We are happy to share that Kenneth Lynch & Sons has been featured in the June 2020 issue of Connecticut Cottages & Gardens. As a company, we love to work with interior and landscape designers, architects, municipalities, and homeowners to create beautiful outdoor spaces - so we are thrilled to share our work with their readers and connect with home and garden enthusiasts.
Kenneth Lynch & Sons has been in the family for three generations, with owner and president, Maria Lynch Dumoulin, granddaughter of founder Kenneth Lynch, at the helm. Here are some of the highlights from Maria’s “Meet the Designer” profile in CTC&G.
- The family company has always been a part of Maria’s life, as she started out making stone cast molds in the shop after college, and then moved into sales, inventory and client relations.
- In 2012, Maria became owner of the family business after her father retired and now runs Kenneth Lynch & Sons along with her husband, Derrick Dumoulin, who serves as Vice President of Operations.

- Since 1985, Kenneth Lynch & Sons has been the sole supplier of the iconic Central Park settee bench found throughout Central Park, and specifically Literary Walk. Maria continues a strong relationship with the New York City Parks Department thanks to which Kenneth Lynch & Sons has become the premier supplier of benches in New York City to all five of its boroughs.
- After Kenneth Lynch & Sons purchased the assets of Florentine Craftsmen to create the Florentine Classics line in 2011, the Neoclassical Chair has become a bestseller for designers and homeowners.
