”I enjoy creating timeless environments that combine contemporary with transitional interiors.
Until about six years ago, Na-Ann Poole (named after her two grandmothers: Nancy and Annice) grew up in the historic college town of Oxford, MS, home of the “Ole Miss Rebels.” For 11 years, she was the owner of Na-Ann’s Interior Design & Custom Framing, a successful interior design, furniture, gift shop, and framing business in Oxford’s historic square.
During this time, she provided designs for everything from model homes for builders, to skyboxes at the Old Miss football Stadium and weekend condos and RVs, popular for Old Miss fans due to a lack of hotel rooms in the area. She purchased an existing frame shop and gained expertise in framing the original art she sold in her store.
After eleven years of running her business solo, she knew it was time to expand to the “big city” and moved to Nashville, Tennessee where she spent five years with Bradford’s Interiors of Nashville, a high-end furniture retailer. Her outgoing personality and follow-up skills enabled her to excel in sales as her interior design abilities expanded. But the store was 127 years old and preparing to close so Na-Ann decided to set her sights on new horizons.
Recently married, she and her husband, had always wanted to move to Florida. Their three children were grown. Friends in Nashville suggested Naples as the only place to be. Her research led her to the Clive Daniel Home website. She knew this was the only place she wanted to work. Within 14 days, she had a plane ticket and an interview with the store’s general manager.
Na-Ann is now the Clive Daniel Home, Resident Top Designer at CDH Naples, where she lives, works, and plays. Excited about her future at Clive Daniel Home, Na-Ann and her husband are delighted to call themselves Floridians.
