MARIN ADVERTISERS SPEAK UP
DEBRA DUERING, OWNER OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN CARPETS
Architectural Design Carpets is a designer flooring showroom in the heart of Marin
County. We specialize in wool and nylon carpets, custom handmade area rugs,
hardwood floors and commercial flooring. We handpick our products from all over
the world to ensure that our clients not only receive the highest-quality flooring but
also the most beautiful pieces.
Briefly describe your business philosophy. I have known most of our clients ever
since I started my business out of my garage in the early ’90s — keeping those
friendships on a personal level has been more rewarding than anything else.
What is your competitive edge? I am very selective about the products we carry, and
whether I have known you for 20 years or two minutes, I will be honest about the
type of flooring that you need. Practicality, in my opinion, is always key when it comes
to the home.
What makes your work worthwhile? Getting that phone call that says our installers
did a beautiful job. I know it’s just flooring but when a fresh carpet is rolled into a
room or a hardwood floor is refinished, the home looks like it just got a makeover.
When our team receives pictures of the final product, that’s what makes it worthwhile.
Five years from now, what changes will your business experience? The past two
years we have slowly elevated our luxury lines and we want to keep expanding those
concepts. Working in the carpet industry for over 20 years, our team has never seen
such vibrant colors and silky textures.
What part of your business drives you crazy? You’re going to laugh, but all the carpet
emergencies — we probably get about one or two of these emergencies a month —
where something goes wrong. Of course, we’re able to rectify the situation but I have
to laugh because at the end of the day, it’s just carpet.

NIRMADA KAUFMAN, OWNER OF CRYOTHERAPY WHOLEBODY
Cryotherapy Wholebody is Marin’s premier, new, state-of-the-art and first-of-its-kind
Cryotherapy Center in Corte Madera, providing specialized treatments for Whole Body
Cold Therapy, Localized Cryotherapy and Cryofacials.
Briefly describe your business philosophy. Cryotherapy Wholebody provides effective
and leading-edge Cryotherapy Treatments that enable and empower people’s bodies to
heal and to create a new sense of overall well-being.
What is your competitive edge? Cryotherapy Wholebody has state-of-the-art
Cryotherapy equipment and highly effective Cryotherapy treatments. Our well-trained
staff is kind, friendly and very knowledgeable. The center is 100 percent eco-friendly
and is a truly relaxing environment to come and visit for your treatments.
Which product or service (that you offer) is your favorite? I love and use all of our
services. Whole Body Cryotherapy is systemically an anti-inflammatory treatment and
creates an increase in endorphins resulting in increased energy. The Cryofacials have
made my skin much younger and firmer and the localized treatments boost any body
part that is in need of a reduction of pain and inflammation, as well as letting go of extra
fat and cellulite.
What makes your work worthwhile? Every day at Cryotherapy Wholebody we witness
people getting out of chronic pain and inflammation from using our services. It is
extremely gratifying to contribute to improving people’s lives and bodies on a daily
basis. We love what we do and are so happy that we are available to service all of Marin.
