Jeff Ennis

Growing up in a family furniture business has been both rewarding and challenging. At a very young age, I started in the warehouse doing whatever needed to be done. I have had the opportunity to work in and learn all aspects of this business. I am a graduate of Boise state universally and have over 30 years experience in retail. The most rewarding part of my job here is to help make purchasing furniture a good experience here at Ennis.

I love working with people and helping them create a beautiful home. I think that it’s important to listen to people about their ideas and vision, or to help design a plan that layers existing furniture with new, coordinating pieces. Ennis provides us with so many resources and options that it makes a home interior design renovation easy to conceive, and fun to deliver! My family has lived in this area since the 1880’s, and we have had a family photography business in Boise, The Burns Studio, for almost 100 years. Boise is a very special place for me, and I am glad to be involved in making its homes even more beautiful!

As a self proclaimed furniture and oriental rug junkie, I do believe I have selected the right career. Growing up, my love for design was nurtured by the surrounding history and architecture of the Washington DC, New York and Southern California areas. My secondary education started at the University of Idaho, studying Architecture and fine art. I determined however, after several years that my first love was Interior Design. I was drawn to the furniture, textiles, rugs and colors that interior spaces offer and figured that my education to date would only strengthen my abilities. After much research I decided to attend the Maryland Institute College of art where I earned a bachelor of fine art in interior design. My senior thesis was to design and actually have built, a house in the Catskill region of New York for my parents. They live there to this day. While attending school, I did an internship with one of my professors who was also a prominent designer in the Baltimore area. I ended up working with him for almost 10 years, learning the whole time. During that time I also started my own business, with clients in Baltimore, DC and New York city. In The early 1990’s the economy in the Mountain states was experiencing great growth so I pulled up stakes and moved back to Idaho, where I have been for the last 20 years. As the Director of the Interior Design Department, I have been helping clients in the Boise region as well as California, Northern Idaho, Arizona and some of my original clients on the east coast for over 15 years. Each new job and every new client gives my work a new perspective keeping things fresh and interesting. I have loved every aspect of what I do for over 30 years and look forward to many more.

Valerie Allard

I was born and raised in Southern California, spent 14 years in Seattle, and now love calling Boise my home. After graduating from college with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Interior Design, I provided interior design services to residential clients, designed model homes for a major builder, and was a senior designer for commercial and hospitality projects. What I especially enjoy now is collaborating with home owners to define functional solutions and stylistic preferences that result in the creation of beautiful and functional environments that represent who they are, what they love, and where they have been. At Ennis Fine Furniture, it is my pleasure to serve in any capacity the customer needs from developing a cohesive look for the entire home, refreshing well-loved pieces, improving the space plan of a room, or adding the finishing touches that bring a room to life. I strive to work as a creative consultant, problem solver, time and cost savings service, and ultimately, a trusted adviser. Come into the showroom or give me a call and let’s see what we can achieve together.

Marie Drisco, Interior Designer

I am privileged to be able to combine my 20 years of creative design experience with the vast resources and products that Ennis Fine Furniture has to offer. My greatest joy in interior design is to help my clients create a space that reflects their personality, interests and style. I am familiar with the changing needs of busy families as well as empty nester’s. Decorating your home is a process that begins with having an initial conversation that helps me get to know you. We will talk about how you and your family use the space, what items you want to keep and your overall goals for the project. With that information, I will create a floor plan and make suggestions for furnishings and accessories that will inspire you. My commitment to you is to make your decorating journey fun and enjoyable that results in a space you love to come home to.
