Anna Mesaikos, President

Anna Mesaikos, President

As leader of the design team, Anna sees her beautiful kitchen showroom and gallery as an extension of the brands she represents. She spent her formative years immersed in the arts, which laid the groundwork for her career as a designer.
Anna is drawn to the challenge of space conceptualization and has dedicated her professional life to moving the kitchen
and cabinetry design world forward.

Anna’s grandmother introduced her to the world of Mediterranean cooking. Preparing interesting and healthy meals has since
become a family tradition. So much time spent in the kitchen with her own family is a large part of Anna’s motivation for wanting to design beautiful and functional kitchens for her clients and their families.

For Anna, the rewards of a hard day’s work include a combination of yoga, dance, and pilates.
