"When I started selling kitchens, I quickly understood two things. One is that a store is a significant fixed cost and the other is that to do my job well, which was to 'design the perfect kitchen', I required a real exchange with the client in their home. Only then could I truly understand their design wishes and kitchen goals"

Claude RAISON, Founder
