DOD Announced a Brand New Product Line

Dec 12, 2023

(Chicago, IL): Designs of Distinction [DOD] recently announced a brand-new product line to be introduced at KBIS 2024 (Booth #N1863). This new product line includes Base Shapes for Use with Tambour Panels. DOD plans to introduce three new shapes – Angled (shown below), Cylinder, and Rectangle – at KBIS 2024, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from February 27-29, 2024.

DOD’s new Base Shapes were inspired by key findings from NKBA’s 2024 Kitchen Trends Reports, including: multi-functional islands designed for seating and gathering, incorporation of natural and organic materials, and geometric shapes reminiscent of Art Deco design styles.

Angled and Rectangle base shapes are constructed with solid wood ends and solid maple plywood side panels. Solid maple plywood panels allow for greater structural build, as opposed to MDF. DOD includes a template to cut Tambour, which is then applied to the solid plywood side panels and finished with paint or stain of your choice.

The Cylinder base shape is manufactured from multiple layers of heavyweight paperboard, with a similar density to MDF. Tambour is applied to the exterior of the Cylinder, then painted or stained in a finish of your choice. The Cylinder shape includes end plugs with a hole to allow for additional support and electrical wiring.

Each shape measures 34.5”H and features recessed panels for bevel, bead, cove and square style Tambour up to ½” thick. Shapes and Tambour are shipped unfinished, ready to stain or paint upon delivery. Simply choose a shape and apply your favorite style of Tambour to create stunning and sturdy supports.
