Miami Beach Flair in Tampa Bay - Park Avenue Designs | SWP Cabinetry

Our latest project is a remodeled kitchen and wine bar inside a fabulous contemporary Tampa home.  The owners wanted something playful, innovative, fun and yet functional for entertaining large groups, incorporating a variety of bold colors and rich textures.  Park Avenue Designs in Tampa, Florida were chosen to design and transform the space, with the help of our experienced team at SWP Custom Cabinetry.

The project, featured in 'Housetrends' Tampa Bay (Sept/Oct Issue 2014), incorporates white high-gloss European cabinetry on the walls, and birdseye Maple base cabinets that sit below a hurricane glass window backsplash, offering views of the beautiful garden beyond.

Zebra wood cabinets topped with an illuminated onyx waterfall countertop provide a real focal point of the kitchen.  The onyx topped cabinet also doubles as a backsplash for the sink and includes storage for glassware as well as a floating glass countertop - perfect for entertaining and serving hors d'oeuvres and drinks.  This acts as a room divider between the lower zebra wood and high-gloss wine bar and the adjoining living room.

Working with the team at Park Avenue Designs is always a wonderful experience...

Founded in 1993, PAD owned by George Gobes and Jeff Wallace, is Tampa Bay's leading kitchen and bath design center for elite luxury residences.  Recent expansion into the custom design-build market, designing everything from the shell inward has provided a niche in which PAD excels.  With over 20 years in business, they have established an incredible reputation for exceeding clients expectations and consistently creating spectacular spaces.

Owner George Gobes attributes the success of Park Avenue Designs to his grandfather, a passionate and highly skilled apprentice to a fine furniture maker in Vienna, Austria back in 1899, before moving to New York City.

"My grandfather's influence on my life has had an invaluable impact on my professional outlook and business principles.  Today we hold dear the values he lived by, and work from a perspective of how things were done in a time when quality and service were a way of life." 

George Gobes, Owner - Park Avenue Designs.

Be Inspired,

Gale and The Team at SWP.

Ultra-Luxe Contemporary Project - SWP Cabinetry

Custom high gloss hand buffed painted island and cabinetry | Rift sawn Cherry cabinetry and shelving with stained satin finish by SWP Cabinetry

Alas, summer has come to a close, because September 22 was officially the first day of fall!  We look forward to cooler temperatures, spectacular foliage and a busy fall season at the Superior Wood Products headquarters in Indiana.

This month's blog features a stunning contemporary project completed earlier this year.  The ultra-luxe waterfront Spanish River Road Residence in Boca Raton, is designed by Affiniti Architects and built by Mark Timothy, Inc Luxury Homes.

The award-winning Marc-Michaels luxury interior design team brought a minimalist and monochromatic design approach with a hint of Balinese style to the open plan living space, described by national publications as "...barefoot elegance with an organic feel".

The contemporary kitchen features custom cabinetry by SWP in both a high gloss hand buffed finish and rift cut cherry doors with a beautiful stained satin finish.  The kitchen, breakfast nook and loggia are all tied beautifully together using sophisticated modern furnishings.  The glass blacksplash and accents in turquoise, blues and orange are inspired by the sunset, creating a naturally elegant whole.

It's all in the details - rift sawn Cherry with stained satin finish over counter kitchen shelving

The tranquil master bathroom features natural lacquered custom bamboo vanities by SWP Cabinetry and suspended mirrors.

Enjoy the fall season,

Gale and The Team at SWP.
