Here is info about my company Interior Guild LLC:

We realize shopping (online or in stores), for home furnishings, is time consuming, overwhelming and not an effective means of furnishing a home that reflects a more personalized lifestyle. Hiring an interior designer is too expensive and unattainable for the majority. So it’s become the norm for most people to live in uninspiring, mediocre, “cookie cutter” or “mismatched”, and partially furnished homes.

Interior Guild LLC, launching in April 2014, is a game changer in the online, home furnishings industry by offering, b-to-b and b-to-c, “assisted “commerce solutions to solve this problem.

“Furniture has been called the last remaining $1 Billion e-commerce opportunity,” said Carl Prindle, President and CEO of Furniture.com, Inc. “Capturing this complex opportunity requires a ‘wow’ customer experience that can only be delivered by marrying leading technology with the scale and expertise of world class furniture chains.”

Emerging web technologies now allow the retailers to interact with customers in much the same way as they would in a store and we plan on creatively combining these new efficient and effective technologies to capture, communicate, qualify, propose, sell to and retain audiences in a new manner.

Interior Guild is being positioned as the web’s most convenient way to furnish a home by utilizing a proven all-inclusive, design, furniture & delivery system.

By utilizing technology Interior Guild’s brands are able to deliver a highly personalized & convenient “assisted” design, furniture commerce & delivery experience online.
Clients receive designer-picked, furniture bundles, based on their floor plan, design style, budget and lifestyle needs all in one delivery/installation.

Corporate slogan: Convenience, delivered.

Interior Guild has 3 online brands: Metro66.com (geared toward men’s furniture & home design), Bloom-a-room.com (geared toward professional women’s’- furniture & home design) and Via-staging.com (furniture rentals tailored towards home buyers).
