Les and Olivia Streeton, owners of R Furniture Design, recently announced that the company has changed its name to VANITY RESOURCE. Mr. Streeton states the new name more accurately represents the mission of the Company, which is to be the market’s premier source for exceptionally well-made, aesthetically magnificent, reclaimed wood and natural stone vanities.
Les and Olivia started what is now Vanity Resource in 2004, enlivened by Les’ more than 20 years of experience in the reclaimed cabinetry business while in Northamptonshire, England. Working side by side, the couple began designing, manufacturing, and selling bathroom vanities of solid wood reclaimed from vintage barns and cabins, as well as flooring from former factories and mills. Immediately, their rustic modern furnishings line took off and has steadily grown in popularity. Today, Les, Olivia, and their dedicated team continue to operate the creative hub of Vanity Resource out of High Point.
Les and Olivia are extremely excited about this new phase in the development of their company despite the recent economic downturn. The primary reason for their optimism is that their vanities are genuine investment pieces that can significantly increase the value of the purchaser’s home. As a result, buying one of their vanities is not a frivolous expense but a true investment in the value of the owner’s home. Stated Les, “we offer today’s homeowners a way to increase the value and appeal of their home.”
They have also created a new website, found at www.vanityresource.com. One of the benefits of the site is that it provides those in the trade access to significantly lower prices and more customized, one-on-one assistance than offered the general population. All of these measures are meant to fulfill the company’s promise that no one will provide a higher quality product, better service, or the price points it offers for such uniquely spectacular vanities and furnishings.
