We are so honored to be among the candidates for Interior Design's Best of Year awards! If you are so inclined, please cast your vote for Bornholm Kitchen in the cabinetry category. Voting is open until next Monday, 10/10.
As described by Interior Design: Bornholm Kitchen offers warmly modern kitchens, islands, vanities and furniture. The authentic Scandinavian aesthetic is inspired by the spirit of Bornholm, a tiny island off the coast of Denmark – yet handcrafted sustainably in the U.S. Designer Susan Serra calls it, "A kitchen with social skills."Posted By: Kelly
Take a look at our monthly Ideabook we have put together for Houzz. Obviously, Scandinavian style is near and dear to our hearts. Here are some of our favorite products and accessories that exemplify the Scandinavian design philosophy.Posted By: Kelly
Susan has just returned from a pilgrimage to Copenhagen and Bornholm to cultivate important business relationships, scout potential new product partnerships, and most importantly, visit with family! She returned not only with treasured experiences and artifacts, but with multiple memory cards filled with photos! We'll be sharing many of them with you over the coming weeks, but for now, here's a sneak peek at some gorgeous and unique flooring options.
This one is perhaps my favorite. It's wood, but cut to resemble brick. I just love how it's cut to exploit the wonderful knots and roping of the natural wood.
And who doesn't love classic Herringbone floors? This charm and authenticity just cannot be duplicated.
Here's an example of the ubiquitous blonde wood flooring that is so coveted here in the states. I'd love to have these running through my house.
And for a departure from wood, some rich ceramic tile with a lovely worn patina.
Check back soon for more of Susan's photos from her trip!Posted By: Kelly
We couldn't be more proud to have been covered in our home town paper not once, but twice! Today, Susan was featured in an article (Market Ready) about preparing a house to sell, and gave some great tips on how to most efficiently outfit your kitchen for resale.
If you decide to replace an appliance, and your budget allows for only one, it’s a toss-up between the range and refrigerator, said Susan Serra, a kitchen designer who founded Bornholm Kitchen in Sag Harbor, N.Y., and writes a blog called the Kitchen Designer. “Some stoves can really look worn, even get a little rusty, and look horrible,” she said. If that’s the case, the stove is what you should replace.“But the refrigerator is the largest appliance,” she said. “So if the range is in decent condition, then replace the refrigerator, because it will make the largest visual impact.”
For those who haven't seen the coverage we previously received back in May, here's the quick profile that was written up on the new Bornholm Line, likening it to handmade furniture; a categorization that we accept with pride, especially as the line is handmade right here in the USA.Posted By: Kelly
Thank you, Leslie and Mervyn for honoring Bornholm Kitchen with the 2011 KB Culture award for the cabinet category! Having been ardent followers of these esteemed awards year after year, it is very meaningful to even have been among the candidates this round. The program honors companies that exemplify innovative thinking and product development, fine aesthetic style, and advancements in original functionality and efficiency. We are both humbled and honored and look forward to exceeding expectations in the coming year.Posted By: Kelly
