JUST IN TIME for its 10-year anniversary, European furniture hotspot BeDESIGN unveiled its massive new space, a multi-floor, 22,000-square-foot showroom — the largest of its kind in Texas.

Co-owners and life partners Adrian Duenas and Marcelo Saenz welcomed more than 200 clients, friends and industry pros to the West Alabama store, which carries B&B Italia, Ligne Roset, Fendi Casa and dozens of other sought-after European lines. Guests enjoyed touring the three-story space, and lined up to congratulate the couple while sipping French rosé and enjoying bites from MAD and Musaafer (truffle-and-cumin macarons?! Say no more).

On the first floor, Divisi Strings serenaded partygoers as they arrived; upstairs, Lady Lauranza turned the volume up with lively renditions such as "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." The indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge beckoned everyone to the third floor, and the picture-perfect skyline views did not disappoint.

‘Culture of Service and Accountability’ Supports Mission of Orion EMS

Gerard O’Brien, President/CEO & Founder, and Sumi Patel, Vice President

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
