Elaine Thomas Interiors (ETI) was born out of Mimi’s determination and love for design. After being torn between a demanding job and the needs of her unwell child, Mimi aspired for more independence. Taking inspiration from her uncle’s art venture and her intrinsic passion for decorating, she persistently sought his mentorship until he agreed.
In 1996, Mimi launched ETI at a flea market, showcasing framed art and floral arrangements. As a tribute to her parents, she named the business after them. At just 19 years old, Mimi devoted herself fully to Elaine Thomas Interiors, becoming a full-time entrepreneur driven by her commitment to be an available mother.
The company expanded its horizons, and by 2004, Mimi had delved into the world of drapery, tapping into her deep affection for textiles. This new direction was a precursor to the firm’s later assistance to realtors with staging and decor.
Today, with a seasoned team boasting over 30 years of combined experience, ETI specializes in custom drapery and soft-goods, cementing its reputation in the industry.
The drapery experts here at ETI are able to meticulously transform your vision into reality. Feel free to reach out anytime to send a note or set up a consultation.
