Stoneham retailer, Dobsons unveils impressive kitchen showroom
One of our retailers, Dobsons in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire opened its doors on 13 February for the official launch of its newly refurbished showroom. Having undergone a massive renovation, Dobsons was proud to show-off seven extensive Stoneham displays, showcasing the exemplary quality and craftsmanship that we are renowned for.
A fourth-generation family business, owners Matthew Rowlandson and Helen Dobson first introduced Stoneham kitchens over ten years ago to offer the benefits of bespoke kitchen manufacturing to its customers. Wanting to show the versatility and uniqueness of Stoneham, in 2018 the pair decided to say goodbye to its fourteen-display showroom and replace the busy layout with elegant, inspiring displays that would hit the right note with customers.
“We realised that the kitchens we were designing were not truly represented in our showroom,” explains Rowlandson. He continues, “our small displays just didn’t do us justice, so last year we made the decision to completely transform the space and show what we really can do. It took about five months, with every detail carefully brought to life – we were even open during that time which was somewhat chaotic, but it was well worth the effort to get our showroom up to date.”
Each of the seven striking displays combine a variety of Stoneham’s collections, including Diffuse and Fusion smooth contemporary cupboards and Penshurst and Edwardian traditional furniture in popular colours and wood finishes. Dressed with the latest appliances and unique touches, including; retro colander pendant lamps, an impressive LED lighting system which can be instantly controlled from an iPad and an illuminated crackle glass table with wine cooler, the showroom now offers a wide scope of kitchen design possibilities and styles to suit many tastes.
Admired by guests at the launch, the team at Dobsons spoke passionately about their designs and put on a memorable event, complete with wine and cheese tasting, delicious dishes prepared by representatives from cooktop extractor manufacturer Bora and even a cycling bike that guests got to race on during the night, supplied by Bora and Hansgrohe. To top it off the evening was made even more magical with the presence of a magician!
Amongst the attendees were a number of our management team including our Managing Director, Adrian Stoneham. “We have worked with Dobsons for a long time, so it was great to be part of the launch night and see the showroom come to fruition,” states Stoneham. “There isn’t a kitchen showroom quite like it in the area so Dobsons will really be able to stand out and offer something different.”
