Cameo Kitchens & Lori Morris: A Design Dream Team
Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry and interior designer Lori Morris have collaborated to create a kitchen that fuses performance with luxury.
Backed by almost 40 years in the business, Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry has outfitted some of the finest homes and condominiums in the Greater Toronto Area. Working with a principle to “never abandon hand craftsmanship in favour of the mass produced,” all of the brand’s projects are one-offs, developed in partnership with builders, designers and homeowners.
Its most recent collaboration is with Lori Morris Design, an interior designer who enjoys adopting different narratives into a space and telling a story with every room. Together, the two design establishments have created a kitchen of the highest standard to the tastes of an unnamed client.
“Our Lori Morris designs are thoughtful curations, blending form and function with each detail selected for its ability to infuse luxury and exceptional performance into every aspect of the space,” says Morris.
“The design for this kitchen fulfilled the functional requirements of a busy family while offering a luxurious experience for even the most discerning chef. My love of nature, classic architecture and haute couture fashion has always inspired my designs. This family cottage kitchen was no exception,” Morris continues.
Where the cabinetry and counters are delivered in monochrome, the smaller details — such as patterned tile backsplashes and oak floors — add another textural layer and elevate the overall experience. It comes together in a way that emphasizes the specialties of both Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry and Lori Morris, without either being lost in the room.
“What makes this the perfect collaboration is how we prioritize our clients’ needs and go above and beyond to make their vision come to life”Marwan Rizek, founder and principal of Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry
“Clean lines, with a soft, sophisticated palette, reflect the sense of calm of the lakeside setting, while the luxurious material selections elevate the look and feel of every surface,” Morris notes.
The collaboration with Morris isn’t the first undertaken by Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry. In the past, the brand has worked with Kelly Cray, a partner and design principal at U31, who’s been working in the field since 1996, winning awards for his work.
The company’s collaboration roster also includes Lorne Rose of Nazem + Rose Design Inc., an award-winning interior design firm that specializes in luxury property with a focus on craft and working with the highest quality brands in the trade. Shari Lerner Interior Design is another of Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry’s past collaborators. As a boutique firm in Toronto, Shari Lerner Interior Design has a focus on customization, balancing good design with function and creating spaces that incorporate luxury into everyday life.
The collaboration with Morris is their latest and comes as part of an extensive Lori Morris Design renovation. “We’re extremely honoured to work with Lori Morris in creating the ultimate dream kitchen for our clients,” says Marwan Rizek, founder and principal of Cameo Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry.
“Both Lori and I understand how people live in their homes and believe in using only the highest quality of materials to make sure that sense of luxury is never lost. What makes this the perfect collaboration is how we prioritize our clients’ needs and go above and beyond to make their vision come to life.”
