Robesonia, Pa., April 1, 2008 — Adelphi Kitchens & Cabinetry has custom-designed and installed a high quality contemporary kitchen in Fromm Electric Supply’s new Lighting & Appliance Design Center, a conceptual showcase for the residential remodeling, building and interior design industry professionals which opened March 26, 2008 in Allentown, Pa.
“It’s a privilege to be a part of Fromm’s Design Center. From inspiration to installation, Adelphi’s vignette will serve as a working space for industry builders and designers to educate consumers on the variety of choices there are in remodeling a kitchen or bathroom,” said Stratton Yatron, chief financial officer, Adelphi Kitchens & Cabinetry.
As a resource for the trade, the new Design Center provides the building and design trade – builders, architects, kitchen contractors, electricians and interior designers – with a life-size resource to give their customers a visual and hands-on experience. In a fully-functioning kitchen vignette, designers have the ability to show how various materials, products and lighting can affect a room. With a more tangible experience, consumers are well-informed and can make confident, educated decisions.
“Before consumers invest their time and money, they’ll have a true sense of how design elements need to integrate for the look and feel they’re trying to achieve. Experiencing the showroom first-hand will allow consumers to understand the recommendations their design professionals make regarding finishes on wood grains, cabinetry hardware, the color and materials for countertops, flooring and appliances … and how various lighting options can enhance it all,” said Yatron.
The Adelphi kitchen vignette features a contemporary Legacy modified door style cabinetry doors in a deep Walnut Natural wood, which is contrasted by the island made of a light, speckled Birdseye Maple wood and black granite countertops with a unique milled finish. The Walnut doors feature different width stiles and rails and varying thickness between the stiles and rails, enhancing visual interest. The sleek contemporary design blends well with the cutting-edge Stainless Steel GE Monogram appliances. The kitchen features Andes Collection Peruvian Travertine tile and adjustable soft lighting from Translite Sonoma. The display is fully functional to help education potential consumers on the endless options available to them for cooking and entertaining. Live cooking demonstrations are planned on a regular basis in the Adelphi display kitchen.
Fromm’s Lighting & Appliance Design Center features more than a dozen live displays showcasing lighting, lighting control, appliances, home comfort products, cabinetry, countertops and plumbing fixtures. These working vignettes include kitchens, bathrooms, dining rooms, laundry rooms, and a home theater.
