An excerpt from the article, “The Face of The Ultimate Kitchen”:

Following in the footsteps of his father, Peter [Salerno] developed a profound interest in the craft, becoming an elite Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer (CMKBD). Together with his wife, Tracy, and their children, Anthony and Gabrielle, this third generation family venture is recognized as one of the top design firms in the country and is the recipient of 35 national accolades.

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms of a home. Peter Salerno and Peter Salerno Inc. are the leaders in kitchen design because all of its designers are required to learn to cook or bake on a serious level. Peter and his son Anthony both take numerous classes at the Culinary Institute of America each year.

It’s not just focusing on the big picture, the little details matter just as much. To fill in these gaps that most other companies have, the company carries a premium selection of hardware and faucets with which to accessorize your kitchen. Peter’s daughter, Gabrielle, can help you pick out all your hardware needs.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s flagship showroom and offices are located at 511 Goffle Road, Wyckoff, New Jersey – in the heart of Bergen County, new Jersey. Its new satellite showroom is located at 5 West Main Street, Mendham, New Jersey.

Peter Salerno was recently interviewed by East Coast Home + Design Magazine, one of the premier home design publications in the United States. Fresh off another successful, informative trip to the KBIS 2016 conference, Peter took some time to speak with Cristine Benton of East Coast Home + Design about his experience, his award-winning pedigree, and his design expertise and influences.

The interview, part of an expansive must-read article entitle “KBIS 2016”, was a great opportunity for Peter Salerno to speak about his time at North America’s best design conference.

An excerpt from the article (credit to Cristine Benton, the author):

“Peter Salerno, the owner of Peter Salerno Inc., a kitchen design firm with showrooms in Wyckoff and Mendham, N.J.: Peter’s company has received 34 national design awards since 2002, including Kitchen of the Year in 2012 and the Most Innovative Showroom in 2015. His business experience and industry knowledge, combined with his passion for art and architecture, have made him one of the most sought-after designers in the industry.”

Other outstanding, notable designers and industry professionals interviewed for this article include Chuck Wheelock and Rebecca Reynolds.

Readers of Ms. Benton’s piece in East Coast Home + Design are treated to an inside look at aspects of the KBIS 2016 conference not seen by the public (and even most of the attendees), including the exclusive La Cornue party at the Bellagio and the prestigious NKBA Design Competition and Industry Awards at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Ms. Benton also notes some design trends omnipresent at KBIS 2016, including “a universal embrace of the contemporary” (over traditional kitchen design), natural stone replicas, and the regional diversification of kitchen color palettes. For example, current homeowners in the Northeast United States looking for transitional kitchen updates prefer white kitchen designs.

In all, Cristine Benton presents a comprehensive, clean review of KBIS 2016 (not an easy task given its scope), and provides a must-read piece for kitchen designers and design enthusiasts alike. Be sure to look for this article, which includes contributions by Peter Salerno, in the March 2016 issue of East Coast Home + Design Magazine.
