Sometimes we have the privilege of revisiting a project as a family grows and changes and the unfinished spaces of a home are ready to be planned and developed. This was the nature of a recent opportunity at a house on Occom Pond, where a family of Dartmouth alumni and current Dartmouth students discovered they needed more space for family and friends to feel welcome.
As part of turning a client’s vision into reality, we often find ourselves creating custom designs and fabricated furnishings. This can be custom cabinetry, hand-loomed rugs, and, of course, designing and fabricating bespoke upholstery and textiles in our workrooms.
“The way I work is I like to get a picture of something, then back into the details. That’s how Aharon works. I would ask him a question and 15 minutes later, I knew all about the counter surfaces or types of tile I was considering. That’s what I need. It’s extremely valuable to find someone who is willing to spend that kind of time helping me learn. When a contractor comes in, he naturally wants to know where you want something, but the project at my house expanded to the point where I needed more guidance and support.
