The duo of Pure Design Works met in 2015 when Dara hired Aly as a designer at a cabinet company in Charlotte, NC. The two clicked right away and seamlessly worked together from the start. Dara's role was to train Aly the process of designing, pricing, specifying and putting together complex cabinetry orders. Aly proved to be a quick learner with design and client management skills well beyond her years. During that time, they were exposed to the insides of the business and quickly became privy to many of the challenges and problems. Since they did not have the opportunity to voice their opinion and help their current employer grow his business, they decided to take their experience and knowledge and open Pure Design Works. Since its inception, their primary goal has been to provide exceptional customer service, education and quality design work. Aly and Dara constantly strive to remain honest, transparent and pure in all aspects of their business. This focus has led them to form partnerships with vendors, contractors, artisans and suppliers in the industry that share the same level of client focus and service.
