Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20, the House Beautiful magazine presents its Kitchen of the Year. This year, the Kitchen of the Year will host non-stop presentations on the most influential design trends, interactive programs with designers, craftsmen and lifestyle leaders, the ultimate Strawberry Jam competition and up-close culinary demonstrations from an incredible array of celebrated and innovative chefs.
Featuring presentations from incredible chefs such as Todd English and Sandra Lee, this event is not to be missed. The summer’s must-see destination for brilliant kitchen design and innovative culinary happenings, America’s “dream kitchen,” presented in in partnership with Tishman Speyer, is now in its fifth year.
To mark this special fifth anniversary kitchen, House Beautiful has enlisted top kitchen designer Mick De Giulio to bring his passion for comfortable, livable and beautiful kitchens to NYC’s Rockefeller Plaza. Mr. De Giulio believes “a great kitchen has a magic to it that transforms the physical room into a feeling. People are drawn to that kitchen, and they may not know why. The kitchen sings. It is my job to write the music”
The 1,000-square-foot kitchen conservatory features two fully-functioning kitchens, indoor and outdoor, where specialty cocktails and appetizers will be offered throughout the day. The kitchen brings together a wide array of premiere building and home decoration companies, including Belgard Hardscapes, Caesarstone, Kohler, KraftMaid, Whirlpool, Aircraft Scentsticks, Ann Sacks, Circa Lighting, The Container Store, de Giulio kitchen design, Frontgate, Glidden, Grandin Road, Grothouse, Hickory Chair and Kravet, among others.
