LAS VEGAS, Jan. 21, 2020 — Signature Kitchen Suite, the fresh new brand that leads innovation in the luxury kitchen appliance market, has earned the coveted 2020 Chairman’s Award from the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA).
One of the association’s highest honors, the NKBA Chairman’s Award was created in 2009 (originally as the President’s Award) to recognize industry leaders for their unparalleled positive impact on the NKBA and the industry. According to NKBA, Signature Kitchen Suite is being recognized for its role in educating accomplished young professionals, designers, remodelers, builders and specifiers about the evolution of the business. This includes Signature Kitchen Suite’s strong support of the prestigious NKBA Thirty Under 30 program, mentoring future leaders in the kitchen and bath world. NKBA also acknowledges Signature Kitchen Suite’s game-changing technological innovations for their positive impact on the industry.
“NKBA is pleased to honor Signature Kitchen Suite and LG Electronics for their noteworthy contributions to our association and industry, especially for pushing the bounds of innovation,” said Steve Joseph, 2019 Chairman of the Board of Directors of NKBA. “The design and advanced technology of their new connected-home appliance line, the design and function of their award-winning Experience & Design Center, and their continual support of our programs — particularly Thirty Under 30 — that raise our association and industry to the highest levels make SKS deserving of this honor.”
At the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), the industry’s leading kitchen and bath trade show, NKBA also recognized the new Signature Kitchen Suite Experience & Design Center with the 2020 Innovative Showroom Award. The brand’s state-of-the-art brand immersion facility for VIP trade partners including home builders, designers and influencers, located in culinary-centric Napa Valley, Calif., was singled out in the Large Independent Retail Showroom category. This highly competitive industry distinction celebrates designer, retail and brand showrooms in the kitchen and bath space that create an engaging and unforgettable experience, while educating their customers in unique ways.
“Being honored by the industry authority is a testament to our dedication to delivering exceptional innovation to our customers,” said Thomas Yoon, President and CEO of LG Electronics North America, who accepted the NKBA Chairman’s Award on behalf of Signature Kitchen Suite and LG. “It is humbling that the newest brand in the luxury kitchen space is receiving such attention for driving innovation.”
