Delivering the Dream
By Bernard Otulakowski, Managing Director of SieMatic Kitchens
As someone who has a degree in Interior Design myself, I was delighted to be able to host a SBID breakfast meeting, and meet others whose business is also to ‘deliver a dream that the customer hasn’t seen yet’.
I’m enthusiastic about working with like-minded professionals to create the very best kitchens for our clients. Founded in 1929, it was SieMatic that created the world’s first handle-less kitchen in 1960 and we have been innovating and refining our kitchens ever since. It is our flexibility of design, quality and attention to detail that I believe make SieMatic the perfect partner for architects and interior designers creating their own kitchen concepts.
I also believe that, working in the luxury sector, we are all faced with challenges, but it is how we overcome these challenges that is the key. We believe in working with individuals who have the same vision to achieve the best, and that is why we have partnered with Nicholas Anthony to create our flagship London showroom on Wigmore Street, where the SBID breakfast was held.
As Tony Nicholas, managing director of Nicholas Anthony, explained at the breakfast, he has been working in this sector for 30 years (and his father 20 years before that) and offers a ‘best in class’ service. His large ‘Spirit of London’ designed showroom displays four kitchen concepts, along with a more private space that he would be happy for SBID members to use for meetings, if you simply contact the showroom to arrange (0207 935 0177)
SieMatic can provide high quality and flexible options for designers and there are many opportunities to work together. This view is echoed by Tony, who adds: “The SBID breakfast was very well supported, and attended by some excellent architects, designers and complementary businesses. One of its particular benefits, was that it gave us the opportunity to explain how, while we have our own designers in-house, we are very happy to work in support of interior designers and architects, using our expertise and high degree of flexibility in our kitchens to help them achieve their designs.”
We hope that SBID members will take the opportunity to visit the Nicholas Anthony showroom on Wigmore Street or one of SieMatic’s other showrooms around the country to explore how we could work together.
