LOUISVILLE, KY, January 31, 2023 – Monogram™ – the luxury appliance brand synonymous with impeccable craftsmanship and sophisticated design – announced the availability of the Monogram Designer Collection. Renowned interior designer and Monogram Creative Director Richard T. Anuszkiewicz created the collection in collaboration with the brand. Showcased in two aesthetics, Brass and Titanium, the collections offer tailored appliances that elevate the room through unique finishes and custom handles, ventilation hoods and refrigeration panels.
“We are thrilled to partner with Richard to offer a new level of customization combined with gorgeous aesthetics to our trade community and clientele,” said Julie Burns, executive director of Monogram. “Richard is an incredible talent and his creative direction has helped shape how we think about product design and development, particularly how we can offer customized features to personalize and elevate our clients’ kitchens.”
The Monogram Designer Collection is disrupting the luxury space with the debut of the industry’s first-ever custom 96 inch high refrigeration panels – the brand’s unparalleled panel that stretches floor to ceiling– and custom hoods and handles that allow consumers to personalize their appliances. Inspired by fine jewelry, Richard designed each piece to have tailored and refined style and proportions. Both collections feature striking finishes with hardware wrapped in sustainably sourced, Greenguard Gold Certified, durable leather. The Brass Collection presents a bold elegant aesthetic, based on the fundamentals of classical architecture, in gold and polished hues. The Titanium Collection presents a contemporary luxury aesthetic rooted in the art of reductionism, with sleek lines and dark-charcoal muted tones.
“When embarking on this collaboration, I wanted to design pieces that were thought provoking and inspirational, something unlike anything else currently in the market,” said Anuszkiewicz. “With the collection, we’re bringing something truly unique, as it pushes the boundaries of what people have come to expect of appliances.”
Monogram is also joining design forces with Kohler, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of kitchen and bath products, to unveil complementary finishes at KBIS. The collection will debut its collaboration with Kohler’s luxury brand, KALLISTA. The dark-charcoal muted tones and sleek lines of Monogram’s Titanium collections pairs with the cool undertones of KALLISTA’s Gunmetal finish, while the gold and polished hues of Monogram’s Brass collection complements the warmth of KALLISTA’s Unlaquered Brass finish.
Monogram is also partnering with the Keeler Brass Company, one of the most renowned hardware brands in the U.S., to produce the handles in its Designer Collection. The partnership embodies a shared dedication to quality craftsmanship and a long history in the luxury space.
The Monogram Designer Collection x Richard Anuszkiewicz starts at $1,400 and is available at select Monogram dealers. For more on this collection, visit monogram.com.
