METRO DESIGN, STARTED BY GARY AND MARTY MATSON AND LATER JOINED BY THEN LIISA RIVERS WAS A KITCHEN AND BATH FURNITURE DESIGN BUSINESS. STARTED IN 1987 BECAUSE GARY'S THEN WIFE EVELYN SUGGESTED THE TWO TALENTS WOULD GO TOGETHER WELL. MARTY HAD A FOOD BACKGROUND AND GARY A DESIGNER/FURNITURE MAKER.
THE BUSINESS WAS "SHELVED" IN 2008 due to marriage and children. Liisa and Gary are married now with 2 kids Ethan 15 and Emma 14. Liisa home schools them and works on the occasional project and Gary has been a specialty photographer for over 20 years. Gary continues to design and build specialty furniture pieces for clients. The images below represent just a portion of the work over 20 years and as Liisa has pointed out "many of the best works were not photographed, the photographer was busy with other clients".
This represents projects and furniture pieces Gary built over the years including "progress " photos and non professional images as well. Mike Neff was our installer for most of those years Mike's talent for putting all of those pieces together properly was a huge part of the success Metro enjoyed.
