Habersham Italian Island Inspired by the grand designs and styles that defined Italian Renaissance architecture, our Italian Island  brings any kitchen to the center of attention.

Ideal for entertaining and family gatherings, two dramatic corbels anchor the top overhang to facilitate easy interaction between guests and hosts during meal preparation and serving.  Adding to its appeal, drawers and compartments  put everything within easy reach.  Simple design lines and subtle decorative molding complete the look.

Houzz Study | Majority of Home Renovation Professionals Regain Pre-Recession Revenues, Profits

August 5th, 2015

We’re reading more and more good news about the home  industry!  Most recently, the Q2 2015 Houzz Renovation Barometer,which tracks confidence in the home renovation market among industry professionals, points to growing industry confidence being driven by widespread quarterly gains in inquiries, number and size of new projects .   Here’s a quick summary from a press release issued last week by Houzz, a leading platform for home remodeling and design:

Habersham Custom Designs

According to the Houzz  Q2 2015  Renovation Barometer, more than two-thirds of home renovation firms reported 2015 year-to-date revenues and profits to be at or above pre-recession levels, with one in five firms or more reporting revenues and profits to be significantly higher.

“A large majority of home renovation firms on Houzz report a return to pre-recession revenues and profits, irrespective of industry segment or firm size,” said Nino Sitchinava, principal economist at Houzz. “While industry confidence remains strong for the remainder of 2015, professionals tell us that the shortage of skilled labor continues to be a key challenge to growth.”

The Q2 2015 Barometer reflects steady optimism in market growth among professionals, with high index scores of 69* or higher in market confidence across all company types, in line with Q1 readings (71 or higher).

The Houzz Renovation Barometer study is conducted quarterly and presents analysis of responses to an online survey sent out to a national U.S. panel of architects, interior designers, general contractors/remodelers, design-build firms, and building/renovation and landscape/outdoor specialties.

June 2015 Featured Product | Catskill Media Cabinet

June 9th, 2015

Habersham Catskill Media CabinetThis month we put a special product spotlight on our new Catskill Media Cabinet. Like some of our other popular designs, this one evolved out of a custom piece we crafted for a client.

With this design , we looked to some of the styles and characteristics that define the delightful Catskills region of Upstate New York, once one of the most popular resort destinations in the country.  Known for its beautiful woods, waterfalls, and hiking trails, the area, just 150 or so miles from  Manhattan,  has attracted artists, musicians, writers and other creative types who have second homes there.

From craftsman style homes to cozy cabins to other influences that complement the surrounding natural environment, we found great inspiration in the design lines and styles we found here.  And they’re reflected in this new piece, which is tailored to hold today’s slimmer plasma TV sizes, along with other practical storage features.

It features two upper bi-fold doors and three lower doors with six interior shelves. As with all our custom pieces, it’s available in your choice of finish options and sizes.  Visit the furniture section of our site to see more designs!
