Beginning in 1932, Speedwell Design Center (now located at 108 Ridgedale Avenue) was doing business as Speedwell Paint & Hardware located on Speedwell Avenue. As its reputation for product and service excellence, value and good old-fashioned honesty blossomed, so did the opportunities for the expansion of interior design products and services into what was to become northern New Jersey’s preeminent business of its kind.
Thanks to a resolute commitment to product diversity and quality, Speedwell Design Center garnered an exceptional reputation not only as a good place to do business, but also as a trusted company known for extending a helping hand to every customer. This dedication continues today, as the company President, Barry Kolsky leads us into the twenty-first century.
The neighborly, expert advice we have provided our customers over the years has evolved into how we work on commercial projects as well; so much so, that we are now recognized a leader in what we do throughout New Jersey, New York and Connecticut both for residential and commercial projects.
Operating to this day under the same, unwavering business practices as our founders, it is no wonder that Speedwell Design Center continues to be the dominant force in flooring, wall covering and window treatment products and services.
Since 1929, The Seeing Eye, Inc. has been a fixture of our community. When driving through town one can’t help but to see dogs in training. Speedwell Design Center is loyal to our home and contributes to the local community. One of the local organizations we support is The Seeing Eye, the oldest existing dog guide school in the world. The Seeing Eye’s students – people who are blind or visually impaired – come from all over the United States and Canada to spend up to month training with their new Seeing Eye® dog.
