On the evening of September 12th, two of our designers were invited to the spectacular Kbsa Designer Awards after being nominated for two awards: Best Bathroom and Kitchen Designer of the Year (Over 40K). Adelise Morgan-Scully was nominated for the Best Bathroom category; her exceptional white-on-white bathroom design earned her recognition as a finalist and a place in the top three. Niko Rasides with his edgy and contemporary kitchen design won his category overall and was declared Kitchen Designer of the Year.
We at Nicholas Anthony are immensely proud of the results of the night. The Kbsa Designer Awards is one of the most highly regarded awards in the industry with firm emphasis on awarding design excellence and the best in class. With the Kbsa celebrating their 40 years, the awards ceremony on September 12th located in the Stratford Manor Hotel, was one of the grandest yet and for Nicholas Anthony to be recognized as a nominee and winner is a truly outstanding achievement.
