Joan Champiomont

Design Consultant

Days off: Monday & Tuesday

Joan fell in love with Cantoni on her first visit, and “after purchasing pieces for myself, I was inspired,” she says. “I decided this was where I wanted to be.” An interior design graduate of the Art Institute of Houston, she has spent her lengthy career in the design realm, including launching her own high-end pet accessory company.

The Houston native’s aesthetic blends simple, clean neutrals accented with pops of color in art and accessories—and an abundance of texture. “I love elegant, sophisticated, romantic spaces,” she says, adding that she might pair a Mongolian lamb throw with a metallic sculpture. “I favor anything that shimmers.” But she most enjoys energetically searching for ideal design solutions for her clients, who find her to be genuine, trustworthy and enthusiastic.

“I love introducing clients to ideas they may not have considered before so they can make the best decision for their home,” she says. “My goal is to enable them to truly enjoy and appreciate their own space.” You’ll find her tapping Cantoni’s large range of products to “paint a visual concept for a client,” she says. “Working for such a well-known, resourceful company gives me great joy."

I just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude for Joan’s guidance and patience in helping me pick out our sofa. It is flawless (as well as gorgeous)! I was extremely pleased to find that the cushions were firmer than I had anticipated, which I had hoped. I think perhaps it was due to the three versus two cushion option. The Cantoni delivery guys were also wonderful and very considerate in their handling of the sofa. Overall, we are so pleased with the entire experience and will undoubtedly visit Cantoni again for future furnishings!

Working with Joan was a pleasure. Before meeting her, we had no idea where to begin in terms of decorating our new apartment. She not only did a wonderful job in helping us pull all the pieces together but managed to do so with such ease, expertise and charm. We are so happy with the end result and look forward to working with Joan in the future.

We are so thankful for Joan’s help in selecting a number of pieces for our home, including a sectional, which Cantoni’s delivery team impeccably transported, despite the challenges they faced due to our location on the top floor. We love everything and are pleased with how it looks in our home. We can’t wait to receive the additional pieces for our dining room. We are very happy and satisfied customers and will be back for sure.

Joan was very knowledgeable, obviously experienced and seemed genuinely interested in helping me find the perfect piece for my needs and wants. She told me to take my time and make sure I love what I buy.

Joan, I had to share how elated I was with your wonderful delivery team. The guys were polite, respectful and took their shoes off before they entered and placed the bed where I wanted. It was by far the best delivery team I have ever had in my home. Thank you!

— Janice and Eric M., Houston, Texas

I am beyond satisfied with my experience at Cantoni and the quality of the media console and rug we purchased. I highly recommend Joan to assist you with your design and purchasing needs! Not only was Joan extremely friendly but also took the time to understand our needs and design taste.

— Ryan E., Houston, Texas
