Full Service Please

When was the last time you went for full service at the gas station?  You know, where they pump your gas, wash your windows, check under the hood, check the tires (do they check the tires?  obviously it’s been a while).

When you do, it’s nice, isn’t it?  You feel…efficient.  Taken care of.  It’s one stop shopping personified.

Cordillia Baby Bedding

Why should designing the perfect child’s space be any different?

Of course, we’re famous for our furniture and decor, lighting and rugs, but we also offer the paint, the fabric and the know how to make it your own.  It’s the full kit and kaboodle.

Full service PUH-LEASE!
