Our Family Business

Aegean Design Studio is a 3rd generation family-owned business. We started as Aegean Floor Covering in 1970 by my grandparents Nick & Mary Patridis, both from Greece.

When my parents Larry & Chrysteen Braun took the business over we added interior design, window coverings, furniture, gifts & accessories. This was also the beginning of another business Designing Whims. Eventually we merged the two businesses together and became Aegean Designing Whims, at that point we added kitchen and bath remodeling.

In 2014 my parents were ready to enjoy retirement, so it became my turn to take over and continue on with my grandparent’s legacy. Focusing on what I’m most passionate about- flooring, kitchen & bath design, window coverings. We gave our showroom a fabulous update, along with our name - Aegean Design Studio, 50 years and counting.

“We really try to take the time to get to know our clients and make sure they get the great results they are hoping for.”

Give Attention to Detail

Being invited into our client’s home brings the responsibility to get it right! I appreciate the trust that my client’s have in our team to deliver the great transformations and I take care to make sure that the project is run with excellence from the first showroom visit to the final installation.

Our first floor master bath had severe water damage from our upstairs bathroom. Everything was demolished and we had to start from scratch. The design team in Aegean were very kind, courteous, and absolute class acts. We did our do diligence and accepted a handful of bids from competitors and though we ended up selecting a different team, we can confidently say that we do not mind revisiting Aegean for future and planned renovations. Both Dawn and Sheila were outstanding and they provided high quality work with their presentations and design. We highly recommend them and Aegean, if you’re looking for a top notch family-owned and community based design team.

Aegean has helped us in two full kitchen remodels, one in our previous home and now in our new house where we are doing a full house remodel. They have lots of choices and are very respectful of the budget. The designers we worked with gave us options and professional drawings and layouts for full visualization of the layout. Their cabinet installers are the best and can make modifications on site to suit your needs. We highly recommend Aegean and would definitely use them again- but hopefully we are done with remodeling 😉

Aegean Design Services is a full comprehensive design center. They showcase beautiful kitchen and bath vignettes. The service is top notch! I never ever felt pressured to purchase anything and the ENTIRE staff made you feel so welcome anytime you came by to ask questions. I remodeled 2 bathrooms and a kitchen and my experience was positive. You won’t regret hiring them. They’re fantastic!

We've worked with Aegean Design Studios for over 25 years! They're great. They have helped us with wood flooring, kitchen remodeling, bath remodeling and blinds and shades. The staff is extremely pleasant and I've always felt I was a valued customer. They're super.
