Homepolish “Disrupts” Traditional Interior Design
Homepolish is a two-year-old design firm with a start up mentality. Founded by a young designer and a former BuzzFeed coder, the company’s aim is to democratize interior design, providing high-end services for bargain prices. An in-home consultation is just $80 ($50 for a junior designer) and the company nixes commissions and markups in favour of a flat hourly rate of $130 ($100 for junior designers). It launched in New York but has since expanded to 10 other US cities, including San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia. No word yet on a Canadian expansion, but we can hope!
