Owner, Beth Claybourn Interiors
How did you start Beth Claybourn Interiors?
It was my dream to own my own business, and after 12 years of experience I moved forward with it. It has been blissful ever since, and we celebrated 30 years in business in 2015.
What’s the secret to your success?
There is a need for the timeless style of Beth Claybourn Interiors. We are not trendy, and our clients enjoy great design choices that are classic.
What makes you unique?
Our designers don’t charge by the hour, and clients pay retail on the merchandise – so every penny spent goes into the home rather than to fees. We are also more diverse and comprehensive than other firms and we develop personal relationships with our clients.
In addition to the 5,000-square-foot New Orleans showroom, we have a 12,000-square-foot showroom and a 10,000-square-foot warehouse in Baton Rouge. Such a large in-stock inventory is uncommon for a design firm.
What is the scope of your services?
We work with our clients with their home from the ground up and are involved at every step. Our job is to bring a client’s vision into reality.
Do people buy from your online shop?
Yes, it’s growing quickly, and clients also like visiting a location to see the inventory.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
The New Orleans location offers custom draperies, cabinetry and custom bedding, including Hungarian down. There’s also a large inventory of new and antique furniture, accessories and artwork.
