A Great Partnership Starts with a Trade Account

A Showroom for design trade professionals

Chicago Design Source is a showroom exclusively for interior designers and related design trade professionals. We don't sell to the public - our relationship is with you, the design trade professional. As such, qualified designers enjoy the benefits of wholesale pricing, concierge level service, and an extensive selection of custom home furnishings in a beautiful showroom setting. Because you are reselling goods to your client, orders with CDS are tax-exempt, and a resale number is necessary to open a trade account. Don't have a resale number? Simply contact the Illinois Department of Revenue or your tax professional to complete the easy process. Our two large showrooms, conveniently located in The Arlington Design Center, are your SOURCE for inspiration, support, quotes and ordering services. Call, email or stop in today to start a lasting partnership with Chicago Design Source.

SERVICE AND SUPPORT BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS

In addition to a staff of design professionals, Chicago Design Source has a dedicated, full-time Hunter Douglas pro - an HD Certified Consultant - to support you through every step of your Hunter Douglas order. We are here to help you sell beautiful Hunter Douglas shades and blinds to your client, and our HD pro is happy to demonstrate products throughout the showroom, explain features, provide quotes and revisions (typically the same day as requested), suggest options, and answer your questions all to help you close the sale. Measure and installation info is integrated into the process as well. We then place your order and keep you informed of key dates. Grow your business by selling the Hunter Douglas brand of quality window treatments, and experience the superior level of service and support found only at the trade-only Chicago Design Source showroom.

PROVIDING EVERY TOOL FOR YOUR SUCCESS

What does it take to succeed in selling Hunter Douglas to your client? Besides the ability to consult with our Hunter Douglas expert, there's the full size product displays. We've got thirty sample shades in our showroom, in all types of controls and styles, including PowerView, for you to see, feel, open and close. Next is sample cases. We've got every current, complete Hunter Douglas shade, blind and shutter case (including the Alustra line) in a spacious and clean research area. Additionally, designers ordering through CDS are exclusively allowed to borrow loan-out sample cases and/or hand samples for client meetings. Alternately, you are welcome to bring your client into our showroom for a full hands-on sales experience. All the tools needed to sell the Hunter Douglas brand with confidence are proudly offered exclusively to the design professional by Chicago Design Source.
