Cumar on HGTV’s House Hunters Renovations

October 23, 2014


Chris and Erin knew that relocating from Australia to Erin’s hometown of Boston, MA, would pose challenges. Each of them had an idea of their perfect home: Erin wanted a contemporary split-level, Chris likes modern-rustic. Oh, and they need an in-law suite for the times when Chris’s parents visit from Australia. All on a $600,000 budget.

An impossible feat in the tight Greater Boston market? That’s why HGTV’s “House Hunters Renovation” stepped in to help. A job this daunting calls for the best. HGTV called upon interior designer Eric Roseff to turn the family’s dream home into a reality—and Eric reached out to Cumar’s own Dawn Carroll to advise on their stone choices.

Dawn Carroll leapt at the opportunity to work with Roseff on this show. With more than fifteen years of experience, his design portfolio includes such diverse spaces as Montana’s Yellowstone Club, a residence at the Ritz Carlton, and a plush Brookline estate.

With a deadline looming as well as a hard-and-fast budget, Dawn met with Eric to select a set of fabulous and uncommon stone options for Chris and Erin. Cumar stocks more than 8,000 different slabs of stone from which to choose, boasts a new state-of-the art fabrication shop, and offers complete installations services.

“The producers were floored when they saw Cumar’s new state-of-the-art fabrication,” says owner Carlotta Cubi. “Our production facility recently doubled in size and we now have the capacity to run 24/7 with multiple shifts cutting and carving our stone.”

“This really is the Rolls-Royce of the stone world,” says designer Eric Roseff.

“With our team of expert engineers, we can take any stone dream and make it a reality,” adds owner Ivo Cubi.

Which stone does Chris and Erin choose? Will they complete the renovations before his parents arrive in Boston? You’ll have to watch the episode to find out!
