MILLERSBURG, Ohio -- PBS's This Old House recently renovated the second oldest house in the program's 35-year history with a little help in the kitchen from Mullet Cabinet. Featured in episode 13 in what the PBS program has dubbed The "Bedford Project," work on the nearly 300-year old house included careful restoration and a few practical additions, including a new kitchen and butler's pantry featuring Mullet Cabinets' Levant™ Kitchen Furniture.
The initial episode featuring Mullet Cabinet's Levant Kitchen Furniture is scheduled to air on PBS on December 31st, 2011. "The Bedford Project" includes renovation and restoration of the home of Revolutionary War patriot, Nathaniel Page, located in a suburb of Boston. Special to This Old House, kitchen designer Kathy Marshall shows host Kevin O'Connor the unique challenges of fitting a modern kitchen into the blueprint of a 18th century farmhouse. One resourceful solution includes custom-designed Levant™ Kitchen Furniture with specialized color finishes designed to match the homeowners' taste in decor, complementing the style and era of the historic farmhouse. Additionally, Levant Kitchen Furniture delivered these cabinets in just 4 weeks, allowing the homeowners and show producers to meet a very tight construction and filming schedule.
"Levant made sense because I wanted to integrate the look of fine furniture-quality cabinetry that would offer the flexibility to work within the open floor plan that included posts and beams," Marshall explained. "And Levant delivered the look the homeowners had hoped for, well within the budget they had set aside. But what really made the company stand apart from the competition is that they were able to deliver a custom product under what would typically be regarded an unrealistic timeframe; when the deadline for the entire project was cut back from 9 months to 6 months."
Noted for its premier quality and expert craftsmanship, Levant™ is a step above typical kitchen cabinetry, in that all woodwork is completely finished – including all cabinet interiors. Mullet Cabinet also has an in-house color studio, allowing for industry-leading turnaround times. For the "Bedford Project," Marshall specified custom-designed inset perimeter cabinetry in a Blue Heron finish and the island in Coastal Fog to complete this historic renovation-quality showcase kitchen.
