2012 Traditional Kitchen of the Year
Haskell Matheny, ASID, CAPS, LEED Green Associate, and Sheila Stubbs of Haskell Interiors have been awarded first place for 2012 Best Traditional Kitchen in the 14th Annual Kitchen Design competition conducted by Signature Kitchens & Baths magazine. This is the second year in a row Haskell Interiors has received this national award for kitchen design. The publication has been the #1 selling magazine, in the remodeling category, for Barnes & Noble bookstores for each of the last four years.
The award was announced during the SEN Design Group Fall Conference in Indianapolis, IN with over 200 kitchen and bath industry professionals in attendance. The competition was open to the entire industry with judging provided by three seasoned pros in the industry, including two nationally recognized interior designers, Jeff Andrews and Marcia Prentice, and acclaimed architect, Joel Ives, AIA.
Matheny said that winning the award is a testament to the work ethic of everyone at Haskell Interiors.
“I am extremely honored to have been recognized by Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine for our historic kitchen project,” he said. “Winning first place for the second year in a row is incredible and validates the hard work and detail we strive to put into every project we design.”
Haskell Interiors award winning kitchen design began when an enthusiastic homeowner gutted the entire kitchen, down to the studs, prior to the designers seeing the space – because she was so anxious to get started with a new kitchen. Situated in a historic home it was important that the new kitchen reflect the home’s heritage. At the completion of the project, the owner finally had the perfect combination of modern conveniences and historical character in her new kitchen. The criteria used to judge the design competition included: functional design, selection of attractive and functional products, adequate traffic patterns/clearances, how well the use of space solved the design problem, how the designer’s creativity enhanced the solution, and overall aesthetic value.

First Place Award in Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine Design Competition
Hank Matheny, ASID, Owner and Principal Designer of Haskell Interiors, has been awarded First Place in the baths division of the Signature Kitchens & Baths magazine 9th Annual National Design Competition.
Local Designer, Haskell R. (Hank) Matheny, Wins First Place Award in Signature Kitchens & Baths Magazine Design Competition.
The winning bath submission was a master bath remodel for a client in Chattanooga, TN. The existing master bath was totally gutted allowing for a completely new layout of the room to make way to create the quiet retreat filled with luxury requested by the client. A French toile fabric from the client inspired the look and material selection for the renovation. To give the space a clean, up-to-date feeling, Matheny selected white marble, blue and green glass tile and blue metallic paint for the surfaces and to provide a calm, elegant background to the fixtures and furnishings. Highly reflective materials such as polished nickel, crystal, mirrors and mirrored furniture add spark without fussiness. Cool, light materials were balanced with browns and woods in the custom cabinetry and upholstery. Glamour was added to the room by using monograms, a faux lynx fur rug and a crystal chandelier.
This annual design competition received 45 project submissions from across the United States. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place was awarded in each of four categories. A two-page article highlighting the design created by Mr. Matheny is featured in the Fall 2007 issue of Signature Kitchens & Baths magazine now available nationwide on newsstands, in bookstores and at select home-improvement stores.
First Place in National Design Competition
Haskell Interiors was recently awarded first place in the 43rd annual National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) 2007 design competition. Haskell Interiors was awarded first place in category nine: showrooms. The winning showroom vignette is on display in the Haskell Interiors Kitchen and Bath Gallery located at 85 1st Street, NE, Cleveland, TN. This colorful bath display, designed by Haskell (Hank) Matheny and Kathy Massey, features glass tiles on both the floor and walls, including a custom poppy mural. “To be singled out for this national award is a truly great honor,” Matheny said.
The competition’s theme was Art of the Industry with the idea of finding the next master artists among NKBA members who can transcend the ordinary to create the extraordinary.
NKBA judges awarded first place to Haskell Interiors based on visual appeal, creative elements, principles of design, overall presentation (including quality of floor plan, perspective and photos) and basic safety and ergonomics of the design.
“We wanted the room to give a relaxing feeling like being at the ocean with the blue sky above your head. The entire floor, walls and cabinets are glass, which gives the impression of water. The walls are a light blue to represent the sky and the floor is a darker blue to represent the ocean. The mural above the tub is a custom-made piece of work to accent the bathroom,” said Matheny.
Haskell Interiors competed against a record breaking 567 entries from the United States , Canada and Bermuda.
The competition was separated into 11 distinct categories, each designed to represent the latest trends in kitchen, bath and other-room design. The categories were created to reflect how designers stretch their imaginations and put their creativity to work for their clients in a variety of settings. A panel of 14 industry experts served as judges for this years design competition.
The awards ceremony, honoring 44 finalists, recently took place during the kitchen and bath industry show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kathy Massey was present at the awards ceremony to represent Haskell Interiors and accept the first place honor.
