LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- When it's time for a new piece of furniture, where do you shop for it? If you're looking for something that you can't find at a discount store, a designer's studio is a great place to look.
Scott Paterek, lead designer of the Little Rock store Massimo, explained the difference between shopping in a big box store verses going to an actual designer's showcase.
He said that big box stores can be overwhelming and tend to group their matched sets together, but at a designer store, things are mixed up and they're going to let you see the ways you can design your own space in a unique way.
In addition, employees at designer stores don't work on commission, so they aren't just trying to make a quick buck. They are actually there to help you make your house feel like a home.
New furniture is a long term investment, but if you choose something with a timeless look, you can change up design by just changing out sofa pillows to swapping out rugs. Just keep your basics classic and simple. That way you can play with the look of your room a lot.
