Enkeboll debuts new look for Spring 2011

CARSON, CA - As it unveils its new look this spring, Enkeboll Designs offers innovative and surprising new ways to use its magnificently carved solid-wood elements. For kitchen & bath designers, interior designers, architects, hospitality designers, furniture designers, cabinet makers and millwork professionals, Enkeboll's new look(s) extends well into virtually any design.

The industry-wide debut of the "New Look of Enkeboll" takes place April 26-28 at KBIS in Las Vegas, second stop HD Expo, May 18-20 also in Las Vegas. Los Angeles based interior and furniture designer David Dalton, ASID, creates the richly detailed, chic reinterpretation of a Federal-style 'drawing room' that launches Enkeboll's new look. The imposing façade of the booth is adorned with new molding designs, overscale hand carved lions-head medallions, massive doors showcasing exquisitely carved rosettes and ceiling medallions converted into outsized door pulls. Many of the moldings and components feature Enkeboll's luxe new line of metallic finishes.

"In designing the booth, I challenged myself to see just how many pieces I could use from the Enkeboll catalog and was thrilled to find so many new applications for these beautiful wood carvings. We turned stair parts into table legs, used architectural moldings to create chairs and found inventive ways to make columns and corbels into cabinetry," said David Dalton. "The booth is intended to showcase the versatility and flexibility of Enkeboll products. These components offer design professionals a creative way to add rich detailing in so many unexpected places all the while adding profit to their bottom-line."

Dalton custom designed furniture for the 'drawing room' interior which features Enkeboll moldings and rosettes. From elegant etageres to a sultry day bed, Dalton infused Enkeboll elements in ways that give these pieces of furniture new life and personality. They serve as an example of how design professionals can make every project and unexpected aspects of every project unique by simply incorporating different Enkeboll elements.

The booth's exterior, seen from the convention center aisles, sports hedge-lined stone walls. Enkeboll elements are mounted to the exterior walls in ways that will wow and welcome visitors who will feel like they are visiting an elegant country home in 18th century Virginia.

"We retained David to create the three-dimensional new look of Enkeboll, to bring it to life," said Mary Beck, senior vice president sales & marketing, Enkeboll Designs. "We expected his innate sense of style, highly creative approach and overall confidence to permeate every inch of the booth. That's exactly what he delivered, we can't wait to welcome the trade so they can experience our new look for themselves."
