Riordan Branch Receives a Custom Quilt for Historic Office Building

The conference room in Pioneer Title Agency’s Riordan branch is nothing short of stunning. With beautiful arched ceilings, an ornate Lumber & Timber Co. vault door and a stunning mural that represents the history of the building,  originally built by Timothy and Michael Riordan in 1900.

However, there was one downfall that couldn’t be ignored.

An echo.

Because the building has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior, the team, led by branch manager Bobbie Acklin, had to get creative on how to best absorb the sound.

Thus, the idea of a quilt was born. One that would not only serve as a functional element, but also one that would enhance the aesthetics of the space.

The task went to Alesha Birdsall and her mom Anne, who happen to be good friends with employees of Pioneer Title.

With full control over the creative design, the mom and daughter duo not only incorporated the style and colors of the conference room, but they were also able to replicate Pioneer Title Agency’s signature logo in the center.

“The goal was to make that room more inviting and comfortable for our customers during signings,” said Amy Darte, administrative assistant and friend of Alesha. “Not only has it helped with the echo, but it’s a beautiful piece of art that adds to the charm of the space.”
