Attention to Detail

We have enjoyed Cherilee’s expertise for both home and office remodel projects. One of the things we appreciated the most was her willingness to take the time to really understand what we wanted and how each space was to be used. Cherilee’s creativity is vibrant, her attention to detail is remarkable! She was with us throughout the projects, making sure everything fit together perfectly. The pieces of furniture we purchased at her studio, The Elegant Pear, are beautifully crafted, unique, as well as functional. We look forward to Cherilee’s wonderful, professional and friendly expertise in the days ahead!

I’ve known Cherilee personally for many years and can’t say enough good things about her. Since she opened her store my wife and I enjoy stopping in when we are in Old Town to see what is new, cool and unique, because there is always something! When it was time to do some remodeling of our home Cherilee was instrumental in helping us make the decisions that we were agonizing over. She took the time to listen to our ideas and helped create a kitchen and great room that was not only on-trend but something we hope will be timeless. She was always there when we were at a crossroads with swatches & samples and helped guide us to a design my wife and I love without being too pushy or opinionated like some other designers. If you are redecorating, renovating or just looking for great furniture, check out The Elegant Pear!

Highly Recommend

I highly recommend Cherilee and The Elegant Pear to all my clients. Cherilee is so easy and fun to work with on any and all of your design projects. Her personal sense of style and extensive design knowledge is always spot on. Visit her lovely old town showroom to preview the latest design trends!erilee and will do so again in the future.


I truly do not think we have ever had a better experience with a company. Cherilee is spectacular! We were building a new home and decided we needed a little assistance with spaces that we didn’t already have furniture for. Little did we know in the end Cherilee would end up helping us with so much more She listened and made sure her recommendations suited what was important to us, not just making spaces that looked good or trendy. Our home feels so customized and just perfect for us. We are thankful everyday (literally!) that we had her guidance. From our design meetings, to installations, to follow up, Cherilee has been professional, kind and has always made everything “right” even if there were issues that were completely out of her control. Working with her was truly one of the highlights of our home building process. But even more than that, we are grateful to have made a friend of a truly extraordinary person..

A delight to work with

Cherilee Blubaugh, the owner of The Elegant Pear is a delight to work with. I wanted to add a valence in my dining room and kitchen area that would work with my preexisting decor. Cherilee designed a beautiful flowing valence that works perfectly. The seamstresses she is connected with are incredibly
talented as well. Her pricing is very reasonable and fair. I loved working with Cherilee and will do so again in the future.

A delighted Client

My husband and I extended our living room 7 feet by moving out the front wall of our house. We kept our old furniture but it looked odd with the additional space. We happened to be walking past the Elegant Pear one day and I “dragged” my husband into it just to look. The owner Cherilee warmly greeted us. I happened to have a 20 second video of our living room and asked her opinion of what she would do. Immediately after watching it, she suggested a new layout of the existing furniture. Furthermore, she didn’t recommend we needed to purchase anything from her. We went home and my husband moved the furniture as she suggested and it was amazing how the room was transformed. My husband became a “fan” of Cherilee’s at this point and now regularly uses the living room to relax. My husband has been reluctant to engage in the design process in the past but he actively recommends Cherilee to other people. I took advantage of this and worked with Cherilee to update our bedroom. The transformation was again beautiful and Cherilee’s sense of design and her attention to detail are excellent. Cherilee is a delight to work with her bubbly personality and the fact that we always felt she had our best interests at heart. A delighted client.

Great Taste

Working with Cherilee was a delight. Her taste and good-nature provided the ideal combination in redesigning our living room. We highly recommend The Elegant Pear and Cherilee and would use her services again.

Thank You

Working with Cherilee at the Elegant Pear has been like a stylish, fabulous walk in the park with a good friend. Our experience was the opposite of stressful – we celebrated how fun it can be to pick out furnishings and play with texture. I keep coming up with new projects so I can work with her again. Her choices are varied to reflect all differently styles of decor and budget. We have never been happier with our home than we are now largely in part to Cherilee. Thank you


Cherilee led us through two major remodels in 2017 and 2018. As new empty-nesters we were excited to ‘reprogram’ our home for our new lifestyle. Cherilee was very patient with us left-brained engineers, coaching us through a creative process that led to beautiful results that fit us perfectly. She went above and beyond, literally installing our 2nd remodel when we were away on vacation for our 25th wedding anniversary. That’s how much we trust Cherilee and how much her level of service exceeds anything we’ve ever experienced. We would highly recommend Cherilee and The Elegant Pear.

Professional & A Great Eye

Cherilee has helped us with 4 projects and working on a 5th in our home. She brings professionalism, a great eye, and fresh ideas to every project she does. Above everything I trust Cherilee as an honest Christian business woman. She designed our family room/bar, redesigned our bathroom, decorated our living room and much more. Cherilee put us in contact with a great contractor. She gets the job done and makes sure you’re satisfied.

Creative & Collaborative

We have completed two major design renovations, in two homes in the last 3 years with Cherilee / Elegant Pear. Our experience has been incredibly professional, creative, collaborative, and personally rewarding. Cherilee’s attention to detail, budgets, concepts, ideas, and willingness to engage in alternatives, and her commitment to quality are outstanding. With the combination of Elegant Pear furniture selection and customization, color, fabric, texture ideas, and a pragmatic approach to designing our space to meet our family needs … the result has been pride in our designs, excitement of our entire family with the results… and the flow of our design is functional and just plain compelling!
