Also on hand to toast the brand’s new space was Ryan Saghian, Laura Eckstein Jones, Nazgol Seyedi, Micah Tipler, Kelly Ciulla, Laurie Anastos, Patricia Davis Brown, Michelle Doherty, Timothy Bullinger, Stephen Hualde, Jan Turcotte, Patricia Bryson, Megan Reilly and Julia Wong.

“The unveiling of our flagship Dacor Kitchen Theater is a momentous occasion for the Dacor brand,” said Warner. “Our company began in Southern California and our new home in Irvine is the ideal location to continue telling the story of our past, present and future. With this new space, our goal is to create a home for members of the trade community and homeowners to experience our innovative product offerings, while also serving as a place to educate our customers and designers.”
