Meet Our designers
OUR DESIGN TEAM
Aaron Stark has been a part of the Fitterer’s Furniture family for nearly six years, starting with the delivery crew and doing repairs; later, Aaron joined the sales team, became our resident mattress expert and now works in design as well! Wearing many hats, and all of them well, Aaron is an experienced and knowledgeable member of our team.
Though Aaron is new to the design team, he has worked in sales for five years and enjoys helping people create beautiful spaces. When ask about his influences and favorite styles, Aaron put an emphasis on variety.
“ I love rustic and western furniture, but I am very eclectic so I love a little of everything.”
Eclectic style and a customer first attitude, Aaron is a great designer to work with if you’re looking for ideas that represent you – no matter your style.
“I love a variety of styles. I just love helping create ideas for each individual that I work with.”
Aaron and his wife Amanda, who also works in the store, came to Ellensburg to attend CWU about 12 years ago. Coming from smaller towns, Aaron and Amanda fell in love with Ellensburg and have been here ever since.
“The people are very nice and downtown has lots to do. It’s a great community that we feel we can raise a family in.”
Aaron grew up in a large family himself, as the oldest of six children. His parents have been small business owners for over 30 years, allowing him to understand and become familiar with working and helping build up a business.
With family being very important to him, Aaron spends most of his time outside of work visiting his family and taking care of his 14 month old son. He enjoys Barbecuing, video games and being a Dad!
