Luxe Furniture and Design has gone through several iterations and locations in Tulsa.
It was originally Norwalk Furniture, changed to Luxe Home Interiors in 2008, and was rebranded Luxe Furniture and Design in 2014.
In March, the store moved from its location in the Kings Landing Shopping Center on Riverside Drive to a new larger space at 10545 S. Memorial Drive.
Tamara Noel’s relationship with the store has changed, as well. She went from a loyal customer to its owner in 2013, transforming her passion for interior design into a career.
"I spent seven years working on the trading floor of a local natural gas company," Noel says. "Although I always knew I was meant for entrepreneurship, my time there in the corporate world taught me a lot about business, time management, risk-taking and networking."
Luxe offers furniture and home accessories for every room, but also more specialized areas like nurseries, home offices and even outdoor spaces. Luxe carries some privately labeled products, but most of the inventory is sourced from approximately 30 different manufacturers to offer a variety of styles at various price points.
In addition to furniture, the store also offers complimentary one-on-one design services with one of the company’s six designers.
"They’re here to help you execute your vision," Noel says. "They come out to your home and take measurements and learn how you and your family use your home to provide the best recommendations and options for furniture and decor. They help you with the big picture."
Noel and her team attend market events each year to see and hear about the latest trends, materials and pieces in interior design.
"A lot of it follows the trends in fashion — the colors, patterns, textures," she says, but Luxe isn’t beholden to them. "We see what’s out there and what’s right for us. What’s right for Oklahoma customers is different than what’s right for California customers."
