A Design of Thankfulness

Giving and thanks are in the air and on our minds.  What can we say … ‘Tis the season. Let us take a moment to reflect on how thankful we are for so many things in our lives. James Craig showroom on Washington Ave

We started James Craig Furnishings in April 2008. Shortly after opening the doors to our showroom on Washington Avenue a couple of events you may remember happened:

1) Ike

2) The Great Financial Crisis of 2008

Four and half years later, here we are; Introducing new products, making new friends and working on some fabulous new projects with designers we adore.

Thank you.

We count you as our largest blessing.

Of course, we would not be here without our manufacturers and talented designers. We are thankful to have such warm relationships with our manufacturers and designers that give us access to such fashion forward designs.

We are also thankful for every lesson we’ve learned as first time small business owners over the years. Those are priceless.

On Thursday, as we take a moment to recognize those things in our lives that we are most thankful for, we count you among them. Thank you for supporting us these last  years. Thank you for trusting us with such personal decisions. Design makes a house a home … filled with a lifetime of memories and we are so thankful you trust us with such an intimate, important decision. We look forward to designing a lifetime more of memories with you.
