Symphony evolves Gallery kitchen collection
Symphony is introducing a number of major new additions to its Gallery collection this season, with 16 stunning new kitchen frontals, units, accessories and fresh new finishes for 2012.
Marking Symphony’s intentions to make Gallery the most flexible kitchen range on the market today, the new additions are not only practical and environmentally friendly, but extremely stylish and affordable too.
The new Woodbury range (pictured above) is the first offering three on trend colour schemes, including Woodbury Gloss Anthracite, a sleek grey gloss door which is coordinated to best effect with the Woodbury White. The range is completed with the classic Woodbury Ivory gloss door.
The second new range is Plaza (pictured left), available in three earthy tones - Taupe, Stone and Mussell - fitting well with the market trend for new neutral colours.
Hacienda (below right) is the third brand new range with a new avola pine finish in Ivory or Champagne, complete with matching cabinet ends to create a co-ordinated look.
And finally embodying the latest trends, the all new Rockfort Shaker range (below left) is available in seven paint to order colours including Duck Egg Blue, Mussel and Olive, each available on a six week lead time, as well as offering classic Ivory which is available on a standard lead time. The Rockfort will be available at a middle price point and offers an alternative to the popular timber Austin painted range.
Leading the way on accessories, the innovative soft form blender panels in a black, white or ivory gloss finishes have been introduced and look set to be a top seller this year. There is also an extension of matching replacement cabinet ends in more gloss and matt finishes, to offer a beautiful coordinated look, as well as more options on drawer units and handles to create those all important finishing touches.
“The new range extensions combine top quality materials and superior design across the complete Gallery kitchen collection, delivering even greater choice to our retail partners,” explains Simon Collyns, Marketing Director. “By evolving our most popular product range we can respond to independent retailers better than ever before and deliver a real point of difference in terms of our competitors.
“We’ve combined traditional craftsmanship and bold design and blended it with sleek clean lines, modern curves and contemporary colourways, using the latest kitchen technology. New storage solutions and clever design features such as soft-close doors and drawers filter throughout the different ranges and bring with them the very best in form as well as function. We’re thrilled with the new additions and we’re confident our retailers will be too.”
Helen Claughton, Senior Product Development Manager at Symphony, adds:
“We’ve taken the latest influences from the European kitchen market and made them work for the UK. The trends towards more matt finishes and earthy tones for example have been replicated here to stunning effect. For a mainstream kitchen brand like Gallery to be leading the way in concept design like this is fantastic.”
The new additions come soon after the recent launch of Symphony’s New Perspectives support package, introduced to help KBB retailers attract more customers, win more orders and significantly increase their sales margins. Symphony’s independent retail base already consists of over 500 dealers selling its Gallery and Milano kitchen brands, Embrace bedroom brand and Aquadi bathroom brand.
