I headed to Las Vegas in July for AWFS; there are always new products to see and great ideas to bring home, and this year, I also got a chance to promote the Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) in my role as a board member.
All of that was great, but there was another very important highlight during my trip: Four first-place “Wood Diamond” awards from our peers at the CMA, which held its awards dinner during AWFS. These awards mean a lot to us because we know our fellow cabinet makers truly “get it” – they look at our work and understand the time and attention to detail we put into it.
CMA members who were not participating in the competition served as judges; this year, the awards recognized 34 winners from 17 member companies.
Here are the details on the awards and the projects that were recognized:
1st place ~ Kitchen: European (Under $25,000)
1st place ~ Bar, Residential: European ($25,000 - $50,000)
1st place ~ Fireplace Surround: European (Under $25,000)
1st place ~ Closet: European (Under $25,000)
Wildwood closet and mudroom
Without design-savvy clients, designers, architects and all of the other talented people we partner with on projects – and their collective commitment to quality – Dark Horse would not have award-worthy work, so we share this recognition with all of them. ~ Chris Dehmer and the Dark Horse team
