Patty Frankhouser


I enjoy the clean lines of contemporary furniture with a little something unique added in.  I love the live edge tables as a mix with contemporary.  I love our selection of European vendors, as they have wonderful designs and excellent quality.


Nature, everything you see can inspire.  I love going to our art museums and sitting in front of a Monet or a Van Gogh and even Andy Warhol to get inspired.  Color, design and space planning…They are part of our everyday life.  We just need to be reminded.

Client Interaction

While working with clients, I feel my sincerity and sense of humor make my customers relax while shopping at PerLora.  I am able to provide a great amount of information on the products and vendors.  I get excited about the vendors, especially the European vendors.

I enjoy working with young customers and helping them get started in their new home.  I’ve worked with many millennials, including a residence in LA and DC, but I also relate to my own age group.  When I work with a client I don’t see age, but the space we are trying to work with and meeting the needs.

I have a proven track record with my customers.  I hope that my unique style and the vendors that I enjoy working with help my customers create an environment that they will enjoy for years to come.

Residential or Commercial?

I started years ago in commercial design and have had the opportunity, while working at Perlora, to do some commercial projects, including a judge’s chamber.  They are quite fun, but I enjoy the creativity of residential design.

Thoughts on Reality Design TV Shows

I don’t watch them so I can’t say. I have to be honest.
