Spring 2019! Updates and news to share

Happy Spring from A & D Studios!

Greetings all! For those of you who just returned from High Point Furniture Market, I hope you were inspired and were able to stop by and see the new Woodbridge Furniture Showroom at its new location = 200 Steele, 3rd floor, next to Taylor King Furniture. The showroom was beautiful and chock a block full of new pieces. Congratulations Woodbridge and so well done! Taylor King never looked better, right next door and had record attendance despite the wild weather. Designmaster, the best in Dining class looked stunning and relevant as always! Thibaut and Anna French were sure to amaze showing off the new Tropics collection along with Performance exclusive Landmark collection and many others beauties chimed in. Again, record crowds there too! I know I missed many of you as I had to depart early as my husband George is working thru some health issues. My dear friend and colleague, Jennifer Myers saved the day, flew in and pinch hit for me- again! Thanks so much Jennifer! Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you with any of these fantastic companies now that we are back home.

My time with Helser Brothers Drapery Hardware has come to an end - April 30. Seems they re evaluated their business and are taking all their sales efforts inside. All the outside Sales Reps. were let go on Friday, April 5. I wish them all the best as we all move forward.

Stay tuned as I will be representing an even better Drapery Hardware line package here shortly! I do thank you and appreciate your faith in A & D Studios and my lines. I realize you have many choices and I hope you will continue to do business with us because of the exclusive lines we represent and the service we offer.

In closing, we wish you and your families a lovely and blessed Easter or Passover Holiday. Happy Spring too!

We are thrilled to be reunited with the storied line of Scalamandre'! If you have not shopped Scalamandre' in awhile, you will be surprised at all the new products introduced over the past 18 months. Susan North, Scalamandre's Creative Director has done an amazing job of bringing forth relevant product. As well, she has combed the Scalamandre' archives and has re-introduced some true treasures!

Happy 2016! As we welcome in a New Year, let me take a moment to share with you many MAJOR changes from the last year.

We said "farewell" to Polly McArthur & Associates Showroom in the fall of 2015 as Polly retired and sold her building. It was sad for us and yet we are very happy for Polly and her next adventure of relaxing! I so enjoyed working with her and the showroom team for over 10 years. As a result, the following lines have moved to the following showrooms:

JAB and Brands has moved to The Dixon Group, in their new space, Suite 232. JAB is proud to be a part of this beautiful showroom and team!

Thibaut and Anna French are also now at The Dixon Group. The lines are up and ready for your shopping experience! Please include The Dixon Group on your next shopping trip at SDC.

The remaining lines from Polly's; Beaumont &  Fletcher, Christian Fischbacher - with Harsey & Myung Jin, Chelsea Editions, Colony, DeGourney, de La Couna, Gemelli, Janet Yonaty, Marvic, Minton- Spidell, Scalamandre' and Suzanne Tucker Home have all found at home at the newly remodeled and lovely
Michael Folks Showroom.

It was a very busy Fall! Lots of packing, moving and unpacking! As a result, our web site is up to date with all these changes. Please feel free to shop from the comfort of your office and home by simply clicking on the links. From there you will discover a world of exclusive products for both Residential and Contract applications.

Once again, we complete 2015 with grateful hearts. We thank you for your on-going support and business! As a token of our appreciation, we have made a donation in name of our Clients and Vendors to: No Kid Hungry, Share Our Strength, a fantastic organization, working hard to end childhood hunger in America. This is our 4th year of donating to this worthy cause, in honor of your valued business. Thank you for making this possible!

As always, we learn so much from you!  Please continue to let us know what we can do better - in order to serve you.  Thanks again for visiting the A&D Studios/ Lesli Ann Studios web site.

Some New Years thoughts as we start upon 2016: Every day is an opportunity to make the right and smarter choices, in all aspects of our lives. May we greet each day with enthusiasm to make new choices and start anew!

Warmest regards,

Lesli Ann Cone

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2012! I hope your Holiday season was filled with JOY!

As we embark upon a new year I want to communicate a few changes at A&D Studios. As of January 31, 2011 I will no longer be representing JAB, Chivasso, Soleil Bleu and Gardisette Fabrics. I will continue to represent JAB Decorative hardware, Vol II and Metropolitan in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. If you have any JAB orders you are currently working on, I would very much appreciate if you can place them prior to month end.  Thank you! The new JAB (fabrics only) representative for Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho is Marck Bloemers, Sales Director of JAB Anstoetz. His office number is: 253-274-0344. If you are located in Montana and Wyoming, your new JAB representative is the Moda Antica Showroom: 303-733-9003 phone and sales@moda-antica.com via email.  As always I am happy to assist you with your Decorative hardware needs. Polly McArthur & Associates is continuing to represent all the JAB products in their beautiful Seattle showroom.  I have enjoyed working with you all over the past 11 years with the JAB company. It has truly been an honor for me and I am thrilled to continue to represent the JAB Decorative Hardware. Thanks so much for all your business and support! You can always view the complete Hardware product line at: www.jab.de/en/curtainrods/binder.

I am thrilled to share with you that as of January 1, 2012, Polly McArthur & Associates is now proudly representing Thibaut and Anna French!  They are ready for you to visit and browse the oldest and most exclusive wall paper line in America as well as exquisite fabrics!

In the coming week, my line representation on the web site and the links will be updated to reflect these changes. Please stay tuned and let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in creating beautiful environments for your clients! Thanks again and our sincerest wishes for a happy, healthy and wise New Year!
