Grow Your Design Business with Bellacor Professional

Every single day, Bellacor Professional makes jobs and projects easier for designers all over the United States. Of course, our special trade pricing helps. Still, we like to think our product knowledge and personal touch help a little too. A membership with Bellacor Professional is like having your own extra assistant.

But don't take my word for it. Just ask Lisa Proli Rourke, who has been working with Bellacor Professional since 2005. Lisa runs her own company, Id3 Designs, and supplies many of her jobs through Bellacor Professional.

"(Bellacor Professional Manager) Josie (Lowry) is my original contact at Bellacor and continues to impress me with her vast knowledge of lighting products," Lisa said. "She is always willing to source items that may be available in an alternate size or finish than what is shown on the website."

As Lisa's career has evolved from commercial interior design to freelance residential design and onto ownership of a design business, she noticed that Bellacor Professional has also evolved to better suit her needs at every step.

"I have been impressed with the changes they have made to their site to better facilitate designers," said the pro of almost 20 years. "I especially like that I can review past orders along with images of products I have purchased."

Lisa's store is at the foot of Okemo Ski Mountain in Ludlow, Vermont, so her focus has become design for vacation homes in the area. She said her style has changed with the design world, but right now rustic modern is a popular look that just happens to work well in her region. Bellacor has a huge selection of modern rustic pieces to fit her project needs.

"What I like best about rustic modern design is that it allows for the warmth of natural materials like stone and wood but also incorporates a more contemporary, clean line aesthetic and color palette," she said. "I have primarily purchased light fixtures from Bellacor, but they have really been stepping it up adding everything from furniture to bedding. The site has an incredible range of products which really helps the average homeowner or the seasoned designer move their project from “ho hum” to “wow!”

Bellacor's selection makes sourcing one of the more fun aspects of her job. She loves designs from Uttermost, Hinkley, Hudson Valley and Troy.

"I heart Visual Comfort - their finish options and high quality is always impressive," Lisa said. "They are able to take traditional ideas and twist them slightly so they are more current." 

But Lisa isn't the only one who loves working with Bellacor Professional. Laura Parson, a designer with 15 years of experience, always comes back for what she calls "impeccable" customer service as well as the website experience she enjoys each time she visits.

"The website is very inspirational & easy to maneuver through," Laura said. "I love that you can shop by brand or style. It's very user friendly."

Designers like Lisa and Laura find that by partnering with Bellacor Professional, they are able to make every project a little easier, and save money along the way.
