Featured Customer | Copper Pendants Add Warmth to Dining Room Updates
Most remodeling plans focus on updates — bringing colors, appliances, fixtures, and furniture into a more modern age. For Ben, of Concord, Massachusetts, the complete remodel of his dining/kitchen area included a new Viking range and wainscoting plus new windows and insulation.

Happy Anniversary! Celebrating 10 Years of Vintage-Inspired Craftsmanship

Sometimes, the best ideas come when we least expect it. For Sean, who was in the midst of a mud room/bath addition in his Long Island home, the inspiration came in the middle of the night. Part of his decor for the new space included a sign reading To All Trains which is a nod to a train that infrequently rumbles by their backyard.
