Caesarstone at KBIS 2013

The Caesarstone booth at KBIS 2013 was the place to be during the show. With a stunning booth which showcased the new Caesarstone colors and a full schedule of events, show attendees filled the booth over the three days in New Orleans.

Acclaimed kitchen designer Mick De Giulio, a longtime supporter of Caesarstone, attended KBIS 2013 in New Orleans where he gave a presentation “Kitchen of the Year: A Five Year Retrospective” on April 19, presented by House Beautiful and Caesarstone.

After being introduced by Caesarstone US CEO, Sagi Cohen, Sean Sullivan, Associate Publisher of House Beautiful, spoke about the rapid growth and impact that Kitchen of the Year has seen since its inception in 2008. He discussed the different techniques past designers such as Jeff Lewis and Tyler Florence have used before handing the microphone over to De Giulio.

De Giulio shared his inspirations for his design of the 2012 House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year at Rockefeller Center, and looked back at the exclusive partnership between Caesarstone and Kitchen of the Year shows. Caesarstone has been a partner since the first Kitchen of the Year five years ago.

“We had a joke when we were designing the kitchen that if we couldn't find a product we could just make it out of Caesarstone" De Giulio said.

Additionally, guests enjoyed Thermador’s state of the art cappuccino bar, Cajun treats from Chef Aaron Burgau from New Orleans’ renowned restaurant Patois, fresh cocktails from Los Angeles based mixologist Aidan Demarest and a panel discussion with bloggers Abigail Stone from Apartment Therapy and Dave Hime from Japanese Trash.

Guests were able to sign up for Caesarstone’s new micrositeThe Interior Collective to be entered to receive special prizes such as SoftScrub product kits and one grand prize iPad.
