FRIENDS COME TOGETHER TO GIVE
YOUR HOME A PERSONALIZED TOUCH
When Traci Sansinena hired Natasha Noelle Wishart, an interior designer and remodeler, to help decorate and remodel her home a few years ago, little did they know at the time that they would become fast and furious friends and eventual co-owners of a furniture and design store in Eagle. They bonded over similar life stories and realized their styles meshed
as well. Shopping for Traci’s home, they struggled finding bold unique pieces and colorful furniture options that would fit perfectly with Traci’s style. This is when the two began discussing opening what is now Accent Home Furniture & Design.
Upon entering Accent Home Furniture & Design, it’s easy to see this is not your ordinary furniture box store with options aplenty in every color imaginable from something as small as an emerald-green vase to as large as a stunning teal headboard and everything in between. The store, which opened earlier this year, offers everything needed to furnish every room in the house. Traci and Natasha, both visionaries, are trying to take the guesswork out of design by arranging the store in a manner where one can go in and purchase an entire setting or can pick that one piece that finishes off a room perfectly. As they like to say, they offer “safe risky options” for every taste.
Relationships matter at Accent, with friendships coming first followed by business. It’s important to Traci and Natasha that people love what goes into their homes instead of making a fast sale. They get to know their customers and their styles, often finding
out where clients have shopped in the past, to better tailor a design to the individual. Natasha says, “We can do fifty shades of grey if that’s what the client wants, but we would love to show you what lifestyles can look like while being able to do your neutral tones.” Accent is not defined by one word, like eclectic, bohemian, chic, modern, or farmhouse.
They offer items for the home geared toward the customer’s lifestyle. So when asked which best describes their store, their answer was “all of the above.”
Accent’s custom items are made in the U.S., with other ready-made items being found from not only the U.S., but places such as Italy, India, and France as well. They have pieces already in stock if you need that item today, or you can customize a piece with their approximately one thousand fabric and leather options. It is important to Traci and Natasha that Accent represent quality, with many items having full warranties so the customer can feel confident in their purchases while also keeping it affordable. They don’t want all your budget going into one big item, with nothing being left for those all-important accessory pieces.
Accent Home Furniture & Design is a fullservice furniture store, offering design services
from their four in-house designers. They can even do 3-D renderings of designs, so that customers can better visualize how their homes will look. If you are currently building your dream home or are remodeling your current home, Accent is a must-stop for your home decor needs. And you can be sure that what you add to your home is excellently made
but is also affordable. As Natasha says, “Your home is our passion.”
Accent Home Furniture & Design is open Mondays through Saturdays, with talks of opening up on Sundays as well.
They are located at 3130 E. State St, suite 135 in Eagle.
Traci and Natasha have been thrilled with the support from Eagle and the other Eagle businesses and are so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community.
