I have with Hooker Furniture and Sam Moore. From neutrals to navy and everything in between, I have an infinite amount of color customizations.

Options also include various materials that can be used for customized furniture. I love that I can offer my clients choices of natural cotton, prints, jacquards, comfortable linens, gorgeous plaids and so many more texture and pattern varieties. Regardless of a client’s penchant towards trendy or traditional, I know I can give them furniture with the personal touches they prefer.

I also love that I can take a great foundational piece of furniture and fit it in a beautiful, kid-friendly performance fabric. Sam Moore has over 100 performance options from which I can choose that are stain-resistant, super easy to clean, and very durable. Using these, I know my clients who are parents won’t wince every time their kids come in from messy playdates and pounce on the chairs. There’s peace of mind knowing I can select functional furniture choices for them that will live in a more formal setting.

Customized Cushions & Chairs

If you’ve been around for a bit, you’ll know how much I talk about the intertwining of form and function. When it comes to design, the two concepts are equally important in my book. Interior photos for social media with every piece perfectly placed are nice. But I want my clients to have a space that not only looks gorgeous but FEELS great as well. Let’s face it, that stunning living room I create for you? Life will happen there! I want to give my clients chairs that will become their favorite places to sit after a long day. I want to design the place you always go to read bedtime stories to your grandson, or to enjoy your coffee in the morning. Comfort is a priority when I’m looking at the seating in a space, and Sam Moore’s cushion and chair offerings prove that they’ve thought of everything!

Now, you can choose from three cushions, each with varying levels of comfort. Spring Down Luxe is a premium cushion sheathed in a down-proof ticking, and it features a three-inch pocketed coil spring system surrounded by polyurethane foam and topped with a 50/50 blend of down and fiber. The Down Plush has a polyurethane foam core topped with a 50/50 blend of down and fiber in a down-proof ticking as well. Then there’s the Classic, which is constructed with a polyurethane foam core topped with bonded fiber in a woven ticking. Gone are the days of “one-size-fits-all” comfort. Everyone’s body is different and requires assorted degrees of support, but we all deserve supreme enjoyment from our furniture. Sam Moore is securing that we can optimize each chair to our liking with this broad range of cushions.

Start to Finish(es)

When someone entrusts me with the design of their ideal space we typically begin with a consultation, and then we proceed to strategize on how to make it all happen. My clients often have envisioned what those spaces look like in their minds in great detail.The last thing I want to do is disappoint them with news that I can’t get their design just right. This is why custom finishes matter so much! If I’m redesigning a room with existing elements, I can choose from cherry, rustic wood, black white and gray tones in finishes to perfectly match the other pieces in the room.

As if that wasn’t enough, you can even determine whether you prefer medium or high sheen on the pieces you select. No stone is left unturned with the over a dozen finishes offered. Each of them goes through up to 12 steps including dry brushing, highlighting, glazing and antiquing. If you can think it, they have it! Grey Metallic, Aged Black and Coveside are just a few of the splendid options. You can customize your items with amazing standard finishes with no upcharge! Tailoring these furniture pieces means I can give my clients interiors that are unrivaled.

Have a Seat — YOUR Seat!

One of the biggest myths I regularly debunk has to do with square footage and its relation to a designer’s ability to beautify the space. I remind my clients that no space is too small to undergo a wondrous transformation. You only need to find the appropriate decor and master the execution to make it a reality. A major part of that process involves furniture that will complement the space—not just in color, but also in size and configuration.

What would you say if I told you that the Sam Moore collection from Hooker Furniture allows you to decide where or even IF a chaise has an arm? You know that little corner you’ve always wished housed an accent chair? Well, now you can pick out a piece and feel confident that it will fit impeccably. The 13 custom seating styles include armless and left- and right-arm facing seats. These options are available in loveseats, open chaises, and bumper chaises, as well as curved armless chairs. As a designer, it’s great to let clients know that I can create furniture for them that will fit practically anywhere in any space of their choosing. This is how I work to create nonpareil spaces for clients. That’s only possible because of partners like Hooker Furniture and Sam Moore!
