Interior designer fees

We are building a house and we were quote the fees of the designer. Is it normal for them to charge their hourly rate, and then on top of that get a percentage of your discounts? (generally with the designer retaining 50-70% of the supplies or trades).

Thanks in advance.

We were charged hourly rates and given a timesheet for her work. Why would they get a percentage of discounts? She was able to get us a discount on retail price at CB2 and ELTE.
