On Wednesday, July 8th, we held a celebratory barbecue to recognize the three recipients of this year’s Crown Point Cabinetry Scholarship!  This annual scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00 was established by the employee funded Crown Point Charity Committee.  It is awarded to children of current Crown Point employees that have recently graduated from high school and are going on to higher education.

The recipients were invited to the shop to enjoy lunch and a presentation of the awards in front of their families and the entire Crown Point crew.

In addition to finishes by Farrow & Ball and the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, Crown Point Cabinetry is pleased to offer our very own collection curated from the Sherwin Williams color palette!

“The beauty of our Sherwin Williams color palette,” explains Rick Deschaine, Crown Point Cabinetry’s Plant Engineer and finishing expert, “is that homeowners will now be able to head to their local Sherwin Williams store to pick up an interior paint in the same or coordinating color for a cohesive look throughout.”

This commercial grade, water-based paint is sprayed on for an incredibly durable, beautiful finish.  We offer 75 colors within the special Crown Point palette, all hand-picked by our color experts to offer a full range of options.  However, if you find that you can not find the exact shade you want within this collection, any Sherwin Williams color can be achieved by request.  Just imagine the possibilities-happy color matching!

Crown Pointers Catching Some Air

February 24th, 2015

With the chilly temps and the seemingly endless snowstorms New England has been getting hammered with, it’s easy to get caught up in bemoaning Old Man Winter. Unless you’re these guys-Crown Point Designers Joshua Doonan and Albon Powell often snowshoe on their lunch breaks. Here, they’re jumping off the huge snowbanks in the Crown Point parking lot into fresh powder. Cool.

Super Bowl Sunday was particularly cold this year, but that didn’t deter the more than 150 runners and walkers who came out for the 4th Annual Crown Point Pigskin 5k!  Proceeds from the race will go to a fund that subsidizes local children’s participation in sports programs through the Claremont Parks and Recreation Department.

New this year, each bib contained a microchip that was tracked by Millennium Running timing service.  A full list of results may be found here.

We are proud to announce that a Crown Point Kitchen Designer has won the Excellence in Kitchen Design Award from New Hampshire Home Magazine for the second year in a row!   Peter Ippedico accepted the Award last Tuesday evening at the annual reception in Manchester.

Peter Ippedico designed this custom kitchen with special touches like multiple cabinetry finishes and island legs crafted from reclaimed wood.

You may recognize the winning kitchen as it was featured on the blog last fall, and also within the pages of NH Home Magazine’s September/October Kitchens issue.

Open and inviting, this custom kitchen features cabinetry in two different painted finishes and a large island perfect for gathering the family together.  The island legs were reclaimed from beams in an old barn that was taken down on the property for a unique addition to the personalized space.

The 4th Annual Crown Point Christmas Video is Here!

December 18th, 2014

It has become an annual tradition to shoot a Christmas video here at Crown Point Cabinetry.  Starting in 2011, our crew has gotten in the holiday spirit with silly songs and funny hats and much more.  Our biggest hit yet was last year’s surprise Flash Mob.  (If you haven’t seen it, you’ll want to check it out!)

Today, we’d like to share our 4th Annual Crown Point Cabinetry Christmas video!

And because we love to laugh, here is a reel of behind-the-scenes footage as our teams chose their props and posed for the camera.

Happy Holidays to you and yours from all of us here at Crown Point Cabinetry!

 

Beautiful Crown Point Kitchen Decorated For Holiday House Tour!

December 16th, 2014

This custom kitchen was decorated for the holidays as part of the Concord Museum Holiday House Tour.  Custom inset Crown Point cabinetry is finished in Pointing by Farrow & Ball.

Crown Point Cabinetry was honored to be a sponsor of the 4th Annual Concord Museum Holiday House Tour this year.  On December 9th, seven homes in Concord, MA opened their doors to reveal beautifully decorated interiors for the holiday season!  Despite the cold temps and pouring rain, the tour had a fantastic turnout and attendees enjoyed complimentary treats and plenty of holiday decorating inspiration!

A Crown Point kitchen, designed by Crown Point Designer Nina Archambault, was a featured room on the tour.   Nina made the trip down and today we’re sharing some of her snapshots from the day!

Windows above the base cabinetry and a pair of full height glass doors help fill the kitchen with natural light.

Proceeds from this annual event provide vital support for the museum’s educational initiatives. They offer hands-on programs reaching over 10,000 school children in New England each year.
