David Kohler and Laura Bielecki at Armani Restaurante January 2013
I had a wonderful and impromptu dinner this evening at the luxurious Armani Restaurante hotel with an array of Dubai’s design elite. Special guest and man of the night being Mr. David Kohler, president of the world renowned kitchen & bathroom plumbing empire. Mr. Kohler was elected President and COO of the company in 2009 and has pushed to make some great leaps with the family owned US based company. Kohler is excitedly anticipating the opening of the largest Kohler showroom in the Middle East in Dubai at the end of March. Yours truly will be on location for the opening to report.
David Kohler. I think the companies tag line also fits its charming president…
For any one who has lived in the dark for the past 20 years, Kohler is a mid-high end plumbing company. They specialize in everything kitchen and bath plumbing related items for residential and commercial bathrooms from faucets to toilets and bathtubs.
On another note, Restaurante has to be one of the finest Dubai restaurants I have been to yet. It is simple and quiet with clean detailing and a large but incredibly comfortable environment.The food was simply exquisite and the ladies desert of a giant pearl with gold leaf was remarkable and truly one of a kind.

The 3 day exclusive invite only event which began this evening is filled with luxury brands to dazzle our life. Luxury in Dubai is defined according to this event along with many of the UAE’s elite as a combination of brands such as:
Hastens beds with a new introduction of an exclusive Hotel range of luxury mattresses targeted at the unique, customer driven, 5 star hotel market. Not to mention a classic range of residential products that can make you melt into a blissful nights sleep.
Steinway handcrafted music hall quality pianos (1,000 max. made per year) along with its counterpart Crystal Rocked Pianos an exclusive and luxury collection of Swarovski clad instruments.
Bentley motors rolled up with their luxury lineup.
Cantonnet & Cantonnet rocked their bling earrings
