The GE Monogram Experience

The GE Monogram Experience – Louisville, Kentucky

 

Have you heard of the GE Monogram Experience? This past July 2014, I had the opportunity to be the guest of GE Monogram located in Louisville, Kentucky for a four-day intensive educational, hands-on and social extravaganza event. Approximately 15 Interior Designers and top appliance distributors from around the country were invited to learn about the BRAND of General Electric, GE Appliances and specifically Monogram.

But first….

A visit to Louisville, wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Churchill Downs!

GE Monogram treated us to a private tour of Churchill Downs Museum and Race Track before heading back to the classroom!

It was quite amazing being at Churchill Downs when it is empty in the grandstands. We were able to watch some horses training on the track up close and that was great fun.

This display in the Derby Museum featured a history of the Silks.

Friends at the GE Monogram Experience donned Hats at the Derby Museum store.

The Churchill Downs Theater is shaped to simulate a race track and has a 360〫screen to view clips of past races and interviews with the jockeys and more. I highly recommend this if you are in the Louisville KY area.

Just like a Thoroughbred, the GE Monogram experience was all class!

why choose monogrram

Another quote from the GE Monogram site explains why Monogram is an excellent choice for the consumer when searching for a professional kitchen appliance.

In the links provided for the various GE Brand appliances, I encourage you to view them to learn more about what makes GE Monogram different from other Brands in the marketplace. “Craftsmanship is the Hallmark of the Monogram collection.”* From dishwashers, refrigeration to cooking on high-end appliances, the group was educated with what makes GE Monogram a superior product in many ways in a very competitive and often confusing field for consumers. “Savor the possibilities” ~ GE Monogram.

A Hotel stay at the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville would not be complete without hanging with those pesky Penguins, a BRAND identifier who were kind enough to pose with us.

I know, it looks like we were just about having fun at the GE Experience but we learned quite a bit, got to show off our culinary acumen and even though my team did not win the Iron Chef cook-off, we had a great time! Thank you Monogram!

Thanks for stopping by, I hoped you clicked a link or two and discovered what sets the GE Brand apart and learned about some of the features of their quality products.

Patti’s Picks- High Point Market

Patti’s Picks – High Point Market

Two weeks ago I left for High Point Market in High Point, North Carolina and am sharing with you “Patti’s Picks”.  I love going to High Point Market. I think (and many would agree) that I could stay for weeks each year and never see it all.  Visitors see all the latest in residential design for all tastes imaginable from old world, traditional, transitional, eclectic, modern to contemporary. In addition to the feast for the eyes are the many educational events and seminars and social networking gatherings, all of which are crammed into a few days.

High Point Market is a wonderful place for those in the Home Furnishings and Design Industry to visit to see the latest in Trends for the Home.  They even have their own Pinterest Account! High Point has an official “team” of  expert Style Spotter’s comprised of 9 high profile designers. They each have the daunting task of selecting or “spotting” 25 of their favorite styles. Wow, that certainly can’t be easy. While I agree with their findings, I also have my favorites.  Caroline Furs is one of the official Patti’s Picks and true Luxury!

Caroline PM

This is Carol. I met the lovely Carol on the shuttle to market from my hotel one morning and we were able to chat for almost an hour, I was so intrigued that I promised her I would stop by to see her products and take photos for my blog post!

“Led by chief designer Carol Grant Sullivan, CAROLINE offers a collection of glamorous, bold, distinctive looks. Whether it’s a night out on the town, a brisk walk in the countryside or entertaining at home, CAROLINE produces fur designs aimed to make women look their very best.

The designer grew up in the Canadian North- part of a large, pioneering family in business. Home was not far from an early Hudson’s Bay Fur Trading Post. Childhood winters were spent skating and skiing in the outdoors where Carol was surrounded by 3 generations of stylish women wearing fur. You might say fur is in her DNA. Now residing in Aspen during winter months, Carol’s passion for outdoor sports, the chic mountain lifestyle together with her love of fashion and fur has become an integral part of her design work. click here for inquiries or email info@carolinefurs.com.”
