Martha Hafner, an experienced cabinet designer specializing in kitchens and baths, brings years of expertise in residential construction and design.
(Sarasota, FL) Metro Cabinet Company, a Sarasota-based boutique design firm, has recently welcomed designer Martha Hafner to its team. Hafner is an experienced cabinet and space designer specializing in design for contemporary kitchens and baths.
Billue Guignard, the company’s owner and founder, describes Hafner as “a leader in a highly competitive field.” According to Guignard, Hafner’s exceptional 20-year track record reflects a commitment to cutting-edge design and services.
“Good enough is never good enough for Martha,” Guignard says. “Modern design is a moving target. To be the best, you have to stay on the cutting edge. Martha’s done that for her entire career and that’s what makes her the perfect fit for Metro.”
Guignard adds that Hafner’s commitment to excellence means more than keeping up with the latest technology and trends.
“Martha’s focus is on the client, not only on the latest bells and whistles,” she says. “Bringing their visions to life is always her goal. To succeed at that, a designer needs both expertise and empathy. And Martha consistently succeeds. She’s a creative problem-solver, who understands job flow and scheduling. She combines that with a knack for gracefully coordinating suppliers, contractors, architects, interior designers and homeowners. We’re delighted to welcome her!”
Hafner’s roots in her field go deep. Her devotion to space design and residential construction began in childhood, growing up as the daughter and granddaughter of builders. After following in their footsteps as an adult, she excelled at a vast range of projects, from small kitchens that maximize efficiency, to gracious spaces with multiple work areas and focal points. Her mastery as a space designer combines an understanding of cabinet construction with a high level of engineering ability. Thanks to that combined expertise, Hafner can design cabinetry that functions as an architectural feature, such as a room divider, integrated furniture, cabinetry wall or special use area. It’s a problem-solving approach. And Hafner’s happy to put her expertise to work for Metro.
“I share Billue’s belief that beautiful design has the power to transform and enrich lives,” says Hafner. “It also needs to be functional. We both value working with artisans and master craftspeople who pay attention to detail and who understand that a well-designed environment must artfully integrate the objects and the space within. I’m thrilled to be a part of Metro!”
According to Guignard, Metro is adhering to official workplace directives during the COVOD-19 pandemic. “The health and safety of our clients and employees is our utmost priority,” she says. “Our installation and design teams use every precaution and we work with our clients to understand their needs.”
