Bonnie Conn

Bonnie is a graduate of Stephen’s College and the University of Missouri. She has experience at Sprintz Furniture in Nashville for nine years and Birmingham Wholesale for nine years. Her clients are her top priority and it is her goal to see that each project reflects the client’s personality. Color is important and she tries to stay away from the color of the day, but encourages clients to incorporate colors that make them feel good. Many clients are visual and find it difficult to make color and pattern decisions. This is when she wants them to have faith and trust in what she pulls together – a sale is only as good as the client’s approval.

In my 25 years of experience (16 years of which were with Thomasville Furniture), I have always been excited about the process of getting to know my clients and their family—even the most beloved, pets. Upon the completion of each project, I am delighted to know that the space is more beautiful, more functional and I am wiser from listening to your needs. You’re never too old to learn! I am an ASID, Allied Member and an Auburn University Alumni.
