Mary started off on Wall Street but years later found her true passion - interior design. She began her design career by first owning a window treatment franchise and then moving into retail interior design after clients requested more services. Owning a brick and mortar allowed Mary to learn the wholesale process and navigate to the best possible vendors. Over the last few years, she has focused on her "to the trade" business and enjoys meeting and helping designers all over the country become more successful. No matter the method of communication, Mary loves to help others achieve their success.

Lori is our energetic claims specialist who strives to get a positive outcome for each and every inquiry. Simply put, she has a passion for helping others. Born and raised in Mahwah, NJ (Northern NJ), Lori grew up with a love for art – creating it, designing it, painting it, enjoying it. That has taken her career in many directions from faux finishing and color consulting, to home staging, interior design, and presently to Coco To The Trade. Today, Lori is passionate about helping designers with claims and ensuring that orders arrive safely and beautifully into each space. Her top priority is to help designers achieve their ultimate goals by providing knowledge, guidance, and communication for each claim. When not working on claims Lori loves gardening, painting, and photography. She hikes every day in the Ramapo Mountains with her gorgeous Chocolate Lab, Karma, and takes occasional yoga classes. She loves entertaining and has cocktail parties, chili parties and bbq’s throughout the year, leaving the holidays as the biggest spark with live music and a very potent first cocktail made by the host herself, guests’ choice.
