Revive Redesign
Refresh Your Nest is the motto of Revive Redesign. Small changes can have a BIG impact ! Starting with what you already have on hand, Loretta provides inspiration and ideas for re-envisioning your home’s space. Whether it’s visually enlarging a small space or making a large room cozy and inviting, I advise on how to re-mix your current furnishings and furniture and give you a plan to add new life to your rooms.

Loretta can help you incorporate family heirlooms into a contemporary space and provide ideas for showcasing special collections or mementos. Sometimes a few new elements are all that is needed for that final touch to truly make your home your vision of an ideal getaway and a tranquil sanctuary.
Glass Orchid Studio’s primary service is custom stained glass and restoration of stained glass panels. Using stained glass instead of curtains as an option for privacy seems to be what people request the most, since with glass you still have light from the outdoors. We also have finished pieces at our studio, where we offer classes in the art of leading or foiling.

Other services offered at Glass Orchid Studio are custom made tiles, glass painting and fusing. In 2001 Cindi went to Sienna Italy to learn under Master Alberto Positano at the Studio D’Arte to learn the art of stained glass painting with vitreous paints and graduated in May 2009 from Architedctural Interior Design.

Pala Brothers Furniture
In 1953, the Pala brothers ventured into the furniture business with a small brick building on Kirkwood Highway in Wilmington, Delaware.

Their roots were in the bar and restaurant business. Pala's Cafe is still located today on Union Street in Wilmington, Delaware.

They started with furniture brands that no other stores wanted. They worked hard, focusing on the customer and always striving to give the best in customer service and pricing.

That same focus can be seen today over 50 years later. Pala Brothers strive for customer satisfaction. There is now one difference. We handle the best furniture manufactures available. That small brick building where Pala Brothers started in 1953 is still our only location, but there are now 18,000 square feet attached to it.
