Jay and Diana Frucci realized their dream to raise their family in a small business when they acquired the assets of Furniture Consignment Gallery (FCG) in 2005.
Located in Hanover Massachusetts, the Frucci’s quickly transitioned the business from a small retailer of refinished furniture into a boutique services business and full-line furniture retail operation. The added services included custom consignment account management, full-service furniture removal, and delivery, Interior Design, reupholstering and refinishing, and furniture repairs. The new services fueled a robust stream of consignments and long term customer relationships that enabled the business to expand into multiple locations. FCG currently has three retail locations in Hanover, Plymouth, and Natick Massachusetts containing over 40,000 square feet of showroom space that showcases high-end, pre-owned traditional, and Euro contemporary home furnishings.
In 2020, FCG launched FCG Home Services an umbrella company that would better encompass FCG’s portfolio of services. In September 2020, FCG Home acquired Tilton Cleaning and Restoration. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, FCG felt a need to instill peace of mind within the customer base by offering upholstery cleaning for incoming consignments as needed. Tilton was providing FCG with these services pre-pandemic, and with the rise of COVID-19, FCG chose to bring the service capability in-house. Tilton Cleaning has been renamed FCG Home Services Cleaning and Restoration. Along with the acquisition comes Mike Tilton who owned and operated Tilton cleaning for 44 years.
Mike’s core values focus on quality and customer relationships. Jay and Diana share those values, but that’s not all they share. Jay and Diana met at the University of Kentucky on the UK Waterski Team. They have been competitively waterskiing for over 20 years and have raised their three boys in the sport. Mike is also a lifelong elite competitor in the sport of waterskiing. Since the acquisition,
Mike has been sharing his knowledge on carpet cleaning while also coaching Jay and Diana on how to ski around more slalom buoys. Mike is excited to join the FCG team and is available for all of FCGs customers for consultation and expertise on cleaning methods and solutions.
