Welcome to Razmataz Market and Design, established in 2005 by Chania Allen.
Chania was born in East Africa, grew up near London England and currently resides in Ontario, Canada most of the time and in St. Petersburg Florida, part of the time. Always a decorator at heart, Chania followed her dream, after raising her family, to return to college and become an Interior Decorator.
Chania’s business “Razmataz” was opened in 2005 based on her philosophy and principles that good design evolves, isn’t disposable, and can be achieved by anyone, on any budget. Making the best of a home’s features and architecture, Razmataz starts with timeless furnishings and fittings to create a simple, neutral and workable base, that compliments your house, budget and your lifestyle. Once the basics are in place, the fun begins with the addition of lively fabrics, rugs, curtains, art and accessories, vintage and ethnic bits, and your own treasures to make your home unique, fun and totally “YOU”. Razmataz is not about cookie cutter and “high design” and following the latest trends with disposable things. That’s just not the way Chania’s world or that of her clients function. She’s all about capturing the feel of a house and creating realistic, welcoming homes with well- made basics, lifelong purchases and adding a lot of charm and Razmataz along the way.
Over the years, after selling an absolute ton of home furnishings, Chania realized that many of the brands she purchased were ones she returned to time and time again because their products worked perfectly in the type of rooms she created. She decided decided to offer some of these favorite products online, so homeowners could shop from these great sources themselves with ease and from the comfort of home. The fabulous products from sources like Dash and Albert and Pine Cone Hill, and Sno of Sweden have become best sellers in the Razmataz Online Market because they meet all the criteria of that Razmataz looks for in designer goods, and that she would purchase for her clients and use in her own home. You will find a mix of natural fabrics, vibrant prints, simple classics, organic and handmade items, softness and shine, glam and basic, ethnic and Boho, and just the right amount of rumpled comfort.
