Featuring Stephanie Cohen
We recently interviewed the Founder & CEO of Stephanie Cohen Home, Mrs. Stephanie Cohen. During the interview, she happily shared the story of the culmination of years of creative interior design work that turned into her flagship furniture store and grew into an e-commerce website as a home brand. It is amazing to see how she managed to overcome the challenges she has faced as an entrepreneur and a mother of three young boys.
She made us aware that creative clients are always the most rewarding to work with because they bring with them their imagination and enthusiasm. She shared the experience she gathered after more than 15 years in business as a creative interior designer.
“I worked from home for about five years until my children were a little bit older and then we opened our first showroom which we outgrew within two years and moved to our second location which we outgrew two years after that. Now, I have a 40,000 sq. foot high-end furniture showroom, with my design center in the heart of the store. As well as an e-commerce website.“ READ INTERVIEW
