Simplicity and luxury, a perfect blend
For María del Mar Echevería, luxury products and brands, like food, don’t require too many condiments. The beauty can be found in pure simplicity and that makes a world of difference.
María del Mar points out that in addition there are other important details that are the guarantees, the company that sells the product. In addition to how workers manipulate that material and care for the environment. “That’s why we look for companies that are consistent and that what they say they fulfill,” she explains.
At this moment, the owner of Mare Design Center indicates that she works with approximately 12 brands in her business, “this is because we do not like them to compete with each other. The idea is not quantity but quality “.
Echeverría points out that all clients are different, but mostly very smart and seek proper support and to avoid headaches down the road.
Lo que hacemos es tratar de guiarlos en el camino e irles quitando opciones para que no se confundan”, dice. Según Echeverría el costarricense no es una persona ostentosa, “aquí la gente lo que busca son soluciones a largo plazo y, siendo un país sostenible, donde la consciencia verde es realmente muy importante, como empresa buscamos opciones que no generen más basura y contaminación al planeta. Para mí la elegancia está en la simplicidad”, señala.
“We’ve specialized in ‘turnkey’ projects. Customers sometimes arrive for a specific item such as specific flooring or kitchen furniture, but little by little a relationship of trust grows and we end up supporting the whole project.”
For María del Mar, each client is different and our goal is to make sure they feel comfortable with what they are buying, because a house is a life project. What we sell are long-term solutions and that is why it is very important that the customer is happy not only with the quality of the product and technical aspects, but also with the final look or appearance.
According to Echeverría the Costa Rican is not an ostentatious person, “here people are looking for long-term solutions and, being a sustainable country where green awareness and sustainability has a stronger rooting, as a company we deliver options that do not generate more garbage and pollution to the planet. For me, simplicity begets elegance,” she says.
