Denise Gianna

What is the nature of your business?
My business is DeniseGiannaDesigns. I am an interior designer with a studio:shop at 494 Main St. Beacon NY.

I LOVE what I do but I especially love to work with clients and projects that present a challenge – a time or budget constraint, an interesting space layout or combination of treasured possessions. To keep by services practical and accessible to all, I charge for my services hourly and flexible and offer a complimentary consultation for most services.

When did you launch your business?

Did you start in Beacon?

If yes, why did you decide to start your business here?
I have lived in Beacon since 1998, owned two homes here, raised and educated my children here! The whole philosophy of my brand of interior design has been influenced by the Beacon vibe – quality over quantity, green, personally meaningful design.  (more…)
