Italy Trip

One half of the “Material Girls" duo just got back from a business trip to Italy. The goal of the trip was to get training on a cabinet line, Aran. Lauren had worked on an installation of this product, but many questions still needed to be answered (especially since half of the software is in Italian). After spending time in Rome, the group headed to the “Industrial Zone” of Italy, all expecting it to resemble Detroit. Could not have been more wrong, the countryside is BEAUTIFUL.

The Aran Headquarters include their manufacturing facilities, where they make all of their wood doors, like the ones we installed in this Austin, Texas home.

Fun doors!!!

The training was very beneficial, and lots of great Italian food and wine was consumed!
Other highlights of the trip were sightseeing in Rome and the Ruins in Ostia…Here are a few of our favorite pictures…

Hanging Lantern at St. Peter’s

Fell in love with these windows at the Vatican. We love the graphic pattern as well as the light blue/ mustard yellow color combination!
