DUSTERH0FF INTERIORS are frequently
where the finest and most highly idealized type
of Interior Decorating is involved, as in some of
the finest churches and residences we.have finish
ed in the state.
The preference for" DUSTERH0FF INTER
IORS in such cases is due to the steadily growing
conviction that DUSTERH0FF INTERIORS rep
resent the highest standards of interior decorating.
It is due also in great measure to the feel
ing of security inspired by our policy
to do interior decorating of th finest qual
ity only and of such design and performance as
fo provide an exceptional value in DESIGN and
DURABILITY beyond the most xtreme requirement.
