Carolina Rustica Sells to AIDP, IDS, ASID, IFDA, ALA, NAHB and other trades

Carolina Rustica has a wealth of experience working with valuable trade customers. We are flexible in our ability to customize a solution for you and your clients. Unlike larger furniture or lighting retailers, we have no "set way" of working with designers, architects, and builders. What works for you, works for us. As an IDS Trade Partner in Design (Titanium Level) and AIDP Business Partner, we are extremely sensitive to the challenges AND opportunities that the internet provides both you and your clients.


With access to over 75 major brands of lighting, furniture and accessories, we are happy to offer our products to designers at trade prices. Our savings to you can be greater than purchasing direct from manufacturers, in many cases, due to our volume discounts. If you do not see a particular brand listed, please contact us as we have the ability to add additional manufactures easily due to our outstanding reputation and credit.


Hekman and Century Furniture are the latest additions to our list of high quality vendors. Other fine lines offered include Kincaid, Charleston Forge, Lexington Home Brands, Currey & Company, Sarreid, Palecek, Fine Art Lamps, Hubbardton Forge, BarcaLounger, Hinkley Lighting, Wesley Allen, Johnston Casuals, Bauer International and Spring Air (mattresses).
