Growing up in the French-influenced southwest Louisiana, Daryl W. Rogers acquired his appreciation for Continental antiques in his hometown of Opelousas. He later moved to Baton Rouge in the mid-sixties and began his career in the beauty industry. For thirty eight years he channeled his creative talents as an innovator in that field. Over the years, Daryl began helping friends and clients decorate their homes. He traveled to Europe seeking beautiful antiques and decorative items for their homes. After meeting Gary McDaniel, they formed a partnership and opened their antiques and interior design business that is now Rogers & McDaniel, Ltd.
