Meet our Design Team

Valeta Pittman opened Halifax in 1984 and has been offering beautifully designed furniture and decorative Oriental rugs to customers in southwest Virginia and beyond ever since. Her area of expertise is in hand-woven decorative Oriental carpets and antique and semi-antique Persian rugs. “I love sharing my knowledge of Oriental rugs with my customers. Ask as many questions as needed—I want you to know that you can buy with confidence and trust at Halifax.” Halifax is a ten-year member of the Oriental Rug Retailers of America which promotes integrity, fairness and honesty in Oriental rug retailing.

Mary Jean R. Levin has a goal for residential interior projects: “to combine the clients’ tastes and treasures using the best design principles to achieve beautiful, comfortable and supportive environments for their lives.” She trained in the interior design program at Virginia Tech, where she was elected to Kappa Omicron Nu professional honor society, and with renowned Tidewater Virginia-designer Mildred Sheffield Stanger. An interior design consultant with Halifax for more the 14 years, Mary Jean’s areas of expertise include historic design, accessible design, and space.

Prudence Denton has been creating charming and comfortable spaces in homes around the country for over 35 years. “While staying within the client’s budget, working with existing things, and helping with the selection of additional pieces, my goal is always to provide a discerning eye and meticulous attention to detail.” Her result is a look that’s current yet timeless, timeless yet familiar, and truly a distinct and personalized environment that looks eclectic—collected and built over time. Prudence’s experience also includes accessory design, home staging, set design for theatre and television, and historical design for period museum rooms.
