COSENTINO OPENS WASHINGTON, D.C. CENTER
May 22, 2012
Cosentino Ribbon Cutting D.C. Showroom Grand Opening Attendees
Last week, Cosentino, the global leader in natural stone, quartz, and recycled surfacing, opened its eighth North American Cosentino Center in the Washington, D.C. area. More than 320 building and design industry leaders and top Cosentino executives attended the grand opening reception. The new Washington, D.C.- area center, designed by Isabel Martinez-Cosentino, aims to enhance both the trade and consumer experience and continues Cosentino’s mission to expand its presence in the U.S. market over the next year.
The May 17 program included remarks from Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America, and Otis Mehlberg, General Manager for the Washington, D.C.-area Cosentino Center. A flamenco performance entertained attendees, while others participated in an interactive game, where they visited five stops throughout the facility to learn about Cosentino’s vast product offerings and earn a prize.
Now, all visitors to the Washington, D.C.-area center will be able to explore and engage in the kitchen and bath experience — from material and color selection to specification and fabrication. The Cosentino Center showcases the full portfolio of Cosentino brands, including: Silestone Natural Quartz; ECO by Cosentino recycled surfaces; SenSa® Granite; Scalea Natural Stone; Marlique™ Marble; MURO™ Mosaics; and the Prexury™ Collection, a semi-precious stone line handmade by expert craftsmen.
The Cosentino Center is more than a showroom and distribution center. It’s designed to support, promote, and educate trade professionals by integrating distribution facilities, exhibition areas, and workspaces for designers to bring clients, classrooms for continuing education and fully functioning kitchens and event space for demonstrations. The centers create a unique interactive environment for architects, designers, distributors and fabricators to view the latest products and design trends, attend educational workshops, hear from visiting expert speakers and receive training on new product innovations and installation techniques.
