Modlux Interiors

In 2016, Desiree Barton asked “what if I could open my own interior design, drafting, and retail business right here in Campbell River?” Community Futures thought why not?

Desiree is a successful Interior Design graduate with significant work experience at a construction company in the Comox Valley. It is through her work experience sourcing various products for home builders that a gap in the marketplace was identified and the idea of Modlux was born.

Today the company offers a full range of residential drafting and interior design services. From consultations to complete home packages no project is too large or small. They can work with the most frugal to luxurious budgets and make your space a place that you are proud to call your own.

When first starting my small retail/interior design business, I approached 3 different banking institutions to acquire start-up financing for my project. Even though my credit was impeccable and I had savings of 30% to put towards the business, I was met with “no chance”, “not likely”, and “we can give you 20% of what you are looking for”. My accountant recommended I speak with Community Futures Strathcona to see if we could work together. I had several meetings where we worked through the details of what I was looking for, specifics of my business (from vision to operations), and with that information they put together a spreadsheet of financial projections which I still use today. They were kind, courteous, and as excited about my project as I was. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for financial aid to see their dreams come true! Mine certainly has thanks to them!
