With a new showroom primely situated on Fifth Avenue South in Downtown Naples, set to open this fall, Design West president and CEO, Glenn Midnet, is harnessing an impressive background of 40 years in the design industry. Bringing a unique experience to Naples, the full-service firm’s new space spans 7,200 square feet. Read on as Midnet previews what clients can expect.

Take us through the new showroom and studio. The showroom feels like you’re walking into a luxury Naples home with ceiling details, custom millwork, laser-cut inset wood patterns and light fixtures anchored by different furniture settings. It features Bang & Olufsen’s latest electronics in custom vignettes as well as Wood-Mode kitchens, entertainment walls and a detailed bedroom and bathroom vanity. Meanwhile, the second-floor studio is state-of-the-art. You’ll find televisions that display ongoing designs and renderings, a material library beneath 14-foot-tall ceilings and chandeliers that lead your eye out to a balcony. We also have presentation conference rooms upstairs with a celebratory bar.

What’s the spirit that drives Design West? Our inspiration comes from our mantra: Every great design begins with an even better story—yours. We believe your home should reflect your unique aesthetic, personality, history and lifestyle. This is why we begin with an in-depth “Design Profile” to learn how your space can help tell your story, and then we craft the vision from there. No two interiors should tell the same story.
