At Bentwood Luxury Kitchens, we are very excited to share a special Dealer project, as well as highlight true professionals in the kitchen business. One of our newest dealers is Al Rosenthal of Alpine Kitchen Design located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  We originally met Al at our KBIS booth when exhibiting at the Orlando and Las Vegas trade shows-- “This booth really got my attention,” Al shared.  “A high-quality product with full range of door styles and finishes was something I was looking for.” So, when the time was right, Bentwood Owner Kevin Bryant was pleased to set Al up as a new dealer and welcome him into the Bentwood family.
