the best in local interior design
"Refined Haystack has been an incredible resource for us as we design and furnish our new home! We felt very overwhelmed by the decision making involved, it was also important to us that our home, reflected our style. The site offers so much helpful information about great local stores, including the price range of their products and comments from designers who shop at them. We've never worked with an interior designer before, and honestly feel like we found the perfect person through Refined Haystack...it saved us, thank you!"
