Boston Area Furniture Boutique Expands Business to Quechee and Woodstock
Michelle Coppolo and her husband Jeff purchased a home in Quechee, VT in the Fall of 2004. At that time their son Nick was 4 and their daughter Jordan just turned 2. The Coppolo’s were a family that took advantage of every season in Quechee. In the summer Michelle would relocate to VT enrolling both kids in everything Quechee had to offer: tennis, golfing and day camps. Jeff would commute back and forth from Belmont for long summer weekends. When fall rolled around the family would drive to VT for the epic harvest weekends. Winter brought along a completely different set of activities and oftentimes a totally different group of friends. Both kids were on ski team and when they weren’t skiing they were playing ice hockey or swimming in the indoor pool. Quechee was a huge part of their daily life year round.
It is a common story for many Quechee families: The kids grow older and the time available for family becomes limited. It is a small phase of life, but still a reality. Because the kids were more involved with school, sports, jobs and their social life, the time spent in Quechee became less.
During this time, Michelle was faced with an amazing opportunity to buy her own business and re-enter the work force in something completely different than her previous career in banking. She took on the enormous task of owning and managing a retail/design studio in the home décor industry called Darby Road HOME, located in Waltham, MA right on the Weston border.
Darby Road HOME has been successfully growing year over year, in the Metro West area of Boston, the Cape and New Hampshire. It is only natural to move into Quechee as many of the second homeowners are from the Boston area. Because Michelle is so familiar with the various condo layouts, she easily understands the space plans, allowing her to make confident suggestions. For single-family homes, she will create personalized interior designs.
To make the process even easier, Darby Road HOME has partnered with a receiver and white glove delivery service in the Quechee area. Orders can be placed in the Boston showroom and delivered for local delivery fees to a Quechee residence.
One of the reasons Michelle came up with the idea to reach out to her fellow Quechee residents and let them know about her furniture boutique is because so many of them live in and around Boston. It just makes sense and is very convenient for her fellow Quechee people to be able to design their vacation home from a showroom close to their permanent home by working with the Darby Road HOME design team.
