Chicago — On May 17, Crate & Barrel opened a new culinary destination, CrateKitchen, to inspire cooking and entertaining for the modern kitchen and table. Located at the brand’s headquarters in Northbrook, Ill., CrateKitchen will open its doors to customers and a diverse range of influencers and chefs through virtual gatherings, styling sessions, product demos and a shoppable kitchen tour curated to support the ways people use their kitchens.
“The kitchen has become the center of our homes and CrateKitchen celebrates the versatility of how our customers use their space,” says Janet Hayes, CEO of Crate & Barrel Holdings. “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to take a virtual seat at our table to meet the people that stop by to cook, create recipes, make drinks and share ideas for setting the table and hosting gatherings.”
CrateKitchen sets an inviting atmosphere with the thoughtful design that customers know and love from Crate & Barrel and the warmth of a home kitchen. The sleek white quartz countertops are eco-friendly, with GREENGUARD and NSF certifications, waterfalling to the floor over natural wood panels and serving as a durable backsplash and accent wall. White oak cabinetry, finished with a natural matte seal to keep the inherently soft texture, surrounds the space along with matching wide plank oak floors.
