Stanton Carpet Corporation, the Woodbury, N.Y.-based supplier of decorative, high-quality self-branded carpet, area rugs and LVP, is the flooring sponsor of the Designing Hope Showhouse: a project to create comfort in a home away from home. The Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley, along with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and Aspire Design Magazine lead the project along with various product sponsors and an A-list roster of design talent.
“Our mission was to transform the Ronald McDonald House to create a comforting space that promotes healing and fosters an atmosphere of peace and hope for families stricken with a sick child," said Katherine McGowen, president, ASID NY Metro. "This certainly could not have happened without the dedication, talent, and donations from our extremely generous designers. We are thrilled to be unveiling the spaces and are humbled and inspired by the care and effort each and every designer has put into creating a place of comfort for the families that will use this beautifully renovated home.”
The project includes a complete remodel of the house, with the help of generous leaders in the interior design industry. During the unveiling in late September, 20 designers’ creations included: two corridors, 13 en-suite bedrooms and bathrooms, two family laundry rooms, a lobby and vestibule, a conference room, a family pantry, a second floor family study and relaxations space, a day room, a public restroom and office space. Stanton supplied all of the LVP throughout the guest rooms as well as Stanton Street commercial carpet tile for the corridors and common areas.
In partnership with three of Stanton’s local retailers—Carpet Trends, Fenway Floors and Allen Carpet—Stanton was also able to generously supply the labor for the installations throughout the entire facility.
“Stanton is thrilled to be able to align our efforts and support RMH along with so many talented designers, and our valued retail partners. Their design and installation expertise coupled with our decorative flooring solutions resulted in elevated style, functionality and complete and total comfort throughout the entire home” notes senior director of marketing, Christine Zampaglione. “The design talent was unparalleled and each designer truly created a unique respite space for families that are going through the unimaginable.”
When a child is battling a serious illness or injury, the entire family needs comfort and support. The mission of Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley (RMHGHV) is to offer hope, help and a home-away-from-home to families during their child’s medical crisis. Keeping families close to each other and to the care and resources they need. Families are stronger when they are together, and by keeping them close, Ronald McDonald House plays a role in the healing and coping process.
“We are thrilled about this collaboration and the transformation that Designing Hope has brought to the Ronald McDonald House” said Christina Riley, executive director, RMHGHV. “The thoughtful care each and every designer has put into this project is inspiring. In just a few months they have accomplished what we at Ronald McDonald House strive to achieve everyday; making families feel at home, even when they can’t be.”
