REVIEWS OF by Design Furniture and Interior Design IN Iowa


Jacob C

My wife and I have bought furniture here and feel that it is sad that after spending several thousand dollars on merchandise and waiting for it for several months, there was no follow-up from the designer to see how we liked it or if there were any issues. Horrible customer service at the end!

Jessica did a wonderful job helping me create a plan for my living room from scratch. I gave her very little to work with, but her opinions and suggestions are working out great as I slowly continue to put it all together.

Sydney Cone

Working with Laura was so great! They have so many great ideas and really helped me to find exactly what I wanted. I am not from the area but Laura was always able to help me via email/phone if I needed it throughout this process - everything was so easy from the time I stepped foot into the store to when my furniture was delivered!

I have been a customer of By Design for many years. Room by room they have worked with my husband and I to design pleasing, comfortable, affordable, great looking spaces.. They have wonderful service. I love to go in the store and walk all around it slowly and see what I like and then meet with a designer. The store always looks amazing and is set up as rooms so it is easy to picture the end result. There are many, many fabrics to choose from and they assist me in narrowing them down to my favorites. I have difficulty making a decision and they work with me with great patience and guide me along the process. Another great thing about purchasing at By Design, is that the room has a finished look. They will help you make the entire room look great including pictures and accessories. Before I used By Design, I would have a piece I liked but the room never had the look I wanted. I have received many compliments from my friends when they visit my home. My most recent purchase was a twin sofa sleeper. I am looking forward to its arrival in a few weeks! I would recommend this store to my friends and family as it is locally owned and they truly care about customer satisfaction.

By Design was incredibly patient with me: I came to the store at least three times before I was ready to make a purchase. I then worked with Laura to transform my living room into a space with personality, warmth and comfort. As soon as she came in she understood my vision and despite having to wait for my furniture longer than expected, due to the lovely winter we have been having, it was well worth the wait! The personalized experience and the customizable furniture are wonderful.

My husband and I worked with Laura to select our furniture. As soon as we walked in, Laura greeted us. We began working with her to select the furniture for us. First, she came in to our property to take measurements and talked to us about our needs, then she pre-selected from the inventory and as soon as we came back for an appointment, she had a plan designed for us in terms of the design within our budget. We made a few changes and were ready to start the process of delivering the furniture to us. When the furniture was delivered to our property, Laura was there to guide where the furniture goes. As a result, she made the whole process simple and easy for us as well as the final product looks phenomenal. We received positive feedback from our family and friends. I would recommend Laura for her professionalism and expertise for your furniture selection and interior design. It has been pleasure to work with her. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with By Design! We just built our dream home and wanted a local professional design team to furnish it with high quality furnishings. The staff at By Design are very friendly and accommodating! Elissa is our Interior Designer and we highly recommend her to help with your design needs. She is very professional and took her time with our project. She designed our living room, study, dining room, master bedroom, and our lower level. She had outstanding ideas that made our home beautiful, cozy and chic! We will definately continue to use them with any future design needs. Thank you for your expertise with the interior design our home! We love it!

I had the best relationship working with the staff of By Design and specifically Interior Designer Laura Beeler. I knew from the moment I wanted to design my living room in my new home that By Design was where I would go. While growing up my mother worked with Bonita on many projects in my childhood home and they were always beautiful! I found the entire experience to be fun and enjoyable. Laura met me for a consultation to discuss my thoughts and wants for my living room. She listened to everything I expressed and although I was a little all over the board she was able to come up with exactly what I wanted; Style and Function. After coming to my home to look at the room in person and take measurements, we met again at By Design. During this meeting she showed me all the ideas she had put together from the furniture, lamps, artwork and the layout. It was for sure the most exciting part of the experience. She went as far as to advise me about paint colors that would compliment the room as well. Laura stayed on track with the budget I had shared with her and there was never any unexpected surprises that alarmed me. When all the items arrived and were delivered she was right there to help assist me in getting everything arranged and set up. Instantly my living room was transformed from boring and blah to beautiful, functional, and stylish! I can't thank Laura and Bonita enough and look forward to working with Laura again on my future design projects.

We can't say enough how much we are enjoying working with Laura at By Design. From the minute I walked into the door; through the two hours I was there - I felt as if I was the only thing that mattered. Laura listened to my decorating challenge, skillfully pulled samples of fabrics that would be appealing; and without pressure but with great care put together a plan for our remodel project. I had gone to several other area stores without success for two months; and was afraid the cost would be prohibitive for me. That was not the case. Now I can't wait until my pieces come and look forward to a long-term relationship with these wonderful designers who really care about their clients. Julie Wiemann

My good friend, Sherri, is a designer at by Design and encouraged me to browse their American Leather furniture line in my hunt for a new sectional for our great room. I was wanting something contemporary, comfortable, and durable and found the perfect style on the American Leather website. Sherri then had me come in and we poured over the fabric choices until we found the perfect one. I then decided I'd better get a new area rug and Sherri to the rescue! When Sherri texted me the exciting news that my sectional, love seat and rug had arrived in their store, she included a photo of a coffee table that she thought would a good companion and when I showed my husband, he said, "oh, that's cool - go and look at it". I did and I loved it (and, of course, the matching side table). Thanks to by Design's fabulous product selection and Sherri's good eye, we now have a room that is not only functions well for our family but it also incredibly beautiful. Thank you, Sherri and the entire by Design team for the fabulous experience!

By Design has been my furniture store for the past 20 years. I have purchased three living room and two sun room pieces. Laura has been incredible helping me redesign my living room. She listened to my ideas and knew I liked color and she made the entire process of so much fun. I can't wait to complete my new room and set back with a smile and know my room is done to perfection. Thank you Laura for all your help and for not only furniture but paint color and carpeting. Your the BEST!!!!

Kathy Dorff

I'm so pleased to have found By Design! My home is a 1920s Craftsman, but because most stores feature furniture that's styled and sized for modern "great room" homes, I was growing frustrated by the lack of available options. Laura took my ideas and came back days later with some truly beautiful solutions. In addition, I felt like I was friends with her from the moment we met, which also made the experience an enjoyable one!

Michon Leddy

My husband and I are so pleased with our custom sectional order! It is a bit scary to special order something you cannot actually touch. But, Sherri was so helpful with showing us the same manufacturer on their showroom. We were able to sit and feel the comfort, and leather quality. Sherri went beyond our expectations and had our special order to us in 3 weeks! I don't know how she did it- but she knew how important it was to us, and she just made it work! Thank you Sherri, and By Design for a great experience!


I am working with Laura on furnishings for our new home. She took my design style and looks that I wanted to achieve and put everything together to complete our home. Laura has worked tirelessly to find just the right pieces, and upholstery coverings to fit the space and overall look . The custom upholstery and drapery construction is amazing. It is all coming together very nicely with the help of Laura and the By Design Team.

We worked with Laura during our experience and she made it very enjoyable and stress free! She found exactly what we were looking for and that fit our space perfectly! With young kids we were worried about what furniture to get and she made sure to get something that accommodated for that as well. The process was so fun and fast. Then when the furniture came in, Laura came with the movers and made sure everything was perfect! We absolutely LOVE her choices and would highly recommend By Design, especially Laura!

With just a month to fully decorate a new home and the stress of an out of state move, we chose Laura Beeler at By Design to be our quarterback. I promised my wife that with this house we would seek professional help, rather than trying to do all the work ourselves. We came to By Design after searching for a local Des Moines store that fit our transitional to modern style. We relied on Laura to quickly pull together all aspects of the interior design and layout to make our new home comfy, stylish, and functional for a growing family. Laura worked really hard under a very short timeframe to coordinate floor coverings, furniture (some of which we custom ordered), window coverings, and the overall design aesthetic. We are off to a great start to establish a warm and inviting home for our move and our new adventure! Overall a positive experience with an experienced designer. Laura is a true professional and her warm personality helped guide us through this stressful time! I highly recommend Laura and By Design Furniture and Design, and will undoubtedly turn to their services again as we grow in our new home! Aaron Lentz, MD

Angela Lahr was really great to work with, both in terms of her professional opinions and her help to create a cohesive design of our newly remodeled living room. Angela was an excellent communicator and clearly listened to our wants and desires. By Design, has well made furniture, throw rugs and numerous styles to choose from, that fit our vision of tranquil comfort yet remaining stylish. I highly recommend Angela and By Design if you are looking for new furniture and want a total design experience to help you decide what you want for your living room! Thank you Angela for making our home a place that we can enjoy for many years to come!

Wayne Price

We so enjoyed working with Sherri to help us update our family room furniture. She worked hard to coordinate fabrics with a difficult existing rug. The end result is beautiful! The customer service provided by our designer Sherri and the owner Bonita was outstanding. They made sure we were extremely happy with all of our selections. Sherri, we appreciate your expertise and look forward to working with you again on future projects. By Design..Beautiful furniture...Great Service

Pamela Freeman

I had a GREAT experience with by Design! We recently built a home and I needed a lot of help with furniture and design. Their furniture is unique and not what you see everywhere else. And more importantly, you will not find a nicer, more helpful, honest group of people.

Stephanie Kempf

We have had an excellent experience at By Design both in terms of selection and design expertise offered. We worked with Laura Beeler who did a fantastic job listening and understanding us. I appreciate that she gave her honest opinions on our selections and help guide us to a terrific outcome. I highly recommend both By Design and Laura Beeler!
