The e-design concept puts control in the client’s hands: control of the budget, control of the schedule, and control to implement as much or as little of our design scheme as you choose. 

With this in mind, our E-Interiors design fees do not include the purchasing of any furnishings or materials on the client’s behalf.  However, we realize that not every client wants to do the purchasing for themselves.  For these clients, we offer Purchasing Services at an additional fee.


Our purchasing services may be right for you if:

  1. -You want to receive to-the-trade discounts.  Heather Zerah Interiors receives discounts ranging from 10% to 40% off retail price at many big name retailers like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware, as well as at the full range of exclusive trade-only vendors of high-end home furnishings, fabrics, and home accessories such as Baker, Kravet, B&B Italia, and Hickory Chair.

  1. -Rather than only using major retailers available to the public online or in your region, you want us to utilize the high-end trade-only home furnishings and fabrics in your room design.

  1. -You simply don’t have the time to place all the orders yourself!


If you want us to do the purchasing for you, we charge a 5% commission on the retail price of each item we purchase. 

For example, if we are purchasing the Oviedo Vintage Leather Chaise from Restoration Hardware, the discount and fee breakdown would be as follows:

Retail Price  -  20% Trade Discount  +  5% Purchasing Fee  =  Your Price

$2635.00     -            $527.00           +          $131.75           =  $2239.75

If you want us to utilize the high-end trade-only furnishings, fabric, and home accessory vendors in your design, you MUST specify this in advance, as it requires that we do the purchasing for you and increases the range of vendors we can look at when selecting pieces for your room.

However, if we limit your furnishing and fabric selections to the wide range of retailers available to the public, you will still have the option to use our Purchasing Services after you have received your completed design package.  Our goal is to make you happy.

NOTE: We sometimes utilize vendors who do not offer a discount to anyone.  We do not believe that good design should be dictated by discount policies.
