Even at first look you cannot help but notice the main menu, the large social media buttons (LinkedIn, Twitter, FB) and, last but not least, the slider presenting the finished interiors based on the designer's projects. You cannot overlook the large request-an-offer button either.
The next part presents the different sections of the site. There is a contact form on each and every page so that you can easily request additional information.
The main menu and the sub-menus will guide us towards a portfolio, further images, links to appearances in press, blog and projects.

Later on the site has been re-designed / re-built by James Dillon.
creating the WordPress site based on an old one in HTML
the client insisted on keeping a simple design, very similar to the look of the old site. They did not want any kind of slider, collection of client testimonials or video on the starting page, even though I prepared a page of this kind which has been deactivated in the end
the advantages of this simple design are excellent disposition of the four products in the webshop and easy purchase (by just one click on the front page)
although there are only four products to buy, the webshop (developed with WooCommerce) is fully functional
the online shop uses multiple payment gateways and real time calculation of shipping costs depending on destination, parcel size and weight, standard or 24-hours delivery by real time interogation of USPS database
calculating the discount directly in the cart when buying more products
