We’ve all been there. We walk into a store with a ton of stuff, yet there’s nothing that’s EXACTLY what we want. Grocery stores, department stores, shoe stores and, yes, even furniture stores.

The beauty of Steinhafels is that you never need to feel that way! That’s because many of our pieces can be special ordered to your exact specifications.

Steinhafels Decorating Solutions Interior Designer Aaron Keller has taken the time to compile some pictures from his projects that highlight the creativity and beauty of special order pieces.

Aaron says, "Special ordering can make your room unique and help you reflect your personality. Not up to taking the plunge into the realm of special orders? A designer can make the process fun, easy, mistake-free and help ease your mind!"

Here are some examples of furniture pieces shown in the store and what they look like in Aaron’s client’s home after special ordering. Aaron adds, "It’s definitely worth the wait to get exactly what you want."

Aaron has some advice if you want a little extra help in your special ordering endeavors. He explains, "Many companies also have additional frames not shown on the floor that can be special ordered from catalogs. A Decorating Solutions Interior Designer can help navigate through the catalogs and find a unique piece just for you."

Here are two spaces that utilized catalogs to special order.

Sofa, chaise, chairs, end tables and even lamps all out of in-store catalogs.

Sofa and chairs out of catalogs.

Interior design is a reflection of YOU! Have fun with it, and don’t be scared to try something a little daring and off the beaten path. You can tell guests, "It’s a one of a kind!" How cool is that?!
