We wanted to share a timely project that celebrates entertaining at home that will have you thinking about updating your own recreational space in the future. When Interior Designer Debra Moore stopped by the Bentwood of Chicago showroom at the Merchandise Mart and met Senior Kitchen Designer Steve Karp, she was impressed and quickly set up a client introduction meeting. Debra's special client project involved taking an existing penthouse located on the beautiful shores of Michigan and transforming it into an Empty Nester Sanctuary. After a successful design collaboration like this, all we can say is ‘WOW’.
A Fresh Start with New Contemporary Kitchen
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. A combination of white and natural walnut cabinetry came together for a fresh new Kitchen design. Upper glass fronts on the perimeter white cabinetry add to the contemporary design highlighting the warmth of premium walnut for a stunning combination.
Houston High Rise Showcases Transitional Custom Millwork
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. His client had purchased two units with the intention to open them up into one large unit. Hence, our project called for a very detailed set of drawings for a sizable kitchen and breakfast room. And for these two spaces, every vertical surface was to either be covered in cabinetry, custom millwork, or tile backsplash. It is clear to see why this Bentwood of Houston project won the ‘ASID Ruby Award’ for ‘Best Use of Material’.
