F O U N D E R / P R I N C I P A L D E S I G N E R
With a B.A. in Interior Design, and nearly 20 years of service in design and sales, our goal is to create spaces that our clients never knew they deserved. We go beyond making it look aesthetically pleasing and make sure the home functions as it should, it becomes the beautiful backdrop for memories to be made, and it frees our clients from the anxiety of having an unfinished home.
We have been seen in Architectural Digest (AD), House Beautiful, The Washington Post, Home & Design Magazine, Business of Home, Reveal Magazine, and others. DuVäl has been named as “The One to Watch” and “Hot Talent” and listed by AD as one of “13 Black Designers You Need to Know.” And most recently, named as one of House Beautiful’s Next Wave Designers of 2023.
We are passionate about giving back to the design community and have previously held a board position with District Design Society, a networking group among young design professionals in the DC Metro Area. We also served as board member for the nationally recognized International Furnishings & Design Association (IFDA) DC Chapter, which strives to be “the driving force, through its programs and services, to enhance the professionalism and stature of the industry worldwide.”
We were named as one of HPMKT’s Style Spotters for 2022, the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world. We enjoy visiting schools and talking to students about real-world experience, interview training, sales tactics, etc. currently serving on the Interior Architecture + Design Advisory Council for Marymount University. We also moderate a monthly gathering, Business Strategies for Minorities, where participants discuss best business practices, and we currently sit as co-chair of High Point Market Authority’s (HPMKT) Diversity Advocacy Alliance.
DuVäl and his wife, a former flight paramedic for the US Dept of Defense (DOD), recently opened Fairfax Kitchen Cabinets, a multi-line cabinetry company for industry and trade partners. They also recently launched an e-commerce site, House of DuVäl, a curated collection of quality products to support local economies and small businesses. A leg of the company is dedicated to supporting causes that fight for humanity, individual rights, and personal freedoms.
