Our Work

RTA takes the dreams of designers and makes them a reality through our skills and expertise in installing intricate wallcoverings, custom murals, one-of-a-kind fabrics, and leathers from all over the world. Our team loves to decorate cabinets, vitrines, and drawers with beautiful fabrics and fabulous trims. We finish silver closets and install silver cloth and also create custom bulletin boards and footstools. RTA  is known for expertise in custom upholstered benches, other furniture, and exquisite leather headboards.

Custom Hand-Painted Panels are one of our specialties. RTA was chosen by Jennifer and Mike Gracie, of Gracie’s New York Studio,  to install the entire Gracie Showroom in Dallas. Many of our installations can be seen in the showrooms, finest homes and high rises throughout Dallas, Texas. Additionally, we serve clients across the United States.

Choosing RTA as our installers was the best move I have ever made. I found RTA around five years ago and now they do projects for us all over Texas. They make my life so easy. Sandra is a dream to work with and the installers go beyond my expectations. They are extremely professional and very, very good at what they do.

We use costly materials in our design projects and can’t afford to worry about what our installers are doing. I can honestly say I have never had one problem with any of the wallpaper installations completed by the RTA team.

Interior Design is a challenging business and when you find a contractor who takes a lot of stress out of the project, well, I will never be going to anyone else for my installations. If you want happy clients, I highly recommend you contact RTA.
