“I have been very pleased with the creative approach and quality of FX Design’s work. 

We needed to create a lobby environment that wasn’t sterile but also inexpensive. FX Design often had alternative ideas to fit our requirements.”

Workstations shrink; space, furniture become multi-functional

By Kathryn M. Roy


Many companies are hoping to get more mileage out of their furnishings and décor. “What they’re asking for is specifically carpets, wall coverings or upholstery that will last 20 years,” Bordeaux said. “They are looking for maintenance-proof finishes, furniture and flooring. They don’t want to replace it in five to 10 years.”Lighting is being upgraded to more efficient LED lighting and converting older style fluorescent lighting to a direct-indirect fixture. With the newer fixtures, the large bulb is no longer visible when the light is on, and glare is reduced on computer screens. As companies look to stretch their dollars with their design and furnishings budgets, one of the easiest ways to spruce up their surroundings is by improving their image.

The original conference room was previously used as a “catch all.” The design team was able to reduce the size of the room.

Adding glass blocks above the new wall to allow the Natural light to flow into additional offices created beyond.


Creating ample storage space was a priority for the charity, which receives a number of donated goods for needy children.

The design team re-designed the space and created over storage and cabinet storage wherever possible giving the space a clean, organized look

The ASID Connecticut Chapter’s community service project enabled
a local charity to better meet the needs of neglected children.

    It’s not everyday that a group of highly trained and skilled professional interior designers are able to use their talents to bring about

productive change to the office functions of a charity.

But the American Society of Interior Designer’s Connecticut Chapter was given such an opportunity not long ago by Covenant to Care

in Bloomfield, CT, an organization that provides for the emotional and physical needs of the state’s abused and neglected children.

    In 2003, Alex Lenox, the acting president of the Connecticut ASID chapter, asked Laura Bordeaux, ASID, of FX Design Inc, in

Glastonbury, CT, to chair the chapter’s community service project. Bordeaux had personal knowledge of the charity because she

had mentored a teenage mother through the agency. ASID wanted to help create a better environment for the agency that does their

best to provide for others. Bordeaux was told that the charity needed help with their office organization and layout.

    Two additional designers, Diane Pritt, ASID and Donna Auclair of Jung Brannen Associates in Farmington, CT, volunteered to

become committee members. Although the former Catholic convent building was once impressive, the CTC offices were reminiscent

of 1950’s and 1960’s government issued furniture, and there were bags of donated children’s clothes scattered in the reception area.

    The design team determined to approach this pro bono project just like any other commercial interior redesign, requiring all new

finishes and furniture. Pritt and Auclair scheduled the programming meetings with the staff of Covenant to Care to determine their

functional needs. The first objective discussed was how to create an inviting reception area that would reflect what Covenant to Care

was all about.

        The team then looked at reducing the size of the conference room, which was previously used as a "catch all” for donated goods

and mentor meetings. By downsizing the conference room, they were able to carve out an additional office for the mentor coordinator.

This new office was imperative to lend an element of privacy for meetings with mentors who are assigned to teenagers or teenage

mothers to be. The team’s next challenge was to raise funds and solicit donations of goods and labor to complete the new space. The

first manufacturer to step up and donate products was carpet representative Fury Sabato from Bentley Prince Street, Inc. Following

Bentley, President Paul Revenue of PAC Group LLC
General Contractors, located in Harwington, CT, agreed to provide construction management services at no charge.

   After two years the offices are 85 percent complete. The staff moved in on August 8, 2005. Prior to their move-in, Maggie Cole,

ASID Industry Partner donated her services to photograph the new space. The transition from Covenant to Care’s previously

unorganized space to their new well-designed offices with all new furniture should provide a great moral boost as well as create

a much more efficient work force. ASID trusts that all their diligent perseverance has created a unique and highly productive

environment in which Covenant to Care can continue their tireless efforts to change and improve the lives of thousands of needy

children in Connecticut.
