Our October 2023 feature designer hits a little closer to home for a variety of reasons. Each year, Mor Furniture partners with St. Jude to stage homes for their dream home raffle events. Mor Furniture’s very own Eric Fontes custom-designed every inch of the space for the Bakersfield Dream home and we could not be more pleased and proud of the end-result.
Before we get into the design itself, here’s a little bit about Eric. You may not know, but here at Mor, we have incredibly talented team members who are responsible for the look and feel of all our showrooms known as the In-Store Display team. We’re very fortunate to have someone like Eric with that group. After starting in sales over 8 years ago, Eric was quickly recognized for his keen eye for design and detail. As a furniture industry veteran, he’d held previous roles where he was offering design services to clients and does real estate staging. For his in-store display role, Eric is given corporate direction and then can play up his strengths on what will work best for our customers. He says function is always at the forefront along with the overall look of the furniture.
