How do I know if Studio 39 is the design team for me?

That is a great question! There are many designers out there, but with our professional training and years of experience, we have honed and perfected our process so that everything runs smoothly. Our approach starts with getting to know you, what is significant to your family, and your lifestyle. We consider your  ourselves "out of the box" thinkers, but we are also rooted in practicality. Our goal is to create a beautiful and functional space that suits your family's lifestyle and needs.

 

Furthermore, working with Studio 39 saves you time, money, and the stress associated with taking on the project yourselves. With our plethora of experience and resources, we tackle every aspect of your project so you don't have to lift a finger!

How much is a typical design project?

Our projects can vary widely in costs and are dependent on scope of work, budget (yes, we work work within your budget!) and whether or not construction is required. Through our years of experience, we have found that full furnishing of a medium-sized room starts at around $35,000 plus design fees.

How long is a typical design project?

Many factors play into the timeline of your project. Construction, scope of work, and trades all factor into how long a project will take. Furthermore, we are experiencing unprecedented delays in shipping and manufacturing due to COVID-19. Furnishing and accessorizing projects can run about 6-9 months and projects that require construction can run from about 8-14 months.

What is your design process and will I be involved?

Through our years of experience, we have perfected our 14-step design process. You can read more about our process here. While you are involved in all of the major decisions in your project, the Studio 39 team is here to do the rest! We create the design plan and use a combination of drawings, renderings, and mood boards to present our ideas. We manage all trades and work with your contractor (if applicable) to make sure everything is completed seamlessly.

We welcome feedback and make any necessary edits to your project's design plan so all you have to do is sign off and relax while we manage the rest!

Will you incorporate any of my existing furniture?

Yes! We love to incorporate our client's existing pieces in our designs. Sometimes that means using the piece as is, other times we refinish or repurpose items to give them a new life. This helps our client's save money and it helps us on our mission to reduce the environmental impact of our industry.

Do I purchase all my furnishings through you?

How soon should I reach out for my new build or renovation project?
