I have to give my collegues and myself a good pat on the back. It's been a busy year for us at Henrybuilt and it's all starting to pan out:

First, the much anticipated launch of our new company Viola Park, which offers a kitchen system that shares much of the same sensibilities of Henrybuilt's at a mid-ranged price level. It's goal is to give all of us aspiring to Henrybuilt an option for a well-designed cabinetry system. At it's core is a fully standardized system that's versatile enough to fit most spaces and fit any look from traditional to modern minimalist with an equal level of functionality and refinement. Just like Henrybuilt, the quality is top notch, differing from Henrybuilt in material options and hardware finishes. However, it shares many of the same construction techniques and functional hardware. We're able to offer the system at a lower price by consolidating design assistance into an online interface that takes you through a few simple levels of questions to present a set of design options to fit your situation.

I personally had a hand in helping develop the cabinetry options, the website's design tools, and the aluminum pulls/handles that are Viola Park exclusives. So exciting to see it all come together after months of preparation! Expect to see much more for Viola Park!

The second bit of exciting news: Henrybuilt is featured in I.D. magazine's New and Notable edition! This is for a project I also had a role in ushering to reality: the Workspace Component Group. It's an integrated set of tools (cutting board, colander, and knife block) designed to integrate with our backsplash system and interface with the workzone around the sink. Hooray! This system was also recently nominated in the Interior Design Magazine products of the year, which has yet to reveal the finalists. Fingers crossed!
