Showrooms Modern 19 th Century Space BRANDY COHEN and ERIKA KLIMENKO with BUREAU AD 210 Design House, Chicago, IL Finding the right space to tell the company's story is a key element for any design firm, but relocating to a building built in the 1800s was an unexpected turn for 210 Design House of Chicago, IL. Brandy Cohen and Erika Klimenko of 210 Design House – along with input from Chicago architectural firm Bureau AD and a number of vendor partners – brought the vision for the 8,000-sq.-ft., three-story space to life. Even the basement was converted to a level that serves as a meeting place and houses some kitchen displays, bath vanities and other smaller vignettes. Though the space is new to the company, the firm itself has designed with and represented the Snaidero and Plain & Fancy cabinetry brands for over 20 years. There was a strong desire to reflect that experience and their design capabilities to cus- tomers, as well as maintain some of the historical integrity of the building, leaving beams, exposed brick and even the old elevator mechanism intact. The first two floors of the building are dedicated to cabinetry from Italian company Snaidero, including contemporary lines Elegante, Way, Opera, Look and Frame in various finishes. While the first floor is very "by the book" as far as design, the second floor is ultra-designed so that visitors can see what is possible. High-gloss wood finishes, sliding-door systems, closet and wardrobe systems and lacquered wall paneling are among the offerings here. Cabinets from Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in Pennsylvania, including Taliesan, Millbrook and Statesman, are featured on the third floor, in a design that features a number of individual 'rooms.' The space was designed this way to educate the visitor about how varied even one cabinet line can be with all of the door finish options and selections available. In keeping with the upscale ambiance, furnishings from Italian firm MisuraEmme are featured throughout the three floors. In addition, 210 Design House displays include Katonah hardware, stone countertops and backsplash tiles and a mix of faucets and sinks from Franke, ROHL, Dornbracht and Kohler. Appliance lines include Wolf, Gaggenau, Miele, Sub-Zero and Asko. GOLD 56 Kitchen & Bath Design News • August 2019
