Laurel & Wolf Has Closed—What Now?
You’ve finally decided to pull the trigger and make over that master bedroom, design a living room your family will love, or create your dream dining room, and then you’re hit with the biggest disappointment: your interior designer cancels the project. Recently, many homeowners and renters were struck this major letdown when online interior design firm Laurel & Wolf closed. The company’s closure left some clients wondering how to move forward with the interior design projects they’d already begun. If you’re uncertain how to proceed with your online interior design project, or transfer it over to a new designer, read on.
Why did Laurel & Wolf close?
Laurel & Wolf launched in 2014 with an innovative business model, one which promised to provide a service of affordable interior design to a wide audience via remote designers. Unfortunately, not all startups are destined to last, and the company encountered a number of operational and management challenges that were not overcome. Building any business is an uphill battle, but building one in a category that’s completely new to consumers (online interior design) can be especially difficult.
