My Favorite from the #HowDoYouPerlick Design Contest

Perlick2016-1008

The #HowDoYouPerlick Design Contest asked four industry experts to design a vignette highlighting the company’s refrigeration and beverage dispensers in each of the following categories: kitchen, outdoor, entertainment and rest of home. From the entries received, four finalists had their designs built into the Perlick booth during the recent KBIS.

Perlick announced the winner – chosen by attendees – during KBIS, and although the winning design was very innovative and clever, I chose another as my favorite. I’ll tell you a little bit about each of the four projects, and then tell you why I liked my favorite so much.

Cart before the Horse

This winning entry by Richard Anuszkiewicz of Alt Breeding Schwartz Architects was designed around the famous phrase “putting the horse before the cart.” He chose custom wood door overlays, a leather countertop, gold-accented hardware and a sink and faucet in an equestrian print to create an entertaining bar cart. From Perlick, the designer featured the Signature Series Dual-Zone Freezer/Refrigerator Drawers.

Zen Credenza

This vignette was designed by Rose Dostal, AIA, ASID, of RMD Designs and features Asian influence and bold color. Gold was prevalent in the display in the countertop, sconce detail and geometric mirror. She included Perlick’s Signature Series Sottile Wine Reserve and Refrigerator.

Charred Bar

Designed by Michele Alfano of MODmadeNY Studio, this entertaining outdoor display features both the HP24 24-in. Signature Series Dual-Zone Outdoor Refrigerator/Wine Reserve and the outdoor model. A Signature Series Outdoor Beer Dispenser tops off the display and pairs with bottle storage/service in the top of the man-made concrete island bar.

Wet Your Whistle Kitchen

This vignette, created by Patricia Davis Brown, NCIDQ, CKD, CBD, of Patricia Davis Brown Designs, was definitely my favorite. And maybe that is unfair since it was the largest display of all four, but she put some really creative thinking into this kitchen – right down to the martini glass-shaped sink and olive-topped soap dispenser. Another whimsical element was the “chalkboard” wall. Perlick products in her vignette included the Adara Beer Dispenser and a Signature Series Refrigerator, Refrigerator Drawers, Ice Maker and Wine Reserve.

After touring the Perlick booth, attendees voted in their favorite design. The winner of the #HowDoYouPerlick Design Contest was determined following a popular vote during KBIS 2016. For his winning design, Anuszkiewicz will receive a Perlick product of his choice.
