David Burress

David and Cheri Burress have lived in the upstate of South Carolina for more than 40 years. The Greenville area is where they met, raised their children and have been involved in church and various community organizations. They have a passion for organizations that serve those who struggle with life, organizations like The Dream Center of Pickens County, Miracle Hill Ministries and Connie Maxwell Children’s Home. They love adoption, standard poodles and living in the country. They know how it feels to survive cancer, to lose someone you love, and to weather personal storms. They also know the joy of a deep faith, strong family roots and a good hearty laugh! They have six grown children, three grandchildren and a large, local extended family.

Relationships, whether in their personal lives or in business are what they value most.

In 1994 David and Cheri began a business selling and installing custom plantation shutters. It wasn’t long before they added other window treatment options to their product lines. These include blinds, shades, exterior shutters, bahama shutters, custom drapery and drapery hardware. In keeping with technology and innovation, they have continued to expand with window treatment motorization, certified child and pet-safe products, using suppliers with sustainable resourcing, offering a selection of eco-friendly “Greenguard Indoor Air Quality” products, and integrating currently trending design elements.

From the very beginning, David and Cheri have worked together as a team, each bringing their own area of specialty to every business transaction in a personal way.

30 Years

With 30 years as professionals in this industry, David & Cheri measure each
job with precision and accuracy. They assess each window, its casing and trim to determine the most attractive and functional installation method. They carefully record each detail and review them with the client and with the supplier to make sure they show up on installation day with the correct product and the perfect fit! Having installed many thousands of window treatments over the years, David brings experience and expertise to every installation!

David has designed a line of exterior and bahama shutters. After using other exterior shutter suppliers, he realized that finding an exterior shutter that was both architecturally beautiful and durable was nearly impossible. He now has an expansive selection of styles, finishes, and materials to offer. He can accent any exterior home style and provide years of low maintenance architectural beauty!

Cheri’s education in Interior Design uniquely qualifies her as a window treatment design consultant. With an eye for balance, color, and design she brings a professional perspective to every appointment. Having established dynamic relationships with “to the trade” resources, she keeps a fresh collection of trending fabrics, styles and hardware to give your home its very best look.

​When Cheri arrives for a design & measure consultation she will assess your home’s decor style, interior colors and design elements to make recommendations that will enhance your windows and the design of your room. She will discuss not only “form” but also “function.” How do you want your window treatments to operate? Will you be opening and closing them daily? Can you conveniently access them? Do you need privacy in this area? What level of light control and UV block do you need? Along with budget considerations, Cheri will make product, color and design recommendations that will meet all of your needs and help create the “perfect” look for your windows!

David and Cheri Burress are a team that brings you the best in every aspect of a window treatment purchase.

From design to installation, they work as a cohesive whole bringing efficiency, accuracy, expertise and personal service to you and your project.
