Consulting an Interior Designer

Pauline: Hello Tracy.

Tracy: Hello Pauline. I came as soon as I could. What’s the hurry?

Pauline: Thank you. You see, I have to buy a new bed and since you’re a pretty good interior designer, I wanted to get your opinion.

Tracy: Okay but tell me, what do you have in mind?

Pauline: I want to know if I should get a high back bed or a low one.

Tracy: The back wall of your bedroom is plain, I think you should go for a high back bed.

Pauline: Won’t it look overdone?

Tracy: Definitely not! The other furniture in your room is straight and light so it will fit right in.

Pauline: That’s right! Thank you for your help Tracy.

Tracy: Pleasure Pauline!

Buying a Sofa

Pauline: I need to buy a low height sofa. Can you help me with it?

Pauline: Do you provide the customization option?
