NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2014) - Baldwin Hardware, a leading brand of the Hardware & Home Improvement (HHI) division of Spectrum Brands Holdings, hosted the grand reveal of its redesigned showroom last night at Simon's Hardware and Bath on Third Avenue in Manhattan. The red-carpet affair attracted architects, designers, industry influencers, media and bloggers. The redesigned showroom was inspired by Baldwin's brand positioning and challenge for customers to "Own It."
"Baldwin is all about being bold this year -- from the complete redesign of our showrooms to the introduction of striking new products like our contemporary Santa Monica collection," said PJ Rosch, Baldwin brand manager. "Our showrooms must reflect the elegant essence and cachet of Baldwin, and Simon's is the perfect embodiment of this."
Aesthetic overhauls include new colors, functionalities and configurations that breathe new, contemporary life into the product displays. The modular redesigns incorporate sophisticated lifestyle imagery and many new displays also feature an iPad with the new Baldwin Lock Designer app, which will help streamline the sales process and educate customers on the vast array of product options through virtual mixing and matching.
