Welcome to Our New Showroom!

After 6 years with our previous showroom configuration and displays, we have renovated our space and added 4 new displays that we know you will love. Our premier cabinetry line Artcraft, manufactured in Ontario, Canada, is featured in a sleek style with high gloss finishes and flat cut Walnut veneers. The veneers are horizontally grain-matched for a stunning effect on the uppers and tall cabinets. We have a Miele fully integrated refrigerator and dishwasher, for an uninterrupted look of smooth materials. We also feature solid walnut interior drawers and accessories for an upgraded appearance as well as our standard aluminum inserts and dividers. Each of our upper cabinets has a special type of flap door, one is a smooth-motion flap with top hinges and a mechanism that allows the door to stop at any angle, one has a lift door that moves up and out of the way for handy access to the interior contents or to put items away without a door in your way! The third is the ultimate in convenience hardware, a power operated lift door with interior lighting on a door switch. The door lifts with a simple press on the face of the door and lowers with a soft touch button that is neatly hidden away when the door is closed. We love this display and know you will too.

Our second display is by Crestwood, built in Salina, Kansas. This display allowed the opportunity to showcase my true passion, Spanish Colonial design. Tucson has the privilege of being the home to many wonderful Spanish Colonial styled houses, and plenty of them are the creations of Josias Joesler who brought warmth and tranquility to his beautiful homes with the use of deep porches, natural materials, wrought iron accents and thick adobe or block walls. He created the most peaceful and serene desert dwellings that I’ve ever experienced. So our display is a gracious nod to that beautiful style, with a more traditional inset style construction, white painted fronts with multiple fielded flat paneled doors and a deep charcoal colored base cabinet for a slightly updated feel. The simple plaster hood and wrought iron sconces are a lovely focal point above the Bertazzoni gas range. We also used cement tiles on the backsplash and Carrara marble countertops. Joesler frequently used subtly decorated cement tiles, mainly on the floors of his homes. We love the warmth and grace of this display and hope you will too.

Our third display is by Columbia Cabinets, a new line for us with a wonderful selection of custom elements and immense flexibility. This is a wall storage unit that might be seen as a side board or buffet in a dining room. The doors are a wide framed Shaker style with 4” top rails and 3” side rails, finished in a rich desert brown for the tall and upper cabinets, and a paint with glaze finish on the base cabinets. The door style for the bases is a 5-piece flat center panel door with wide curving frames, a new take on transitional styling. We have also included wall paneling, very popular these days for a finished look, made from Abet Laminati textured wood grained high pressure laminate. It is a very convincing look and feel to wood, but with the durable properties of laminate.

The fourth display is another by Artcraft, a bath vignette with wall-hung base cabinets anchored at each end with horizontal grain caramelized bamboo columns. The doors on the vanity cabinets are back-painted frosted glass with 1/8” aluminum frames, very chic and spa-like. We have included a mirror framed in Bamboo with a fixed shelf at the bottom, shimmery mosaic tile that resembles sea glass, wall mounted vanity faucets and whimsical crystal sconces above the mirror.

Please come to see our new showroom! Our hours are M-TH, 9 am – 4:30 pm. Welcome!
