Peter Salerno Inc.’s Mendham Showroom Celebrates 1st Anniversary!

Peter Salerno Inc.’s Mendham Showroom Celebrates 1st Anniversary!

One year ago, Peter Salerno Inc. took a leap of faith and opened its second showroom – a quaint but luxurious space along West Main Street in historic Mendham, New Jersey. The move reminded Peter Salerno and his wife Tracy of the risk they took in 1997, when they opened their first showroom location in Wyckoff, New Jersey.

Since their first showroom opened, Peter Salerno Inc. has become the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. Even when their re-designed main showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey, was named Most Innovative Small Showroom by KBIS in 2015, there was still a need for expansion.

With that expansion came the need for greater display space, and Peter’s business family (and actual family) began to look into a satellite showroom. That search led them to beautiful Mendham, New Jersey, a charming town along the famed Patriot’s Path of Revolutionary War lore.

The new Peter Salerno Inc. showroom (located at 5 West Main Street, Mendham, NJ) features multiple custom kitchen design solutions focusing on a blend of classic and contemporary transitional kitchen design. A rustic awning and opulent, original stained glass adorn the front window and invite you inside.

Once inside the Mendham showroom, Peter Salerno dazzles you with fresh white walls and tile resting atop custom kitchen cabinetry. This showcases the perfect blend of “new school” transitional kitchen design and “old world” custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry that is the hallmark of Peter Salerno Inc. custom kitchen design. Clients can also procure exclusive, unique pieces from the brand new EDGES custom cutlery collection.

From there, you are taken on a “mini” tour of the signature style that has made Peter Salerno Inc. the most award-winning kitchen and bath design firm in North America this century. The boutique showroom features a mix of classic and contemporary, traditional and transitional kitchen design. A large high-definition screen gives our clients a further look into the state-of-the-art Peter Salerno Inc. design portfolio.

The heart of Mendham was the perfect place for Peter Salerno Inc.’s satellite showroom, which balances a charming blend of high-end, world-class kitchen design with the charm of one of the most historic suburbs in New Jersey.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s 20 Years In Design: ‘Then and Now’ Showroom Photos

Peter Salerno Inc.’s Design Showrooms: Then and Now Photos

In our last two articles celebrating Peter Salerno Inc.‘s 20 years of award-winning custom kitchen, bath and home design, we’ve shown you photos from the very beginning of Peter Salerno’s design journey, as well as a look back at Peter Salerno Inc.’s 2006 Hurricane Katrina home construction to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

We thought it would be fun in this piece to show you the differences between “then and now” in terms of Peter Salerno Inc.’s Wyckoff, New Jersey showrooms. The original Peter Salerno Inc. showroom (opened in 1997) and the current showroom existed on adjacent lots, but they feel worlds apart.

The original Peter Salerno Inc. showroom, founded in 1997 on Goffle Road in Wyckoff, NJ, was a converted two-story home that became the foundation for the most award-winning custom design firm in North America in the 21st century. Above, you can see the humble beginnings of the Peter Salerno Inc. brand…

And below, you can see the design wonderland that is 511 Goffle Road, Wyckoff, New Jersey. Home to Peter Salerno Inc., Stratta the Tile Boutique, and Oberg & Lindqust Appliances, Peter Salerno Inc. is now a one-stop design destination for the discriminating home or business owner.

Peter Salerno is the son of Rosolino Salerno (“Maestro Rosolino”), an expert woodworker and cabinetry designer whose trade was honed in Sicily. From the beginning of his career, Peter took pride in plying his own skills after those of his father, and can be seen hand-carving a wooden eagle feature outside his original design showroom in 1997 (see below).

Today, Peter’s design expertise has led him to partner with some the world’s foremost brands in design, including Miele (whose transitional kitchen design feature was designed by Peter Salerno Inc. for his showroom, seen below), La Cornue, Rangecraft, Sub-Zero, Wolf, EDGES Custom Cutlery, Purcell-Murray and TopBrewer.

While the original Peter Salerno Inc. showroom had its charm, the current Peter Salerno Inc. design showroom at 511 Goffle Road in Wyckoff, New Jersey, is a destination for lovers of world-class design, and a winner of the KBIS Most Innovative Showroom award.

Take a look for yourself at one of the design vignettes in Peter’s original showroom (first picture below) in 1997, followed by the current, awe-inspiring La Cornue master kitchen design in today’s showroom.

We love these photos, as a testament to Peter Salerno’s growth as a designer – but also for their similarities in custom design, small unique touches, and master woodworking craftsmanship that have been hallmarks of Peter Salerno Inc. design since 1997.
