Easton, Md. — Decorating Den Interiors, North America’s largest home furnishings and interior design franchise company, announced that Charla Traugott, owner of C&J Interiors of Montgomery Texas, achieved Chairman’s Circle status for being in the top ten franchises in the U.S. for sales in 2018. The company also is celebrating its 50th anniversary throughout the year.
The Chairman’s Circle awards are the first we announce each year,” said Jim Bugg, Jr., president and CEO. This recognition was started by the late James S. Bugg, Sr., who served as company chairman from 1984 until his death in 2015.
“These award winners exemplify how our company has grown from primarily a drapery company to a full-service interior design company with access to a broad range of home furnishing suppliers,” Bugg said. “These owners provide tremendous leadership for our nearly 300 design professionals across the U.S and Canada. They are award-winning designers and excellent business owners.”
“Being in the Chairman’s Circle in this 50th anniversary year is very special,” said Traugott. “Not many companies stay in business for 50 years and I am very proud to be part of one that has achieved that status.”
Traugott has been in business since 2014 and this is the fourth consecutive year, she has earned this prestigious award.
