Twin Meadow Home: Your New Home Furnishings Destination

Experience personalized shopping service and quality products at the new East Longmeadow storefront and showroom

The husband-wife team of Joseph and Alexandra Tremblay pride themselves on offering their customers a personalized home design and furnishings experience. At their new East Longmeadow showroom and storefront, Twin Meadow Home, they bring a combined, extensive range of experience, providing customers precisely the service they require.

“We prioritize customers' needs and recommend designs and layouts that work best for them,” says Alexandra. “We offer the whole range of services, from guidance on a project to taking advantage of our full design services, where we take care of everything for them.”

Twin Meadow Home has nine employees with backgrounds in interior design and architecture, allowing the business to offer services from decorating to renovation. “We knew if we could have in-house planning and construction, we could make it a better experience for the customer,” says Joseph. Services can be done as package deals, or a la carte with customers choosing their preferences. Twin Meadow Home also offers a white-glove delivery experience, with Twin Meadow delivering and setting up furniture in their customers’ homes.

The crux of the duo’s business model is customer service: making sure that each customer’s needs are met and forming a relationship with clients in order to best serve them. “We work to understand the customer—how they live, how they use a space in their home—as well as the aesthetics they envision,” explains Alexandra. “This helps us to plan properly and match the design to customers' vision and lifestyle.”

The East Longmeadow store offers a stunning display of furniture and home decor products, with an 11,000-square-foot showroom. Visitors can see and feel an eclectic collection of American-made pieces from transitional to modern styles and in a range of price points. The showroom features two hanging rug racks with rugs to suit every lifestyle—from those made of performance materials for busy homes, to those made of upscale materials for that special look.

Textiles including bedding, pillows, and throws as well as upholstery and custom window treatments are showcased at the store. The store also boasts a large collection of interior and exterior lighting, artwork, preserved and faux botanicals for arrangements, pots, vases, urns, baskets, and much more to complete a room’s look.

“There is something that can fit everyone’s design style,” explains Alexandra. “Our strength is defining what your best taste and style are even if you can’t define that yourself.” While much of the inventory is ready to be taken home at the time of purchase, customers can also place custom orders.

Alexandra and Joseph visit The High Point Market in North Carolina annually, where they custom curate what pieces they will bring back to their store. High Point Market is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world.

While Joseph’s focus is more on the business side of things, Alexandra works more on the design side. She has a degree from the New York School of Interior Design, an elite degree for those in the design world. She worked for a number of years in Great Barrington before building her own clientele.

Since many of those clients lived in the Longmeadow area, Joseph and Alexandra decided to open their first store, Tremblay Maison, which offers more specialized design and renovation services, at 153 Longmeadow Street in Longmeadow in 2015. With the need for additional space for the products they offered, they opened their second location, Twin Meadow Home, at 45 Baldwin St Suite A. in East Longmeadow.

Although some brick-and-mortar stores seem to be waning, the future appears bright for Twin Meadow Home. “We encourage people to come in and get ideas,” says Joseph.
