It’s summer in the city and we’ve found a great way to celebrate the season.  Today, House Beautiful, in collaboration with the one-and-only Barefoot Contessa, will unveil the magazine’s second-annual “dream kitchen.” Located in the heart of NYC, in the famed Rockefeller Center, the “2009 Kitchen of the Year” is said to be the ultimate exploration of how today’s kitchen can nourish, excite and inspire.  This year’s presentation will offer a first-hand look at Garten’s unique design and lifestyle ideas.  An extension of the magazine’s expertise, it will literally bring the magazine’s pages to life with 1,000 square-feet of cutting-edge culinary design and an additional 1,000 square-feet of outdoor entertaining space.

The House Beautiful kitchen features innovative components from a host of partners, including KraftMaid Cabinetry, CaesarStone countertops, Viking appliances, Kohler’s faucet and sink, Glidden paints, Toshiba flat screen TVs, Cuisinart’s food processor, Sunbrella awnings and outdoor fabrics, Crate & Barrel outdoor furniture , tabletop and kitchen accessories, Lee Industries dining chairs, Restoration Hardware‘s dining table, Shaw flooring, Trex decking, Taster’s Choice coffee, Bertolli pasta sauces, Stacy’s Pita Chips, and Ziploc Evolve storage bags.
