The biggest trend in design today is “personalization”, the late painter and sculptor Eva Hesse spoke of personalization before many of us were even born! She was speaking in terms of her art when she said,“It just seems to me that “personal” in art, if really pushed, is the most valued quality & what I want so much to find in & for myself.”
Whether you are a design professional or an educated homeowner you’ve probably heard the term “kitchen work triangle”. In fact it’s probably one of the first things you learn when endeavoring to create a new kitchen. Who thought this up? It is actually the result of a study made at the University of Illinois in the 1950s! If you’re wondering if it could be outdated, just think of how much kitchens have changed since then in terms of products, appliances and how we use them.
If you’ve spent any time researching cabinets for your new kitchen or bath you’ve probably come across then name Wood-Mode. It’s the nation’s largest manufacturer of custom cabinetry for kitchens, baths and other rooms throughout the home and they’ve been around for 42 years. I learned that Wood-Mode has great name recognition in the industry for good reason. Their booth at KBIS was impressive and fun! Four yellow Lab pups were on hand to demonstrate one of their lifestyle concepts, The Pet Parlor.
