Murphy-Long Design has been a downtown El Dorado institution for 20 years. Founded in 1991 as Sydney Murphy Design by El Dorado local Sydney Murphy, the business began as Murphy worked in designing and decorating local homes and organizations.

While the MLD logo is a hallmark of beautiful and distinctive home furnishings and high caliber home design, both Murphy and Long believe the true strength of their business is not just their retail or design work. "This is a ministry, and something we both feel called to do," says Sydney Murphy. "This allows us to bring beauty and joy into people's lives as well as their homes."
