When clients walk into the showroom at Brown, Dana Brown wants them to feel as though they’re entering into her own home—welcomed, comfortable and part of the family.
That’s because design has always been a family affair for her. Back in high school when she first began dating Steve, his family was in the furniture business even then. She spent the next few decades building Brown alongside him, buying products for the showroom and helping designers source, price and purchase lines for their projects. Always on the lookout for inspiration, she attends High Point Market, scours trade journals, and constantly has an eye on the latest color or fabric trend. With new innovations in textiles, surfaces, wallpaper and furniture, she loves implementing her finds into the showroom floor, all while she tends to her role as president of the company.
