The Black Goose Design History

Built in the early 1900's, The Black Goose Design contains the outlines of the once bustling early Utah steel history. Close your eyes and imagine a brick building in the early 1900s that was originally home to the Sharon Steel Corporation, a smelter company, where two safes and a machine gun guarded a train that brought and transferred cash payrolls. Today, that building houses The Black Goose Design, a beautiful building with lush ivy and home to one of the Salt Lake area’s most charming interior design firms and furniture showrooms.

Nancy Long, a woman with an entrepreneurial spirit and seasoned retail experience, purchased the building in 1985. As founder of Gardner Village, located just a half mile west, Nancy opened Country Furniture & Gifts (now called CF Home) in the old Gardner flour mill in 1980 and that became the beginning of Gardner Village. The Black Goose Design was opened after requests from customers who wanted a wider selection of home decor than Country Furniture could provide and meet their needs with the help of interior designers. Today, The Black Goose Design and Gardner Village are owned and operated by two of Nancy's children, Joe Long and Angie Gerdes, who are carrying out the legacy of their mother. As a brother/sister team, their business philosophies are much the same as their mother’s: to offer a unique, broad selection of quality home furnishing and décor combined with outstanding full service design.
