Interior Expressions is Oro Valley’s first, and still only, interior design showroom. The business model of Interior Expressions is like no other. The business was designed as a true one-stop shop, says owner and interior designer Betty Jones.
Jones explained how the business got started. “When we first moved to the Oro Valley area from Iowa in 2001, I spent a great deal of time running all over Tucson and Scottsdale to find what was best for my clients. I figured if I was frustrated by this, homeowners must be going crazy, especially homeowners new to the area that don’t know where to go or whom to trust. We do anything from a pillow to helping you build an entire home.”
“So, I decided to open a one-stop shop for homeowners. People are surprised when I tell them, “If it isn’t illegal or immoral, we can help them with anything for the inside or outside of their home. If we don’t do it ourselves, we can recommend trades we have vetted and used ourselves,” Jones added.
Personalized Products and Services
Their showroom is a tasteful mix of samples and displays from kitchen and bath, all types of flooring, furniture and upholstery, window treatments, accessories and much more. Jones explained that 95% of what they sell is personalized for each homeowner. That way the homeowner gets what is best for them versus what some store happened to have in stock.
Made in USA
Wherever possible, Interior Expressions features Made in the U.S.A. products. It is a core belief Jones has, instilled early in her life by her career Air Force father. “I’m not interested in selling cheap, poorly made junk from Asia that won’t last. Plus I want to keep as many jobs here in America as possible,” Jones said.
Exclusive Upholstery Line
Jones is excited about her newest expansion, Comfort-Fit™ Upholstery. She has partnered with a fourth-generation AZ upholstery manufacturer to enable a homeowner to buy a sofa, chair or sectional that is custom fit for them, with a 120-day Comfort-Fit™ Guarantee.
