It was a special night for KR+H, too, as our work is showcased in United Marble's new space. KR+H was delighted when we were invited by Tom and John Kilfoyle to design one of the vignettes for their showroom.
After the opening, Paul reflected on how it was wonderful to come together in celebration with professional friends.
Alan, Karla, and Paul enjoyed having time to simply relax and enjoy the company of people in our industry. There was a nice mix of architects, designers, and builders. Paul was reminded of the many long standing relationships we have, how we all need each other, and that there exists in our community a great camaraderie of dreamers and makers.
Thank you Tom, John, and Kristen Kilfoyle! Your family business that began in 1987 offers the spirit of community. That sense of collaboration is reflected in your work, your showroom design, and your many long standing relationships. All the best in your new showroom location at the Boston Design Center.
Our vignette was inspired by the salle de bain in an apartment that Armand Albert Rateau designed for fashion designer Jeanne Lanvin in 1928. Some rooms from this Parisian apartment are on permanent display at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. Our vignette will continue to develop with a carved pedestal sink and some bronze and satinwood cabinetry still to come. For the present, KR+H is showing an element from our hidden kitchen series; a collection of furniture pieces that encapsulate the functional elements of a kitchen inside simple forms and rich surface materials. - Paul Reidt, president, KR+H
