Cabinet firm R.D. Henry unveils rebranding strategy

Formerly known as Custom Cupboards, R.D. Henry & Co. unveiled a new logo as part of an overall rebranding strategy designed to reflect its future goals as well as its 35-year history in the kitchen and bath cabinetry manufacturing industry.

Cabinetry in newly built home interior matches National Register district style

Designed & Made was proud to be a part of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Luxury Home Tour. The home located at 700 Osceola offers custom cabintery, a custom entertainment center, butler’s pantry, master bathroom vanity and bar.
The Old World feel of the cobblestone street out front matches this Tudor-style home, reminiscent of a charming fairytale cottage.
Located in St. Paul’s historic Crocus Hills neighborhood, the home fits in with the character of other homes on the street, designated a national historic district. There’s a strong sense of community here, and builder Detail Design + Build and designer Charlie Simmons of Charlie and Co. were sensitive to neighborhood concerns about history and aesthetics.
Historic details can be seen in the steeply pitched cross gable, stucco exterior, archway to the front door, and stacked brick wall landscaping, and inside, in the coffered ceiling, butler’s pantry, hooded hearth, hand-painted tiles, built-in cabinetry, and back covered porch, complete with hanging lanterns.
The 5,000-square-foot home has contemporary details, too, with art niches, a powder room with an art glass feature wall, a private balcony with southern exposure off the master suite, a four-story stair tower with cascading light fixtures adding drama and natural light, bedrooms connected with a Jack-and- Jill bath, a beautiful master suite, and a separate driveway path to the mudroom entrance. There are a few tech surprises in the home as well, with technology hidden in unexpected places—like the cabinet doors that open and close automatically with a soft push.
