Fort Myers, FL (September 10, 2010) — Robb & Stucky Interiors, one of North America’s most respected furnishings and interior design firms, has been selected by The Islander Beach Resort of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, to direct the total renovation of its timeshare units.
Located directly on the Atlantic Ocean at 1601 S. Atlantic Avenue, the 70-unit vacation ownership resort was initially developed in the 1970s and will greatly benefit from the planned “facelift.” The Islander Beach Resort is close to shopping, dining and Central Florida’s world famous attractions are within an hour’s drive of the oceanfront resort.
Robb & Stucky Designer Ron Nowfel, IDS, (www.RobbStucky.com) is currently directing the renovation of 54 units with six different floorplans, which will feature a Florida tropical design theme utilizing a color palette of soft blues and yellows. The resort’s Home Owners’ Association is covering the cost of the renovation.
Added Nowfel, “Installation of all furnishings is expected in December of this year, with all items installed during a single week. Our case goods will include bamboo and rattan and bedrooms will feature custom manufactured wall-mounted headboards that are being fabricated with a basket weave material that looks much like rattan. We are also supplying new casegoods, window treatments, bedspreads artwork, lighting, carpet and sofa and chairs.”
Nowfel was a recent winner in the American Resort Development Association’s annual design competition. A 30-year veteran designer, Nowfel has been designing hospitality properties for Robb & Stucky for the past decade and has worked on resorts from Scotland to Scottsdale.
Commented Dan Lubner, President of the Hospitality Design Division of Robb & Stucky Interiors, “We are happy to help transform this beautifully located resort with updated furnishings and accessories to meet their budgetary requirements. This is an ideal project for our team of talented design professionals as it incorporates our abilities in design, custom manufacturing and speedy turnaround.”
