How often have you seen something you thought would be absolutely perfect for your home only to find it's "to the trade" only? I know I have.
Well, interior designer Jamie Herzlinger, who participated in the 2011 Kips Bay Decorator Show House and was named as one of the Top Twenty Interior Design Firms in the country by Traditional Home Magazine, has launched JAMIESHOP.com to solve that problem.
This online buying service allows you to purchase luxury furnishings from any "to the trade" manufacturer. All the furnishings, wallpaper, lighting, fabrics, rugs and home accessories seen in magazines, such as Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Traditional Home and House Beautiful, are now available for purchase at up to 50% off retail. Perfect for anyone who wants to manage their design themselves but really needs access to the beautiful products of to-the-trade sources.
How it Works:
"JAMIESHOP.COM provides exclusive access to luxury "to the trade only" manufacturers at designer wholesale prices. Our fee structure is 25% above our designer wholesale net cost, to facilitate orders for customers. You will receive a copy a copy of the manufacturer's original invoice.
JAMIESHOP.COM is happy to provide a scaled drawing showing the item or items purchased in an existing space. Please feel free to contact us for information on how this works. This is a service provided exclusively by JAMIESHOP.COM and is at no additional charge."
With offices in AZ and NY, Jamie has over 20 years of design experience and brings that perspective to JAMIESHOP. One of the features I really like is the JAMIE LOOKBOOK, which features Jamie's designs and a listing of the featured manufacturers. In this gorgeous bedroom, the chandelier is from Jan Showers, the bed is from Therien and the rug is by Mansour Modern.
I'm very excited to have JAMIESHOP as this blog's first sponsor. As a special perk, My Notting Hill readers will also enjoy additional savings. Join JAMIESHOP and use promo code “Mynottinghill 2012” when placing an order and save up to $500 in free shipping, restrictions apply. Hope this helps you finally get that to-the-trade piece you've had your eyes on!
