Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes to bring your dream home into a reality? Let me give you a sneak peek into the world of procurement in interior design.

Sourcing Your Design Vision

The journey begins with finding the perfect pieces that not only match your style but also fit seamlessly into your space. We meticulously source products to bring a cohesive look or aesthetic to your home, aligning size, shape, and functional elements to create a professionally designed space. This sets the stage for a space that not only looks beautiful but also functions perfectly for your lifestyle.

Streamlined Communication

By entrusting us with procurement, you cut out the middleman. This means direct communication with manufacturers, suppliers, and contractors, ensuring your vision is executed cohesively and efficiently. This is the essence of Design Vision’s concierge role in your Full-Service Interior Design project. It allows for a synchronized vision, streamlining communication and reducing the likelihood of misunderstandings or delays. This direct line of communication also allows us to gain a deep understanding of your aesthetic preferences, ensuring that every piece selected reflects your personal style and vision for the space.

Error-Free Execution

With Design Vision at the helm, miscommunications and errors are minimized. From choosing finishes to managing logistics, every step is meticulously handled to keep your project on track and stress-free. Our team carefully coordinates with manufacturers, suppliers, and contractors to ensure that each item is ordered, delivered, and installed correctly and on time. This integrated approach eliminates any potential delays or misunderstandings which can arise when managing procurement independently and ensures a stress-free experience from start to finish.

Exclusive Resources and Expert Knowledge

Our industry connections give us access to a vast network of suppliers and artisans, allowing us to source unique pieces that elevate your space to new heights of sophistication. This access to exclusive resources means that we can offer you options that are not available to the public, ensuring that your space is truly one-of-a-kind. Additionally, our expert knowledge of quality standards, pricing structures, and design trends allows us to navigate the market efficiently, ensuring that you receive the highest quality products at the most competitive prices.

Expertise in Quality and Budget

We understand that quality and budget are important considerations in any design project. Our expertise in quality standards and pricing structures allows us to select products that not only meet your aesthetic preferences but also your budget requirements. By staying on top of the latest design trends, we can help you create a space that is both beautiful and functional, without breaking the bank.

Efficient Time Management

Our expertise in logistics ensures a streamlined process, saving you time and ensuring the success of your project. We are well-versed in the intricate logistics that go into procurement, allowing us to anticipate and address any potential issues before they arise. This proactive approach helps to keep your project on track and ensures that it is completed on time and within budget.

Transparent Communication at Every Stage

In the procurement process, we handle any hiccups that may arise during delivery, including following up with manufacturers. This can involve quite a bit of time, often several phone calls and maybe even dozens of emails, as we persist through what can sometimes feel like a challenging process. We keep you informed with weekly updates, ensuring you’re always in the loop and know what to expect.

Hassle-Free Warranty Management

We handle any warranty issues that may arise, keeping you informed every step of the way and ensuring a seamless experience. Our team is experienced in managing warranty issues and will work diligently to resolve any problems that may arise, allowing you to enjoy your newly designed space without worry.

The Procurement Process

Here’s a breakdown of the steps involved in managing the procurement process:

  1. Find products or design custom items that fit the approved design plan and budget with respect to style, scale, size and condition.
  2. Request finish samples or fabric swatch cuttings, to verify colors and finishes if necessary.
  3. Check options, specifications, and availability of all items within the context of the project timeline.
  4. Request pricing quotes — a process which involves round after round of communication with vendors and manufacturers to confirm pricing and ensure availability.
  5. Present items to client for final approval and payment.
  6. Create Purchase Orders, purchase items from manufacturers and make all payments.
  7. Arrange shipping and freight deliveries, confirming all addresses are correct.
  8. Set up receiving warehouse for delivery and storage of items.
  9. Track shipments with close attention to expected delivery dates. This is a recurring, weekly task which lasts anywhere from weeks to months.
  10. Track all costs associated with the project.
  11. Confirm receipt of individual items as they arrive at receiving warehouse. Items must be inspected by receiving protocol and held in storage until everything is ready for delivery.
  12. Evaluate all obstacles, discrepancies, issues, damages, or any other problems.
  13. Coordinate replacements or repairs and handle any warranty issues with manufacturer.
  14. Organize White Glove delivery, coordinate and oversee installation of all products, including artworks and accessories.
