“With a cuisine influenced by the spices and culture of the Eastern Mediterranean, Oleana required a setting that matched the taste. Based on Kevin McPherson’s experience in these parts of the world, Mohr & McPherson was a natural fit for developing the restaurant decor.
From Indian dining chairs, Turkish copper or Moroccan mosaic tile tables, to beaded Syrian lighting, every piece we have purchased from Mohr and McPherson has been of the highest quality and hand chosen by Kevin or Kay to fit our specific needs. It is their knowledge of the inventory, willingness to work closely with me on design ideas and the overall pleasant experience that is found at Mohr & McPherson on every level that keeps me returning all the time!”

“I’ve known Kevin McPherson for over 15 years and have purchased items from him for over a dozen restaurants that I have developed, including all of the Rustic Kitchen locations, which my wife and I own. In this time, the entire staff of Mohr & McPherson has been invaluable to me and Kevin has become someone I consider a dear friend.
No project is too small or too large for the Mohr & McPherson staff to handle and they tackle each one with the same attention and expertise. Kevin and Kay patiently and painstakingly research items and acquire them at an affordable price through the many resources and networks that they have worldwide. In his travels, Kevin has even hunted down specific featured items for me and I consider his “finger prints” to be on all of my restaurants. Both Kevin and Kay are true artifact specialist and I have referred many friends to them over the years. All of them have been equally impressed with Mohr & McPherson.”

“The Franklin Cafe has had an relationship with Mohr & McPherson for over a decade. We used their inventory in our first restaurant in the South End of Boston in 1996 and in every location since. Kay and Kevin have been integral in helping us develop a design “personality” that represents the warmth and approachability we try to achieve. Simply put, there is no other store in Massachusetts that has such an impressive collection of truly unique items.
The constant rotation of furniture pieces, art, mirrors, lighting and other design elements is very helpful. This allows us to visit several times during a construction and development project and always have some new pieces to look at. Kay’s strong understanding of the inventory, availability and knowledge of lead times have been invaluable.
Thirteen years after our first purchase we are about to open a new restaurant in South Boston and Mohr & McPherson is providing seating, furniture and art. No matter what your business or design template, Mohr & McPherson is an essential stop.”
