Adirondack Rustic Interiors’ Screen Doors are One Dimensional Sculptures

By Anthony F. Hall

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

What would summer be without screen doors slapping against their wood frames as children race in and out?

It certainly wouldn’t sound like summer, at least not in the Adirondacks. Nor would a camp or cottage smell or feel quite like summer if interiors were entirely insulated from the elements.

So it makes perfect sense that Adirondack Rustic Interiors, the Warrensburg based home furnishings shop that celebrates the styles made famous by the Great Camps,  should  find itself a source for screen doors for people from across the country.

They’re not, however, your ordinary wood screen door. They’re custom built and each has carved decorations chosen by the homeowner or designed by himself.

In effect, they’re one dimensional, functional pieces of sculpture.

“We receive orders from all over the country; from California and Alaska as well as the Adirondacks,” said Jenny Massaro, who owns the shop with her husband Bill and their daughter Jenelle. “Every business has to have its own niche, so we’re pleased to be known as the store selling handmade, custom designed screen doors. But we never thought these screen doors would become one of our biggest sellers.”

The decorative elements include forest vegetation like pine trees and wildlife like deer, bear and moose. (Rachael Ray chose a moose for hers.)

When designing their own doors, homeowners can be as inventive as they wish. They can send the Massaros pictures of their house or their pets or suggest a design. A shore owner, for instance, recently requested seashells for a beach house.

Adirondack Rustic Interiors is located on Warrensburg’s Main Street, opposite the Church of the Holy Cross.

“We offer furniture, lighting, and décor made by area craftsmen from natural materials found in the region, then handcrafted into beautiful creations. We specialize in custom design for that piece you just can’t find anywhere else,” said Jenny Massaro.

That furniture, too, can be customized to suit the individual homeowners’ décor.

The store, however, is not limited to big-ticket items, and stocks gifts and accessories as well.

Adirondack Rustic Interiors is located at 3755 Main Street. Call (518) 623-9855 for more information.
