Before September 6, rivertowns architects, interior designers and their clients looking for a broad selection of high-end tiling had to go either to a large and intimidating showroom on Central Avenue or into New York City. No longer. Since then, Sideli Tile & Stone has been offering a full array of tiles as well as installation services out of a two-room boutique on Main Street in Dobbs Ferry.
Will Sideli, who grew up on a bluestone quarry near Kingston, NY, had been installing tile for 15 years, from upstate New York to Brooklyn. But with more and more clients in the metropolitan area, Will and his wife, Megan O’Halloran, decided to move to Dobbs. Not only were the rivertowns a more convenient center for Sideli’s installation work, they reasoned, it was also a more appropriate environment for opening a showroom. “The idea for us,” said O’Halloran, “was to have a smaller boutique with lots of selection.”
According to the couple, Sideli already has a client base, but as newcomers, they are concentrating on growing that list—especially among the professionals. “We’ve got to be on the menu,” said O’Halloran, who, with her background in business management, acts as the firm’s Principal. “We’re working hard on marketing.”
Sideli Tile & Stone is located at 74 Main Street in Dobbs Ferry. Customers can view their offerings at www.sidelitilestone.com.
