After purchasing a beautiful four bedroom, five bathroom Mediterranean style home on Eagle Mountain Lake (and then having to remodel the whole house due to a leak), the couple decided to explore a different design route. While both were open to the idea of modern design, Karla had her hesitations.
After countless attempts to find a store that offered both high quality modern furniture and great service, Karla and Rich’s search ended when they entered the Dallas showroom.
Upon meeting designer Beryl Lubner, they soon realized that Cantoni presented a unique and exciting array of product. Together with Beryl’s guidance, ideas and expertise Karla and Rich were able to express their vision and find the design experience they were searching for.
The couple’s first purchase from Cantoni, a brown Marino sectional, came right off the floor—as did many of the pieces in the Lopez home. This was followed with the purchase of the One and Only dining table and two Allure chairs by Malerba.
After the initial purchases were made, and trust established, Rich started to share images and floor plans with Beryl. At that point Beryl got to work visualizing and helping guide the couple in choosing the right pieces of furniture for their new home. Karla was still a bit reluctant to fully embrace a modern style but thanks to Cantoni’s versatility and Beryl’s interior design prowess, Karla found an affinity for more modern pieces.
The project is still in progress and so far, each piece that Karla and Rich have selected, have proven to be perfect choices. Beryl explains, “Mr. Lopez has a great eye and a strong creative vision, but I didn't always agree with his choices. When I did disagree I told him my feelings and why, which he respected, and is why we work so well together."
Karla, who walked into Cantoni as a traditional furniture buyer, now chooses modern pieces whenever she visits. Beryl explains, “As a designer, you have to know how to incorporate your creative ideas while still paying attention to the client’s needs as well as maintaining their vision.” A great example of great design following our Triple C Service (Cantoni. Customer. Commitment.) Beryl adds, You can see the success of the Lopez project being that, “their house reflects their lifestyle, captures the individuality of Karla and Rick—together with connecting with my ideas and emphasis on what they value.”
