Standard Furniture to help family on ‘Designing Spaces' show
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, February 13, 2013
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. — Case goods resource Standard Furniture is about to help improve the lives of one local family in need.
The company is providing a house full of furniture to a family who will appear on an upcoming episode of the Lifetime network home improvement show, "Designing Spaces." The segment will appear on the show's six-part series called "Rebuilding Together."
The show offers families a chance at a new life by remodeling and furnishing their homes. Standard will help a family that includes a grandmother who is raising her grandchildren.
Standard is providing wood furniture for four bedrooms, a dining room and a living room, said Todd Evans, the company's president. He said the company was introduced to the show through a mutual friend and that this is the first time it will appear on the show.
"We have always respected their program, and they are first class people," he said. "What they do is genuine. Their show is built around improving lives and helping improve communities.... We were honored they selected us to partner with them."
Evans said his company also has six staff members on site this week, helping to unload the furniture and set it up in the home.
"It is amazing what they are doing," Evans said of the program. "It originally looked like a construction project that was unfinished. I have a feeling that when they finish with it, it will be fantastic."
Lysa Liemer, executive vice president of programming and chief operating officer for "Designing Spaces," said Standard is a valued partner and a good example of a company helping local families in need.
The show airs on the Lifetime network on Thursday and Friday at 7:30 a.m. Officials will soon announce the date of the Standard segment.
