VICTOR DOMPIERRE: OWNER/FABRICATOR
Victor’s talents stem from his parents; he is the son of a factory sewer and a pattern cutter. Victor worked at the Showboat casino for 13 years, designing and fabricating costumes for the casino shows, dressing both the chorus girls and the headliners, and designing for the greeter girls and the public area entertainers. Victor was trained at the Custom Home Furnishing Academy, where he learned the skills that are vital to the home decorating industry. He likes to call himself a master technician of window treatments, but his 16 years of creating window fashions proves he does more than just hanging curtains.
On a daily basis you will see Victor in our onsite workroom creating something beautiful and different every day. He might be cutting wood for a tailored cornice or sewing beaded trim to a gorgeous embroidered pillow, but either way he is focused on impeccable work from start to finish.
