Elmira Stove Works to Host the #KBTribeChat on Jan. 13!!

11 Jan

kbtc imageTo color or not to color? That is the question. It is an age-old query in the design industry that receives varied responses from consumers to designers to builders. Benjamin Moore recently declared “Simply White” as its Color of the Year for 2016 while Pantone provided a plethora of vivid tones for spring 2016 and announced pastel-toned Rose Quartz and Serenity as its Colors of the Year. It is no wonder the battle between color and neutrals is never ending. On January 13, 2016 at 2 p.m. EST, Elmira Stove Works will be hosting the KBTribeChat, a Twitter forum for kitchen and bath professionals held every Wednesday to discuss industry trends, news and events.  The questions provided below are designed to start a dialogue to determine where the kitchen industry stands currently, so we can predict, or perhaps just contemplate, where upcoming design trends may take us. Be sure you are following the Elmira Stove Works and KBTribeChat Twitter accounts and use the hashtag #KBTribeChat to participate. Enjoy!


Q1: What is your favorite kitchen color scheme? What color palette would you choose for your dream kitchen? #KBTribeChat

Q2:  Have you seen or noticed an impressive kitchen project recently? Tweet the photo & tag the designer / product manufacturers! #KBTribeChat

Q3: What was your favorite “wow” factor of a past kitchen project? A custom colored appliance? A bold accent to a neutral kitchen? Let us know! #KBTribeChat

Q4:  In your experience, what color, pattern and design rules are worth following when planning a kitchen? #KBTribeChat

Q5: Beyond color, how do you work shapes, curves and lines into a kitchen layout? Do you prefer linear or non-linear…or a mixture? #KBTribeChat

Q6:  In 5 years, do you see kitchen trends more color saturated or veering toward achromatic palettes with subtle color included? #KBTribeChat

If you will be attending KBIS 2016 next week, we would love to continue the conversation at Booth #N383 and show you our retro and antique kitchen appliances, including the new Northstar Model 1947 36-inch six-burner range.  Also, on Thursday, January 21 at 1 p.m., we will be hosting a giveaway drawing for the chance to win an Apple Watch!

We hope to see you there!


Elmira Stove Works Embraces the 2016 Pantone Colors of the Year

8 Dec

Every year Pantone predicts the future of design, fashion and home décor with its announcement of its bi-annual color report and annual Color of the Year. This year, the international color authority has done something new; it announced two Colors of the Year and we are ready for them! 

Elmira Stove Works Model 1950 - PhotoAs a leading manufacturer of premium, vintage-styled kitchen appliances, we have the ability for our retro-inspired products to be custom colored to match Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. Respectively, the nude pink and purple-blue hues were chosen to symbolize balance and tranquility.

Our Northstar collection is well-known for its curves and chrome representing “true-to-era” 1950s design characteristics. In order to parallel the new 2016 Colors of the Year, we use color-matching technology to provide corresponding shades to the sweet, sensible Rose Quartz and cool, subdued Serenity. According to the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eisenman, the two colors reveal the natural harmony between warm, intimate rose and delicate, paradisiacal blue.Elmira Stove Works Model 1956 - Photo

“These colors will bring subtle, calming energy to kitchen spaces, whether incorporated into larger appliances such as a range and refrigerator, or as an accent color in a microwave,” says our vice-president of sales and marketing, Tony Dowling. “The custom RAL colors of Light Pink (RAL 3015) and Brilliant Blue (RAL 5007) align with the Pantone colors and are complementary to one another, while also blending well with other, varied palettes.”

In addition to the colors tailored to match the Colors of the Year, the Northstar collection can be customized to suit the other eight hues selected for Pantone’s Spring 2016 Color Report, as well as more than 200 other custom color options.
