Poggenpohl opened their newly re-designed showroom in Boston in October with help from BLANCO and celebrity iron chef Ken Oringer, chef/owner of Clio, Toro and his new restaurant opening this fall Coppa. Poggenpohl unveiled their newest line of custom kitchens including the Porsche Design P’7340 Kitchen (all of the new Poggenpohl displays feature BLANCO sinks and faucets). The event was well-attended by press, designers, influencers, showrooms and local dignitaries.
Located in the heart of Denver’s cultural theater district, the new Four Seasons is a 45-story landmark hotel and home to 102 spectacular private residences. BLANCO PERFORMA and PRECISION™ sinks are among the prestigious luxury amenities that are part of “living a Four Seasons Life.” A carefree lifestyle that combines the convenience and culture of city living with active outdoor escapes and the 24/7 attention of the legendary Four Seasons’ staff.
Located on floors 18 to 45, Four Seasons Private Residences inspires with stunning interiors and wall-to-wall windows that open to breathtaking Rocky Mountain and cityscape views. The collection of 102 Private Residences includes one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floor plans, ranging from one-bedrooms of approximately 964 sq. ft. to approximately 5,171 sq. ft. Each square foot of the Private Residences has been carefully thought out by the award-winning designers of Clausen-Chewning. Craig Iverson, Architectural Design Sales and EuroBath & Tile worked closely with the design team to incorporate BLANCO into this exceptional project.
BLANCO is what’s hot in sinks this year! Please enjoy our latest public relations hits from Better Homes & Gardens, Kansas City Homes & Gardens, The Wholesaler, K+BB, Surroundings and the Retail Observer. FLOW™, MicroEdge™, SILGRANIT® II and ARCON™ continue to grab the spotlight, and the press is interested as well as in BLANCO’s relationships with influencers like Eric Ripert. As KCH&G points out… BLANCO offers “the latest and greatest for the kitchen” this year.
BLANCO sinks were featured prominently in the 26th Annual Builder’s Choice projects as awarded by Builder Magazine this October. Here are a few of the award winners that specified BLANCO sinks as part of their designs.
