Sha Davari’s Art of Design offers styles from traditional to contemporary all under one roof, plus an experienced staff to guide design decisions
When Sha Davari was working on a degree in business and accounting from Hendrix College, she never imagined she would end up becoming an interior designer. It was a part-time job with a local designer that opened the door to that possibility. “That’s when I realized I loved making spaces beautiful,” she says.
After working at various furniture showrooms and running a booth at a furniture market in town, Sha opened her own store, Art of Design, in 2016 in the Riverdale Design District. Since that time, she has already upgraded to a larger location that’s almost twice the size of her previous one. Art of Design stocks furniture, lighting, rugs, art, and accessories ranging from traditional to contemporary, though overall, the store has Sha’s signature transitional feel. “I like clean lines in a space, and I love gold as an accent color,” she says.
She’s also excited about the growing choice in fabrics that provide more durability without sacrificing style. “Performance and Crypton fabrics are giving our clients a wider range of colors to explore without the fear of stains,” she says. Sha and the team at Art of Design offer complimentary design service, and they are always careful to keep design solutions within their clients’ budgets.
