Description

Urban Colony is a boutique showroom that is really about inspiration. The first impression you get when you step inside this “small on space but big on style” store is sophistication at affordable prices. Because so many of the items are custom designs by Robert Wylie, you will see new pieces every time you visit. The emphasis is on creating a vision for your space. Each new client may ask for a free initial consultation from Robert, where he will come to their home or office and help with design ideas, custom furnishings and solutions to decorating dilemmas. The result is a completely personalized experience to fit each person’s needs and individual tastes.

Looking for an intelligent and savvy intern to train in showroom sales. The internship will be at our upscale custom furniture showroom located inside the LA MART in Downtown LA. Our owner, Robert Wylie, is also a seasoned interior designer and the intern selected will occasionally help with 3D design for these jobs. Hours will vary week to week based on intern's schedule and ability to complete assignments quickly and efficiently. The ideal person will be available 2-3 times a week during our showroom hours from 9 am - 4 pm and occasionally on weekends during special events. Compensation is possible after a three month probationary period, and will be discussed at that time.
