Sofa, Tips and tricks, Doerr Furniture, Best furniture shop

Doerr Furniture was recently chosen by Gambit Weekly of Cue Magazine as the BEST place to buy furniture in 2015.

First things first, remember to bring room measurements. Mutter discusses in the article how customers often wish they knew or had the measurements of existing furniture to compare to showroom pieces. Having room measurements helps Mutter “create a floor plan that ensures the room isn’t crowded and people can move around easily.”

Throughout the article Mutter also touches on high end quality sofas, differences in seat cushions, leather furniture and some non-leather options that are popular.

We are all extremely proud of Mutter and her feature in Cue and are excited to be named New Orleans BEST place to buy furniture in 2015 by Gambit. Read the entire article here and be sure to shop all of our furniture here.

Doerr Design Duo

Doerr Furniture

A beautifully designed contemporary living space by Jamie Mutter.

Perhaps it’s something you thought about in the past. Maybe it’s something you’re rolling around in the back of your mind right now. You’ve decided you want your living room redone. Perhaps you want to go with a mid-century modern look with some of your uniqueness. Maybe you want to go with some classic New Orleans flavor in your space. You want that perfect look but perhaps are having trouble pin pointing it in your head. Have you thought about consulting an interior designer?

Doerr hosts a team of professional Interior Design Society (IDS) members whom can help build and mold the space in your revamping cross-hairs. As a professional member of IDS certain team members constantly receive updates on industry trends and movements. Allowing these members quick access to an extensive network of industry connections.

With a combined 26 years of deeply rooted experience the Doerr design duo made up of Jamie Mutter, Director of Design Service and Theresa Beaubouef Purcell one of 11 other Doerr design consultants can take your idea and turn it into a scene worthy of any home design magazine.

“I provide credibility. I’ve studied the trends, I can help you pin point that particular look you’re going for. I have the background as well as the connections to set your space up exactly how you want.” Purcell said.

For Mutter and Purcell the process to this free design service starts with the customer. The duo seeks out the clients likes and interests in furniture style, color and pattern design. Once they have learned this information an in-home consultation is set up.

“During the in-home consultation we like to figure out things like dimensions and layout. This is also a good time for the client to let us know what pieces they want to stay in the room, like a rug received from a loved one.” Said Mutter. “Once we have been to the clients home, heard the wants of the client and taken measurements of the spaces to be designed then we move to the design plan.

The design plan includes styles, patterns and possible pieces the client would like based on discussions between the client and designer. Floor plans and a design presentation are prepared and presented to the client. Once approval has been given then the project begins.

The Doerr design duo can be reached by appointment or walk in. Mutter typically prefers appointments where Theresa typically prefers walk-ins. She feels that walk-ins tend to be a little more adventurous. If you have any questions or would like some design pointers please call Jamie Mutter at (504) 947-0606 ext 109 or Theresa Purcell at (504) 947- 0606 ext. 110.

Back to School Furnishings

A beautiful 2 cushion sofa-sleeper perfect for any college housing situation.

We’re only a few short weeks away from the 2015 fall semester! It’s time to start prepping for your college room this year! Your home away from home, and most importantly your sanctuary when you’re not cramming for the next exam at the library.

First things first, storage. Chances are you’re going to be tight on space when you get into your new room. So, get creative when it comes to space conservation. Where you can’t store horizontally, start storing vertically. Think vertical dressers, Beds with lots of storage underneath and desks with lots of pull out drawers for storage will be imperative to your organization.

Back to school furnishings

Next up is comfort. A comfortable bed and mattress is imperative since your spot is most likely going to be tight on space. When you’re in your room you want it to be comfortable and inviting. Doerr Furniture has the perfect selection of beds and mattresses for tight college housing, be sure to stop in and check us out.

Now that you’ve got your room under control. Don’t forget about the main room or living space where you and your friends will spend a significant amount of time. A comfortable sofa will be imperative in your living space, but on those nights when you’ve got a friend or two staying over it’s nice to also have a spot for them to crash. A sleeper sofa is the perfect answer for this situation and Doerr Furniture would love to pair you with a great piece that can be sofa by day and sleeper by night.

Opportunists with moral responsibility and financial opportunity

Dieckhoff I Bell Doerr Furniture

Dieckhoff I Bell End tables

Have you ever wondered what happens to scrap material from construction sites? Owners of furniture manufacture company Dieckhoff I Bell Custom Made often did. The difference between David Dieckhoff and Daniel Bell from other folks is their backgrounds in construction and architecture design.

“New Orleans is undergoing a renaissance of construction and renovation. David and I feel we are in the right place at the right time and have an opportunity to save these one of a kind materials from landfills and use them to create a sustainable business model that seeks to bring high quality custom furniture into people’s homes.” Bell said.

Dieckhoff I Bell Custom Made Doerr Furniture

Dieckhoff I Bell draped tables

Bell and Dieckhoff started working together 3-4 years ago when Bell rented space in the same shop as Dieckhoff. Dieckhoff comes from an architecture and design based background and worked several years in a design collective that focuses on designing and building furniture. Bell also has experience working in commercial mill-work shops which exposed him to the finer craft of furniture and cabinet making aside from his construction background which helped spark the idea for a business model.

Bell and Dieckhoff salvage materials from construction sites and create high end quality custom furniture. The two decided to make things a bit more formal after working together on projects for several years and started Dieckhoff I Bell Custom Made. Belle and Dieckhoff consider themselves opportunists who have not just a moral responsibility to keep excess construction amterials out of landfills, but also a financial opportunity to create another form of income intrinsically linked to their work in construction and renovation of historical buildings.

“We have done several commissioned pieces together and currently have three pieces of custom furniture for sale at Doerr. A coffee table, book case and a media console. All three built from salvage wood from a construction project of mine. We are also currently working on designing and building several more pieces to exhibit at Doerr furniture.” Bell said.

Wonky Woodwork’s Artist Spotlight

Wonky Woodworks, Doerr Furniture

A weathered look, with a unique story is always nice when it comes to furnishing or accessorizing a home’s living space. There’s something about capturing a “did it yourself” look that really grabs peoples eye balls and makes brains think ‘Wow, that’s really cool!” Well, a local New Orleans artist recently decided to take a DIY hobby and make it her full time passion.

Rebekah Perre aka Wonky of Wonky Woodworks specializes in taking pallets and turning them into beautiful, creative home accessories and furniture pieces. Yes wood pallets, you know, those square, wooden bases used to easily transport almost all of the world’s products? Yeah those pallets.

“I got started recycling pallets into an outdoor sectional sofa with a chaise for my husband in the spring of 2014. There were a lot of leftover scraps that I started playing with and came up with my chalkboards and hooks.” Perre said.

Once Perre made that first outdoor sectional friends and family started placing their orders and encouraging Perre to take it on full time as a business. Perre said her husband gave her the funds to get started and has been behind her ever since supporting her “kooky obsession with pallets.”

As Perre really got into her first few pallet projects, she realized that perfection wasn’t going to be much of an option in her pieces. “The pallets can be very well worn by the time I get them and the end results were always a bit… wonky.” Perre said.

Perre can usually be found at the Mandeville Trailhead Market on Saturday mornings. The Mandeville Market is actually how Wonky Woodworks teamed up with Doerr. “Shane Mutter (CEO of Doerr Furniture) did a double take at one of my pieces while walking past my booth at the Market” Perre said.

Ever since, Doerr has been selling pieces by Wonky Woodworks showcased on their sales floor. Perre would like to keep Wonky Woodworks relatively small by selling to a few more local North Shore stores and offering customizable pieces to locals and visitors alike. “I would like for more people to know that Wonky is not just about wall art, there are also several furniture pieces that can be made using pallets.”

If you have any questions or would like to see what  Wonky Woodworks pieces are up for grabs at Doerr please give us a shout at (504) 947-0606.
