We are always happy to help customers bring our sensibilities into their homes. We offer complimentary in-store appointments with our owner Joan Osofsky, home stylist Wanda Furman, designer Dana Simpson or design consultant Drew Evans in Pine Plains; in Rhinebeck with manager, Rhonda Cayea and in Gt. Barrington with Emma Sims-Biggs.

Our customers love Hammertown Style – its look, its comfort, its “karma”. Our “Modern Country” look has inspired many over the years and we are always happy to help customers choose items that will enhance their homes and have a lasting affect. Contact any of our managers for more information about in-store appointments, or email

Approachable Design Service

Sometimes design questions are best answered with on-location consultations.  After many pleas from our customers, we now offer affordable in-home design consultations…a service we call Approachable Design.   If you live within 25 miles of one of our stores (added travel fee if beyond that), you can have a visit from Wanda Furman or any of our other design specialists. They will spend two hours in your home assessing your needs. You decide what you need help with. We’ll give you paint color ideas, move furniture around, offer suggestions for what to keep and what not to keep, and will give you a plan for moving forward with your ideas. The fee is $300 for the visit. All you have to do is email and we’ll get the ball rolling.  Click here to see some customer feedback on our Approachable Design (click for details) service.


Rooms need to have accessories and special finishing touches to make them feel complete. These details make the difference between generic and unique and are what make a room truly yours. We can offer you suggestions and options which will help you create something personal and comfortable. Just what you need to “pull the room together” .

Color Palette Consultation

We can help simplify this daunting task and guide you to the color that will provide the perfect canvas from which to build. Our favorite paint palette belongs to Farrow and Ball Paints from England. We carry a large selection of their 2 oz. sample cans, making it easy and economical to try out all the options. With a vast palette of colors to choose from, it is so hard to pick one. Receive help with choosing a paint color with confidence.

Furniture Arrangement

The proper furniture arrangement can increase the function of the room, while emphasizing its best features. What’s more, sometimes a bit of rearranging can make the old seem new again. If you need a new sofa or chair or want to rearrange a room that hasn’t changed in years, we can be a big help.
