A Look Back at 2015

December 18, 2015

2015 has been a great year for CUMAR. Not only have we had the pleasure of being a part of so many great projects, we’re continuously grateful to be able to work with so many amazingly talented designers and builders in the industry. From sponsoring a design week event, to being honored with a 2016 Best of Boston HOME, below are some highlights from our best year yet!


In March, as part of Boston Design Week, CUMAR along with M-GEOGH sponsored the well-attended Designing the Next Generation: The Give and Take of Mentoring in Luxury Homes panel.

In March, as part of Boston Design Week, CUMAR along with M-GEOGH sponsored the well-attended Designing the Next Generation: The Give and Take of Mentoring in Luxury Homes panel. Co-moderated by interior designer/media personality and Ellen DeGeneres brand ambassador Taniya Nayak  along with Patti Austin, Grammy Award–winning singer and Over My Shoulder Foundation co-founder, the panel focused on how mentoring helps enliven the field of home design. Panelists included: Meichi Peng, founder and principle of Meichi Peng Interior Design Studio; Andrew Goldstein, retired CEO of Thought forms; David J. Hacin, founder and principle of Hacin & Associates; Cheryl Katz, owner and co-founder of C&J Katz Studio; and Sean Clarke, general manager of Clarke Distribution.

In the Spring issue of Boston Common Magazine, CUMAR’s beautiful blue agate stone (pictured in the top left corner) was featured as one of interior designer and ASID President Eric Haydel’s hottest trends for the spring!

CUMAR was also featured in the Fall Kitchen issue of Boston HOME Magazine. Located in the Seaport District, this renovation turned an outdated kitchen into a contemporary haven with neutral quartz countertops and a crisp backsplash. Stainless steel hardware and Thermador appliances complement the space’s industrial vibe. Check out the article HERE!

In November, Ivo Cubi, President and Founder of CUMAR, was asked to do the closing toast at New England Home‘s annual Designer Hall of Fame Awards. The Hall of Fame honors individuals who have had especially significant careers in residential design in New England. A small number of architects, interior designers, and landscape architects whose work, influence, and community involvement set them at the pinnacle of their profession are inducted into the Hall of Fame at an annual ceremony each November. Since CUMAR has worked with many of the winners, both past and present, Ivo was the perfect choice to close out the memorable night!

In December, CUMAR was honored to be named “Best Stone Countertops” 2016 by Best of Boston HOME Magazine. CUMAR was recognized for our exceptional stone selection and our team’s dedication to customer service, making sure every project is expertly executed. This achievement marks the second “Best of” honor for CUMAR, having been previously recognized in 2011.  Check out the article HERE.

Once again, the entire CUMAR team  would like to thank you for your ongoing support and business. We look forward to another successful year together.

Wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday season and New Year – from our team to yours!
