GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Klise has created new custom lineal wood and wire mesh products, which are closely based upon designs originally envisioned, drawn and submitted by Kendall College of Art & Design students, in the second annual Klise sponsored KCAD student design competition.

These new custom products include a Neoclassical style custom formed wire mesh grille pattern (#605), and a custom carved lineal wood chair rail/accent moulding (#D2961) inspired by the Hollywood Regency design style.

Phil Tomasello, National Sales Manager comments on the competition, “The creative designs submitted by these Interior and Furniture Design students were truly inspirational; the competition was a great success for everyone involved and I’m grateful for the strong partnership Klise has with KCAD.”

According to Tomasello, “A custom Neoclassical style wire mesh grille will offer interior designers greater options for adding formal sensibility and sophistication to cabinetry in a room, while a Hollywood Regency style chair rail or accent moulding will help create a fun, whimsical charm within any interior space.” Tomasello adds, “I’m confident that both of these custom designs can provide creative inspiration to help transform the interiors of homes, hotels and restaurants.”

Klise custom formed wire grilles are hand-made and can be scaled to various sizes, with multiple options for grille pattern/shape, wire size, rosette type and color finish, based upon the clients needs. The vast library of Klise custom wood mouldings offers a wide variety of design styles in numerous dimensional sizes and profiles.
