Flexible furniture solutions accommodate a variety of functions in an efficient floor plan that are inviting and promote accessibility.

After years of planning and fundraising, the Boxford Council on Aging’s dream of a new building had finally been realized. Conceived not only as a senior center, but as a multi-generational community facility, the Boxford COA worked with the architect of record on the design and construction of the new building. When it came to the finishing touches of the furniture, the COA reached out to Ebbrell for help. The challenge: To specify furniture that can do “double-duty,” be easily reconfigured or stored without needing to be lifted, and marry with the building’s typology as a cozy New England Colonial house.

  • Stepped into an in-progress expansion/renovation and hit the ground running with furniture programming and vendor selection.
  • Proposed furniture that could serve multiple functions, such as a pool table that converts to a dining table and furniture that can be reconfigured for lectures, classes, dining, and various group activities.
  • Researched ergonomic furniture pieces and configurations to meet staff and users' mobility and ergonomic needs, providing universal design solutions for all building users.
  • Worked closely with staff to find creative and clean storage solutions for both offices and multi-purpose spaces.
