Throwback Thursday

Here’s a little Faux French Country.  This was a display in a kitchen and bath showroom.  It’s hard to make out, but the cool detail here is the edge using and egg and dart moulding made with Corian.

Throwback Thursday

A Top En-counter fabricated these shower walls for a trade show almost 20 years ago……..how time flies.  Everything was hand cut – no fancy CNC Machine back then.  I still think it’s pretty and doesn’t look too dated except for the white fixtures.  However, now that white everything is making a strong comeback they might just be “on trend” in the near future!

Loving Lavender

The color Lavender isn’t usually the first countertop color that comes to mind when designing a kitchen space.  But…………as you can see it feels fresh,  summery and beach-y; and it should.  This kitchen is in Surfside CA.  In another part of the house our color loving customer chose a yellow countertop.  I wish I could find the photo.  The point is:  Sometimes Lavender just works.

Throwback Thursday

This photo is of a Corian bathroom vanity top for the Orange County ASID Showcase house. I’m not sure of the exact year but I think it was ’92 or ’93; not too long after A Top En-counter was founded.

Something unique and interesting is that the “ribbon/swag” pattern on the backsplash was ETCHED! Who knew you could etch a solid surface product! We didn’t at the time. The wonderfully talented interior designer who’s name escapes me after all these years had the creativity and foresight to try it.

I think you might agree that this timeless classic design, very traditional, still holds up after 20-something years.
