“When I first met April Fore, I was looking for help to start the furnishing of my new home. I had spent a career in the design industry and it immediately became apparent that April had a wide and deep knowledge of sources whether upholstery, case goods, fabrics or decorative accessories. From her experience of co-owner of Furniture Specialties she knows from whom you can count on to deliver quality and just as importantly, what avenues to avoid. Her design sense is excellent and she does something unique—she actually designs to the client’s taste instead of suggesting a variation of her own style.
After a few weeks of working together, I discovered that April was solving design and functional problems that are part of the experience with every new home. That’s when I found out that she built houses with her father early in her career. All of that and she is just a joy to be with. The process of interior design is daunting even for someone who has worked for years in the industry. What I found in April is an experienced guide, a confident problem solver and a partner that I always look forward to working with as we complete this project.”
“To Whom It May Concern,
As the General Manager of a 150-room hotel in Asheville, I do not have a lot of extra time
when it comes to planning a renovation and refurbishment of our hotel. We are in downtown
Asheville and are sold out 85% of the time. April Fore understood this completely when she
helped us design a new look for our hotel and restaurant. She was extremely efficient and had
great taste when it came to meeting the design needs that were put in place by Starwood. I am
writing to recommend the services of April Fore and the entire Furniture Specialties
organization. My company has been using April and her team for the past five years and they
have always been able to meet our schedule and needs completely.
They did an excellent job, were always punctual, and offered the most competitive rates in
town. Her installers were fast, clean, and put everything together flawlessly. I would definitely
recommend her and Furniture Specialties as they are the best around.”
