Ann Shriver Sargent has spent most of her life living and working in New England. For the past 28 years, she has been a business owner, designer, and buyer in the home furnishings/interior design field. Educated in Vermont and Massachusetts, she graduated from Boston University with a BA in Art History and from Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business Executive Education program.
Currently, she is co-founder and president of Porte-cochère, a membership based service that connects premium and luxury furnishing manufacturers and prequalified interior designers. Ann’s vision for Porte-cochère is the outgrowth of her belief that companies committed to quality in design, integrity of materials and a commitment to building long-term professional relationships will find valued partners in the design community.
