Pop-Up Shop “First Look” Event: November 15, 2018

Share an evening with friends, both old and new, while being transported to faraway places! Sip champagne, nibble on light bites, and shop handmade pieces curated through artisans—all while making a contribution towards a big cause.

On November 15, I will be hosting a “First Look” event prior to our ever-popular Pop-Up Shop, just in time for holiday shopping! I have scoured the world (more specifically France, Mexico, Morocco, and Turkey) to find beautifully unique items to add that “Wow!” factor to any space. From the woven French beach totes to the custom-made Moroccan rugs, these pieces all have a story to tell.

While the Pop-Up Shop is open from November 16-18, our ticketed “First Look” event on November 15 will allow you to get your hands on your favorite pieces before anyone else. Not to mention, 100% of the proceeds from these tickets will go directly to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention, a cause very close to my heart due to losing my brother, Mark, to suicide in 2014. Only 100 tickets are being sold, so don’t hesitate to snag yours!

Treat yourself to a piece of the world, treat your family to a unique holiday gift, and treat your home to the perfect artisan creation! We can’t wait to see you there!

PS: Did we mention that there will be cocktails, appetizers, and a DJ?


Can’t make the “First Look” Event?

No sweat, we would still love to see you!

Stop by the studio November 16-18 from 11am-5pm


Amy Kartheiser Design Services

Full Service Design

Client focused full service, turn-key design for projects of single rooms to whole-house design. I possess strong project management and organizational skills as well as offer a unique outlook. Let me guide you through the entire home design process, taking care of every detail and deadline so you can just relax and enjoy the creation of your new home.


Design in a Day

Enjoy 3.5 uninterrupted hours of my time answering any and all of the questions you could possibly think to ask. Examples could be: design dilemmas, furniture arrangement, fabric swatches, paint colors, whether or not to knock down a wall…you name it! This service allows the client the freedom to work on their own project, but with the guidance of professional advice.


Design Online

Perfect for clients who live out of state. Simply fill out a questionnaire online and send in photos and measurements of the room(s) you are looking to redesign. I, or one of my experienced Designers, will come up with a detailed plan for the particular room – from furniture layout to furniture selections to paint to fabrics to accessories – all within the budget given and without ever stepping into your home. Clients can order one or ten rooms – there is no limit.
