The Kennebec Company, Maine artisan craftsmen and designers of period-inspired cabinetry, introduced its latest Signature Kennebec design at the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbor Show in Rockland on Aug. 13-15.

The newest Signature Kennebec design — the International Style — blends the new with the old, a new tradition with a contemporary flair. The Kennebec Company first launched the International Style cabinetry on the worldwide stages of the Architectural Digest Show in Manhattan and the Kitchen, Bed and Bath Show in Birmingham, England.

Dave Leonard, owner and founder of The Kennebec Company, said, “It was time to complete the circle by adding a contemporary period style, and we chose New York City and Birmingham, England to introduce it. Now we are unveiling it in our home state of Maine.”

According to Leonard, the International Style was inspired by the discipline of the Shaker movement, where form always followed function. Sleek in style, contemporary in appearance, it also gives environmental sustainability a whole new meaning.

The sustainability of The Kennebec Company cabinetry is inherent in the cabinetry, which is built to last for generations, both through construction techniques and design. Today the company is proud to better help protect the environment by offering “green technology” water-based finishes, low-odor, zero VOC latex paints, lumber harvested using sustainable practices and plywood using no-added-formaldehyde resins.

Testimonial from a satisfied customer said it all: “I am sitting here in my lovely kitchen thinking how lucky Frank and I were to find you folks,” said Mary C. of East Kingston, N.H. “Our new cabinets are works of art. Plus everything is so well planned that it works like a dream. The kitchen is now a joy to work in.”
