SYDNEY, NSW: Fisher & Paykel is putting up its hand for a piece of the $7 billion kitchen renovation pie, announcing a partnership with the Coco Republic Design School in Sydney.

Described as a “fusion” with the Design Centre Enmore, the Coco Republic Design School is home to decorators, artists, industry professionals, renovators and designers. Fisher & Paykel will be presenting a series of one day workshops focused on design and functionality considerations when choosing new kitchen appliances.

According to this announcement, Australians will spend $7.2 billion on kitchen makeovers across this year and next. Here’s F&P marketing manager Peter Russell talking more about this partnership.

“The value of investment and the standard of improvements consumers are making to their homes is again on the rise with a forecast increase of 5.2 per cent to spending on kitchens this year,” Russell said. “With that growth, there’s also demand for the latest knowledge and best design know-how, and Fisher & Paykel is delighted to have been asked to assist.”

And here’s Coco Republic executive chairman Paul Spon-Smith.

“Consumers are hungry for information and so when it came to hearing from industry experts about what’s happening with kitchen appliances and design we couldn’t think of any better leader in the field than Fisher & Paykel,” he said.
