Showroom displays are fun. While there is no client involved it becomes a challenge to be met by you and your co-designers.
- Different floors need to work together
- Display had to show the current trends
- Needed to featuring multiple types of countertops
- Display as many new/custom features as possible
- Lowering the twelve-foot ceiling height
- Fit into an unusually-shaped space
Tying multiple floors together using 6”x36” dark grey wood-looking tile, laid on a staggered patterned worked well with the tile and concrete floors next to it.
Two-toned cabinetry of wired brushed hickory with a grey stain wash, combined with maple wood in a dark slate finish is a current trend.
Counter tops: combination of splashy granite and white Caesarstone grounded the display. A custom-designed table of ash wood, with heavy distressing and grey washed stain added warmth.
