San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 11, 2011
A royal warrant of appointment, or becoming an Official Purveyor, is one of the highest honors a company can receive. World-renowned Scandinavian kitchen design and cabinetry company Kvänum has been chosen as the Royal Court of Sweden’s Official Purveyor of kitchen, bathroom and storage design and supply.
Royal warrants of appointment have been issued for centuries to those who supply goods or services to a royal court. Several royal families allow companies to advertise their royal patronage as Official Purveyors, including the ruling dynasties of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Thailand, Denmark and Sweden.
Kvänum’s first job as Official Purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden was to install kitchen, bathroom, and storage cabinetry in the Haga Palace in Stockholm, Sweden. The Haga Palace is home to newlyweds Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, and her husband Prince Daniel, Duke of Västergötland. The couple moved into the Haga Palace after their wedding in 2010 and have chosen Kvänum to do the storage, bathroom and kitchen remodel of the over-200-year-old Swedish castle.
“The company is a family business and its loyalty to traditions is familiar to the royal circles,” explained Kvänum San Francisco showroom manager Natalia Nordström.
Official Purveyors usually advertise the royal warrant by displaying the heraldic badge of the royalty they are supplying with services. Underneath the coat of arms, the phrase "By Appointment to..." with the title and name of the royal customer is inscribed.
Kvänum kitchens are created personally for each client and have been awarded prizes, such as Elle magazine’s Elle Deco International Design Award, for their design. Kvänum San Francisco kitchen design and cabinetry showroom is currently the only retail outlet for high-end Scandinavian kitchen and bathroom cabinets in California and North America. The award-winning firm works directly with end customers, designers, contractors and architects on both residential and multi unit projects.
“Furniture is available in various design options: from trendy to vintage,” said Nordström. “Besides regular designers, Kvänum invites artists with modern views to develop new furniture designs. Swedish experts, on the other hand, create classic furniture designs and draw inspiration from ancient Nordic castles and manor houses.”
The Swedish Royal Court made a sensible decision when appointing Kvänum as one of its Official Purveyors. The company is an acknowledged leader of the Swedish kitchen cabinetry market. They create high-quality kitchens and furnishing solutions with style and functionality for new buildings, house/apartment renovations, and now, castles.
