Word on the Street, Summer 2012June, 2012
A Design Studio opens, four more Cambria patterns debut, a color-matching partnership begins, and Cambria’s brand ambassadors grace the stage and screen.
IN JANUARY, CAMBRIA OPENED ITS LATEST STYLE AND DESIGN STUDIO in Toronto’s chic King Street East district. Built under the direction of local architect Ramsin Khachi, this new Cambria Studio includes a number of showcase vignettes from other Canadian designers as well as artwork inspired by Cambria quartz surfaces and ample workspace for events and design planning. “Every design detail was considered to create a consistent ‘Cambria Style’, first class experience at every touch point,” says Summer Kath, Director of Brand for Cambria. “We are confident the Studio will serve our partners and consumers in a meaningful way and will impress, inspire and generate devoted advocates of our brand.”
NOW, FINDING JUST THE RIGHT SHADE OF PAINT TO COMPLEMENT CAMBRIA DESIGNS HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER. Thanks to the color experts at Benjamin Moore, each Cambria pattern will now be matched up with four corresponding paint hues, taking the guesswork out of a sometimes difficult design decision.
FOR THE HGTV’S 2012 DREAM HOME CONTEST, the network chose to install multiple Cambria quartz surfaces throughout its new house in Park City, Utah. For the $2-million home’s compact, yet hardworking kitchen, the HGTV experts chose Cambria’s Dover™ and Cuddington™ designs to outfit both the island and surrounding countertops.
CAMBRIA ADVOCATE CHERYL TIEGS RECENTLY RETURNED TO TV as a member of the 2012 cast of NBC’s hit show “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Always true to her character, Cheryl’s early departure from the show was a result of her unwavering moral compass. Confronted in the boardroom at the end of the season’s first episode, Cheryl acknowledged to Donald Trump that the show was not a good fit for her. Her dignified parting lit up social media channels, reignited conversations about what it means to show respect and class, and rekindled America’s love for its first supermodel. Before she left, Cheryl noted, “I know I am an intelligent person, however, to be on the show, there is certain toughness needed, and I don’t ever want to have that.”
