About

I appreciate the support of the local community and the customers and clients that come from far and wide to visit the store and seek out our services.  Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with, it would be my pleasure.    

                                                  - Louise Rogers, Owner

Opening Surroundings felt like a natural extension to our first retail endeavor, Rogers Gallery.  For three decades my husband Ben and I have offered custom framing, fine art and installation to companies and individuals.  Many corporate projects included other design elements which logically led us to opening Surroundings.

 

Initially, Surroundings began as a home furnishings and accessories store but began offering full interior design services soon after.  Fabric by the yard and wall coverings were a natural fit. From that point forward, interior design services became a major component and Surroundings Home had been born.  We love our loyal clients and appreciate your business.  

 

The entire Surroundings team looks forward to working with you on your personal or corporate project. Please email or call us at 508.758.9933.

I believe good design comes from harvesting things you love, knowing when to stop adding to a space, getting scale right and trusting an editing eye.  "Buy the best, cry once" is a proverb I can relate to... but thats not always an option. I'm happy to work within my clients budget and design for them, not my own ego.    

                                              - Bill Barr, Designer   

At a young age I knew that a career with an artistic vein would be in my future. My studies included Graphic Art and Photography as well as Jewelry Design, Art History and Drawing. I feel my passion for interior design benefits from this diverse education and previous work history makes me a well rounded indivdual, up for the challenges presented in the feild of interior design.

 

As native Californian I grew up outside San Francisco and lived in the Bay Area for 37 years. My design career began at Anne Symon Interiors in San Francisco.  In time, I opened my own interior design firm and enjoyed many satisfying years working on projects on the peninsula and in the city before moving east.  I would label my own personal style as “fresh traditional meets contemporary luxe” but I enjoy creating the look my client is after, whatever that may be.  Design is what drives my passion and diversity is what keeps my interest.

We love taking the time to thoughtfully fill the showroom with furniture and accents that feel fresh and current.  The store changes all the time as pieces sell and new things arrive.  We strive to keep the look, current not trendy, seasonally appropriate but with an eye toward seasonless good taste and longevity.  

                                          - Katie Marshall, Store Manager

At Surroundings you will find an interesting mix of traditional and comtemporary furnishings and accessories.  Some of our best selling items come from Lee Industries, a leader in upholstered goods - American Made - but we can custome build furniture, and have 100's of other vendors represented in our shop.  We also feature Thibaut fabrics and wallpaper, their extensive line suits most tatses, good availability and prompt delivery make them invaluble.  There are many things I love about my job but I would have to say merchandising the store and having customers and clients react in such a positive way when they vist sure makes coming to work worth it.  As a new home owner, I understand how it can feel to have so many choices to make when it comes to furnishing a home and would look forward to helping you make good decisions when your shopping in the store.  If we don't have what you're looking for, I'll order it for you.
