In 1994, she began working work for John Hunt ( The Drapery Man) as his manager. At that time this was just a "workroom to the trade" and we worked in some of the most beautiful homes in this area. He had been doing window treatments for over 40 years and passed along his experience and expertise to Susan. In 2005, John wanted to semi-retire, so Susan bought the business and started carrying designer fabrics and doing retail.
Susan has a passion for design and enjoys creating unique window treatments and draperies. She considers herself a Window Fashion designer.
Susan works directly with home owners as well as with several area designers. Her designers say "She gets into their heads and reads their minds and knows just what they are looking for".
Susan has her own showroom in Melrose and also shops at the Boston Design Center. "It’s all about what is the best match for the client and the space."
Susan has a team of professionals who have worked in the trade for a combined total of 80 years. There is also a special team of in home technicians who make special pillows, cushions and other items. They all work together with Susan to capture the designer's vision for everyone's ultimate satisfaction.
