As the master mind behind her aptly named company, Tobi Fairley & Associates, Tobi is far more than a peddler of pillows. Top shelter magazine Traditional Home predicts, “Tobi will be like Cher or Oprah, one of those women for whom one name says it all.” On top of being a successful designer, Tobi offers a comprehensive consulting service providing custom-tailored education, mentoring, and common sense tools to help companies and design firms improve their business.

I had the pleasure of taking Tobi on an antiques buying tour in Italy last month and was impressed by her desire to help other designers succeed and reach their maximum potential.  With her award-winning interior design projects being featured on television, blogs, and in several high profile shelter magazines, Tobi now shares her savvy for the business side of her life with clients who want to increase profits and achieve better results in their companies.
