“Kitchen of the Year” to be Designed by Jeff Lewis

April 08, 2010

House Beautiful’s “Kitchen of the Year,” a showcase of kitchen design, cooking and entertaining, will make its way to Rockefeller Center in New York City this July in partnership with Jeff Lewis of Bravo’s series Flipping Out. Lewis has taken on the challenge of designing this year’s 1,000-sq.-ft. space.  
“Our Kitchen of the Year represents the best of American design and decor,” said Kate Kelly Smith, VP and publisher of House Beautiful. “Each year, we strive to create a space in Rockefeller Center that’s inspiring and livable, and we’re thrilled to have Jeff Lewis on board to help us realize that goal.”

Enclosed in a glass conservatory on Rockefeller Plaza where the Christmas tree sits each holiday season, the Kitchen of the Year gives visitors the opportunity to experience, in person, a new vision of the American kitchen. Previous kitchens have celebrated the styles of Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) and kitchen designer Christopher Peacock.   

Stephen Drucker, editor-in-chief of House Beautiful, said, “What’s always struck me is that Jeff Lewis is a really good designer. And as a house flipper, he knows what people really want. He’s going to teach us all a lot about enhancing the value of a house with this kitchen.”
“Having designed and constructed my own projects and clients’ homes for the past 20 years, I am looking forward to bringing my contemporary take on today’s kitchen to Rockefeller Center,” said Jeff Lewis.  “Being presented with this rare opportunity reinforces my belief that success comes from hard work—or dating the right people.”

The 2010 Kitchen of the Year will feature products and components from its sponsors, including CaesarStone countertops, Jenn-Air appliances, Kohler sinks and faucets, KraftMaid cabinetry, Mohawk flooring, Nature’s Pride breads, Restoration Hardware outdoor furniture and Sunbrella fabrics.
