About Threshold Design
Concrete is an ongoing staple in design circles. Just ask John Farley of Threshold Design: artisan, fabricator, and installer of 100's of custom concrete pieces in Ottawa and the Valley over the past decade. With his 30+ years of Architectural and Design background, John will provide more than just a custom product. He will bring original ideas, artistic flair and contemporary suggestions which will enhance the end result of your project.
His concrete designs have become a focal point of home renovations and new builds and added the “WOW Factor” to multiple commercial projects.
Once thought to be rough and unwelcoming, concrete in the living space has become a widely (and wildly!) accepted medium in the world of interior design. Although it’s been more than a decade since John began forming concrete surfaces in Ottawa, new ideas, clean designs, and interesting finishes have made them more in demand than ever.
A full spectrum of colours and staining techniques are available in John’s Pakenham Studio. By mixing colour pigments with white portland cement and various aggregates such as recycled glass and stone, many special effects are achieved in every project. When all elements are mixed in the right proportions is creates a stunning finished product.
John knows that today’s consumers are adding ecological considerations to their list of requirements for their homes and businesses. See the Ecological section for more details for eco-friendly concrete counter-tops and more concrete ideas that will make your space more beautiful...and make you feel good about your choice!
