Geelong’s Independent Cabinet Makers (ICM Geelong) welcomed over 100 guests to its annual trade night in the Moorabool Street store of E&S Trading.
Guests were treated to drinks and canapes as they enjoyed a special presentation when E&S’s Rob Sinclair interviewed ASKO Ambassador, interior designer and television personality Shaynna Blaze.
Shaynna, who stars on the The Block and Selling Houses Australia, won plenty of new fans when she revealed she was a Geelong Cats supporter.
“I’ve barracked for Geelong since I was two years old … it’s a love, I’ve got to say”, she said to applause.
Shaynna gave numerous insights into latest design trends, such as the move back to positioning ovens at eye level and “hiding“ appliances behind clever cabinetry.
She also had plenty to say about finishes.
“Gun metal, polished chrome and stainless steel are coming back,” she advised.
“We’re also seeing a real contrast of black matte and gloss at the moment.”
For practicality, suppliers such as Laminex now offer a black ultra-matte surface that does not show finger prints.
ICM Geelong hailed the evening as a great success while praising the participants including host E & S Trading.
