Designer Profile: Chelly Wentworth

The Monogram Experience Center (MEC) brings designers to Louisville, Kentucky, for three-day experiences to learn about Monogram, the design process, our appliances – and even cook with them! We interviewed each designer to learn a little more about their background and design experiences.

SRFD: How did you become interested in design?

Chelly: I wanted to find a career where I could be creative and helpful, while making a living. It’s such a privilege to spend the day this way.

SRFD: Tell us about a recent project you really enjoyed.

Chelly: Not too long ago we completed a small kitchen project in a jewel box of a home. The cook had waited a lifetime to have the kitchen of her dreams that really worked for her and her family. It was fun planning out every single detail and rewarding to see that it fits the home perfectly and know the client is very satisfied with the end result.

SRFD: A trend you’re over?

Chelly: Busily patterned, ubiquitous, granite counter tops.

SRFD: A trend you’re excited about?

Chelly: Clean spaces with lasting appeal and fewer excesses.

SRFD: What did you learn in Louisville?

Chelly: I learned a lot about both speed and induction cooking.  I also learned that Monogram has at least as good products as their competitors in all categories.


Monogram Modern Home in Portland April 25 & 26

Join us on a cross-country modern design road trip with Dwell. First destination, Portland, Oregon!

04-23-15_Monogram_InstagramPost-1What’s happening in Portland this weekend? Dwell and Monogram recognize Portland for its culture and community of makers, visionaries and craftsmen. It’s the perfect location to kick off our tour.

We will be popping up the Monogram Modern Home directly adjacent to Rejuvenation (1100 SE Grand Ave, Portland, OR, 97214) , one of our favorite local spots in what we are affectionately calling the “Design District.”

On Saturday, April 25th, the home will host a series of Continuing Education Units. Check out the details and sign up here!

On Sunday, April 26th, we will be open all day to the public while teaming up with Rejuvenation to support their Sunday Emporium, continuing the celebration and recognition of craftsmen in Portland who are creating inspired designs. Plus, you will have the chance to enter to win a Monogram wine reserve if you stop by.

A full schedule of events is listed here. Sign up for CEUs, join us at the open house and follow us on social media for surprise – yet to be announced – events and giveaways.
