Green Couch Interior Design San Francisco Expands Services, Launches Enhanced Website

San Francisco Bay Area-based interior design team creates ‘Approachable Elegance' to reflect lifestyles.

San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 04, 2011

Jeff and Tray Schlarb, owners of Green Couch, a San Francisco interior design company, announced today the expansion of their design services and the launch of their enhanced website. While many Bay Area homeowners are adopting a more holistic, long-term approach to décor and interior design, Green Couch's knowledge of the design world and personalized style results in an approachable, lively aesthetic. The company's additional services and examples of recent projects are now available at their website,

“Our passion for design includes understanding our clients' lifestyles and bringing the latest design trends from around the world to their homes in an authentic way,” said Jeff Schlarb. “We feel that we have an intrinsic understanding of the Bay Area lifestyle as we love living here ourselves. Our goal is to imbue each client's home with creative, compelling and unique attributes of life here while reflecting their individual character and providing an approachable elegance to each space.”

The Green Couch design team draws upon its relationships with artists and galleries, architects and furniture designers while reflecting a genuine appreciation for interior spaces created for living. With a recently revamped Fort Mason and a full renovation of a four-bedroom home on Washington Street in Pacific Heights underway, family-owned Green Couch draws upon Jeff and Tray's knowledge of the Bay Area to support the individualized lifestyles of their clientele and resulting designs. Both Jeff and Tray rely upon the experience garnered from their own backyard when actualizing the ideas surrounding what clients' desire in their own designs.

The company's resulting designs are as diversified as the Bay Area itself. From single entrepreneurs to families with young children, Green Couch has the capacity to create stunning designs suited to the lifestyles of all who live within the homes they touch. While one client may request assistance with furniture selection, another may also need color consulting, curatorial assistance and or management of a remodeling project.

Jeff says that he and his team most enjoy creating spaces that reflect the personality and uniqueness of the people who live within them. He touts the company's approachable style and his fun and sharp design team for creating encompassing, beautiful environments on time and in high style. A typical Green Couch installation includes asymmetry, color and loud fabric patterns within an overall balance punctuated by bits of unexpected drama. Whether a weekend home or a principal residence, Jeff believes that each home should have a certain simplicity, charm and character.

An in-home introductory meeting kicks off the design process with Schlarb's team to define a project scope and includes on-site recommendations with no further obligation. Design services start at $150.00 per hour and include client consultations, research, design, sketching, sourcing, coordination with manufacturers and contractors, as well as purchasing and procurement that are presented in proposal form before work commences. In addition to access to the latest design trends and trade-only vendors, Green Couch clients can be assured of the highest in customer service opportunities.

Why Green Couch? Schlarb shares his view on the company's name: “We were sitting on our settee in our first apartment on Nob Hill with glasses of wine, thinking, ‘what can we name ourselves?' We chose Green Couch, instead of a name like ‘Schlarb and Associates' because we wanted to work with a team of people, and foster an atmosphere that appreciates each individual. We also thought it was time for a fun organization that would come across as approachable. I don't want to speak ahead of myself, but I think that we enjoy a reputation as a fun, sharp organization that is approachable, so it's possible that our aspirations have materialized. And yes, we still own the couch.”
