BLANCO welcomes Cupboards Kitchen and Bath designer Nick Lovelady to prestigious Design Council

Sylacauga, AL September, 2011 – BLANCO, German manufacturer of innovative and award-winning sinks and faucets, appoints talented kitchen and bath designer Nick Lovelady to the BLANCO Design Council. The panel of elite bloggers and residential designers serves as an industry design forum and influential resource for homeowners with makeover aspirations. Through their network of blogs, including BLANCO’s, the Design Council provides the latest updates in products news, support tools and inspirational ideas.

"We are very excited to welcome Nick Lovelady to the BLANCO Design Council,” states Christy Emens, marketing communications manager for BLANCO. “Nick will bring a great deal of value and insight to the Design Council on many levels given his depth of industry experience, knowledge and social media influence.”

Hailing from a family of well-known southern cabinet designers in central Alabama, Lovelady helps run the family owned business Cupboards Kitchen & Bath, a popular retail cabinetry company with high style and southern flair that has been around for years. Using a no-nonsense approach to design, the highly regarded designer has become an invaluable resource over the years to many of his clients, customers and friends. His passion for residential design can be attributed to constant involvement in his parents’ home projects while growing up in Alabama.

In addition, the progressive cabinet guru maintains a strong and loyal following for his blog The Cupboards Blog, which brings readers daily inspiration about kitchens, bathrooms and gives professional tips for homeowners remodeling their homes. When Lovelady is not helping to design cabinets, he enjoys tailgating on football Sundays and riding his Harley in his spare time.

The BLANCO Design Council is an elite group of professional design bloggers that offer valuable and in-depth insights into the world of kitchen and home renovation. For a complete profile of BLANCO Design Council members and their inspirational blogs, please visit

Proud of its European heritage and award-winning German engineering, BLANCO is steadfastly committed to their tradition of high quality, innovative design and unsurpassed service since 1925. Today, BLANCO is the only supplier in the world to produce its own sinks from start to finish in three materials. Dedicated to quality without compromise, every sink is closely inspected many times before it receives the BLANCO name.

A remarkable history of firsts emphasizes BLANCO’s zeal for innovation including the first stainless steel sink to achieve a 10mm radius –STEELART® – the first to market colored hard composite sinks – and BLANCO’s pioneering MicroEdge™ technology with its virtual flushmount edge.

BLANCO has a long tradition of environmental stewardship and their production facilities operate to strict DIN EN ISO 14001 environmental performance standards.

BLANCO is the brand of choice in the luxury sink and faucet category for its unparalleled quality and an inspirational breadth of design possibilities. From the precision craftsmanship and artistic creativity of its STEELART brand to the stunning durability of its ground breaking SILGRANIT® collection, BLANCO has proven that the sink is far more than a mere functional element in the kitchen.
