About La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries Contest
In order to reward the best design execution, In-home Designers representing more
than 70 company-owned La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries stores
submitted their top makeover projects to La-Z-Boy. Entries
were judged on a variety of criteria, including creativity, insightfulness, design
expertise, customer service, final transformation and overall client satisfaction.
“We are very happy with the choices and the design support Darcy offered,” wrote
customer Mark Buehlman of Ellicott City. “It provides the perfect combination of
function, comfort, seating and eye appeal. We could not have done it without her
“Being able to translate a client’s ideas into a room that both realizes the full
potential of the space and reflects a unique personality is a skill and a challenge,”
said Suchman. “It was a pleasure to work with the Buehlman family to create a comfortable
and beautiful living room,
filled with custom elements, on a budget. I know they will enjoy the new space for
years to come.”
As the winner of the company-owned store “Designer of the Year” award, Suchman received
a vacation to the destination of her choice.
Suchman started her career with La-Z-Boy in 2009 and
has worked at both the Columbia and Annapolis stores in Maryland. Her expertise
in partnering affordable solutions with superior design allows her to deliver distinctive
decorating solutions for clients. She is a graduate of the
