Our History & Team
Our story begins at a local family-run lumberyard in Framingham with an unmatchable father-daughter team. After years of dedication and growth within the lumber industry, Gina’s passion for home-design and talent for business became the springboard for a new cabinetry division within the lumberyard. Launched in 1996, the cabinetry division became so successful that by 2001 it required its very own location — our current showroom on Concord Street. The following year, we incorporated as the Corner Cabinet and have been sharing our expert design skills throughout the state of Massachusetts.
Since we began as a family-run business, our family values hold strong. Gina has filled the Corner Cabinet with a close, collaborative, and supportive team of designers. These values only better the quality of the service we offer. You are important to us and you can expect us to go the extra mile for your business. Our company is always evolving, as the needs of our customers change, and as new products are created in the market. You can be rest assured that in working with the Corner Cabinet, you will enjoy the latest products, technology, and developments in the industry.
Above all, we are proud to partner with you to design your project and will work hard to earn your trust. You can also count on us to be available to service you in the future if the need ever arises.
Thank you for choosing the Corner Cabinet to be your cabinet company!
Our Design Team
Stephanie Collins-Rankin is the newest member of our team.
However, Stephanie is not a newcomer to design. She has studied art since childhood and especially enjoys color theory. After years of teaching art, she found kitchen design and stumbled upon a career she loves which allows her to use her creativity and appreciation of color in exciting ways. Her enthusiastic personality and delight in meeting new people help her be successful at educating clients on the design process for function and aesthetics that they will enjoy for years to come. Stephanie invests time to learn how the room is used and understand the wants and needs of the entire family to help her create a customized design for her clients. She takes pride in her projects and is always excited to hear from clients how much they love their newly designed space.
Dave Mauricio has been a designer with The Corner Cabinet since 2014.
He found a love for kitchen design in 2005 after working on designing his own kitchen and has been in the industry ever since. Dave derives professional satisfaction from helping his clients transform their space as he works with them to achieve their vision for their homes. He favors clean lines, open space, and lots of light with lighter whites and grays color palette. He prizes function over form. He enjoys connecting and collaborating on designs with his clients and is never shy about making recommendations or providing guidance where appropriate. Designer aside, he is the proud dad of two teenagers and under the thrall of a Polish princess.
Gil Foss has been a designer with The Corner Cabinet since 2002 and was designing kitchens long before that.
He enjoys the details of planning and partnering with clients to find the best solution to design a space. Drawing from his construction background, Gil is not afraid to suggest structural changes to improve the flow of the space and ensuring that we build the new kitchen on the best possible foundation. While the aesthetics are always taken into consideration, the function of the space is always his priority. To Gil, a challenge is an opportunity to hone his skill. Many of his best ideas have been developed from the challenges of previous spaces limitations or unique customer requests.
Gina Richard has been running The Corner Cabinet since it’s inception and was raised in the industry.
Gina Richard’s passion for design and talent for business is what built the company from a small division of a local lumberyard to what you now know of today as The Corner Cabinet.
