When a house fire destroyed a Dallas family home, a new opportunity emerged to change things up with a new contemporary style and to gain the function and storage they were missing, especially in the kitchen. Interior Designer Traci Connell, of Traci Connell Design, brought her clients to Bentwood of Dallas. There, they met with Kitchen Designer Emily Martin, who showed them the possibilities for a new Contemporary Kitchen.

Builder and remodeler, Patrick Price of PE Price Builders, contacted Bentwood of Houston to discuss a high rise project in the process of a remodel.
