From the President |
I hope you are enjoying this fabulous summer in the city. The weather has been wonderful for our summer soirees, our rooftop parties and our barbecues and boat rides. Best of all our clients can really enjoy those great outdoor kitchens we designed for them!
KBIS registration is in full swing so please register now if you plan to attend. To be held once again at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from Jan 9 - 11, 2018, KBIS 2018 promises to deliver and perhaps surpass the excitement and wonder of previous shows. All of the premier kitchen cabinetry companies will attend to showcase both the trendy and the traditional, the plain and the fancy. Hardware companies such as Richelieu and Hafele continue to push the envelope and seduce us with their amazing "jewelry." What also thrills us every year are the sanctuaries that the bathroom plumbing vendors built on site to illustrate the latest trends in spa experience. We love it. And if you register by November 10 with promo code STAY, you may win a Stay & Play package from KBIS so you can stay and have some fun in Orlando. See more details at kbis.com. Enjoy the rest of summer!
