Kitchen design with House Beautiful

House Beautiful kitchen and bath editor Carisha Swanson and interior designer Summer Thornton hosted a conversation on creating a fantasy kitchen at Wood-Mode’s showroom during Design Chicago at the Merchandise Mart. Over 100 designers, architects and design professionals attended the event to learn a trick or two on how to design a kitchen ready for food and drink indulgence. 

“Design Chicago proved to be another successful event for theMart and for the Wood-Mode Lifestyle Design Center. It was the ideal event to introduce our newest showroom display to so many design-focused professionals,” says Brooks Gronlund, president and COO of Wood-Mode. “In addition, Design Chicago presents an opportunity for us to build new relationships with designers and take the pulse of the design community through the various events and seminars that take place during the two-day event.”
