Full-Service Interior Design & Manufacturing STudio in Dallas

Many interior decorators wish they had at their disposal a complete workshop filled with craftspeople skilled in woodworking, metalwork, drapery, upholstery and finishing that could help bring to fruition the visions they have for their clients. Nelson J. Nelson does, and for the past 12 years he has led the artisans at Emmanuel Design Group (EDG)—who hand carve, forge and craft each bespoke item—on a journey from a design and manufacturing studio to one that now designs and decorates entire rooms and million dollar homes.

Nelson’s career began in a small retail furniture and décor gallery. While it was enjoyable, Nelson’s dreams and vision for the future were much bigger. During the fall of 2003, he set out to create a company with a spirit, enthusiasm and mindset that would allow him to venture into new territories for the furniture business. Nelson wanted to create furniture and designs that would be truly unique. He surrounded himself with the very best artisans and started building original designs.

This garnered him the attention of local designers, including Dallas’ own Donna Moss, who starred in Donna Decorates Dallas on HGTV. Moss invited Nelson to be a part of the show for more than half of the 13 episodes.

Nelson’s notoriety expanded  beyond the boundaries of the Metroplex as well as beyond the confines of simply manufacturing bespoke pieces for a room. Today, clients from around the nation request the Nelson Nelson look from floor to ceiling. “We have the unique ability to create not just a piece but the design for an entire home where every element is crafted to fit the form and function of the home and tailored to each client’s needs and lifestyle,” Nelson says. “Everything we create is custom made to fit the personality of each client.”

Whether it is the company’s trademark Gothic look, with regal themes, spiritually inspired creations or the more modern stylistic spaces, EDG creates home interiors and custom furniture with modern sensibilities. Solid woods, lush fabrics and ornate metalwork give each piece and room a royal touch while retaining a welcoming feel.

Nelson is committed to providing every client with elegant interior designs, innovative ideas and quality furniture. EDG is a company where not only are the customers pleased with their purchase, but the craftspeople have the pleasure and satisfaction of creating one-of-a-kind, exquisite works of art.

A special thank you goes out to Galleria D'Arte Mentana Firenze for all their hard work and The Emmanuel Design Group for the loving care they put into each and every frame they have created for me. Happy Year everyone!! :)

Nelson, Jules and the rest of the team are not only exceptionally gifted artists, but they are a joy to work with. At every turn they will surpass expectations. I have been using them for over 15 years and the experience is always the same. Results far beyond what I imagined. They have amazed me with original designs, custom manufactured pieces, and modifications to my heirloom pieces. It's an incredible talent to bring a new look and new life to an existing item. Could not recommend Emmanuel more highly.

Emmanuel Design Group is our one stop shop. Not only do they do world class work they are kind, humble, and gracious people who are full of integrity and fun to work with. It just doesn't get any better than that. They have inserted their limitless creativity through most of our home, inside and out. The result, on every project, has gone far beyond out imagination or expectation - We believe this demonstrates how keenly they listen to our desires and dreams, and apply their highly unique talents to achieve the ultimate result. Because of this we will always use them on any project we have, no matter how small or large. Their works transcends time. As the days pass, we continue to fall more in love with out home, thanks to Emmanuel Design Group. They are truly one of a kind and we are blessed to know them and honored to experience their passion and their work as it manifests itself so well in our home.

This is the second time I have used this decorator. I find his idea fresh and out of the box, but within my taste and budget. He is willing to hear feedback and meet your needs. Always professional and courteous, as are his staff. Just a phone call away and make you feel like you are his priority.

Love working with Emmanuel Design team!

Can 5 stars be the highest recommendation? I guess it’ll have to be for this review! I have worked with several interior decorators but once I laid my eyes on Emmanuel Design Group work nothing I had satisfied! My first appointment was no more than an introduction and tour of Nelson Nelson’s facility. A few weeks later he took a look at my house and at my very next appointment Nelson has the new vision on 3D. It was more than I could have ever dreamed. It was perfect!!! His intuitiveness and careful attention to what had already been done in my home was carefully blended with a new vision. The transaction was smooth with careful attention to every detail. Phone calls and emails were frequent and returned immediately despite being a sought out, in high demand designer. How EDG stays on budget, deadline, and keeps communication crystal clear is a gift of this designer!

Well…to being the experience we had with Emmanuel Design Group was more than just business. They became our extended family. Jewels and Nelson gave their heart and soul to the Bontke project and we were blown away by the outcome of everything. The furniture was a masterpiece, purely artwork as well as practical and comfortable. When we have company, they stop and drool over everything and say how beautiful our home is. I have to say Nelson’s walks in high gifting of the Lord and he is completely a vessel flowing the vision and heart of the Lords and is able to bring a home to life.

Nelson did an amazing job designing the interior décor of my new home.  I wanted an old Hollywood glamour crossed with clean lines and he totally nailed it! I have had so many compliments! I would definitely use Nelson again and would HIGHLY recommend him! Plus as a bonus – he is SO much fun to work with!!

Nicki Loper - January 2009
Emmanuel Design Group has done several jobs for me. I first met Nelson in 2009 while building my house. He was truly a blessing to me in that I knew what style I liked but struggled at making selections. He came in and was with me every step of the way. From picking out lighting fixtures and flooring to what should the color of the toilets be. Since the build Nelson has come back numerous time with his design team to add special details to my house to make it a home for me and my family. I highly recommend Emmanuel Design Group in any home related jobs. They are extremely talented and their style and vision will blow you away.
