Consumers Invited to Submit Kitchen Design Questions through Social Campaign for Personalized Responses from Renowned Designer

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., June 5, 2014 – The kitchen is one of the most challenging rooms in the house to design. LG Studio and renowned designer and decorator Nate Berkus want to change that by offering real solutions and real inspiration with a new web and social media campaign all geared toward helping consumers to have the kitchen of their dreams.

That’s why Berkus and LG Electronics, maker of premium LG Studio appliances, are inviting consumers to share their inspiration for what would make their signature kitchen via the dedicated landing page or using #LGStudio on Twitter. 

Starting today, fans can share questions and their personal design inspiration with Berkus for a chance to receive a signed copy of his best-selling book, “The Things That Matter.”*  Berkus and the LG Studio team will also choose a select number of submissions that inspire them the most and share real-time responses from Berkus, live from the LG Studio kitchen in New York on June 19.

“Renovating a kitchen can be very daunting. In the end, you want something you'll love just as much in 15 years as you did the day you moved in. To do that, you have to start with what feels timeless. Your appliances should feel forever and with the beauty of the LG Studio brand that’s covered,” said Berkus.  

“This campaign is meant to address the rest of it, the details, the story, the moments that matter most in your home.  That’s why I’m excited about this kick off. It’s a real-time conversation about what makes your home your own…and the answer to that is YOU, even in a space as hard-working as the kitchen,” he said.

The LG Studio line provides an uncompromising approach to design and function, delivering an enriched cooking experience for today’s home chefs.  The full kitchen suite has been designed with seamless integration in mind, highlighting clean lines and a unique, modern feel that enhances every kitchen’s decor.

From built-in mega-capacity refrigerator-freezers to cooking appliances and dishwashers, LG Studio’s signature style includes premium stainless steel, distinctive door handles and knobs, LCD touch screen control panels, as well as radiant interior LED lighting – all helping to achieve a refined, sophisticated look.

“At LG we share Nate’s passion for design that both inspires and empowers consumers,” said David VanderWaal, head of marketing for LG Electronics USA. “This social media campaign is intended to engage with consumers and help tell the story about how LG Studio appliances blend best-in-class innovation with bold, sleek design to give homeowners a sophisticated kitchen that they’re proud to own and show off.”
