Silestone introduces the second annual Silestone Design Contest, an exciting program recognizing independent
designers on the forefront of creative and inspiring kitchen design. From bold back splashes to innovative islands,
Silestone is seeking designers who celebrate the influence of color and push the envelope of design possibilities in the
foremost room of the home. A panel of high-profile design experts will judge and select three winning projects that
feature Silestone natural quartz in a kitchen that not only reflects dynamic design, but also showcases a true passion for
color. The grand-prize winner will receive an all-expense-paid, six-day trip to Spain and $1,500.
The Silestone Design Contest begins August 6 and is open to all independent designers who completed kitchen projects
using Silestone natural quartz from August 2012 to September 2013. The call for entries ends November 15, 2013 and
the winners will be announced on December 3, 2013.
The Silestone Design Competition judging panel is comprised of the Silestone Trendspotters, leading designers who are
renowned for inventive and colorful design. They are; Julia Buckingham Edelmann who runs the full-service interior
design firm Buckingham Interiors + Design, Abbe Fenimore, named one of Dallas’ Best Interior Designers in 2012 and
2013, and the ultra-hip designer behind Studio Ten 25, and award-winning interior designer and multi-media consultant,
Kerrie Kelly, founder of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab.
