Our Mission- Enhancing the quality and beauty of life through innovative designs®
DecoTeak® EcoDecors® CoastalVogue® and Design By Intent® are the brands of E&T Horizons. We are a certified female owned in Melbourne on the Space Coast of Florida. We established our company with several core values that we continue to operate by:
- Market leading designs and innovations
- Unsurpassed quality
- Old fashioned personal customer service
- Long term business relationships with all partners, including customers
- Sustainable sourcing and packaging
- Remaining humble, focusing on improving the lives of others via our products
- Giving back and donating to the community
You might be shocked to find out that when customers call our toll free line they are speaking directly to the female owner of the company, Terri Gelman. She retains this role because we believe so highly in the absolute necessity of maintaining a foundation of happy satisfied customers that keep coming back again and again to purchase our products.
Our historical focus has been on solid teak shower chairs & benches, bathroom vanities, mirrors, storage, and shelving. We source our teak products from small workshops in rural areas on the island of Java in Indonesia. Over the last ten years, as we have grown, so have our suppliers. This has provided important opportunities for local villagers. We have also been pleased as we have been able to help local entrepreneurs achieve their own dreams and goals through the cooperation with our company over the years.
We are involved in every step of the manufacturing process from lumber sourcing, cutting, kiln dry, carpentry, fine finishing, and surface coating. As part of the goals of sustainability we do not alter the woods natural look and quality with any chemical treatments. One of our pioneering innovations has been the EcoDecors® product line that accentuates the natural beauty of teakwood, complete with color variations and strong wood grains. Jeff Moore who is the brother of the owner, at times has spent up to four months of the year in Indonesia working on the ground floor with our manufacturers. Our quality initiative has been supported with a dedicated staff of local quality inspectors who tirelessly crisscross Java working with our suppliers at every stage of the manufacturing process.
We have now expanded our focus to include providing cutting edge designs from Europe for the Aging In Place market. We are filling the void for consumers that desire luxury design oriented shower and bathroom safety furniture, fixtures, & accessories. We are pleased that one of these products was recently named Bathroom Product of the Year by the leading industry magazine KBB (Kitchen and Bath Industry News) in their annual product innovation issue. We are proud to have been chosen as exclusive North American distributors for several leading European manufacturers of bathroom and shower safety products.
We are also proud to have been selected by a jury to be showcased within the American Association of Interior Designers’ Impact of Design Showcase at the KBIS (Kitchen & Bath Industry Show). We were selected for meeting the criteria of positively impacting human health and wellness combined with environmentally conscious products .
Positively impacting lives has been at the core of our mission since our inception. We have been gratified and humbled to read and hear the stories of gratitude from our customers telling us how the LiftAide® shower benches and shower stools have helped themselves or a loved one transition from the hospital to the house after a surgery. We are touched to read the thousands of reviews online thanking us for enhancing customers' lives through the combination of providing such functional beauty to their lives. Nothing could be more gratifying to us as business owners as hearing and reading all of these heartfelt stories of how we have positively impacted a person's life.
