Known For: Running the business aside, Peacock overseas product development and creating the next opportunity. His cabinetry has won as much wide acclaim for its understated elegance and clean design as his staff has for their impeccable service.
Up Next: "I'm seeing people get more daring," he explains. "Connecticut customers still want classic, but aren't frightened to jazz it up a bit. There's also a step away from formal living."

Connie Beale
"If you are looking for a cookie cutter design, I'm not the person for you."
Who: Connie Beale, interior designer and partner, Peacock & Beale
Known For: As a designer, Beale puts an original mark on every project. She often retires a fabric so you won't see it in your neighbor's bedroom as well. Her eye also selects the eclectic collection of antiques and decorative objects in Peacock & Beale, which sells among Beale and Christopher Peacock's line of high-end home furnishings.
Up Next: Beale sees consumers moving away from lazy design. "People want a mix of contemporary and traditional elements, but twisted," she says.
