SPA-TACULAR PARTY!

By Christa Sorauf

Last Thursday, Gregs and I had the pleasure of attending a great party at Gateway Supply Company in Greenville that featured fabulous food, craft beers and all the latest trends in baths and spas. If you’ve never visited their showroom, Gateway Supply Company has been locally owned and operated for 50 years and features a beautiful showroom of the industry’s leading manufacturers. The party couldn’t be more perfectly timed because I dream of a hot bath at the end of these cold days in a bathroom suite just like this…

Since I’m from Wisconsin, we stopped by and talked to Tom and Albert from Kohler, which also hails from my home state. The company is located in Kohler, Wisconsin, which features a beautiful golf resort and when you go there you really understand the respect this company has for craftsmanship and artistry. While the company can trace its roots to the 1800s, Kohler products are very forward thinking just check out the moxie showerhead + wireless speaker
