How did your business begin?
M. Gallery began as a dream that I had to open my own interior design studio where I could exhibit beautiful items that I could hand select, as well as display original works by talented local artisans.
What is the mission of your business?
I have one goal in mind — to provide a first class customer service oriented experience for both our valued walk-in gallery customers and our scheduled interior design clients. I want everyone who visits us to tell others about the great experience they had shopping at the gallery and for everyone who hires us to be thrilled with the end result of their design project. While M. Gallery is a fast-growing, multi-faceted interior design center, our primary mission remains the same — to exceed your expectations!
What is something people would be surprised to learn about your business?
M. Gallery is home to more than 45 different artists and exhibitors. Many of our award-winning artists bring us fabulous one-of-kind pieces, while others do specialty commissions based on ideas from our customers or design professionals. We also offer custom framing, floral design, custom bedding, and design rugs tailored to suit your space. Our beautiful space is available to rent for your special events.
What are the latest developments in your gallery?
In addition to our retail gallery, we offer on-site residential and commercial consulting that ranges from blue-print stage to remodels and remixes of your own items. We specialize in furniture placement, art acquisition, and even provide “paint only” consults if you simply need to change your color palette. We are also proud to announce that we have had tremendous success staging homes for resale this past year, partnering with the Terry Bishop Realty Team. Together, we are redefining home staging and sales in the Columbia and Lexington area.
