Houston Modern Home Tour
Tour de Force Home Houston by George Saba and Michael Farmer
Earlier this summer, Houston designer George Saba and General Manager Michael Farmer had the chance to assist with the interior staging of a property to be featured in Houston’s first Modern Home Tour. It’s hard to believe that this sophisticated city had yet to have such a tour, but by June 11th, the stage had been beautifully set for the curious and committed to preview nine upscale contemporary homes. By all accounts, the weekend’s event was a stunning success, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.
This home, in prestigious Piney Point Estates, was conceived and built by Capital Builders in collaboration with Nina Magon of Contour Interior Design. Nina came to us with an interest in Bontempi Cucine for the kitchen, and left as a partner in what was to become one amazing staging job.
With mere weeks to make haste, this custom spec residence (now referred to as the “Tour de Force”) had all the right ingredients to showcase what Cantoni can do for our clients and partners. The sleek exterior, use of natural stone, carrara marble, and a custom, pivoting front door practically begged for the clean and modern designs we carry. Not only does Cantoni offer a host of design services for individual homeowners, but builders, architects, and realtors often seek our product and expertise to fully enhance a near-finished project.
George, an architect himself, was thrilled to work on this 6,200 sq. ft. residence with 4 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths, three fireplaces, custom Italian kitchen (from our exclusive kitchen line—Bontempi Cucine), media room, guest suite, and too many “smart,” energy-saving systems to mention here.

What can Cantoni do for you? We’re sure it’s more than you can imagine. We believe in our creed: Great design is a way of life.
