MODA Floors & Interiors
Dean Howell and his wife Janice are the owners of MODA Floors & Interiors. The business was started in 2003. Prior to starting a flooring business, Dean worked in the corporate world for 18 years for The Trane Company and Home Depot. Dean held sales and marketing roles at these companies of increasing responsibility. His corporate service took them abroad, where Dean and Janice spent seven years working in communities throughout Belgium, China, France and the Netherlands. This experience deepened their love for architecture, building materials and interior design.
After fulfilling corporate career goals, the Howells settled in Atlanta and researched their next challenge. Interested in the idea of owning a small business, they discovered an opportunity to enter the floor and window covering business. Their corporate business experience coupled with their natural interest in interior design, made the opportunity the perfect fit.
When defining their business, Dean and Janice drew inspiration from the time they had spent overseas. Captivated by European design, architecture and materials, they wanted their business to express cutting edge style and European flair. “Moda”, the Italian word for fashion, personifies the business focus on staying a step ahead in design, installation and service.Register
