Our Fearless Leader

A Message from Angela Harris

Nearly 20 years ago, I saw a need in the market for a design firm that could be a true partner to builders and developers – a firm that understood the sales and marketing aspects as well as how to deliver compelling design. TRIO was born out of a belief that through a market-driven design approach, we could hit targeted markets at a lower cost, in a shorter time period and with better quality merchandise. We were right.

Today, TRIO collaborates on all aspects of master planned communities, model homes, clubhouses, sales centers, commercial and hospitality projects, and multifamily apartment communities. We also offer a comprehensive studio for everything related to interior architecture and merchandising. We’re one of the fastest-growing design and merchandising firms in the nation for a reason. We set ourselves apart through hard work, expertise, client service, and a deep understanding of the importance of designing marketable products. And, in my opinion, we have one of the best teams in the business.

What’s Next

As CEO, Principal and Creative Director at TRIO, I wake up daily to various messages asking, “what’s next?” What project is next, what’s trending in the market, what’s next in design…

When I sit down to answer these burning questions, I usually draw inspiration by trusting in my belief that all beautiful things are genuine, marked by mastery of talent, and drawn from a deep understanding of time and space. This, in turn, inspires me to create designs and products which are fresh and withstand the test of time – items that can be used in my daily work as a designer. It’s these questions and concepts that led to collaborations with companies like Phillips Collection and TileBar. Rewarding partnerships that resulted in top-selling collections which can be found online at places like Home Depot and Wayfair. It’s validation that our work at TRIO, and what we learn with builders and developers on the commercial side, translates to residential projects and works just as well for the typical home owner.

At TRIO we see beauty and find inspiration in authenticity, simplicity, art, comfort, nature, technology, and travel. I’ve created this ‘What’s Next’ Look Book that takes these principals to heart and delivers my vision of what’s on the horizon. It’s my hope that these stories will find connection, light a spark, evoke emotion and, above all, enhance your lifestyle and allow you to, Live Beautifully!
