KBDi Diamond Sponsors, Smeg, have been treating KBDi members to their renowned hospitality at a series of events over the last week.

Queensland Members enjoyed a fantastic evening at Smeg’s newly renovated Virginia showroom on 22 June. Guests enjoyed hearing the back story of the design-driven campaign behind the ‘Linear by Smeg’ collection, while tasting the fine fare prepared in the Smeg super kitchen! Members and Sponsors were happy to toast the Queensland finalists, too, with all but one being in the room.

Past winner Alysia Pekel shared her design inspiration with WA Members at Smeg’s Nedlands showroom on 27 June, before later lining up as a finalist in this year’s Awards program. She was joined by a couple of colleagues (well done, Western Cabinets), along with some new Perth designers and some well-loved Members. See the full list of WA Finalists here.

Victorian Members enjoyed a fantastic evening at Smeg’s impressive Collingwood Showroom on 29 June, where a long list of finalists were congratulated on their efforts. As the most enthusiastic chapter (based on the number of entries), they had plenty to party for. You’ll find the full list of finalists here.

A huge thanks to Smeg for their hospitality (once again), and big congrats to this year’s finalists.
