Tangram, a curator of highly creative commercial interior environments and workspaces headquartered in Southern California, is pleased to announce furniture installation is complete on The Mission’s at Kern County’s Lee and Krystyna Jaimeson Transitional Home for Women and Children. The home is located in Bakersfield, CA.

The Mission provides for the Lee and Krystyna Jaimeson Transitional Home for women and their children who are experiencing homelessness and need access to safe shelter and supportive recovery programs. Residents receive education and recovery services, meals, restroom, shower and personal hygiene supplies access, counseling and medical care, along with case management and spiritual support. Opened in October 2021, The Mission’s Transitional Home renders long-term rehabilitation with an emphasis on providing lasting recovery skills.

The reason we built this space was to provide a sustainable, safe and a happy option for women and children,” says Krystyna Jamieson. “The furniture Tangram provided lives, breathes and works well in the space. But most importantly, it helps create a safe and comfortable place that is going to last. It gives them an idea of what a happy home looks like.

Curated furniture selection purchased through Tangram, The Mission’s Transitional Home received an uplift to the new Mission location sticking to the overall theme of modern comfort, using neutrals and blues throughout the facility. Tangram’s furniture selection and installation services provided a bright, light and inviting environment that offered a feeling of comfort and safety to residents and staff. Contract-grade furniture with a residential feel from Steelcase (West Elm), Coalesse, National, Hon, Sit On It, Global and BluDot were used throughout the private offices, lobby, meeting spaces, kitchen and rooms.

Every single living space has been created for them, and its something that they can be proud of, in the space that they can live in and have their kids with them and be in a safe environment as well, thats really really key,” Executive Director of the Mission at Kern County Carlos Baldovinos said.

Tangram relies on creating innovative workspaces and sharing its success by giving back to the community. The company’s philosophy of providing people with diverse spaces for any type of work has remained at the forefront of their organization. At the core, developing incredible experiences with a centric focus around the people, is where their success lies.
