The 30th Anniversary of the Ohio Design Centre – And the day Atelier Lapchi, Cleveland won for “Best Tasting Cake” in the Let Us Eat Cake contest! Congratulations to Thom Capretta, Showroom Manager, and Sasha Goldstein, Lapchi National Sales Director, and to the staff of the Ohio Design Centre on a great turnout and a wonderful design day.
In honor of the Ohio Design Centre’s 30th, each showroom teamed with a local baker to present a cake during the Fall Market Day events.
Atelier Lapchi paired up with Phyllis Lester, a lovely & highly acclaimed Ohio cake designer, who created a three layer, sinfully rich Black Forest Cake, with Chocolate Mousse filling and Italian Meringue butter cream frosting. Phyllis borrowed the graceful Quill pattern from Lapchi’s André Arbus Design Collection for the exterior, but wowed the crowded Atelier showroom judging with her award-winning cake.
The only way to top the cake was to spend the afternoon with Thom and Sasha as they spoke about Lapchi and the creation of the André Arbus Collection on display in Atelier Lapchi.
An icon of French 20th c. design, Arbus re-defined the traditional language of the French decorative arts in a clean, stylized manner. Trained within a family heritage of fine furniture manufacturing, Arbus further extended his personal interests and education to include interior design, architecture, and landscape. Maybe even cake……
