Elan Vital Furniture and Design offers discounts through May
Paso Robles couple brings extraordinary living to locals
When Jim and April Romig decided to open Elan Vital Furniture & Design, they realized it was time to bring something new and unique – quality furniture, accessories, and custom designs, or what they call “extraordinary living” to local residents. Now, as they celebrate their success, the Romig’s are extending a special “thank you” to the community by offering 20 percent off all custom upholstery throughout the month of May.
Elan Vital is a unique design and furniture store in Paso Robles with three designers on staff that offer house calls and one hour of free design service to all clients. Taking pride in serving the local community, they offer medium to high end furniture goods, accessories, custom draperies, window coverings, bedding, design services and more.
“Nobody else in this area offers this level of service and quality,” said April. “There is no need to drive another hour and possibly pay more – shop local, save money and get customized, personalized service plus one hour of free design service.”
Free? Absolutely – an Elan Vital professional designer will meet with and take a new client through the showroom and then make a trip to the client’s home for an hour consultation.
“We listen to what the customer wants and needs, and then we help them meet that need or desire,” said April. April and her fellow designers pride themselves on focusing on and listening to their customer. “It’s not about us, or about pushing our designs on people. We listen to the customer; hear what the customer wants in their space, and help them to achieve that. It’s all about making the customer happy – it’s her home and she needs to love it. Our goal is to help every customer love their home; we want to provide a space they are happy to come home to.”
April oversees the designers while also managing the retail store and operations. With ten years of sales, management, and design experience, she has a true passion for design along with the ability to discern the individual needs of her clients. Jim, a general contractor, previously owned and operated several businesses in the Monterey Peninsula area. In addition to owning a local construction business, he is available to help Elan Vital customers with any and all handyman services.
“Jim not only co-owns Elan Vital, but he does everything from handyman services all the way up to full spectrum building,” said April. “So when our clients need something he’s happy to do work for them as well.”
Recently, April had a client that needed to have some painting done to compliment her newly-designed furniture – Jim was able to complete the painting for her for a fair price. Another client needed to hang a chandelier in her redesigned bathroom; Jim was available to provide installation services.
“In cases like these, our clients were able to get everything they wanted completed through our services,” said April.
Taking pride in personalized service, value, quality and a fresh design perspective, April and her team offer custom designs in addition to well-known brand names such as Drexel Heritage, ARTISAN, Four Hands Gallery, Left Bank Art, Magnussen, TRend Lighting, and more, and specialize in locating that perfect piece to complement and enhance the beauty of a home.
“We don’t like to be limited in our choices,” said April, “so we choose to go all away the East Coast to the high point market and select from brands and items that we feel will best serve our customers locally. We source from all over the nation, even Canada, if we feel something is the right product for our customers; I am highly intense when it comes to quality.”
Calling interior design her passion, April says that she enjoys helping people, being creative, and sharing her talents with others.
“It’s about helping people find the things that they want, being creative, and bringing together colors and shapes and textures that complement each other,” said April, “for me, it’s my passion – I love it.”
And just what is it about Paso Robles that makes serving the local community so appealing to this dynamic couple?
“We just love the community – the people are very friendly and we are friendly, so that works for us,” said April. “We have a sense that we are building something together and we feel like we are able to bring in a fresh perspective while still honoring the traditions and the desires of the community.”
