Sue

Owner/Finance/Human Resources

As the head of “anything to do with money”, Sue has always been drawn to the black and white aspects of accounting, viewing it as a logic puzzle asking to be solved. Sue enjoys problem solving, connecting dots, and performing business analysis. She can wrangle any spreadsheet and her biggest joy is when the bottom line balances to the penny. She was self taught and now has over three and a half decades of account and finance experience under her belt. Sue feels a deep responsibility to her colleagues, channeling her maternal instincts, in an effort to ensure that everyone at Vogue is treated fairly and possess every benefit and opportunity. Day to day you can find her playing tennis, watching tennis, spending time with her (tennis) friends, baking, taking care of her family, and obsessing over her granddaughter, Quincey.

He leads with a “no limits” attitude, focusing on continuous improvement with the end goal of always exceeding our client’s expectations in design, quality and service.

About Vogue Furniture

We are a team of craftspeople, designers, architects and visionaries. We place quality artistry and service ahead of everything else in our drive to do things differently and better.

Our Process

OUR DNA

Imagine a time with no internet. No cellphones or tablets. No Instagrams or tweets. That’s where our story began. It’s where our DNA to do things differently was created. Born from the union of knowledgeable hands and a restless imagination, our philosophy is both old school and simple. To this day, that same strand of tumultuous and imaginative DNA is woven throughout our team of managers, designers and craftspeople. We remain motivated by continuously evolving; testing our skills and pushing the envelope on everything we create.

As a family run company founded by lead designer Greg Bartlet, Vogue is led by strong ideals that have remained at our core for forty years and this entrepreneurial spirit continues to resonate through the culture of the organization. Passion driven by craft. It’s our way of achieving pride in workmanship and superior results that are lacking elsewhere today.

not a factory

Our purpose is deliberate – to deliver woodwork that is unparalleled in our industry and design something meaningful in our world. Something that you can see, touch and feel. As you walk through our 45,000 facility, you’ll notice a lack of robotic assembly lines or computer-controlled machinery. Instead, you’ll see an inviting and collaborative workspace featuring custom, individual workspaces for our managers, designers, artists and craftspeople who build projects from start to finish.

no limits

With no limits in materials, technique, scale or style, we preserve our unique integration of technology and tradition that stand the test of time. Our personal design services are unique, collaborative and include delivering hand drawn and photorealistic renderings as part of the thoughtful design process. Our craftspeople and artists are ready to create your furniture, custom millwork, and metalwork featuring sustainable materials from around the world, including exclusive finishes from Italy. Finally, our project managers are stewards for your build from start to finish and ensure a product delivered on time and on budget. It’s time to break the mold and make your space as individual as you. We are Vogue Furniture.
