SPOTLIGHT on The Fourth Wall Design

Last updated 6 years ago

Our latest customer testimonial in Polk County featured The Fourth Wall Design. The owner, Tom Monaco has an interesting story we'd love to share. Here's what Tom had to say in our interview:

"“After spending time as a theater designer and college professor, one day I quit my job to pursue my dreams. I decided to pack up and move to Lakeland because of the central location, great art scene and bustling chamber of commerce. I am now happily settled here as an artisan.  

My goal is to provide design and fabrication services for unusual and one of a kind art pieces, furniture, room environments and other stand alone elements for homes as well as businesses. I strive to give each piece a unique theatrical design sensibility and the highest possible level of craftsmanship. The demand for unique work has been so great, I began to run out of room.  

As luck would have it, a bank found me. Community Bank of Florida’s lender, Karen, had contacted me about a furniture job. I decided to talk to her about expanding and we ended up financing my dream studio and gallery. Now they take care of all my banking needs and it’s great to know I can call them anytime.”
