The Black Goose Design has been providing high-end furniture and fresh designs for 36 years. In that same time span, they’ve also been cultivating relationships with exclusive vendors, so if you don’t see something in the showroom, they’ll special order it for you. “We have a broad spectrum of offerings to meet your needs, function, space and location,” says Denise Van Ekelenburg, senior designer. 

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the project, you’re not alone. “In addition to a retail store front, we offer all-inclusive resources to furnish a home,” says Van Ekelenburg. “We even have an in-house construction team for remodels.”     From a start-to-finish new build and moving into a fully furnished home to refreshed paint colors, the experts at The Black Goose Design can help you with any size project. 

With a wide array of quality home furnishings, accessories, custom window treatments and wall coverings to choose from, there’s no limit to what you can create. “Our retail store features four upholstery vendors as well as high-end pillows, accessories, lamps and more,” says Van Ekelenburg. “With industry lead times being longer than normal, we have a lot of great in-stock options with more products coming in all the time.” 

“Connecting with each client to see the big picture. How do they use the space on a Friday night or a Sunday morning? I ask about family dynamics, how many kids, grandkids, pets and their everyday lives. Then, I create a space that functions around them to bring their vision of home to life.” —Denise van ekelenburg, senior designer.

Ask the Expert


Preservation. Rather than take a house down, preserve it. Keep the stained glass windows, refinish the hardwood floors. Find the purpose of the space and stay within the integrity of the original architecture and location. Then add pops of color in rugs, pillows and artwork. It’s a great way to preserve while adding modern flair. 


People have turned inward to focus on their homes as retreats. We can help cultivate a sense of organic serenity. Many people are adding meditation spaces, workout spaces and more to make their homes beautiful places to escape. 


People want a place of gathering, a welcome space for extended families. We’re seeing dining tables that can seat 12 or more comfortably. More and more, people want a party pad and open doors to swimming pools where entire families can play.
