About the Designer: Todd Wiley, TruKitchen’s Senior Designer, has been working in the industry for the past 25 years. His passion ignited in college when he started working for a builder and cabinet shop owner. Realizing that he had to immerse himself in the industry to learn, he took a job at local shop on the Lake Michigan shoreline. As his passions grew, he moved on to Standard Kitchen Distributors where he continued to master the trade. This experience gave him the exposure to the systems and process that he was searching for. Feeling like there was more to learn on the design-end of the business, Todd then spent 7 years at a Cascade based design shop. For him, this experience gave him what he needed to further pursue his passion and open his own design shop, which is where he is today.

Designer Tip: “Be willing to break the rules and adapt to client needs. In this instance, every member of the family is over 6 feet tall and we wanted to ensure the design wasn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but comfortable for them to use as well. The counter height in the kitchen is 38” and we had custom cabinetry built taller to accommodate.”

His company and brand are recognized as the ultimate in luxury cabinetry design and there are many hundreds of rooms of beautiful cabinetry gracing homes in the United States and internationally.  The classic understated elegance that has become the mark of his work has allowed the company some very special opportunities.  Christopher has been invited to participate in the New York City Kips Bay Show House on seven occasions, has appeared on national television, he has been featured in many of the national newspapers, as well as having his work regularly published.  He is in a rare position being able to say that he has truly left his mark in the homes of two U.S. presidents, both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, as well as many celebrity clients and captains of industry.

Christopher proudly designs and manufactures his products from his own U.S. workshop, located in West Virginia.  Peacock’s style of cabinetry has been imitated many times, but his creations remain singularly his own.

According to Antoinette Fraser “Chris’s genius lies in his relentless editing,” says Fraser, a Montclair resident. “His style is always being copied—but no one ever quite gets it right. The amount of detail that goes into our furniture would frustrate the most seasoned cabinetmaker.”
