Our Team

At Four Corners Home, we all love what we do, and nothing is as rewarding as completing a project that the client loves.  While we enjoy sharing our passion and enthusiasm with customers, it’s our design experience and skills which bring a vision to fruition.

But our job involves much more than just technical skills.

We ask questions and listen to responses, constantly striving to offer our clients fresh ideas and suggestions which meet their individual needs. This consultative approach takes thought and time, but in the end the results prove the worth of this method.

Be it selecting a gift, choosing an accessory or undertaking a large scale design project, our team at Four Corners Home stands ready to offer advice and expertise to ensure total satisfaction.

Let us show you our definition of customer care.
