While Vail has spent decades becoming a world-class destination for international visitors, Slifer Designs has established itself as a leader in residential interior design. This year marks 35 years for Slifer Designs — it’s a true milestone for what is now one of the most renowned interior design firms in the United States.

A good story is what makes history meaningful. It was 1983 when Beth and Rod Slifer were a newly married couple starting their life in Vail. Beth, a marketing executive, came from Chicago to this quaint mountain town and definitely needed to keep her mind busy.

A friend who owned the penthouse at the Lodge at Vail asked Beth, who was known for her great taste in fashion and furnishings, to help him decorate in order to expedite its sale. Once Beth finished, it sold in two weeks.

That’s how it all started — a favor asked by a friend, and true talent discovered.

Over the next decade, Slifer Designs added staff and quickly grew to be the preeminent interior design company in the Vail Valley, with showrooms in the Town of Vail and Denver. After purchasing a 20,000 square foot warehouse just west of Vail in Avon, Slifer Designs became a full service design firm. Their team of dedicated white glove professionals receives, inspects, and installs every object that makes its way into a Slifer Designs home.

In the years that followed, Slifer Designs started to take on projects coast to coast and internationally, and is now one of the most reputable firms in the nation with award-winning residential and commercial interior design. The company has developed an unshakable reputation in the industry, well known for working with architects, builders, sub-contractors, vendors, and clients alike to create an environment where beautiful designs come to life.

The element that truly makes the difference is the Slifer Designs team. From the front desk to the interior designers to the warehouse crew, Slifer Designs has refined a streamlined process that gives customers the highest level of design experience, professionalism, and service.

“With 70 percent of our projects coming from repeat business, it’s fair to say that our people make the difference,” shares Beth Slifer. “Customers come back again and again to work with our team.
