Cassalto provides thoughtful, handsome, intuitive and functional options in modern cabinetry systems and furnishings for residential and commercial spaces. The team edits and curates options which allow people to make selections easier from the myriad of options on the market. The singular focus is to support the furnishings needs of people and improve the comfort and beauty in their spaces.
Founded by designers and builders, the widening gap in the marketplace between online self-serve options and complex custom solutions created the ideal opportunity for the birth of Cassalto. Clients either faced a myriad of online options without much professional guidance to help make the right choices; or too much of the same dull offerings; or no direct access to the best products from the professional design world – where quality and durability are revered.
Born in Silicon Valley, the company subscribes to many of the same values as local tech start-ups; creating solutions around industry pain points, unconventional thinking in identifying what a cabinetry and furniture company ‘should’ be, a culture of contribution indifferent to hierarchy, and a spirit of nimbleness that entrepreneurs in the San Francisco Bay Area know inherently.
If you want the consummate design pro experience, we invite you to work with Sherry Scott. Sherry has a gift for bringing order to chaos, managing projects and making spaces functional as well as beautiful. With a degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Philadelphia, Sherry is an accomplished Interior Designer of over 25 years in commercial design, residential interior design, and furniture design. She developed ground-breaking programs for the American Society of Interior Designers and served on the boards on several not-for-profit community design organizations. Sherry has won interior design awards, been published in national magazines, and appeared on several HGTV shows. Her natural curiosity and entrepreneurial drive combined with her knowledge base from working with cabinet and casework manufacturers in Italy and Spain led her to realize there was a gap in local retail offerings. With her interior, product design and retail experience, Sherry has the skills that round out the leadership at Cassalto; where innovative product design, quality manufacturing and elegant furnishings come together to make environments that flow.

Steve Crain’s entrepreneurial spirit drives product innovation and champions client care at Cassalto. Steve,
a 20 year master in the cabinet craft as well, brings a different perspective to cabinetry with a background in interior architecture. Steve’s passion for his art comes alive when he talks about how a space and each of It's components makes people feel; from the flow of the cabinetry, to the innovations that make it so intuitive, it’s apparent that the Cassalto line of cabinets is more science than storage.
