December Winning Designs For Zephyr Loves Designers 2021 Contest
Lux Island Range Hood in White | Designed by J. Reiko Design + Co.
Colorado-based designer Jenny Reiko of J. Reiko Design + Co. created this stunning, open kitchen using our Lux Island range hood in white. The Lux Island is part of a kitchen remodel in the prestigious Humboldt Historic District in Denver, CO. Jenny Reiko with Reiko Design honored the original architecture and modernized some features such as the L-shape kitchen.
“Humboldt Street will always have a special place in my heart. Located on Denver’s Humboldt Island — a two-block district that was the first to be deemed a designated historic district by the Denver Landmark. The home has truly classical bones that gave us such a great foundation to work with. The entire four-level home has been updated and given new life in a style that I like to call “A New Traditional.” The Lux Island hood was the perfect solution because we could keep the window views unobstructed. The second-level terrace deck structure that is right above the kitchen wouldn’t allow us to make the hood fully flush, so we incorporated crown molding, and vertical paneling to tie together all of these components and merge old and new. I had used the Lux hood in some of my more contemporary projects, but it was so exciting to find a great use for it in a more traditional home.”

Presrv™ French Door Wine & Beverage Cooler | Designed by Willaby Way
For our Presrv™ category winner, Jordan Willaby with Willaby Way used our Presrv™ French Door Wine & Beverage Cooler to transform a client’s Napa Valley lower level. Inspired from a visit to Napa Valley, the homeowners wanted to create that same feel in their basement. The design turned out beautifully with a wet bar, seating area, and closet-turned-wine cellar. The highlight of the space is our Presrv™ French Door Dual Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler that perfectly stores their wines on one side and beverages on the other.
For our Presrv™ category winer, Jordan Willaby with Willaby Way used our Presrv™ French Door Wine & Beverage Cooler in a client’s Napa Valley lower-level remodel.
“The Presrv™ French Door Dual Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler was an easy choice for the wet bar with its large capacity, full extension wood racks, and perfect temperature control for various wines and beverages.”
— Jordan Willaby of Willaby Way

June Winning Designs For Zephyr Loves Designers 2021 Contest
Ombra Island Range Hood | Designed by Broad Oaks Construction Inc.
Broad Oaks Construction integrated the Ombra Wall ventilation hood into a San Francisco kitchen remodel to complement the open countertops, green cabinetry, and brass details. The homeowners had a clear vision for this kitchen — a stylish and calm aesthetic with a powerful ventilation hood that would handle their cooking needs.

Presrv™ French Door Wine & Beverage Cooler | Designed by Chasing Paper
The Presrv™ French Door Dual Zone Wine & Beverage Cooler is a designer favorite and took the spotlight in both Zephyr Loves Designers 2021 Presrv™ projects. Elizabeth Rees of Chasing Paper transformed a nook in her home into a custom, built-in bar featuring our Presrv™ French Door cooler. She selected Presrv™ for its French Door styling and the ability to store wine on one side and soda, beer, and water on the other.
