Decorating Den Interiors Honors 2017’s Top Design Businesses

Furniture World News


Decorating Den Interiors recently named its Chairman’s Circle award winners—the top ten in sales in the U.S. and the top two in Canada for 2017.

“The Chairman’s Circle awards are the first we announce each year,” says Jim Bugg, Jr., president and CEO. This recognition was started by the late James S. Bugg, Sr., who served as company chairman from 1984 until his death in 2015.

“These award winners were significant in helping to lead our company to its sixth consecutive year of retail sales growth,” Bugg said. “They also exemplify the increasing number of our franchise partners who have out-grown being a home-based business to become based in an outside studio/office with a team of decorators and other support staff.”

“Two are first time Chairman’s Circle achievers: Jan Bromberek and Canada’s Katie Rioux, who also was our 2017 Decorator of the Year,” Bugg added.

“Our company’s wide-spread geographic presence is highlighted by these distinguished owners,” Bugg emphasized. “These top franchises operate in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, Texas, and the Canadian Provinces of Alberta and Ontario.”
