Sean - O'Connor - Staff at Hoggarth Interiors in Kirkland Lake

Sean O'Connor- Owner ..

Sean began his career at Hoggarth Interiors delivering paint on his bike. He has admitted that in a rush to get the paint to the customer he has decorated the occasional piece of pavement!

He completed the Interior Design and Decoration Program at Niagara College in 1979. He was employed in the Interior Design department at a furniture store in southern Ontario when he received a call from his parents Mary and Gerry to join them at the store. Reluctant to return, he told them he would try it for six months. Over thirty years later he is still unsure when his probationary period will be over!

Sean is married to Nancy Beard who is a Public Health nurse and they have three children. Lauren the oldest, is the Pharmacist at the Kirkland Lake & District Hospital, Kristyn is a supply teacher and works part time at the store and son Neil who is completing his Degree in Project Management. Just like their Aunts and Uncles who also worked at Hoggarth Interiors, Sean and Nancy’s children have learned the most valuable lesson on how to be successful in business….customer service.

In the family tradition of volunteering, Sean has been involved in the Kabaret Charitable Foundation, Team Kirkland Lake, Business Improvement Area, Police Commission, Kirkland Lake Minor Hockey, Northern College Business Advisory and Kirkland Lake & District Family Health Team Board of Directors.

When he’s not at the store, Sean can usually be found at the rink refereeing or still trying to play hockey.

Sean and the team are continuously seeking new products and are cognizant of colours and trends. Sean adds “Our customers usually drop in to see us to make their house into a home and more often than not, we become friends not unlike my parents and grandparents did when they were here at Hoggarth Interiors”

Annie Cunnington -Sales Associate ...

Annie (Kmyta) Cunnington was born and raised in Kirkland Lake. With the support and encouragement of her family, Annie graduated from Georgian College Design and Creative Arts three year program majoring in printmaking, sculpting and painting.

As an accomplished artist who is best described as the most creative person on the team, Annie joined Hoggarth Interiors when she and her husband Gary re-located to the area. Annie compares the quality of the products available at Hoggarth’s to be reminiscent of the exquisite craftsmanship in hand made printing paper.

When away from work, Annie loves to paint, paddling her kayak and tirelessly volunteering for her community of Larder Lake. Most of all, Annie treasures her time spoiling her grandson.

Blessed with unparalleled customer service, Annie adds “The creative spirit at Hoggarth Interiors is diverse and complex as is each and every customer that we serve, but at the end of the day, week or month the result entails simply beautiful interiors!”

Annie looks forward to meeting you at the store.
