  3. 3. Our U nique Concept Since 1969, INTERIORS by Decorating Den has grown to become the world's premier interior decorating franchisor, and a leader in the home furnishings industry. What's the reason for this growth? We offer a unique concept that meets the needs both of our franchise owners and of their decorating clients–professional in-home consultations and an incredible selection of interior furnishings. Our professionals have access to samples from top manufacturers--many to-the-trade-only. Using these samples, they present their custom designs and product suggestions in the comfort of the client’s home. The in-home sales concept gives our professionals the ability to sell an extensive selection of home furnishings without the restrictions and expense of a retail location. It offers clients, many of whom are busy two-career couples, the time-saving convenience of decision-making in their own homes, assuring proper scale, color, and balance—often impossible to achieve in a large retail store. The Dream Room competition and the resulting portfolio of our work has been incredibly important to our business for the past 13 years!” Barbara Elliott & Jennifer Ward-Woods Stone Mnt., Georgia
