PAMELA & BILL COSLET of GENEVA | Local Couple With a Love for Home Design


Local Infuential-Chicago, Pamela and Bill Coslet, Vineayrd Chic Kitchens

INSPIRED BY TRAGEDY

Out of a Love for Redesigning their Own Home After Losing It in a Terrible Fire, Vineyard Chic Kitchens was Born

WEST SUBURBAN CHICAGO–In 2008, a fire destroyed Bill and Pamela Coslet’s house. While it was devastating, they realized that it gave them a chance to rebuild what would become their dream home. They designed and built their own home without the help of a builder. During the experience, they realized that they loved the entire design and build process, and since they also loved to visit wineries, Vineyard Chic Inc. (also known as Vineyard Chic Kitchens) was born.

They have built their business with a personal touch attained from their own experiences; and even though, Pam had been a manager for many years for a large corporation and her husband, Bill had done various things including "flipping houses", they weren't prepared for the amount of product and service knowledge that was needed for their new company. Thankfully, they were able to gain that knowledge very quickly though through researching, attending classes, and trial and error.

They started their business in 2009 during the housing market crunch by offering an affordable option using existing cabinets. Since that time, they've added more product and service options, including new cabinetry to meet the needs of a wider variety of clientele. Maintaining profitability with the changing marketplace, environment, and trends is always an ongoing challenge; but, they understand their client’s desire for a high end look without the high end prices.

The couple feels extremely proud of their business growth that has led to the opening of their daughter’s own branch of Vineyard Chic in Madison WI. She is living proof that everything Pamela and Bill have done so far has been worth the effort.
