Terri McCormack and Jennifer Uddo met through McCormack’s former business on Magazine Street. The two found they had many things in common.
“We bring different things to table, but we both have a sense of humor, we are both pretty laid back and easy to get along with, at least we think so, and we both love design,” says McCormack.
Three years ago Haven Custom Furnishing was born. It is a to-the-trade showroom and a resource for the designers, decorators, architects and builders in southeast Louisiana. It offers more than 50 lines of furniture, accessories and lighting.
“Our showroom is a beautiful and comfortable setting where a trade professional can bring their clients,” she says. “We are here to work with designers not to compete with them. What we love about our job is that we get to meet so many wonderful people. We get involved with the designer and their clients as much or as little as they want us to.”
The showroom is on Jefferson Highway between New Orleans and Metairie, which McCormack states has become a small design hub with other businesses such as DOP Antiques, Brown & Damare, and Delk and Morrison.
“We have a space that’s convenient with lots of parking,” says McCormack. “And we didn’t need a beautiful building because we knew we could make any space look great. Plus, our overhead is so reasonable.“
