Tom Vecchio, Designer
Tom Vecchio has been designing classic, custom kitchens for more than 30 years. A master at intricate detailing for both traditional and modern designs, Tom joined Bilotta’s New York City showroom in 2004 and has since built a very dedicated following of clients, often designing an owner’s second and third home. His critical attention to detail is one of his best traits, giving his clients complete confidence in his ability to bring their dream kitchens to life.
Over the years Tom has been inducted multiple times into Rutt Cabinetry’s “President’s Club” for yearly sales exceeding $1M. In the summer of 2007, Tom designed the dream kitchen and pantry for the prestigious “Idea House” hosted by Hamptons Cottages & Gardens Magazine, visited by hundreds of people. Tom’s Rutt Classic display in the New York City showroom, with its signature blue color, has become synonymous with Bilotta Kitchens, attracting countless visitors. The beautiful curved mullion doors Tom designed for the display are now part of Rutt’s standard offerings and have been used for various other projects since then.
Tom has also done a substantial amount of multi-unit work in major luxury high-rises in Manhattan. In 2006, Tom, in conjunction with Cetra Ruddy Architects, did the kitchens and bathrooms for the 36 units at “40E66 Street”, the last Rosario Candela building in the city to be converted to a condominium. The project, on the corner of East 66th Street and Madison Avenue, was featured on a Kips Bay House Tour, one of the most prestigious tours in the industry. In 2013, Tom was awarded a $5.4M project consisting of 157 high-end kitchens designed in concert with Robert A.M. Stern Architects for Thirty Park Place, Four Seasons Private Residences in lower Manhattan - “the perfect Tribeca home.” The kitchens featured Bilotta Collection Cabinetry in rift cut white oak with a custom stain, Gaggenau appliances and Colorado white marble tops. Thirty Park Place was the vision of Silverstein Properties, the design of Robert A.M. Stern Architects and marketed by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. Tom’s latest project is a $25M residential condominium skyscraper, 220 Central Park South, where he is designing Bilotta Collection kitchens for 88 luxury units overlooking Central Park. It is a collaboration with owner, Vornado Realty Trust, Lend Lease Properties, The Office of Thierry Despont, Robert A.M. Stern Architects, and SLCE Architects.
