The Mark of Monogram At KBIS 2020

The 2020 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas earlier this year was truly a celebration for Monogram with the launch of two new luxury appliance collections, the Statement Collection and the Minimalist Collection. Inspired by professional culinary spaces highlighting precision-engineered details, the two distinct collections exceed expectations in style and performance.

KBIS attendees enjoyed a first look at the new collections inside the impressive Monogram booth, which featured custom-curated vignettes imagined and brought to life by highly accomplished designer Richard Anuszkiewicz.

Monogram’s KBIS kitchen vignettes were a thought provoking exploration of what a kitchen should or can be. Built around Monogram’s newest Statement and Minimalist collections, each space was meticulously designed to reflect the elegance and craftsmanship that is a signature of Monogram appliances.

A Florida Kosher Kitchen for Entertaining

Rochelle Flug and Eva Staiman of EVRO Interiors have been designing kosher kitchens for more than 35 years. When they were hired to redesign this Southeast Florida kitchen, the client wanted her dream kitchen with plenty of room for hosting – from weekly Sabbath dinners to frequent parties.

“The client desired an elegant and traditional tone, while still having the aesthetics reflect the 21st century,” says Flug. “When we married those styles together, I like to call the result 21st Century Updated Transitional.”

The design process started with the countertops. The client found a quartzite slab with a vein of light purple. This inspired the deep purple island.

“We used a light gray as the neutral in this space, because the client has many different colored tablecloths and textiles she uses when entertaining,” says Flug. “This backdrop allowed her the option to add the color she desired through décor and floral arrangements.” The design team used mirror-front cabinets that give the visual illusion of open shelving, without exposing the cabinet’s contents.

When it comes to kosher kitchens, functionality is key. Given that there are two of each appliance, the space must be maximized and beautifully appealing.

“Monogram ovens are our No. 1 choice when designing a kitchen,” says Staiman. “Not only does the remote-enabled option allow for easy accessibility when away from the home, my clients love being able to leave the racks inside during the self-clean mode. Monogram is a natural favorite.”
