Timberlake Brings The New American Home to Life

New American Home Party Goers

Guests enjoy themselves at the Timberlake Cabinetry party at the 2012 New American Home in Winter Park, Florida during the International Builders’ Show on Wednesday, February 8th, 2012.

Once a year, 50,000 members of the builder community come together at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) to see the newest homebuilding trends. This year, in Orlando, we were once again showcased in The New American Home, a house built from the ground up just for the show attendees.

So much more than a booth filled with samples, the show home lets visitors experience our cabinetry in a spectacular custom-built home that demonstrates innovative ways to design, personalize and add value in any home on any budget.

A few highlights from this year’s home included:

  • An art gallery with $1.2 million in artwork
  • A beautiful outdoor space of decks and a pool
  • A 30-foot paneled wall created entirely of cabinet doors
  • Twelve rooms of Timberlake cabinetry

It’s always best to experience the home in person, but for those who can’t, we’ve got more on the home, including a photo gallery, on our 2012 New American Home project page.

Best Mix of Work-Play at IBS

Considered one of the hottest tickets at the Builders’ Show, our invite-only VIP party at The New American Home is a chance for top builders, designers, architects and industry executives to experience the show home as it was intended—all lit up and set to entertain.

Under starry skies in nearby Winter Park, some 150+ guests made their way room to room while cool jazz, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres set a mood that kept people engaged.

How engaged? When a caterer’s truck experienced a small fire, the majority of guests simply moved the party to the front lawn and eagerly returned when all was clear.

Party Photos

There were candid party photos

And photo booth photos

And *cough* fire (!) photos *cough* …

Video Interviews

We also did video interviews with guests at the party, so check back occasionally so you don’t miss them!

It’s Never Over

The Builders’ Show may be over, but we keep The New American Home open for all-comers, all year long — with Portfolio Magazine. A week-long photo shoot and interviews with a dozen project decision makers is transformed into 44 printed pages of photos and stories that continue to inform and inspire the trade and homebuyers.

From profiles of the design and build teams to features on the home and cabinetry features, it’s a publication that will be read and re-read. Make a virtual visit yourself or request a printed version from your sales rep!

The New American Home 2012 features Timberlake Cabinetry

New American Home 2012 Kitchen

The New American Home 2012 kitchen features Timberlake Lausanne Maple Espresso cabinetry.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, brings custom-look style and personalized functionality to The New American Home (TNAH), the annual showcase house of National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). TNAH is presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, FL, February 8-11, 2012. The home is open to builders, remodelers, architects and designers as a way to discover new design trends, products and construction technology.

Twelve rooms of the 4,181 square-foot home feature Timberlake Cabinetry. The updated “White Box” architecture, reminiscent of the Sarasota School’s philosophy of the 50s and 60s, relies on contemporary collections from Timberlake to reflect the warm sophistication of the design. The sleek Lausanne slab doors in near-noir Maple Espresso extend a unified furniture-style look through the home, appearing in the kitchen, media room, loft, master bedroom, powder room, office, family room, art gallery and dining room. Phil Kean, whose trio of Phil Kean Designs companies served as the architect, builder and interior design service for TNAH, describes the effect: “This rich, almost black, tone gets pulled into this White Box, and it warms up the whole house. It’s a really good blend.”

In the master and guest baths and the art studio, the clean white of New Haven Maple Linen was chosen to add a counterpoint to darker shades throughout the rest of the home. A classic line and coloring creates a timeless feel that never feels outdated.
