Charleston Women Summer 2024

43 | | It’s not uncommon to hear any woman say, “well, if I had an interior design team, my house would look like that too.” When we begin a design project for our home, we usually know the colors we want to use, and the look and feel we want to create - yet somehow when we walk into the furniture store, new things catch our eye, confusion sets in and there goes our well-made plans. We often get overwhelmed with furniture placement, sizing, and all the accents that add the flair or pops of color we’re looking for. In fact, a lot of us often walk right back out of the store, go online, and just begin adding things to cart with the intention of simply returning it if it doesn’t work out. Even with the best of intentions, return headaches, shipping delays, and sizing issues make something that is supposed to be easy and fun, much more complicated and frustrating. Helping customers navigate the sometimes daunting task of home decorating, is just one of the many reasons why the Lowcountry loves Haven’s Furniture & Decor. Angie Balderson, owner and operator of Charleston and Mount Pleasant’s choice for Best Furniture and Home Decor Store, has created a business model that everyone loves. With her “straight from the floor and out the door concept,” shoppers are thrilled that if they see something they do love, they can take it home the same day (while also saving 20%-50% off the retail price). Plus, their talented and award-winning design team, the Haven’s Mavens (as they’re affectionately called), are there on-site to help you with any design project for no additional fees. From furniture and fabric selection to in-home measuring and staging, they take care of the heavy lifting and put the fun back into decorating – magically making your home your haven.
