Dompierre, LLC is South Jersey’s premier full service interior design showroom serving both trade and retail clients in New York, Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey communities for nearly 20 years.
Dompierre opened its new showroom at 17 Roosevelt Blvd., in Marmora, NJ during the summer of 2015. Located just off Exit 25 of the Garden State Parkway, the property had been a residential home. It was built in 1960 and vacant for many years. Owner/Partners, Victor Dompierre and Jack Griffin, purchased the home with a vision of establishing a highly visible business that would be the centerpiece on the busy Upper Township/Ocean City thoroughfare. They refurbished the property and it is now a full service interior design showroom that can not go unnoticed, with its exquisitely landscaped exteriors and meticulously designed interiors. The showroom features: multiple living rooms, a kitchen, a bedroom, three powder rooms, a fabric room, and a lighting room. Additionally, Dompierre has a complete on-site custom drapery workroom – fabrication and installation is a specialty.
Customers are welcome to meet with designers and explore extensive line samples within the showroom, featuring fabrics, trims, custom window treatments, blinds, shutters, shades, motorization, upholstery, drapery, area rugs, wallpaper, boutique furniture, distinctive lighting, luxury bedding, original artwork and accessories. With over 50 years of experience, Dompierre’s interior design team understands the trends and functionality of each distinctive product line offered. Décor within the showroom can be purchased off the floor. Furthermore, if building a home or business, the Dompierre team offers paint consultation and construction liaison services.
