This model allows the Company to remain on the leading edge of the market by identifying trends and developing product significantly faster than others. Because of this vertical integration, Decorize is able to serve its customers with shortened delivery times for custom orders. Decorize serves more than 3,000 retail accounts, including national brand names such as Stein Mart, Broyhill Furniture Industries, OfficeMax, Home Depot, May/Federated Stores, Neiman Marcus, Rooms To Go, and Sears-The Great Indoors.
