Design Resource Associates, initiated in 2004 by Dennis Coffey and Ellen Osterhaus, is a "To the Trade" business - marketing fine interior products to the designer. We have been closely involved with designers for many decades -- with a combined experience of over 50 years. As time and events evolved, we determined that we shared a similar dream and thus chose to start our "To the Trade" enterprise in 2004. At the onset we had a strong belief that we could benefit the design community with our experience and services.
We envisioned building a business based on core values of product knowledge, integrity, and plain hard work. In 2004, we both believed that the opportunity existed to challenge ourselves and create an enterprise that would address those ideas.
Today, Design Resource Associates continues to serve an ever expanding client base of professional designers throughout the country. Our keystone is to market unique and competitively priced products to the design trade while giving the utmost in professional customer service. This is our pledge to you.
