After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rhode Island College I pursued a career in the Home Improvement & Furnishings Industry. Over the past 12 years I have had extensive exposure to major name brand manufacturers, and have maintained a strong knowledge of current trends. I have decorated several homes from older, small and mid-sized cottages, ranches, colonials, and farmhouses to grand scale, new construction, and open concept waterfront properties. My commercial projects include lobbies/welcome areas, church offices, school faculty rooms, local airport military lounge, and president’s residence at Rhode Island College. I specialize in assisting clients with selecting custom fabrics and finishes, identifying wood species, and coordinating styles of furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and window treatments across a range of economically priced to high end. Other aspects of decorating include accessory and area rug recommendation, as well as paint color and lighting style suggestions.

We just needed to let your organization know the wonderful person you have representing Cardi’s furniture as an interior decorator. Her name is Kimberly Mazza and we couldn’t possibly find enough good words to describe the positive impact she had on our recent condo decorating task.
We recently moved from living our entire lives in single family hames to a condo. The interior of the condo we bought was beautiful but unfortunately none of the paint colors went well with any of our furniture. Overcome with the difficulties of moving, struggling to make decisions regarding wall and trim colors and trying to learn the optimum process flow to transform the condo we decided to enlist the help of an interior decorator. This was new and scary territory for us. Fortunately Kimberly was on duty the night we decided to go to Cardi’s for furniture and help. In every aspect of what a customer would expect from a service provider Kimberly far exceeded all expectations. Her recommendations were right on. In addition she sensed the importance of incorporating our heirloom items into the décor without compromising the overall quality of the eye appeal. On a personal level she is absolutely wonderful to work with on a project of this nature. She is excited about her job, knowledgeable about decorating concepts, always engaged, always pleasant. A great combination of characteristics that ultimately reflect positively on your organization.
We are ecstatic with the outcome and we feel most fortunate that she happened to be on duty the night we strolled into the store looking for the right person to help us make sense of this project. Kimberly was indeed the right person.

I wanted to give a review of my working relationship with Kim Mazza. I have been purchasing furniture at Cardi's for over 28 years and have been more than thrilled with my purchases and service. I cannot wait to work with Kim again!!!!!!
I never realized that you offer designer services but was fortunate enough to have stumbled upon that when I came in recently to purchase a new dining room set. I was lucky that Kim was the salesperson who helped me and she suggested the service. I am so thrilled!
First, you have a gem in Kim - she is so enthusiastic, she knows the store very well and what you offer. She is not only personable and knowledgeable but she cares and it shows. When I first arrived, I had seen a beautiful dining room set on-line but was not 100% sure. Kim came to my house, did measurements, looked around the store for other options and then when I came in again she spent quality time with me so I felt comfortable and excited about my purchase. I felt it was a great investment to hire Kim as my designer and I was right! We had such an amazing connection, she was thorough, she gave me ideas, she looks for ideas and we spent time not only in the store looking at accessories but also on-line. I actually felt I participated in the process and it was so much fun!
The end result is OUTSTANDING - I am beyond thrilled and could never had gotten to this beautiful room without Kim. She is my go-to girl at Cardi’s (in fact I was just there the other day to purchase a coffee table from her) and I am excited to hire her next year to do my bedroom, then my office, then my living room!
I appreciate Kim and am thrilled with Cardi's and my experience not only over the years but most recently with Kim!
I am more than happy for you to make this public as a reference and/or if you want me to provide a me to provide a more detail reference - I will.
