Season 5 Episode 47 #192: Award Winning Kitchens with NKBA's Elle H Millard
The National Kitchen and Bath Association conducts one of the most comprehensive kitchen competitions I know of. Many designers I have spoken to are not even aware of the competition so I wanted to shed some light on the subject. Elle H Millard is a certified kitchen designer and Industry Relations Manager for the NKBA. She joined me for a conversation about the NKBA and the kitchen competition. I enjoyed my chat with Elle and I was reminded that designers and architects need only search for opportunities that allow them to showcase their work using the marketing power of other organizations. The NKBA provides a great opportunity to do that.
Before we get into this conversation with Elle, I want to thank you for listening and invite you to join in the conversation, you can find us @ConvoByDesign on twitter and @ConvoXDesign on Facebook and Instagram.

This is the NKBA’s Elle Millard.
Xander Noori and Keon Khajavi-Noori are Orange County, California’s dynamic duo of design. In addition to all the do here in Southern California, they travel the world attending design focused events. So, I wanted to know what they see in store for Winter 2019 and what to expect at some of their favorite events. They each have their professional lane in which they try to remain and there is a great deal of respect each has for the other and each compensates for the other, sometimes grudgingly so. This was a truly fun conversation and I think you will find it especially interesting to hear not just about the design, but their product development and the never-ending desire to travel abroad to the industry’s most storied design focused events.
