THE FINAL PROJECT – by Doug Sears

August 20, 2015
 
I first started my internship at Robuck the summer of 2013.  Without a background in antiques or interiors, I figured I would try something new and out of my comfort zone to aid me with my future business degree.  My time at Robuck has flown by, and I can’t believe my third summer here has already come to a halt to start my senior year at Auburn University.
 
Kristen and Shane have taught me the kind of skill and knowledge that will stay with me forever, all done with expertise and an overload of humor and sarcasm.  I have been fortunate enough to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to own and operate a business by some of the most talented individuals in their field.  For that I dearly thank you, M. Shane Robuck and Kristen Marooney.  I don’t think anyone could have picked a better match for myself.
 
Before I headed back to school, Kristen proposed this would be my “final project”.  I wanted to send out an email displaying a different, youthful perspective to showcase my own taste in our pieces.  Here are some of my favorite designers and top picks from the shop…
 
Until next time,
Doug
