The NeJame name has been synonymous with designing and building pools since 1954 and is owned by second- and third-generation family members Chris NeJame, wife Shelly, daughter Britney, and son-in-law Steve O’Brien.

Fabric Designer

Gretchen Bellinger

This Capital Region-based textile designer’s Bellinger fabrics have been featured in publications such as Architectural Digest, and are a part of the design collections of major museums, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While there is no retail shop to purchase the elegant and intricately woven fabrics, they are available to the trade through designers and architects. “Our collection speaks to those who approach design as a reflection of one’s self,” says Bellinger.



Home Improvement Services


Whether you need pre-fabricated supplies or want the raw lumber to complete the job yourself, Herrington’s is the place. This family-owned-and-operated store has been providing materials and support since the late 19th century, and currently provides architectural services, stone and masonry, and countertop fabrication for home fixer-uppers.

Chatham, Hillsdale, Hudson, and Millerton


Lumber Store

Williams Lumber & Home Centers

Need a 2-by-4? How about plywood? Williams carries quality grades of lumber for all kinds of projects. Even specialty wood, like mahogany, ipe, or Brazilian hardwoods, can be found here. Plus, with appropriate sealers, fasteners, and trim for sale too — not to mention electrical and plumbing supplies — Williams can help you build an entire house!

Outdoor Living Space Specialists

Neave Group

Since 1973, this architectural and land-sculpting business has been providing top-flight design, execution, and maintenance, whether you need a water feature, basketball court, or garden.

Place to Buy an Orchid

Black Meadow Flora

This is the go-to spot if you want to buy an orchid, or have questions about an orchid you already own. Margaret Bridge’s loving touch is evident in her three greenhouses full of flowers, her classes on caring for them, and her extensive knowledge of these long-stemmed beauties.



Plumbing Supplies
