Your gift package also includes a $100 coupon for Paul's TV, one for World of Floors, and one for furniture. Once your offer to purchase a home is accepted one of our team members will sign you up and Julie will take it from there.

More about Julie

As a design consultant at Art Van Furniture, 14055 Hall Rd., Shelby Twp., MI.  My goal is to help you turn your new house into a home reflecting your personality.  In my 13+ year career I have assisted many clients transform their house into something they enjoy coming home to.  I am more than happy to help you achieve the same results.  

Items You'll Need for a Productive Furniture Experience!


  • Floor Plans - Room measurements along with current pieces you plan on keeping in the room.  Fireplace, windows sizes, and placement of heat ducts.
  • Carpet or Floor Samples
  • Paint Samples - If already painted
  • Drapery Fabrics
  • Pictures of furniture styles you appreciate or favor              
Where will the furniture be going?


  • Basement - Size of door opening and ceiling room. Is it a straight shot down stairs or is there a landing?
  • Bungalow - Are you looking to get a queen size mattress upstairs? If so a split foundation is needed.
  • Townhouse - Will the furniture be able to fit up the stairs?
  • Bedroom made to a Den - Door width, hall width, and ceiling height to be able to accommodate a sleeper sofa or desk.
How do you plan on using your room?


  • Reclining Furniture - Power vs. manual.
  • Dining Tables - Gathering height vs. dining.  Check height for kitchen counters and island to  select the proper height bar/counter stool.
