Bond Furniture is such a familiar part of Loveland’s history—having been in town for 60 years—you might think you already know this longtime local staple. After all, you can see some of Bond’s gorgeous furniture and unique home decor right through their front window. But if you haven’t opened their door and gone inside lately, you might be surprised at all that’s new … everything you can’t see from the street.
The first clue? Not long ago, the store changed its name to Bond Furniture and Design. While it’s still the perfect place to find full home furnishings, they now feature a pair of skilled design professionals, too.
Heather Walker, an interior designer who’s been furnishing and decorating homes around the area for more than 25 years, has been with Bond for almost 4 years—she gave us the inside scoop about what the store really has to offer, as well as what continues to surprise people.
Bond Furniture and Design announced the debut of their fully redesigned website. Bond Furniture and Design is a furniture showplace and design studio located in Loveland, Ohio. Just like their newly remodeled showroom, the new website offers visitors a more contemporary look, broader selection and more diversity. The site reveals vibrant colors, simple navigation and an overall streamlined design. The site comprises numerous “Story-Telling” images that serve as portals to access essential information. The user-friendly interface makes it simple for visitors to see what Bond Furniture and Design represents and serves to empower customers to consider new ideas, visions and concepts.
Now under new management, the team at Bond Furniture and Design set their initial focus on resurrecting the 8,000 square foot showroom into a true showplace of beauty, design and inspiration. From there the goal was to create an online presence that portrayed their selection of furnishings and design talents while inviting the viewer to visit their ever-evolving Bond Furniture and Design showroom.
“We want our website to reflect the pages of a design catalog: brimming with ideas, imagination and inspiration. The website also needs to serve as an open invitation to come visit our Bond Furniture and Design Showroom,” stated Carol Lahke, Co-Owner, Interior Designer and Certified Organizationalist, “We believe we have accomplished all our desires and are excited to share our new digital space. What a way to start the New Year.”
Although Bond Furniture and Design has existed in the Loveland community since the 1900s, Bond underwent a rebranding in December 2018! The launch was successful as the “Ladies of Bond” (Carol Lahke and Angie Suess) had the goal of enhancing the showroom, making it more design-oriented.
Carol has an innate eye for detail and space, previously working as an independent design consultant for local art galleries, corporate and residential clients. On the other hand, Angie’s work is heavily inspired by her study abroad experience in Italy. Angie’s aesthetic is classical with a flare, giving her designs a timeless, yet modern feel. They wanted to showroom to be inspirational and illuminating, transporting oneself into the design of their dream free of inhibitions. The custom design desk combined with the artistic talents of the design team guarantee a one-of-a-kind space, representative of the style and flare of each individual client. According to Carol, “We want to showcase high-end, well known brands that represent quality and character while offering a personal design aspect unparalleled in the region.” Together, Carol and Angie are ‘designing” the new Bond Furniture and Design!
