NKBA Launches 30 Under 30 Program

In my last blog, I talked about  the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA)  2015  Design30under30Logo 267x178 NKBA Launches 30 Under 30 Program  © 2009 Habersham HomeCompetition. The association has launched another program for 2015 and I wanted to share that one  with you too .  It’s the NKBA “30 Under 30 program”, which is currently seeking qualified candidates for the upcoming Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS®), to be held January 20 – 22, 2015, in Las Vegas.

As the NKBA press release explains:

This is a great opportunity for industry professionals to nominate an accomplished young individual who is passionate in his or her profession and forward-thinking about the kitchen and bath industry. Additionally, the program also accepts self-nominations. The online nomination form can now be found at NKBA.org/30, and all applications are due August 4, 12 Noon, Eastern Time.

The goal of the 30 Under 30 Program is to acknowledge outstanding young professionals, while helping these individuals to immerse and apply themselves to new opportunities for growth and development in support of the industry. Past 30 Under 30 award recipients have gained immense recognition from the media, the industry, and customers alike.

At KBIS 2015, the newly inducted 30 Under 30 group will conduct valuable research on key industry-relevant topics. On Wednesday, January 21, 2015, the group will present their findings at Center Stage, share the results of their explorations on the KBIS show floor, and answer questions from the audience.

For detailed information on the program, visit NKBA.org/30.

Inspired By Italy. Ideal For Any Decor.

01-1722 Habersham Milan 3 Drawer Chest  During the Spring 2014 High Point Market, we added a number of new furniture designs to our growing collection.  Among them, the Milan 3-Drawer Chest shown here.

Offering an ideal way to bring a touch of sophisticated Italian elegance into today’s home, this piece represents our design team’s reinterpretation of classical design.  The result?  A lovely look with just a hint of modern, contemporary styling.

A feature I really love about this piece is a hidden touch latch compartment.  Inside the middle drawer, our designers have created a special hiding place for jewelry and other valuables.  It’s built into the drawer itself and you just push on it to open and close.
