You’re in for a rare treat! We’re taking you on a behind-the-scenes tour of one of our favorite furniture brands — Wesley Hall. Remain seated, please. Permanecer sentados, por favor.
Okay, so it isn’t THAT kind of ride, but you're in for a thrill if you appreciate hand-crafted quality and made-in-America tradition.
Members of our team at The Black Goose Design were lucky enough to visit the Wesley Hall factory in Hickory, NC, recently, and we’re sharing just a few of the MANY highlights.
Welcome to Wesley Hall!
If you know quality furniture, you know the name. Wesley Hall has been a family-owned business for generations (currently in their fifth generation making high-end upholstered products), crafting top-of-the-line sofas, ottomans, beds, bar/dining options, sectionals and chairs. They’re a locally-owned business that always makes quality the top priority!
This made-in-the-US furniture keeps your wellbeing in the forefront of all it does. From springs made from recycled goods and coated with organic, lead-free materials to toxin-free, fire-retardant materials, you can expect the best! Of course, the way our Wesley Hall pieces sell, we already know you’re a fan. Here’s a client favorite, the Hartwell Chair.
And here’s what the same chair model looks like in the process of being hand crafted.
Step by Step
So much goes into every Wesley Hall piece produced. From the rolls and rolls of fabric to the many patterns to numerous artisans, it really is an impressive process with many moving parts and contributors.
This "Our Story" quick flick describes the process best. In a nut shell…
- Hand Tied
“Generations of tradition. Classic made current. We are Wesley Hall.”
Eight-Way What, Now?
Clearly, attention to detail is in every step of the time-intensive process. Of course, a little elbow grease is also involved. Have you ever heard of an eight-way hand tie? Wesley Hall sofas and sectionals are actually suspended so the springs can be tied eight ways, giving you a universal sit, no matter where your fav spot happens to be. This added (and BIG!) step keeps your springs in place so you won’t find yourself with a pit or springs that move around on you. Who knew an eight-way tie finish could be the ideal outcome? (See it in action here.)
Okay, so this question is a bit redundant at this point, but these gorgeous chairs should seal the deal. (If nothing else, it will delight our fellow furniture nerds!) See the way the intricate pattern lines up from section to section? That's what hand-engineered, hand-cut, hand-sewn quality gets you. Pretty cool, right?
The Tour Continues
We’ve done business with Wesley Hall for decades, but we still felt like kids in a candy store seeing where the magic behind some of our favorite furniture happens. We hope this back-stage look at your beloved pieces leaves you appreciating all that goes into them even more (if that’s possible). Now that you've seen the factory tour, take a virtual showroom tour here to see the latest and greatest from Wesley Hall. When you find your next obsession, give us a call and we'll see that it gets to you. Happy touring!

What happens when a group of driven, talented, smart women put their minds to something? Magic! The House That SHE Built is our proof!
What started out as an empty lot is transforming into a show-stopping home of one lucky family’s dreams in the Oakwood Homes Wander Community in Saratoga Springs, Utah.
It’s a project bringing together talented female professionals to complete every stage of the home-building process, from the moment the first plans were drafted to the day the last landscaping touch is completed.
On this fab female team — our very own Randi Smith and Denise Johnson from The Black Goose Design!
“I have always loved construction and design,” Randi shared. “It’s in the fiber of who I am. I love being able to use my experience and talents to help others design their dream homes.”
“I’ve been in the field of design for over 20 years and have worked on every aspect of building a house,” Denise added. “But being a part of this particular project is extra special. I’m so proud of the work everyone is doing and the hearts behind that work!”
The House That SHE Built truly puts the heart in the art of homebuilding. The proceeds from the sale of this beautiful two-story home will continue to create opportunities for women, with support going to women-run businesses and charities, as well as a scholarship program.
“The scholarships will account for 60% of the total prof and will be awarded to women pursuing construction management related degrees and trade school programs.” –UtahPWB.com
Such skilled trades as excavation, plumbing, and engineering (to name just a few) are often thought of as “a man’s world.” Of course, we know this to be false. Women are key players in every aspect of home building, but they ARE underrepresented. The House That SHE Built hopes to change that by creating more opportunities for females and shining a brighter light on these in-demand careers.
Plus, women bring unique and valuable perspective to home design, simply based on the fact that they can often see a home’s functionality and needs differently than their male counterparts.
“The home design is centered on functionality for a family, from a woman’s unique perspective. The design does an excellent job of providing for the individual needs of the family by incorporating elements such as a children’s play area downstairs and a serene master retreat, while also including opportunities for the family to gather together and create memories.” –UtahPWB.com
SHE is skilled. SHE is capable. SHE deserves every opportunity to share her gifts with the world as SHE makes it a better place. Nothing against the talented, hardworking fellas out there. We need them! They, of course, bring much to the table, too. This project is just a shining reminder that there’s room and need for all kinds, backgrounds, experiences, and genders in this (and every!) field!
TAKE A TOUR
Save the date! The House That SHE Built will be in the 2021 Utah Valley Parade of Homes. It’s your opportunity to see the grand unveiling and the stunning results of Randi and Denise’s labor of love. With the amount of time, effort, thought, determination, strength, and creativity we know went into every single stage of the home’s development, we know you’re in for an inspiring treat! In the meantime, you can learn more about this noteworthy endeavor on the Utah Professional Women in Building website.
YOU MAKE US PROUD
We’re so honored that The Black Goose Design was invited to be a part of this memorable experience. Our team beams with pride as we observe the work Denise and Randi are doing with the other brilliant minds on this project. And we aren’t the only ones recognizing their dedicated contributions. They were just featured on The House That SHE Built Instagram account (which is totally worth following, BTW!). See Denise’s spotlight here and click here to read what Randi had to say.
The House That SHE Built is about more than building a home. It’s about building up women in the field of construction, where they’re currently severely underrepresented. Show your support through a financial contribution or submit a quick note on their website if you wish to be a part of it all
“We are always looking to add to our team and network of contributors for The House That SHE Built!” –UtahPWB.com
Our hardhats are off to all who are involved with The House That SHE Built. We can’t wait to see the end product at the Utah Valley Parade of Home this May 2021. We hope to see you there!

Sure, Valentine's Day is near, but it's spring design trends that have the hearts in our eyes. BEAUTIFUL new looks are coming to The Black Goose Design. From fresh trends and dreamy textiles to chic new furniture styles and design motifs, now’s a great time to breathe some new life into your space. All of the eye candy you’re about to see will be available at The Black Goose Design in the coming weeks, with some of it already in. Woot! Enjoy this look at styles we're crushing on right now.
ROLLING IN THE DEEP
Gone are the days of white on white on white. We're happy to see the pendulum swinging in the opposite direction, introducing striking contrast with dark statement pieces like these show stoppers from Gabby:
It's official, we're "leg" people. How can anyone not be with shapely gams like the ones on this chic console?
Hmmm... Maybe we're leg AND feet people. After all, this cabinet's cute feet are impossible to resist.
While the previous pieces are arriving in the weeks ahead (something awesome to look forward to!), we just got this attractive coffee table in. Yay! It's a must-see. Stop by our showroom and pay it a visit. You'll be glad you did.
Our friends at Noir are also embracing this divine design trend. The dark finish on this classic sideboard creates a vibe we certainly aren't mad at. ;)
TREAT YOURSELF TO TEXTURE
Who says texture has to come exclusively from textiiles, flooring, and wall treatments? These pieces from Hooker Furniture give us all the feels. The modern design is taken to the next level by the linen finish. And the warm neutral color means these pieces will complement a number of colors and design preferences.
Whether you’re selecting fabric for a new sofa or chair or you simply want the refreshing pop new pillows provide, these are some of the 2021 textile trends to note:
Wesley Hall takes those straight lines for a curve with these unique geometric prints:
Lee Industries is also embracing geometric gold with these new prints:
We're really feeling this spring fling now, thanks to these outdoor-inspired works of art by Wesley Hall. Which upholstery swatch is calling your name?
TAKE A SEAT
You’re going to want to sit down for this one. Just look at these NEW beauties by Welsey Hall! They make any excuse to sit impossible to resist.
Meet the Milbrook (above) and his curvey counterpart, Tulip (below). They'll both be in our showroom very soon.
Oh my… SO MANY good things to look forward to as the seasons change. Which looks are you loving? Flag your favorites and come see us at The Black Goose Design soon to start your spring refresh.

Utah might be up to its knees in snow at the moment, but spring is very much on our minds at The Black Goose Design. Our buyers recently attended the Las Vegas Market, where the trade show floor was alive with florals, color, clean lines, warm lighting, and more! Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the sweet things coming your way soon!
SOFT FLORALS & COLOR
While we appreciate clean lines and the minimalist approach to design, we can’t help but swoon when a good floral crosses our paths. You bet we’ll carry these beauties in the coming months.
The world of textiles was a vibrant mix of color and patterns, opening up many creative doors for your home!
TREND TIP: Expect to see more color and bold blooms as the temps rise.
CLEAN LINES & MONOCHROME
In design, every yin has its yang. In contrast to the color and blooms, we saw many clean and simple, yet eye-catching and unique accessories.
Along with the geometric element, the monochrome contrast of black and white was well represented.
DESIGN TIP: Design is never all-or-nothing. Soft florals and pops of color can blend beautifully with geometric shapes and a primarily monochromatic approach. The trick is placement and ratios. If you’re a fan of both styles but aren’t quite sure how to proceed, let us know. We’ll happily help you find your sweet spot.
Nothing says “inviting” quite like the right lighting.
Plus, a new light fixture is an easy and relatively affordable way to breathe new life into a room. If lighting is on your list, you’re going to love the looks debuting at market.
LIGHTING TIP: We recommend the lighting be consistent throughout your home. A go-to bulb choice is soft white at a temperature of 2700-3000k.
IT’S A SPRING THING
Ready to welcome the fresh feel of spring in your home? Visit our store in the coming weeks and be the first to get the latest and greatest market releases.

Customization Qualities: From sleek leather to fashionable fabric, there are numerous ways to customize this king.
Features to Fancy: Its height makes it the star of any room it graces, and the buttons along the lower back (front side) are cute as a... well, you know where we're going with this.

“It’s a wonderful building! I drove by it nearly every day, and each time I’d pass, it would catch my eye. Then, one day, it came up for sale! I said to my husband, ‘We’ve got to buy it!’ He asked what for and I told him we’d think of something…”
And think of something, she did! This is how Nancy Long, The Black Goose Design and Gardner Village founder, describes her introduction to what is now our gorgeous home, furniture showroom and interior design business.
It’s a building rich with Utah history and loads of unique personality. Join us on this behind-the-scenes tour. We’ll go through areas not typically open to the public and discover the rich history behind our showroom home.
THE BUILDING HISTORY
Let’s kick this trip back in time off with a look at this building’s story:
- This gorgeous space was built in the early 1900s.
- Nancy Long purchased it in 1985.
- Before The Black Goose Design called it home, this building was the Sharon Steel Smelter mine office building, a rec center, a doctor’s office, and a seamstress shop/drapery workroom.
THEY DON’T MAKE ‘EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE
Step foot inside The Black Goose Design, and you know you’ve arrived at a special place. At your feet, you’ll likely see original hardwood flooring, as well as a peek at its rec center past.
Along the walls, you can’t help but notice the antique radiators, which are still used to heat the building.
Around nearly every turn, you’ll see signs of the antique architecture:
- gorgeous windows overhead
- a stylish stairwell running up the building’s center
- lightswitch plates that stand out from today’s flat crowd
- layers of personality peeking through in a spot where the wallpaper has fallen off the wall
- thick brick walls…
… and the list goes on! It really is a treat to experience.
AN UNSUAL FEATURE & A COLORFUL PAST
Of course, a feature that often catches the most attention are the large walk-in safes on both the main and upper levels.
Today, they house fabric swatches and clearance items, but they served a much more intense purpose when this building was the Sharon Steel Smelter office building. They held large sums of money for the mining company, including solid gold used in payroll.
At that point in history, a train ran directly behind the building and would stop to make high-dollar cash deliveries. This was before the days of armored cars, so armed guards would sit in these very upstairs windows, machine guns in hand, guarding the deliveries against theft. Crazy stuff to imagine today!
BEHIND THE SCENES
The Black Goose Design recently got a new front door. As the entryway was being remodeled, those who've worked here came by and signed their name on the wall around the door frame before the new casing went up. It's like our way of adding a piece of history to this already-interesting building's story!
If you look closely, you might see "Joe Long" written across the top of the door before the gorgeous new frame (pictured below) went in. Others followed suit, adding their names all around the door. Very cool!
Have you ever looked around Midvale and noticed a lack of trees? Well, maybe not a lack of trees, per se, but a lack of TALL trees. There’s a reason for this.
“Some 20-25 years ago, Midvale did a cleanup, saying the ground was contaminated and needed to be removed,” Angie Gerdes, Nancy Long’s daughter and Gardner Village co-owner, recalls. “Much of Midvale was given the choice to either have their trees removed at no cost or keep their trees, knowing that if they were to die, the expense of the removal would fall to the property owner. Nearly everyone allowed the city to remove the trees, but Mom opted to keep our trees. It paid off. The trees lived. Today, they stand beautifully above The Black Goose Deisgn, adding to the building’s unique beauty.”
The exterior is also known for its ivy abundance.
Between the towering trees and the green coating its brick walls, The Black Goose Design looks a bit like a cottage tucked away in the woods. Well… except for the fact that it sits right on the west end of Midvale, but you get the fairytale vision we like to see.
FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
The building may look like the stuff of fairytales, but The Black Goose Design's story sure doesn't have a fairytale beginning. Let’s pick up where Nancy Long left off in 1985. She and her husband had just purchased the building. Though, her husband still wasn’t entirely convinced of the decision.
“As we worked on renovating the space, my husband kept asking me what we were going to do with the building. ‘Make it a store,’ I’d tell him. ‘You already have a store,’ he’d reply. But I saw this store serving a different purpose than Country Furniture [now CF Home at Gardner Village]. It would be a higher-end furniture store.”
Nancy went ahead with her dream, attending a furniture market and buying as much as she could with her less-than-impressive credit rating at the time and a net-30 payback arrangement.
“The pressure was on. I had just one month to sell this furniture in order to make the payment, so I called my daughter Stacy in Wyoming and put her to work in the store. We filled the building with what we little we were able to purchase at market. I even brought in some of my own furniture to make it look less bare. To advertise our grand opening, we opted for a mailer, using our Country Furniture mailing list. On grand opening day, we had two furniture reps and our small staff ready to welcome our new customers... only they never came. Turns out the post office had failed to mail our flyers. I was so mad that I couldn't even get mad at that point. I just knew we HAD TO move this furniture, so I made a quick flyer and had the employees at Country Furniture put it in all the bags. I told them they had to get the word out. And that’s just what they did. We did $50,000 in business that first month and have been a success ever since.”
Talk about a stressful foot to start on. We admire Nancy Long and her vision. She knew she was on to something as soon as she saw the sale sign in front of this remarkable space, and she followed that gut instinct through, even though the deck seemed stacked against her. How happy we are she did, too. This space with all its character and its layers of history is the ideal backdrop for The Black Goose Design. Stop by anytime to take a look around for yourself. We'd love to meet you. Every customer who visits and client we serve adds to the rich tapestry that makes us who we are today!

25 years! Talk about a milestone! It’s how long Denise Johnson has been with the Gardner Mill Company stores. It’s also what makes Denise the employee who has been with our company the longest. That can only mean one thing—time for a party!
Friends from The Black Goose Design and Gardner Village gathered together to celebrate Denise.
Denise with Gardner Village co-owner, Angie Gerdes.
Little tributes to Denise were woven throughout, including plenty of cheese (her fav food!) and a blue/coastal decor vibe, because this girl LOVES the water.
Denise’s Gardner Mill story began when she was just 16 when she was hired by Gardner Village founder, Nancy Long.
“At that time, there was no Village,” Denise recalls. “It was just one store, Country Furniture. And the idea of working there sure beat delivering pizzas, so I left my Pizza Hut job and started this incredible journey!”
Country Furniture wasn’t Denise’s only place of employment before joining us at The Black Goose Design. In fact, she’s worked at a total of 15 different stores in Gardner Mill Company stores over the years. In 2011, she started her full-time design position with us here at The Black Goose Design.
“I was on the store-front side of things for many years, where I did the merchandising and displays and customer service and management and buying, but my vision has always been more big picture. I’m grateful for all of the experiences I’ve had that have helped get me where I am now. I know each thing I've done and learned have helped prepare me for what I do now. I have a broader perspective and it all relates to how well I’m able to do my job.”
A LOOK AT DENISE’S INTERIOR DESIGN WORK
And what a fine job Denise does! Here are just a few of her recent projects:
A HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Working with the same company for a quarter century is no small thing. No wonder Denise feels extremely close to her coworkers.
“All of the relationships I’ve cultivated over the years… These are my people! When you spend this much time with others, they become your family.”
25 years with this fine woman? No wonder a celebration was in order. We have much to be grateful for. Not only is Denise amazing at what she does, she’s also a wonderful human being. Having her in our family is a gift. Congratulations on your milestone, Denise! Thanks so much for all you've done over the years!

Today we will be giving you some gorgeous designer inspiration on how to dress up and refresh your walls with amazing artwork! Artwork has the tremendous ability to transform a space and infuse it with a pop-of-personality! Those beautiful pictures we hang on our walls add stylish finesse within our homes and are a crucial detail to completing a well-designed room.
Be innovative when displaying your beloved art work. Art does not always necessarily have to be hung on a wall. Layering gorgeous art atop a mantel, a shelf or a piece of furniture always contributes unexpected interest. Displaying artwork in a unique way is always visually stunning and adds a "surprise" element in a room.
The walls of your home tell a story about the people who live in it, so make it as personal as you can. We adore the idea of mixing and matching your favorite pieces of art in a collage-style display. This type of display feels effortless and eclectic, and it also allows flexibility to add even more pieces to your personal art collection in time. Grouping art together is visually expressive and powerful.
Eye-catching wall prints, above this amazing console piece, create a stunning focal point. We love the bits of blue and grey tones throughout this room. Utilizing these subdued colors in the entire room, especially within the artwork, give such a tranquil feeling.
Artwork can capture the essence of your personal design style. A large amount of wall space within the home is dedicated to displaying visual images that you adore, so make the best use of that prime real estate. Graphic prints and pen and ink drawings always peek a visual interest with chic style. Muted coloring with simple shapes also can add great interest not only in the subject matter but in the amazing quality of the art piece itself!
Clustering unique sketches and paintings together can visually make a large impact within a space. We feel selecting artwork for your home is a very personal process. Choosing art pieces that you truly adore on your walls is important so display something you love! These sketched and watercolor art pieces are so elegant grouped together. Layering artwork also gives great depth and dimension. Every unique personal piece of art gives this room a refined and collected feel.
As designers, we often are asked how to fill large wall spaces within the home. Well, there is no better way to make a dramatic design statement than with a substantial art piece. Showcasing one visually impactful piece on a large wall or area in your home will add designer flair with sophisticated simplicity.
Large art pieces contribute generous proportion bringing scale and balance to spacious rooms. Expansive spaces call for a heavier visual weight when it comes to artwork so select art pieces that are adequate sizes. Creating balance is key for making a room feel complete and grounded.
Grouping these simplistic art pieces together can make a large impact in a room. These elegant prints flow perfectly in this space and complement the beautiful bedding. Muted coloring will give a stylish and sleek presence when combining multiple art pieces together.
Art is more than just hanging a picture on a wall. It is a way of expressing your design style and surrounding yourself in an atmosphere that you love to be in. Our designer showroom located in Midvale, Utah is filled with gorgeous unique artwork that is sure to suit any style. Our interior designers are always delighted to suggest art pieces that will complement your space perfectly.

You are in for a interior design treat today! Lee Industries, a high-quality upholstery company that we absolutely adore and carry, has given us an exclusive look at their brand new fabric and furniture design trends for this year! You will be the first to see this incredible line of amazing fabrics and latest in upholstery trends here on our blog.
The Black Goose Design carries the finest in furniture, especially when it comes to upholstery. Lee Industries produces extremely high-quality pieces made with precision craftsmanship. Every upholstered piece is proudly constructed in the USA, specifically in North Carolina! Each piece of furniture is crafted by skilled associates all by hand, ensuring a high standard of quality. Did you know 98% of Lee's components that go into their products are supplied domestically? Being eco-friendly is extremely important to Lee. By sourcing materials from local suppliers, this results in reduced transportation costs, which is all around better for the environment. Lee Industries had a fantastic spring furniture market, and we are thrilled to be showing these fresh new textiles.
We feel honored to have had a visit from the very talented Jan Whitson. She is the lead fabric designer and buyer for Lee Industries. Jan has been in the design industry for over 25 years. With a degree in textiles, her knowledge and expertise about creating new textile designs is astonishing.
Jan created original fabric designs specially for Lee Industries, and they are nothing short of stunning! Her vision for a few fabrics came from organic, nature-inspired elements. She focused on fluidity and movement within the textiles, and her final products are proudly welcomed into Lee's new spring line. Her inspirations started from agate rock, ash trees, an african mud cloth and tantalizing textures. The fabrication of these fabulous fabrics all came together wonderfully!
This gorgeous print was actually inspired from a lily pad. Bold larger-scaled prints always look stellar on upholstered accent chairs. Utilizing a large-sized print such as this one delivers a punch of personality and visual interest.
This extraordinary textile mimics the look of aspen trees and is an unbelievable work of art!
This faux paux (meaning "fake bark") pattern resembles the natural beauty of a tree trunk. Organic elements influenced a large part of this year's market at Lee. Every print turned out phenomenal.
The movement in this fabric is breathtaking. Dramatic patterns are a must for a well-designed room, and this particular fabric truly brought a "wow" factor to the 2019 spring line!
An eye-grabbing geometric with a subtle texture was inspired from an African mud cloth design. We adore the primitive simplicity of this remarkable fabric.
Delicate watercolor floral prints are always a designer favorite! These prints are soft, feminine and are a great take on a modern, chic floral look.
Lee has incredible fabrics that are also super durable. These types of fabrics are a perfect match for busy homes that take a lot of wear and tear! Crypton fabrics are serious performance fabrics that will not only look beautiful but will give you longevity for your upholstery. These fabrics have an impressive soft hand or "feel" and are extremely comfortable. We featured an entire blog post specifically on crypton fabric, and be sure to revisit that post here to learn more!
Lee has also created mind-boggling indoor and outdoor endurance fabrics that can resist any spill. The unique moisture barrier allows spills to bead up on top of the fabric which helps to avoid seepage into your upholstery. A simple blot and wipe will have your sofa or chair looking brand new in no time! Lee has state-of-the-art textiles that can withstand the true test of "life!" Combining multiple fibers such as linen, wool and soft cotton produce exceptional fabrics that encompass both beauty and durability.
The Black Goose Design is ecstatic to have had a wonderful business partnership with Lee Industries for many years. The high-quality and craftsmanship that goes into every custom upholstered piece is amazing! As designers, it is our goal to always educate and share the very best in furniture that the design industry has to offer to our clients. Partner with one of our talented designers to customize any high-quality upholstered piece from Lee Industries today. With hundreds of extraordinary, beautiful fabrics to select from, our expert interior designers are happy to help guide you in creating an ideal living space that suits your personal style.

The Black Goose Design proudly carries Wesley Hall and is delighted to work with them to bring you the very latest in interior design textiles and upholstery. This spring market was a sensational success with stunning new fabrics and chic upholstery styles galore!
Zack Taylor, the president of Wesley Hall, has given us an exclusive showing of stunning new fabrics that have been introduced for this year. Mr. Taylor is an expert on furniture and fabric construction creating the perfect combination of experience to grow with the Wesley Hall brand.

The talented designers at The Black Goose Design are revealing the most sought after accessory item in the design world, the Fiddle Leaf Fig! We absolutely adore this perfect plant not only for its stunning simplicity, but its greenery can make a big design impact in any space. This lucious leafy green plant contributes high-style design when it comes to incorporating an organic feel into your home.
The Fiddle Leaf Fig has such a sense of whimsy and individuality about it and is a striking plant that can be used to create height, fullness and texture. Tucking this terrific little tree beside a chair or sofa will help with establishing height if perhaps a few extra inches are needed in your space. Large leaves contribute fabulous fullness without "overdoing it" and is a great scuplted accessory piece which adds interest.
Incorporating organic texture into any space is always highly recommended by our designers, and adding in greenery instantly brings life and vitality into a space! Now here comes the big question when it comes to selecting the right Fiddle Leaf Fig for you. Do you want the real deal or a close imitation? We have a few helpful tips that may assist you in that choice.
A live Fiddle Leaf Fig requires a little more tender loving care and perhaps a bit of a green thumb! They tend to be a little temperamental; but if taken care of correctly, you will have a gorgeous green tree to showcase in your home for years to come. Be sure to do the proper research on caring for your new little tree!
- Always be sure to check the water temperature. Figs are not fond of cold water, watering with more lukewarm water is ideal. Also maintain a regular water schedule and be careful not to overwater your tree.
- Ensure proper lighting for your tree, placement and rotation are key!
- Wipe down leaves. This allows your fig tree to soak up all of the sun's nutrients. This is also how these little darlings breathe!
- Keep close watch on the roots. As your tree grows, you will need to repot it if you start to see the roots inching their way out of the bottom.
*imitation Fiddle Leaf Fig
If just sitting back and enjoying this little beauty of a tree, a close imitation may suit you and your lifestyle a bit better. Our showroom floor located in Midvale, Utah is filled with these fabulous imitation Fiddle Leaf Figs, and they look so real it is difficult to tell a difference! We admire each little tree so much that yes, in fact, we do give them names. It is the proper thing to do! Featured in the following photo is a real Fiddle Leaf Fig whose name is Stuwart Call. He is such a handsome fellow and accents this room so perfectly don't you think?!
*Real Fiddle Leaf Fig
Whether your selection may be the real deal or a beautiful imitation, you cannot make an incorrect choice when it comes to incorporating a Fiddle Leaf Fig into your home! Adding just a hint of organic texture into your space will bring such liveliness and vigor when placed in your space. Make a design statement with the must have accessory of the design industry. Our designers are always happy to assist you when selecting the perfect accessory for your home. Oh, and don't forget, to name your new fabulous fig!

At The Black Goose Design we are completely mad about all things plaid! If you are looking for the perfect accent print to add a major pop-of-personality to your space plaid is the answer.
Incorporate the classic print of plaid into your home, it is a simple way to showcase design-savvy style! Plaid has always been such a timeless classic and our talented designers are ecstatic to share some of their favorite plaid accents.
A larger scale windowpane plaid suits the look of these transitional styled chairs. Mix up hints of plaid on a sleek chair, throw blankets or smaller ottomans to create visual interest.
Plaid prints are extraordinary in texture and pattern, think timeless Ralph Lauren designer styling but with a modern twist. Apply playful plaids on transitional or modern pieces to create a refreshed look.
Plaid pillows are always perfection! If you are craving this classic pattern but want just a hint within your space, try mixing this pleasing pattern in your decor with small accents.
Often times flooring gets overlooked as a great place to include pattern in your space. This stylish tuftex carpet is an ultra-chic way to blend the enduring classic look of plaid.
Technically speaking buffalo check is not your classic plaid, but as designers we feel the need to include this popluar print. A subdued grey color in a sweet buffalo check pattern is peaceful perfection on this chair.
Another great way to capture pleasing plaids is to select this pattern within the same color family. This still adds interest yet keeps a monochromatic feel without overwhelming the space. "Tying" in similar coloring throughout your room will allow for all your pieces to flow together with ease.
The possibilties of incorporating plaids are endless! Bottom line, have fun with this pretty pattern and make it all your own within your space.

The key to taming those amazing animal prints is by incorporating just a touch of the exotic pattern, perhaps in your throw pillows or layering with a rug. This will add a hint of glam to your overall look without letting the space to seem too overwhelming with bold patterns.
Even a simple faux fur throw can complement your space. Faux fur gives just enough texture for interest yet is still inviting and cozy. Throw pillows are also a great accessory to use when mixing in this neccessary element. Plush pillows scattered throughout a room are an ideal way to make a beautiful, textured impact.
Dramatic design statments can also come in smaller sophisticated pieces! A pair of luscious zebra printed ottomans are versatile and functional items that can easily be integrated into any space. A pair of petite faux fur stools are a wonderful way to also lend additional seating when needed.
Rich lavish leather is a classic, timless texture! Comfortable, customized leather accent chairs, tufted ottomans or a stunning sofa can contribute a tremendous amount of texture, adding a gorgeous enduring element to your space.
Our talented designers at The Black Goose Design are happy to assist you in finding your love for gorgeous texture, a pop-of-pattern and amazing animal-inspired design! Our unique throw pillows, ravishing rugs and rich leather pieces will grace your home with incredible style.
