how we

WORK

The Surface showroom features unique, engineered surfaces for residential and commercial settings. Our design inspiration comes from European travels and the artistic use of stone in everyday living environments. Our living environments creatively display high end wallcoverings, lighting, tile, art, and custom cabinetry, which complement our stone surfaces.

We provide a comprehensive design plan and coordinate all aspects of your project to create your own personal vision in your living environment.

We look forward to working with you and are very excited to share the Surface experience with you!

I have consulted with Jo Ann for many years on stone work, tile, lighting, wallpaper, color and overall design and her... insights on all are excellent. Her knowledge of color is outstanding!I have used Surface for countertops and tile in our homes and couldn’t be happier with the results. The installation by The Stone Workshop, overseen by Daniel and Mario was perfect.The Surface showroom exhibits what great design is all about!read more

Surface showroom is inspiring and gives you ideas for home design projects. Jo Ann is knowledgeable about so many... areas of design and takes into consideration your aesthetic and budget. She knows what surfaces (ie stone, tile) work best and how to incorporate them holistically- taking account color, function and how it fits into the style of your home. We changed the tile of our powder room floor and Jo Ann suggested a herringbone pattern that I would never have thought of.read more

We had the pleasure of working with Jo Ann to design and choose finishings for our new home. She was a total life-saver... and has an unmatched eye for color and design! She was extremely responsive and honest, but respects you have an individual style of your own. She is well-versed in all facets of interior design from countertops, tile, paint, lighting, hardware, to art and furnishings and well connected in the industry. Having her guidance and advice along the way was vital and we ended up with a beautiful result thanks to her help.read more

Jo Ann helped me choose paint colors to freshen up my home 3 years ago when I was getting ready to sell. I loved her... ideas! So I didn't hesitate to call her last month when our church wanted to freshen up its entryways and narthex. Jo Ann walked in, looked around , and said, "Silver Satin, 200%..." Of course, you know how mini committees work -- let's ask her for a couple of other suggestions, we aren't sure... (what we are doing!) Stop in at Jesse Lee Church on Main St in Ridgefield and see how Silver Satin 200% looks! Spot on as usual, Jo Ann, thank you!!read more
