Seville Home in Leawood
Owner Stuart Wilkins talks truth, trust and taste in beautiful home fashion
Tell us about Seville Home and what you offer.
We’re a 16-year-old, family-owned, designer-led home furniture and fashion destination that’s carved out a remarkable and enduring place in the greater Kansas City market. From handcrafted sofas and sectionals to the finest tables, rugs, bedrooms, offices and outdoor, we’re all about helping make your home both beautiful to look at and wonderful to live in.
Homeowners have many choices when it comes to furniture and home fashion. How does Seville Home stand out among the competition?
It really starts with core business values. We are a Kansas City family. We live here. Relationships matter most. Truth, trust and a refined taste anchor who we are as people and as a business. As national retail furniture brands have moved into and out of the market, we’ve stayed true to our customers and ourselves. Our designers, for example, are truly talented and seasoned professionals. You’ll meet them on our floor every day of the week. Their expert assistance is always offered at no additional charge, including in-home consultations. That’s only one example, but our entire approach is that simple, pure and powerful.
What surprises first-time Seville Home visitors the most?
It’s not really one thing. Rather, it’s the wave of relief they feel upon realizing our tremendous differences: in our products, people and approach. Many are surprised by our size. We offer exceptional custom order advantages, but also have an ever-changing and substantial collection available to purchase and have delivered tomorrow. For other visitors to Seville Home, the surprise comes from understanding luxurious home furnishings are actually within reach. Exceptional quality and enduring value work together here.
What inspires you when deciding what to feature at Seville Home?
First, we love working directly with family-owned, hands-on furniture makers. We are kindred spirits and value the same things. In turn, we’re able to bring our customers the finest, handcrafted, unique home furnishings available. As a true designer-led team, we focus on beautiful, on-trend, refined styles. From traditional to transitional to contemporary, we cover every room and every taste but always with an eye on lasting fashion and function. That’s where “Beautiful to look at and wonderful to Live in” comes from.
What specifically is happening at Seville Home in August?
Our semi-annual July Clearance Event just ended and was a tremendous success. In turn, August features our Fall Preview Event. New creations are arriving daily as the latest pieces emerge from many months of designing and crafting. To welcome the new season, we’re offering up to 25 percent off all in-stock items and 20 percent off all custom orders with very few exceptions. Of course, our Labor Day Savings Event at the end of August is also an annual customer favorite. Can I also share we never mark prices up simply to present the appearance of a mark-down sale? Seville Home savings are authentic. No gimmicks, ever. And when we talk about in-home delivery, we don’t mean dropping things off in your driveway. We mean white-glove service that places your purchases exactly where you want them and even helping rearrange your existing pieces in the process. That’s another Seville Home difference, not just in August, but always.
