Furniture stores have furniture, but not always the level of design expertise you deserve.
Interior designers offer design services, but don’t carry many preferred brands of fine furnishings.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have the best of both worlds, all in one place?
As an offshoot of the former Plunkett Home Furnishings, John Plunkett Interiors is a luxury design firm offering both concierge interior design services for projects of all sizes, and direct access to renowned home furnishing brands, at competitive prices. Designed to make the decorating process more seamless, convenient, and value-driven for busy, professional people, it is rare to find so many possibilities under one roof.
So, if you are looking for a design firm that listens carefully and cares deeply about your quest for the perfect home, we can help.



We are artists, designers, architects and builders… helpful guides, organizers, collaborators and synthesizers who enjoy creating comfort and beauty for others.
Valerie Plunkett received her Interior Design degree from Butler University. That aspiration was nurtured through years of worldwide travel, and growing up in a home where welcoming and entertaining guests was an artform.
After attending Loyola Academy, John Plunkett received a business degree from St. Mary University. His extended education and real passion come from lifelong immersion in the converging worlds of interior design, architecture, and building.
Together they mentor a team of highly  talented design professionals who are at their best when bringing clients’ design visions to life.
