Sometimes, a small request leads to big opportunities.
In February, a Richmond designer who often partners with H.J. Holtz & Son asked Carpentry Division Manager Jeff Nonnemacker if someone at the company could build, from scratch, an open end table with shelves, using a photo for guidance.
The designer’s client had a specific need, and the table the client had found was on back order – with a delivery date months in the future. Knowing of the Holtz carpentry team’s ability to repair and replace interior woodwork, the designer wondered if the table could be made in-house.
Local interior designer Janie Molster – a frequent partner with H.J. Holtz & Son on residential projects – says Holtz work is on display throughout her new book “House Dressing,” even if the company name is nowhere to be found.
“My editor advised me not to name vendors and business partners, because I was sure to forget someone,” she laughs. “But Holtz is basically the star of the book.”
