Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? We are doing what nobody in the valley has dared to do yet, a contemporary twist on the typical “mountain style.” We pride ourselves on our fresh approach to home esthetics and our fashion forward attitude. Our customers can expect to gain a long-lasting relationship with us, coupled with quality and originality.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: Principal at Worth Home and owner of Worth Interiors (with offices in Vail and Palm Beach, Fla.), Eddie Doumas brings more than 18 years’ experience in design and business management to Worth. One of the few Colorado-based designers to have his work showcased in Architectural Digest, Doumas’ work has also been featured in Traditional Home, Florida Design, The Discovery Channel, the ABC Television Network, and included in Brunschwig and Fils’ latest Book; “Up Close,” and was selected by an international panel of judges for the 2007 Andrew Martin’s Designer Review, which lists the top designers globally.
What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? We find it quite amusing that items we originally purchased as props in our store have become some our best sellers. We have ended up selling dead aspen tree installations, battery operated chirping birds, and petrified mushrooms.
