“My partners and I were in the process of a restaurant build-out. We traveled to NYC and Boston looking for the anchor furniture pieces that would set the tone for our vision. We had a particular vibe in mind for the space and were not quite able to find the pieces until we stumbled across Casabella while driving to a meeting on Cape Cod. The store was beautifully appointed and we immediately saw some furniture that would be a great fit for our vision. Then we met Michele and Shannon. When we shared our concept they really listened to what we were trying to accomplish. Not just the beauty, but the functionality as well.
Now that I think about it, the pieces that they selected were always the ones that our customers noticed – I think my favorite thing they found for us was the lighting. Not only was it unique and beautiful but it really set the ambiance in the space. There was one piece of furniture at Casabella that we loved–Michele redesigned it and had it built out as a wall unit that housed our server/POS system. It turned out fantastic!
There were so many times that Michele and her team drove up to the restaurant —which was over an hour away —with van loads of accessories and finishing touches for us to try out in the space. They did that again and again until we had everything we needed.
The restaurant was a huge undertaking and we worked with a lot of people Most were very nice, but I would say working with Casabella was the best part of the project. Michele is a very talented lady–she not only has a passion for what she does but she really cares that you get what you want. Many designers don’t listen to what you want but Michele and Shannon heard us on vision, execution and budget.
To homeowners, I would say that in any type of design project there are so many decisions to make. The Casabella team will take the time to understand your vision, really listen to you, and in a non-forceful way take the burden off your plate. They’ll present you with the most amazing things – pieces you will love. Nothing they show you is mediocre. Needless to say, we now consider them our friends, and we’ve referred many people to Casabella.”
