Creative Concepts proudly celebrates its 47th anniversary in 2020 — and while it’s a new decade full of new interior-design concepts, the same experienced, friendly faces are ready to assist you with your furniture-and-home-accessory needs.
Creative Concepts was built upon a foundation of honesty and integrity by its founders, Wayne and Bobbi Lednum. They have always cared for their employees as family, and as a result, the company has had very little turnover. The multi-talented Creative Concepts interior-designer team have a combined 285 years of industry experience and is always at the forefront of the latest colors, styles and trends. From countryside chic to black-and-white bathrooms, swags and easy-to-use fixtures to natural luxury, two-tone kitchens to colors becoming the new neutrals, they have the knowledge and diversity to work with every customer’s unique style preferences — and exceed their expectations in the process.
When it comes to their customers, the Lednums have always believed in one simple yet profound philosophy: to offer the best possible price at all times for quality service and products — including always providing complimentary design services. Creative Concepts was one of the very first furniture-and-home-accessory stores on the entire Shore to offer this value-added amenity. While competitors place a premium on the service, Wayne wouldn’t have it any other way.
Finding the ideal piece of furniture or thoughts of designing an entire room are often accompanied by overwhelming feelings of uncertainty and anxiety, as many homeowners are unsure what to do or where to start. At Creative Concepts, the process begins with the designer easily and naturally connecting with their clients, putting their minds at ease and building a trusting relationship to fully understand their needs and personalities. This priority is of the utmost importance to Creative Concepts designers, as they are welcomed by the clients into their personal spaces – a gesture never taken for granted. The bond is further enhanced by the designer expertly guiding the homeowners through the myriad of available selections and conveying current design trends. The relationship is fortified through the design of the space loved by the clients, which in turn engenders an excitement and energy that sweeps over all of them. The result is that Creative Concepts’ designers bask in the glow of their clients’ joy, taking pride in the knowledge of a job well done.
From simple paint recommendations and space planning to full collaboration during an extensive remodel or new construction, the Creative Concepts design team do it all. They often work with architects and contractors to develop a comprehensive plan that incorporates the features of the home’s design elements and furnishings. The group, which includes a wonderful support staff, also collaborate extremely effectively and openly share their insights on a project, to provide the very best possible design.
Creative Concepts serves the greater Eastern Sussex County area, yet a substantial number of satisfied clients insist the designers travel to their primary residences off the Shore to transform these spaces, too. New customers are invited to stop by, enjoy a cup of coffee and see the vast array of stylish “creative concepts” available today.
