A Valentine Would Be Divine!

b Solitaire Happening - February 13, 2018

It was a LOVEfest at bulthaup Los Angeles with Valentines lovingly made to Bruce Goff, Alvar Aalto, Ray Eames, Luis Barragan, and more! Those who did not have a chance to create a Valentine to their favorite artist or designer in advance did so on site with traditional materials that harkened back to the days of our youth…construction paper, doilies, glitter…remember? And if not inspired to create, there was inspiration to nibble, on Piadini with prosciutto, crab cakes, crispy artichoke, ahi tuna with avocado, and, of course, gourmet chocolate confetti!

A Bite for Peace

Dinner and Gathering of Community – July 23, 2017

Chef Natalia Pereira has projects she wants to see realized in Africa: even as simple as providing goats to a village. Her A Bite for Peace gatherings are about people coming together around a table to share stories, promote peace and community, and to raise some funds to make her projects happen. bulthaup Los Angeles was pleased to be host of this most recent dinner experience. The menu reflected flavors and ingredients of Kenya, served family style, culminating in an incredible coconut lamb stew. There was much laughter at the table and in the kitchen as everyone enjoyed good food and each other.

    Every kitchen should tell a story.

    Our displays are designed not only to look good, but also to perform. We host large events and intimate dinner parties with top chefs in the showroom - to demonstrate the authenticity and sensuality of our kitchens, and more importantly to provide a place where you can feel at home.

    Avatars in the Kitchen - April 20, 2017 - Pecha Kucha* .01

    bulthaup Los Angeles hosted our first Pecha Kucha with ten presenters all in top Avatar form! The group was a mix of architects and clients and the variations on the theme ranged from the humorous to the provocative. Spork anyone? Well, yes, for the ice cream that followed the show. It was an evening of frivolity with equal parts intensity and contemplation.

    *Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each for a total presentation lasting 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
