As a member of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Texas-Oklahoma chapter, we love to sponsor and participate in their creative events. In the past, we have created intricate clothing garments that incorporate our porcelain and slate products as a part of the fashion forward event, Product Runway. This year in lieu of the ever-popular Product Runway, we participated in a brand-new design challenge: Product Innovate Jubilee.
When COVID 19 first made its appearance, it certainly took the world by surprise and made us all take pause. During this unprecedented halt, we decided to go ahead with our previously planned remodel, since it was necessary to close the studio down.
The showstopper in our new space is the gorgeous new state-of-the-art kitchen. The new cabinets, supplied by Kitchen and Bath Concepts, have a modern bronze metallic finish and show off the breathtaking Eternal Gold 12mm porcelain countertops. Upon closer inspection, you’ll find an induction cooktop by Invisicook. You heard that right – the porcelain surface is actually a cooktop! There is also a moveable counter/table that is also porcelain clad, but in the stunning white color. This offers a lovely contrast to the cabinets and the veining with the Eternal Gold slabs.
With the expanded kitchen, we plan to host may great events. From professional chef demos to cozy informal gatherings with clients; continuing education classes to new product launches, we look forward to seeing friends and clients in our new space when we are allowed to gather again.
Should you need to powder your nose, classic Italian Borghini marble has been reimagined in our bathroom for a fabulous design that exudes elegance. The walls are covered in slabs that are finished in a grooved and polished together with a chiseled stripe pattern. The sink appears to be floating and the water disappears to the back with no visible drain. It’s a marvel and a haven all on its own.
While there is a lot of change going on in the world right now to combat COVID-19, there are a few things that will never change with Thorntree, and that is seeing to it that our customers are happy with their service and materials that they purchase from us. We will continue our tradition of excellent customer service, keep our quality products on hand, and look forward to continuing to push through these tumultuous times.
Thank you for your continued trust in Thorntree!
