Our American Treasures ® Florence Bookcase is a study in simplicity and style. Reflecting a hint of Italian architectural elements and styling, this piece can bring a refreshing accent to any room style. And, adjustable shelves and a bottom drawer provide handy display and storage space.
In many homes today, the master bath is no longer just another room –but a complete suite. It’s evolved to become more of a private oasis that truly lets you escape from all the stresses and strains of the day.
In fact, many masters today are outfitted with walk-in closets completely custom-tailored to the owner’s needs, as well as dressing, sitting, exercise areas and other features one might find in a luxury spa or resort.
To help homeowners create their own private escape, we’re always working on new designs for the master bath area. To see some of our most recent bath designs and installations, visit the cabinetry section of our website.
One of the newest pieces to join our American Treasures® Collection of copyrighted furniture designs, this one now joins others in the collection that offer a versatile style option for any room in the home.

According to the association’s press release — Out of the nearly 500 designs submitted to the 2012 NKBA Design Competition rose some presiding themes. Fixtures, finishes, materials, color palettes, technology, shapes, focal points and overall geometry are a few among the complex considerations that talented creative-thinkers factor into their plans when generating a room design.
One of the trends noted was “shimmering surfaces.” As outlined in the press release,” Shimmering surfaces, shining fixtures, high-sheen finishes, and perfectly placed lighting accents are a prominent personality trait of current kitchens.”
The galley kitchen design we created with Bastille Metal Works in our High Point showroom reflects this trend perfectly. Bastille provided the countertops and range hood to complement our cabinetry.
If you are not familiar with this company, be sure to visit their website – www.bastillemetalworks.com. They specialize in custom-made zinc countertops and pewter bar tops – all custom cast with your choice of metal, finish and edge profile. Their artisan team also crafts custom metal range hoods, zinc mantles and furnishings, including zinc tabletops.
This month we’re pleased to put the spotlight on California designer Julie Mifsud www.juliemifsuddesign.com . For Julie, no design job is too small. It’s a business philosophy that’s served her well as she’s built her expansive design business and its loyal client base, which includes some of the Bay area’s biggest personalities.
It’s also what put her in touch with us. At the time, a potential client contacted her to get her thoughts on a Wolfe Range with red knobs that he was thinking about installing in his kitchen. She drove an hour and forty-five minutes to his home to discuss the range selection. During the meeting she asked her client a lot of questions to learn more about his lifestyle, his design tastes and his hopes for the kitchen itself. Her client lived alone but Julie soon learned that his home would quickly fill up with grandchildren, family and friends during the holidays. She also learned that the kitchen was truly the heart of this home – where everyone gathered.
“As we spoke about ideas for the kitchen beyond the range, I learned that he had always wanted a space that captured an Old World look and feel reminiscent of his European grandmother’s own kitchen – aged looks, meticulous detailing, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere,” Julie explains in the Featured Designer profile on our site. “ And, he wanted a kitchen that would effectively and efficiently serve his needs when he was home alone, but could also easily accommodate the extended family when they came to visit.”
With its hand-finished designs, Old World influences and versatile custom cabinetry capabilities, Julie thought Habersham offered the perfect design solution. She showed her client Habersham’s kitchen and bath portfolio and he agreed that Habersham had the look he wanted. Together with her contractor, Jeff Nelms, Nelms Construction, Habersham Sales Representative Jim Solada and the Habersham custom cabinetry team, Julie began working on a project that would grow from that single range to include a complete kitchen and bulter’s pantry redesign, guest bath cabinetry and design solutions for other rooms in the home as well.
