Michael Donnelly Interiors Sets You Up To Shop

It wasn’t that long ago that Michael Donnelly Interiors (MDI) set up shop in a pretty spectacular space on Hertel (see back story). At the time it looked as if the furniture design showroom had landed itself in not-to-be-outdone digs. Fast forward three plus years and the business has gone and outdone itself by moving into a dynamic stretch of Hertel that not only has heavy-hitting neighbors such as ‘room’, it has a sprawling showroom that incorporates line after line of furniture, bedding, lamps and design elements. Add the glowing bronze tin ceilings and the massive showroom windows and you’ve taken a design setting that was previously obscured from the eyes of passersby and posted a sign on the front that screams, “Check this out!”

Often times design showrooms can be intimidating, especially when you’re not sure what it is that you’re even looking for. MDI has cast aside the intimidation factor by offering customers the ability to roam around various showroom vignettes created to introduce buyers to the latest color, fabric and general interior style trends. It’s hard not to get drawn into each of the settings, and there are many in this 3200 sq.’ space (previous location was 1500 sq.’). A couple of the hit product lines that have been added are the bed linens and down products, as well as expanded lines of lamps, accessories and gifts. The super-sizing of MDI on Hertel has added greatly to making the commercial street a home decor hot spot.
