Founded in 1984 by kitchen interior designer Mick De Giulio, de Giulio kitchen design has two Chicago area showrooms, including one at LuxeHome in the Merchandise Mart.
Melding modern and classical vocabularies, de Giulio’s distinctive compositions are inspired by cultural influences and technology, and combine an experienced sensibility to craft, fine detail, and classic proportion. de Giulio has built a reputation for exceptional design and an unsurpassed level of service. The company’s mission statement reflects this dedication to excellence: de Giulio is dedicated to being a leader in design and to consistently exceeding client expectations with excellence in presentation, product and service, while offering its employees a secure, enjoyable and creative environment. The Franklin Report (a survey of the best home services, remodeling, repairs and renovations available) recognized de Giulio, giving the company their highest rating of five stars across all categories, including work quality, cost evaluation, and value analysis.
de Giulio’s commitment to excellence goes beyond the day-to-day operations of the business itself. The company supports several charitable organizations and has provided kitchen remodels and installations for organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Catholic Charities, Boys Hope/Girls Hope, and Tabitha House.
de Giulio designs have been extensively published. They have been featured in many national magazines, including House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Town & Country, Trends, Interior Design, Veranda, and Better Homes and Gardens as well as several international publications including, Essential Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom and Kitchen & Bathroom Designer (UK), Elle Decoration and Domizil (Germany), Keukens (Netherlands), Ottagono (Italy), Nile (Japan), and InsideOut (Dubai). In October 2010, Balcony Press released Mick De Giulio’s first book, Kitchen Centric.
de Giulio designers frequently draw inspiration from worldwide architecture and design. Their consummate understanding of cultural influences and architecture from around the world is intuitively translated into their unique and innovative designs.
“When it comes to constructing one of the home’s most important rooms, de Giulio kitchen design is an international leader in the business...if anything reflects new inventions in the kitchen, especially when it comes to beauty, function, and longevity, it’s de Giulio kitchen design.”
