Editor's Note :

Farewell, readers! It has been a pleasure to edit and produce the NKBA Manhattan newsletter for the last two years. I trust that our platform has provided quality content to update and inform our community as kitchen & bath professionals. All best to you as 2019 closes and 2020 begins!

Happy New Year NKBA & FRIENDS!

It is my pleasure to announce two new officers on our council. Effective January 1st, Julie Schuster is now the Programs Chair and Charlotte Barnard the Communications Chair. They bring new skills, experience, and ideas to the group, and we look forward to a fantastic 2020!

To start our year of 2020VISION, we will be leaving Manhattan for the evening and viewing the TWA Hotel at JFK Airport, courtesy of our sponsor Gringer & Sons. Invitations for this special Friday night event have already arrived to your inbox! This historic preservation is quite a site to see, and we hope you can join us on the 17th.

Then it's on to on to KBIS! Vegas is always a good time, and we have several members participating in round tables and presentations. If you're making the trip, please reach out so we can include you in meet ups and sponsor tours. (Email Charlotte at charbarnard@yahoo.com.) It should be an epic show!

As we begin this new decade, I would like to thank the past for all the wisdom it has provided and embrace the future for all the promise it holds!
Let the Roaring Twenties begin!
Fisher & Paykel Introduces New Integrated Wine Column
Fisher & Paykel is set to release a new integrated wine column in Spring 2020, which offers the freedom to blend seamlessly with the surrounding kitchen space or contrast with stainless steel panels and handles. Equipped with four wine storage modes to create the best environment for any varietal, and two independent variable temperature zones, this column is designed to protect up to 91 bottles of your favorite vintages. With a quiet, low vibration compressor, full-extension, soft-close slides with white oak shelving, and other strategically chosen absorptive materials, Fisher & Paykel's new integrated wine column carefully maintains the flavor profile of every drop.
