LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 27, 2024This week at the 2024 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), CAFÉ announced a partnership with Isabel Ladd, a self-proclaimed maximalist designer. As part of her role as a CAFÉ Designer Ambassador, Ladd designed one of the kitchens in the CAFÉ booth, Daring Drama, to reflect her own personal style of meticulously layered patterns and colors. 

Daring Drama features stunning matte black CAFÉ appliances outfitted with brushed copper hardware. Deep hues of emerald and magenta ground the look against pops of yellow and earth-inspired patterns. The kitchen is brought to life with paint from Benjamin Moore, and Harlequin fabrics and wallpapers from the Sanderson Design Group. 

“The kitchen is central to our home's energy, bringing us together to fill the space with our stories after a long day,” said Ladd. “My kitchen is such a reflection of everything that brings me joy. I passionately believe that your home should reflect who you are, and what inspires me most about CAFÉ is that it absolutely lends to that self-expression. CAFÉ appliances bring forward that freedom to create a highly personalized and joy-filled space that goes beyond the expectations of a traditional kitchen.” 

Beyond her KBIS design, Ladd recently outfitted her personal kitchen with bold, personalized appliances from CAFÉ. To ensure her sophisticated and dramatic aesthetic was reflected, Ladd chose customizations like matte black finishes and brushed brass hardware for her appliances, a bold marigold color on the cabinetry and selected the eye-catching CAFÉ Capsule Collection Emerald Green Dual Fuel Commercial Style Range as her statement piece.  

“Isabel personifies the essence of CAFÉ with her vibrant taste in design that brings a fun, unique energy into a space,” said Erica Bovard, senior brand director for CAFÉ.Her creations emulate what’s possible when you dare to bring your unique sense of style into the kitchen. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Isabel to further inspire those looking to curate a spectacular kitchen that brings their personal aesthetic to life.”  

As part of her partnership, Ladd kicked off the first installment of the brand’s “Meet the Designer” series on CAFÉ social media channels and website earlier this month.
