In 2007, Rob McGowan founded Architectural Resources as the region’s exclusive dealer for Italian cabinet manufacturer Poliform. Over the years, AR has curated its offerings to include the world’s finest furniture collections - B&B Italia, Flexform, Cassina, Riva 1920, and Antonio Lupi. As a turn-key design resource, AR has also added renowned lighting companies such as Flos, Moooi, and Catellani & Smith, with world-class rug makers, Limited Edition and Kasthall.
However, perhaps the most notable additions to AR are the people. A few years back, Carmen Finegan AIA was brought on board to service the growing necessity for in house architecture and design. Her expertise has allowed the business to take on projects of any size, at any stage. Further, AR added additional design service and product knowledge by bringing on Steve Schafer to the team. With 20 years of design and sales experience, and 12 years in the Valley, his inclusion rounds out a full-service design team.
While AR has projects that span from Hawaii to Miami, they happily call Sun Valley home and plan to continue to do so in their recently expanded 3500 square foot showroom.
