Penthouse Perfect

MARA PROTICH | Cloverleaf Design & Construction

MARA PROTICH IS THE OWNER OF CLOVERLEAF DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION. She was hired to design and build out a 3,300-square-foot penthouse for her clients.“The penthouse project has been an opportunity that allowed me to design the home of their dreams, and maybe a little beyond what we expected,” she says. Each room incorporates customdesigned pieces from Homestead Furniture, from the living room wall bookshelf to the stunning troubadour console with bookmatched walnut doors and end panels. The piece, designed to be the “wow factor” in the entry, is framed by a deep blue lacquered wall and collection of artwork that greets you as you step off the elevator.

Homestead also worked with Cloverleaf to realize a pair of 11-foot tall dry bars using curly maple finished with a high gloss black stain. The pair are complete with pull out drawers to hold bottles of the clients’ bourbon collection. Other requested details that Homestead obliged include removable wine racks and antique brass legs, to stunning results. Homestead worked with Cloverleaf to add a channel for the addition of LED lighting. “Our clients’ vision was to create a space that flows seamlessly from one room to the next,” Mara says. “Each detail, from finishes to hardware to trim, is realized with all the Homestead pieces. The ability to personalize the items makes the space beautiful, inviting and comfortable.”

Mara also wanted to create a special powder room for her client. “Powder rooms to me are a wonderful opportunity to be creative and I feel they should be fun and thoughtprovoking,” she says. “My vision that I took to Homestead was to create a custom, curvedfront, freestanding, black vanity on legs and an irregular-shaped mirror that evokes a dreamy 1920s style. I found the design team very receptive and enthusiastic to share my vision and build exactly what we had in mind.”

Mara was able to collaborate with Homestead to create the perfect penthouse for her clients, and they will enjoy their custom pieces for many years to come.

“Homestead’s furniture is custom-made. They are craftsmen. You don’t see these techniques and workmanship in mass-produced furniture.”

Top Quality, Top Value


JEREMY AND MARTHA BUCKLEY HAVE USED HOMESTEAD FURNITURE SEVERAL TIMES OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, RECENTLY UPGRADING THEIR HOME WITH MULTIPLE PIECES, including a large leather sectional sofa and Craftsmen-style recliner, a custom bookcase for the basement and a king size bed for the master bedroom. They refreshed their office with Homestead's Banbury executive desk custom wall unit with hutch and bookcases, swiveling leather club chairs, leather lounge chairs and a one-of-a-kind live edge table.

“We place tremendous value on high quality, durable wood products that are also beautiful,” says Martha. “Homestead definitely provided the best quality furniture we’ve ever purchased.” This quality, she adds, makes Homestead the best value for the price.

"Homestead definitely provided the best quality furniture we’ve ever purchased."

One of the top values for the Buckleys is the Design Center. “The design service was a major reason we went with Homestead,” says Martha. “We are not interior designers, so the fact that they came to our aid in color selection and sizing/spacing of the furniture based upon the size of the room was key for us. They designed pieces that matched the décor of our home. They also utilized the blueprints from our house to measure wall lengths, doorways, etc. to derive appropriately sized pieces. That was absolutely critical for the final layout to work.”

Martha and Jeremy recommend Homestead Furniture unequivocally. “Homestead’s expertise, professionalism and eye for design, combined with the high quality of the furniture, made it the best investment we could have made,” says Martha. “The communication throughout the process was excellent – regular updates and no surprises. They also delivered the furniture and set it all up very nicely.”

Excellence You Can Count On


LARRY AND SANDY MCCOY OF DELAWARE HAVE RETURNED TO HOMESTEAD MANY TIMES OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, initially starting with a full wall unit for their TV. A year or two ago, they relied on Homestead for the Kenton dining table and Coventry chairs, and now a new bedroom suite that includes the Franklin bed and dressers. There’s value, they say, in seeing pieces on display while also having options to tailor pieces to your style or needs. “The quality of Homestead’s furniture and their beautiful showroom is very impressive,” Sandy says, “and the ability to personalize my own pieces was very appealing to me.”

For Sandy, the quality of Homestead’s work means it’s their first stop when thinking about new furniture. “Honestly, we did not really shop around many other places,” she says. “We have been around long enough to know that you get what you pay for, and a typical furniture store’s quality just doesn't compare.”

"The ability to personalize my own pieces was very appealing to me."

Sandy finds that the sales staff at Homestead is helpful without being pushy. “I love that you can go and look around without a salesperson hounding you the whole time,” she says. Explore the showroom at your own pace to help spark ideas, but rest assured, when you’re ready for assistance, the staff will jump right in. “Working with their design consultants has been awesome,” Sandy says. “They listen to what we want, makes suggestions, and have never been pushy. They were very patient with us through our decision-making process.”

“I love going there!” she says. “Our friends bought a kitchen table set from Homestead. I absolutely have recommended them to others.”
