Meet the Team: Stacy Carsello

November 18, 2013

Stacy has been a Designer at Seigles for 2 years. We sat down with her to get to know more about what makes her tick. Read on to find out more about her design thoughts, the most thrilling thing she’s done, and even her favorite comfort food.

StacyWhat is your role at Seigles?  
Design and Sales at the Mundelein Showroom.

What is your favorite thing about working at Seigles?
Everyone supports each other.

What is your favorite project you’ve worked on and why?  
Most recently, a condo in Northbrook. They chose to go with cabinetry from my the Decora display that I just installed, and I can’t wait to see the final product. It includes dark grey paint, beaded inset, and all glass! I applaud them for thinking out of the box.

What is your favorite option in today’s kitchens?  
My new paper towel holder from a converted drawer.

Over your years in the business, what was the worst design trend you encountered?
I really don’t like desks in the kitchen. All they’ve ever done is create clutter. Oh, and anything to do with a cow in the kitchen. Sorry Allyson!!

If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?  
Rigatoni Bolognese or Chicken and Dumplings. I’m all about comfort food. Mr. Seigle was probably hoping I’d say pound cake, but it’s dinner. Who eats pound cake for dinner? Right?

What’s your guilty pleasure?
My pot of tea and biscotti in the morning while I read my book. And pizza! I can’t get enough pizza. I also love kayaking.

What is the most thrilling thing you’ve ever done?  
Parasailing.

What is your favorite room in your house?
Whatever room my girls are in.

If you had a 25 hour day while everyone else had only 24, what would you do with your extra time?  
Enjoy the peace and quiet! No phone or emails!

What is the top item on your bucket list?  
Travel. First stop, Ireland or Italy!!

November 2, 2012

Artspace, a 55-unit live/work housing development for artists in downtown Elgin has started welcoming tenants. This $14.5 million project is meant to attract artists to affordable housing in downtown Elgin, while at the same time revitalizing downtown and establishing Elgin as an arts community. The project is developed by Artspace Projects, Inc., a nonprofit developer of arts facilities. We are proud to have provided the kitchen cabinets for these cool new residences.

The building includes housing, gallery space, a community room, a playground, courtyard, and commercial space. Learn more about the project, including how to apply to live there if you are an artist, at their website.

Artspace is made possible by federal tax credits and state affordable housing tax credits from the Illinois Housing Development Authority. In addition, our own Mark Seigle raised $500,000 in the private sector for the project, as he believes in the power of this community to contribute to a vibrant downtown and enhance Elgin’s cultural offerings.

Seigle’s supplying cabinets for Chicago’s Admiral at the Lake

October 4, 2011

Seigle’s Cabinet Center has been selected to supply all of the cabinets in the brand new Admiral at the Lake in Chicago. This urban retirement living community is an exciting and stylish place to retire in the city. The project consists of 200 independent living units, 41 assisted living units, and a variety of common areas. We decided to share more about this project by talking with Joe Niewinski the Seigle’s Sales Representative.

What is your role in the project?  
As the Seigle’s sales person assigned to this account I work closely with Bovis Lend Lease’s purchasing office coordinating contracts, homeowner changes, and architectural changes, and supplying final cabinet layouts. Working with the field personnel I set up the deliveries, field measure all units, and coordinate cabinet installation.

When will Seigles begin delivering product?
We have been working on this project for over 2 years in the design and negotiation stage. Seigle’s will start shipping cabinets the beginning of November 2011.

Will cabinets be selected by the homeowners or will they be universal throughout the building?
The original standard cabinets have been chosen by the developers. The homeowner is offered a selection of colors. We have also created an upgrade assortment of door styles and colors the homeowner may choose at their final color selection meeting.

What type of cabinets are being installed (or what are the options for
selection)?
The project is being supplied with Aristokraft and Contractors’ Choice Cabinets by Masterbrand.

What do you like best about the project?
It is nice to be working on a project of this size. Also the Lend Lease team has been a pleasure to work with; their attention to detail makes for a smooth running project.
