Company description: “Our Shop + Studio is an interior design showroom featuring 10 everchanging vignettes curated with unique furnishings, art and decor that represent varying styles and themes.”
 
Target market: Women ages 30-65
 
Company growth: “Big Sky has grown pretty steadily over the years. When we initially began, we only did commercial for the first five years, until eventually doing residential design, as well. We recognized the larger residential population in Wilmington and the diverse resources and services it would allow for our company – leading us to open our Shop + Studio a few years down the road. About two to three years ago, we really put more time and focus into our shop, and it became evident that it was such an important extension of Big Sky and how we could offer our services and product to the public. We knew that if we wanted to continue utilizing our shop and those unique offering opportunities, then we would need to increase our square footage.”
 
What are your future goals for the product? “It’s our goal to always keep an eye out for upcoming artists and craftspeople so we can show their work in unique, interior settings.”
