Out and About: Schneiderman’s New Lakeville Showroom

It’s finally Spring!   A season that so many of us start looking forward to not long after winter starts.  Partly because of somewhat warmer temps that let us know that patio time won’t be far behind, and partly because it’s a season of growth and renewal that feels optimistic and ripe with possibilities.

So I thought it would be fitting to dedicate our first post of Spring 2017 to a fresh and exciting new project that’s already well underway at Schneiderman’s.

After 32 years in Lakeville, over 20 of which were at our Juniper Path store, we’re very excited to be building our new 2-story Lakeville showroom – scheduled to open this spring!

The new showroom, located west of 35 on Kenyon Avenue, is larger and more modern than the space we were previously leasing, and we’re looking forward to the functionality, space, and visibility it will provide.

I had the opportunity to visit the site last week, and I snapped some pictures so that you could get a peek at our progress.

The showroom  is definitely impressive – all 112,000 square feet of it – with an exterior that beautifully combines clean lines, white contrasted against warm limestone, and glass.

Those windows, though.

And did I mention glass?  I know I did, but really.  All. Those. Windows.  They’re one of my favorite parts so far.

They’re so striking from the outside, and they provide a large dose of welcoming light once you’re inside the showroom.   I can imagine that they’ll be just as impressive lit up at night.

There are north and south windows, as well, that span both floors in the open stairwells, which adds even more light further back in the showroom.

Deck time.

Continuing that light and airy connection with the outdoors is the second floor outside deck – a first for our stores.

We’re excited to have this unique space to display our great selection of patio furniture!

The inside view.

The inside feels light and expansive, and the flooring will be a functional and interesting mix, including concrete and carpeting.

The walls will be a mix as well.  Most will be painted, but some will have more unique finishes like white brick or wallpaper.

And just how much paint does it take to paint a showroom of this size?  I don’t have an exact number, but let’s just say it’s a lot.

Chad chose 15 versatile neutrals from Hirshfield’s, and I’ll be sharing those colors with you in a future post, along with some inspiration for using some of the colors.

Other unique and interesting interior design details are in the works, and they will be more in evidence as the showroom progresses.

Filling it up.

As you can imagine, much thought and planning went into deciding what should fill the showroom once it’s completed.

Our dedicated (and busy) team has already completed much of that process, which means that some of the furniture is already waiting in the wings to make it’s Lakeville debut.

Ready for pick-up.

Part of the crew was working on the loading dock when I was there last week.

And I received this pic a couple of days later.  The dock looks like it’s ready for business!
