Toms River, NJ – Design Alternatives, a woman-owned interior fit out and design firm with over 30 years of experience has partnered with marketing and business development consulting firm, Vail Marketing Solutions. Design Alternatives is looking to increase their marketing efforts by strengthening their existing client relations and branching out into new markets. Vail Marketing Solutions, led by Jessica Vail, is a multi-service marketing consulting firm, also based in Toms River, New Jersey. They will assist with creating content, expanding the social media footprint, new client development and providing educational content and webinars to Design Alternatives’ growing client base. Design Alternatives also has an extensive selection of immediately available materials, fabrics, flooring and furniture within their 4,000 square foot show room in Toms River, New Jersey.

“We want to position Design Alternatives for growth into new markets,” says President and Owner, Carrie Fusella. “Due to healthcare facilities currently halting capital improvement projects to keep their staff and residents safe, we are looking to grow in other segments and have immediate openings for consultations and renovations.

Marrying beauty, elegance and function with people’s connectivity

Marrying beauty, elegance and function with people’s connectivity to the physical space has always been our guiding vision…

As designers, we aim to create spaces that are warm, comfortable, and functional which draw people in, harness their senses in dynamic ways, and push beyond prevailing thinking of what it means to interact with the material world.

In our new reality, social distancing can prove to be a challenge for employers and facilities. However, the need to distance socially should not preclude connectivity and beauty. Design Alternatives can offer several products that would keep your staff and clients safe while still providing a nice aesthetic. From floor signage and disinfection stations to thermographic cameras to screens and partitions, we can help get your place of business up and running in a safe and effective manner.

In addition to being functional and pretty, the screen, divider and partitioning solutions achieve privacy without seclusion and are versatile, adaptable and configurable. They are easy to clean and sanitize and relevant for hospitality, healthcare, retail, institutional, educational and residential environments. They divide spaces and create privacy, while at the same time, maintain a delightfully connected whole by extending, distributing and maximizing ambient and daytime light.

Thank you to all the Heroes

Thank you to all the heroes of this pandemic we are so grateful. We recognize the sacrifice you make daily to fight this virus and we’re so appreciative!

During these unprecedented times, we, like many others, were furloughed due to government mandates. However, many of our clients are considered essential workers and they have been working around the clock to guide, assist and care for their residents. As a gesture of gratitude during this pandemic, to those SpringPoint Senior Living employees, we wanted to honor and recognize those who are doing and giving so much during these difficult times.

Therefore, as a company, we decided to do something that would be meaningful for the employees but also something they needed (or wanted). We prepared individual goodie bags filled with sweet, savory and healthy snacks. We also included treats for our furry friends because we all need a little love during these times. Our message was simple in its words but deep and heartfelt in meaning, “Your Dedication Inspires Us! Thank you, from the team at Design Alternatives.

Boxes filled with these bags were delivered to each facility…a small gesture that went a LONG way!
