Paul Hudock – Warehouse

Celebrating 8 years with SFBD

Paul Hudock brings keen attention to detail like none other. His presence and work in the warehouse is a big part of having happy customers. Paul loves to keep the warehouse neat and organized which definitely helps support the entire Santa Fe By Design team. Paul manages all products coming in and going out of the warehouse, making sure all are clearly labeled so that when these products go to job sites (our customers? homes), it is easy to know where the products go and where they need to installed. Paul works hard to make this process seamless and we love that he does.

PRODUCT & BRAND FEATURE

New: VOLA at Santa Fe By Design on February 16.

VOLA is manufactured by VOLA A/S a well established Danish company founded in 1873, owned and run by the Overgaard family.

Shortly after Arne Jacobsen won a competition in 1961 for his design of the National Bank of Denmark he was contacted by the owner of VOLA A/S, Verner Overgaard who introduced his proposal for a new type of wall-mounted mixer tap. He imagined a design where all the mechanical parts of the mixer are hidden leaving only the handles and spout exposed. At the time this was a completely new concept, but Jacobsen realized that this idea combined with his functional approach to design could be developed. With that basic principle in mind, it was conceived the simple and concise VOLA design that we know today was conceived.

The display will be ready on February 16. Come by the showroom at 1512 Pacheco Street, visit us and check out this beautiful display.
