Last year, Tom, our Showroom Manager in Muskoka, had the privilege of working alongside a fantastic couple, and helping them make their dream retirement cottage a reality - a new build with rustic charm and bold drama.
Joined The Chervin Family In:
- 4 years in Engineering
- 3 years in Sales & Design
Previous Industry Experience:
- Graduated the Woodworking Tech program at Conestoga College
- 2 years in custom furniture making
I'm married, with two boys (6 & 9)
My design inspiration comes from local designers on big projects, Architectural Firms, trend-setters, clients and even social media
I love when I get to know the customer really well - those projects where we develop a new friendship and the clients are open to sharing their ideas and to me adding value throughout the process - everyone's happy at the end!
Current Personal Dream Design:
Painted blue (racoon fur colour); matte black metal accents; rustic reclaimed wood touches
Happy this fad is over:
Golden Oak and Mahogany look - but nothing really bothers me
Fishing (Pike, Bass, etc...), Hockey (playing and coaching), ice fishing & golfing
Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
Woodworking (custom furniture) and Hunting
Eggs - particularly omelettes
Foodie - I love everything!
Tom Would Rather...
For years, our cupboards have been a place of hiding for all the things we do not want our guests to see. Those days are over! With the proper styling, contents, and colours, open shelving can not only be a statement maker in your most used space, but it can also be functional.
