Waterworks Names Immerse as Boutique Partner of the Year 2nd Year in a Row
This is the only time a partner has been honored twice
St. Louis, Mo – Immerse, St. Louis’ premier experiential kitchen and bath plumbing gallery, has been named Waterworks’ 2017 Boutique Partner of the Year. This annual award recognizes the top location from the luxury bath and kitchen company’s 25 North American boutique partners for excellence in sales and customer service. This marks the gallery’s second win, as it was also selected in 2016 after only one year of partnership with Waterworks.
“It is humbling to receive this award two years in a row from such an innovative company,” said Leigh Suffian, partner at Immerse. “As the first and only showroom to carry Waterworks in St. Louis, we are proud to dedicate 10% of our space to the iconic brand and to give our local community access to its unique styles and offerings.”
Immerse’s partnership with Waterworks began in 2015 after competing with a Pittsburgh showroom in a very selective process to become the company’s next partner. The St. Louis boutique was ultimately chosen for its knowledgeable staff, stunning art gallery-like showroom, and dedication to helping clients experience kitchens and bathrooms differently.
Just over two years later, the partnership has proven fruitful for both parties.
“We at Waterworks wish to sincerely congratulate Immerse, St. Louis for being awarded our 2017 Boutique Partner of the Year again,” said Melenda Ness, Waterworks’ Regional Sales Manager. “Since day one they have shown extraordinary commitment to developing the Waterworks brand in the St Louis market. Their team truly embraces our commitment to authentic design and strong relationships within the design community.”
Born from the need for an innovative plumbing fixture studio in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area, Immerse was founded in 2011 to provide the design community with a completely new way to interact with plumbing fixtures. Located at 836 Hanley Industrial Court in Brentwood, the studio offers clients an interactive shopping experience complete with working tubs, shower heads, faucets, a steam shower and more. Of the 60 product brands from around the world offered, eight are exclusive in St. Louis to Immerse. Unlimited creative possibilities, premium brands and styles, and first-class service make Immerse the number one choice for designers, plumbers, contractors, homeowners, and builders.
