Latest joint design event with Tom Howley Kitchens

29 November 2019

How to design your dream kitchen in a bespoke orangery? Visitors to last Saturday’s joint design event at Tom Howley Kitchen’s Esher showroom, the latest collaboration working in partnership with David Salisbury, were treated to some expert advice from these market leaders in their respective fields.

An orangery kitchen extension continues to be one of our most popular design briefs and reviewing just how many of the same projects both David Salisbury and Tom Howley Kitchens have been involved in underlined the logic for this relationship.

Showroom the perfect space for this event

We formally teamed up with Tom Howley during the course of 2018, and held our first joint events at their Bristol and Chelsea showrooms in the second half of the year. We now recommend each other on projects all around the country.

Last weekend’s event in Esher pitched us into a prime sales area for both companies, so it was a great opportunity for our respective sales designer teams to work together to provide their expert design advice to attendees - who were treated to some delicious canapés and drinks in the showroom on a typically rainy November Saturday.

Tom Howley himself was there, presenting to potential customers with his usual brand of passion and enthusiasm. Karen Bell, David Salisbury’s Sales Director, was joined by our Senior Sales Executive Jacinta Duckering, along with leading sales designers David White and Eddie Spillane.

It was a pleasure to meet more of the Tom Howley team, with Odette Fortune, their Esher showroom manager, making us feel particularly welcome, along with sales designers Chelsea Tallentire, Signem Caouki and Paul Varndell.

By the end of the event, both companies had secured a good number of new customer opportunities – but, most importantly, those who attended were able to attain some expert advice on transforming their homes from designers from both David Salisbury and Tom Howley.

We are already in discussion about further joint events with Tom Howley, with their showrooms at Guildford and Tunbridge Wells next on the shortlist for consideration in 2020.

It was a most enjoyable event to photograph for David Salisbury Joinery and Tom Howley kitchens at the Esher showroom,High Street, Surrey. I approached the shoot as a documentary to show the two companies engaging with the customers. It was good to photograph the designers listening carefully to the customers enquiries.The setting was a great backdrop for a photographer as it helped to visually tell the story as to the subject everyone was talking about.The clean lines of the kitchens added to the visual story.I enjoyed photographing people who are passionate about what they do, as the camera never intrudes into their space.To add an interesting visual twist, in post production I colour graded the images to create a distinctive style.

It was great to see you at our recent event Nick. Always good to catch up with you but having your expert photography to capture the event itself made it all the more worthwhile. Looking forward to working with you on our next photoshoot. Best regards, Barney, Head of Marketing
