In mid-May, I was honored to be invited by Signature Kitchen Suite and Designhounds by Modenus along with 21 other top design professionals and influencers to experience SKS’s 23,000 square foot, brand new “Experience & Design Center”. We became acquainted with the SKS appliances in food-centric Napa Valley, California, the perfect location to unwind and redirect focus. The Center is dedicated to educating industry professionals not just on appliance features but on the “WHYS” behind those features.
Meeting rooms with state of the art media equipment, numerous (I lost count) full and beautifully designed kitchen displays to experience SKS and LG appliances in situ, an upscale working pub/bar/lounge and separate formal dining room which showcases SKS wine storage and a world class test kitchen with SKS appliances everywhere to teach cooking methods to visitors, complete with many tv displays to show every angle of the chef’s preparation steps, collectively, is one, huge WOW. And that’s only some of the features of this facility!
So, what is/who are Designhounds?? It’s a group of passionate design professionals, bloggers and micro influencers, an ever changing group who participate, based on their interests, in focused design excursions, brand sponsored events, US and international design fairs and other design specific events. Designhounds participate to be inspired, to learn, to be immersed in cultural experiences and ultimately, to grow personally and professionally.
