Q.: Exactly who or what is IN+DAVI?
A.: It's quite simple to explain really. IN+DAVI (in-dah-vee) is a name that Joan (my wife and business partner) came up with when we were trying to think of an interesting name for our firm. IN+DAVI is the mix of her maiden name (the 'In' portion) and the 'Davi' is the majority of our last name - hence IN+DAVI!
Q.: So why is there an IN+DAVI?
A.: IN+DAVI was formed for several reasons:
The first reason is that we wanted to be able to provide great home and garden accents at affordable prices. Many of the items we are offering for sale we actually own and enjoy.
The second reason was to combine our skills into a viable business. Joan has a penchant for home decor that is smart, not too cluttered or contrived, simple yet elegant. Joan is not one for too much fluff or for going over the top. I, on the other hand, have been designing landscape and hardscape for clients for some time and wanted to be more creative with the landscape portion and harmonizing that with the home. Joan has the better eye to design the actual placement of items into the landscaping that we create.
Third, we wanted a little piece of the American Dream and have our own business. Although we will probably remain small that's perfectly fine as it will allow us to concentrate on giving our clients the attention and time that they deserve.
