Interior Design & Home Furniture

Furniture store or interior design specialist?  Ask Brick & Mantel (formerly Praetzel’s Fine Furniture) customers and they’ll tell you Brick & Mantel is both.  This is because along with all of our other services, we happily provide many of the same services associated with higher end interior designers.  We have ASID certified Interior Designers in house.

Besides expert space planning, room layout suggestions, color consultations, fabric recommendations and paint selection, we also oversee refinishing, re-upholstering, re-framing as well as conserving and appraising.  Plus, since we’ve been in business for over 50 years, we have knowledge of extremely reliable crafts people we recommend because we know they’ll treat you right, not because we get commissions or kickbacks. Your needs in Interior Design Petaluma CA and the surrounding area can be trusted to us. Continue Reading
