Celebrate Green Living’s showroom makeover this Thursday

Posted by    |    June 28th, 2012 at 5:50 am

What’s the first thing you do after completing a home remodeling project? Throw a party to show it off, of course! And that’s exactly what Green Living is doing this Thursday evening at its Design District showroom. Drop in from 5 to 8 p.m. to check out the newly revamped space and enjoy cocktails and bites catered by South Paw Organic Grill. As most remodels do, Green Living’s idea started small and grew into a massive undertaking. “We began working with The Cabinet Concierge, a local kitchen and bath consultant, who has built a home base and life-size kitchen in our showroom for helping clients design spaces,” explains Jin Hewitt, Marketing Manager for Green Living. ”He wanted to build some cabinets for the showroom, and that turned into producing an entire kitchen!” The new kitchen will not only show off the Cabinet Concierge’s cabinets, but also a chic recycled glass countertop from Vetrazzo. Displayed in “charisma blue” (don’t you love that name?!), the countertop features assorted glass from recycled beverage bottles. Ferguson is outfitting the kitchen with hardware, giving it the perfect final touch for entertaining!

But GL didn’t stop at the kitchen. No, they took it one step further and gave their point of sale stations a makeover, as well! Each of the two stations features a different ec0-friendly countertop. The Elements by Durcon is a unique take on a green counter top. It is made of quartz and recycled glass, but it has a solid look as opposed to a particulate appearance. It’s more uniform and polished, which, Jin explains, “fits more traditional and contemporary styles.”

The other point of sale station will be outfitted with a soapstone slab by Dorado. What makes this soapstone more eco-friendly is that it’s taken from boulders, so energy isn’t wasted extracting it from the earth. It has a more rustic appearance and gives a totally different look than the glass countertop options.

The point of sale counters are also getting a fresh look with new zero-VOC stain in Weathered Grey and Golden Oak. “As of now, we carry low-VOC alternatives, but we’re excited about bringing in a new VOC-free line,” Jin says. This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as new products go for Green Living. But I’ve got to save some surprises for Thursday night, don’t I?!
