Diane S. – “I highly recommend Michelle Durand and Cabot House Furniture! I am currently in the process of a major remodel and reached out to Cabot House online and Michelle responded to my request the next day. Michelle came to my home to look around and see what it was that I was trying to accomplish, and we clicked immediately!! Michelle helped me to choose furniture for my kitchen, dining room, living room and family room. We are now working on window treatments, pillows, a seat cushion for my built-in, etc.
Michelle is a professional and a very talented designer who is easy to work with! She is a great listener, very attentive and really gets to know and understand what her clients’ tastes are. I sent her so many photos via email and text and at one point asked if it was too much and she said no, the more you send, the more I get to know what “YOU” like. The first time we met at the showroom to look at fabrics, I was bowled over by how many beautiful fabrics she had chosen which she had displayed on a large table for my husband and I to look at. I honestly cannot think of one fabric sample that I did not like! When I call her on the phone, text her or email her she is very responsive.
Michelle is also the Manager of the Burlington store, so she is always up to date with what is current and new which is helpful too! Michelle is incredibly warm and wonderful to work with! The bottom line is, Michelle is AMAZING, and you should consider working with her too; I am SOOO happy I did!!”
