    Was curious if you’ve had a chance to look at Fabuwood’s new frameless line (illume) and thoughts in comparison to poggenpohl, bulthaup, snaidero (besides obviously a lot less expensive)?

      Hi Joseph,
      Yes, since we carry Fabuwood we know Illume. This is Fabuwood’s second release of Frameless cabinetry. The first, Fabuwood Prima, had one feature that would have been amazing in Illume. Prima had plywood core construction. Fabuwood specializes in quality construction at affordable pricing. The new Illume line has a slightly thicker box than Prima did, but without the Plywood core.

      It is essentially constructed like all the better made frameless brands that have laminate and foil finishes like Poggenpohl. For painted or woodgrain finishes, frameless brands like the Bishop, Brighton, and Wellsford lines we carry are made with a 3/4″plywood box. This is far better constructed than most of the popular names in frameless cabinetry.

      However, plywood cannot be laminated with Melamines and other foils so on the contemporary door styles it would have been impressive if they had kept the plywood core on the 3/4″ frameless box and actually been better constructed than brands like Poggenpohl for a fraction of the price.

      Overall Illume is a good offering but we sell very little of it so it may go the way of Prima. So many cabinet companies have lost money trying to sell frameless cabinets.

      Architects and many designers L O V E frameless and have been predicting a wave of US frameless sales for over 50 years. That wave has never materialized, except in some upscale urban settings. The US general public prefers better constructed framed cabinetry and the introduction of US framed imports now means better constructed cabinetry is available at the price of poorly made frameless brands like IKEA.
