People’s Light Expands

People’s Light is a professional theatre in Chester County, Pennsylvania, housed in a restored 18th century farmhouse boasting a beautifully appointed dining room with a private-terrace for hosting private events.

Meyer designed a permanent pavilion structure to replace the temporary tented area at the back of the farmhouse. The newly created area offers additional dining capabilities to accommodate larger groups and serves as an entrance to a fully landscaped courtyard and garden. The pavilion allows for weddings and corporate events to use two separate or joined spaces providing ultimate flexibility and dining seating for 250 guests.

As part of the renovation project, Meyer also refreshed the main banquet room, and reworked kitchen circulation and back of house areas to improve serving functions for the increased number of guests.

Carpenter Technology Selects Philadelphia as its Executive Headquarters

Carpenter Technology, a leading producer and distributor of premium specialty alloys, headquartered in Reading, PA, opened an executive headquarters in Philadelphia, PA. In order to increase visibility with a broad talent pool, and gain better access to transportation, customer markets, and world-class universities, they selected 1735 Market as their premier location.

Meyer’s design included high end materials and details to achieve a polished, executive image and a darker color palette to evoke the atmosphere of a metals brand.

JFCS Enrichment Center

Meyer was honored to be acknowledged at the Opening Celebration of the Barbara and Harvey Brodsky Enrichment Center of JFCS (Jewish Family and Children’s Services) for our role as interior designer.

The new 18,000 SF center includes a kosher teaching kitchen, children’s playroom, art studio, library, financial empowerment center, counseling rooms, offices and larger meeting space.  JFCS will offer services including counseling, adoption, nutrition education, financial assistance, and aid for people with disabilities.

“We want this building to be about community and enriching the lives of people who tend to be isolated and have challenging circumstances,” said Paula Goldstein, JFCS president and CEO. “We want this to be a home for them.”  Meyer collaborated closely with JFCS to make their vision come to fruition.

Latest Product Launch

Meyer is excited to announce the recent release of Mannington’s Intrinsic carpet line that was designed by Meyer and ONE Global Design, a network of principal-led design firms in 18 cities cofounded by Meyer. This unprecedented partnership led to a uniquely dynamic product: the unique contours, fractals and  gently organic nature of the patterns make the collection highly usable in corporate, healthcare, higher education and hospitality markets.

“By bringing together the top design professionals from around the country we will ensure our corporate clients will have current and thought thru product choices and not just the latest color trend” said Norm Liedtke, Meyer CEO and co-founder of ONE Global Design.

Intrinsic was inspired by the Eames’ Powers of Ten—ranging from the grand scale of topography to the intimacy of a blown dandelion—the collection shapes a captivating interplay of complex organics, visually layered to emphasize seamless textural changes. Intrinsic comprises four patterns: Contour, Intertwine, Magnify and Merge. Click here to view samples.

Stay tuned for the release of the Infused LVT in June. The Infused Collection was inspired by Mexico City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta, and New York.

Raising Funds to Ship Shoes

Your gently used shoes you no longer want can help create meaningful opportunities many in developing nations need!

That’s the message being delivered by Meyer, which has launched a drive to collect as many shoes, from April 3rd to May 1st, to help those less fortunate around the globe. Used and new shoes can be dropped off at Meyer’s office; 227 E. Lancaster Ave, Ardmore, PA 19003.

The shoes that Meyer collects will be delivered to Soles4Souls–a non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries.

Our Meyer Gives Back program is ready to make a difference! To reach our goals, teams have been formed for a friendly competition. Next time you visit Meyer or speak to one of our team members, see whose team they represent and help them out by donating your gently used shoes.
