Naples, FL (December 7, 2012) — Wilfredo Emanuel has been named to the expanding team of interior designers at Clive Daniel Home (www.clivedaniel.com), the award-winning home furnishings retailer in Naples, Florida.
As a professional interior designer, Emanuel has been featured as a TV personality, writer, speaker and personal consultant, modeling advisor and premier mentor for Christian DIOR USA House in both the Caribbean and the U.S. for nearly 15 years.
For the past year, Emanuel was the lead interior designer for LA-Z Boy Galleries in Orlando, responsible for the store’s in-home design program. Previously, he spent four years with the former Robb & Stucky at its Mall of Millennia and Altamonte Springs Orlando stores.
The newest addition to the Clive Daniel Home design team is fluent in both English and Spanish. Born in Puerto Rico, he holds a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from a college in San Juan, Puerto Rico as well as a Bachelor’s of Fine Art Interior Design from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Orlando, Florida. After studying the latest European and American furniture trends in Milan, he returned to the U.S. using his experience to bring Old World taste to the fast-moving American lifestyle. He is also a gifted photographer and excels in design-space planning, green design and color coordination.
Says Emanuel, “By incorporating great design and creativity into my work, I am able to create beautiful new realities for our clients. After a long and rewarding career, my motto remains “A great design begins with an honest and meaningful conversation with a client.”
Added Bonnie Kern, Clive Daniel Home General Manager, “Having worked with Wilfredo in Orlando, I know that he most enjoys getting to know his clients and understand their needs. His sparkling personality, infectious laughter and signature service has become an invaluable asset to our design team. One of his greatest skills is being able to build an entire home or room around a customer’s favorite pieces. He brings joy to his work and to our store.”
