For four generations, eggersmann has been crafting warm-modern kitchens that embody quality, precision and craftsmanship. As the oldest family-owned cabinetry manufacturer in Germany, the brand continues to draw from its 116-year history to innovate in authentic and meaningful ways. So, when the opportunity arose for eggersmann USA to join forces with the equally quality-minded CUBIC Outdoor Living, a third-generation family business tracing back to Germany’s Rhön region, the union was a natural one. “The family tie-in seems fortuitous,” says Evan Soltoff, VP of operations for eggersmann USA, “but it goes beyond that. Since they come from a true countryside town, it’s nearly the entire town that gets involved. CUBIC Managing Director Michael Müller’s friends and family have become the support structure, the marketing team, production team, sales, and more.”
Having built its reputation on cabinetry crafted from granite, marble, quartz, and steel finishes, eggersmann USA has had materials and custom solutions covered not only in the kitchen but also in closets, living areas, media rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and more. Thanks to its new CUBIC partnership, OUTDOOR LIVING by eggersmann USA, the same bespoke approach is now offered for luxury living solutions outside through handcrafted outdoor furniture and specialized outdoor kitchen cabinetry with built-in appliances and sinks.
The new OUTDOOR LIVING by eggersmann USA collection features CUBIC’s outdoor furniture and accessories from dining tables and chairs to customizable lounge seating and coffee tables. Furniture, cabinetry, and chests are available in varying sizes and wood including the rain- and snow-proof chest that stores pillows and cushions year-round. “The waterproof chests and cushion boxes are the things that started the waterproofing journey into cabinetry,” Soltoff says. “Here you can have the same color and theme carried through your entire outdoor furniture experience.”
The new outdoor collection available in eggersmann showrooms around the country will feature CUBIC’s full line including its Kitchen in a Cupboard where the company began. The modular unit is a singular solution that opens to reveal the outdoor kitchen elements and then closes to conceal them when not in use, keeping a clean and uncluttered aesthetic while protecting against inclement weather. Other popular innovative custom outdoor living solutions include The Bar in a Cupboard and the Kitchen in a Table with its unique concealed induction cooker built in to the table. “You can customize based on the depth, height, and width,” Soltoff says. “Whether you want a specialty application for your Big Green Egg or you’re more of a built-in pizza oven kind of barbecue person. You can have the unit on legs or on a base. You can have it with wood, stone, lacquer or a combination of all materials. You can have the sink integrated in stone or covered in stainless steel. They are all the same when it comes to care and service and how they easily wrap up for the winterization.” Further, you can coordinate colors between your indoor and outdoor products matching in lacquer and natural stone, seamlessly merging your interior and exterior spaces.
Beyond material and craftsmanship, the two brands have a common reverence for the planet and follow an ethos of sustainability in their sourcing and manufacturing processes. Both use FSC-certified woods and the outdoor offerings use water-based, environmentally friendly finishes and paints. “The market for outdoor products around the world is just hitting its stride and with people realizing that they can really do more than just the standard BBQ outside, the capacity and demand for full outdoor kitchens is projected to outpace the growth rate of the indoor furniture market over the next few years,” Soltoff says. “CUBIC’s products offer completely customized color options, customized shapes, sizes, and patterns and, of course, it’s all made to order. It was a match made in heaven. I couldn’t find another company that would have matched better if I tried, and I did try.”
