Dacor Kitchen Theater Opens in Chicago

The Chicago design scene turned out in celebration of the debut of a new Dacor Kitchen Theater, the second showroom for the American luxury home appliance brand. Located on the first floor of the historic Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago, the space operates as a full-scale performance center that directly serves the trade community while allowing homeowners to interact firsthand with the brand’s vast selection of collection offerings.

Over 150 guests attended the opening, including Scott Kim, Steve Lee, Etienne Houseknecht, Kris Feneque, Celeste Robbins, Micah Tipler, Jennifer Chick-Gray, Mike O’Keefe, Janessa and Stephen Gertz, Joann Nosek, Joan Pomaranc, Paul DeGrandis and Tylar Raines.

“Expanding Dacor’s national presence is an incredible milestone for the brand,” said Randy Warner, the company’s president. “The Chicago design scene has seen a revitalization that is in line with our brand growth and the Mart is the perfect place to highlight our new initiatives while celebrating our 50-year heritage. The Dacor Kitchen Theater is a true representation of our innovative product offering and a space that invites collaboration and education to the local design community.”
