Friday Favorite: The Mark

Courts, lanes, games, grill and beautiful Ellesmere™ countertops. That's what you'll find at The Mark, a family-fun entertainment venue in Elkhorn, Nebraska, which is this week's favorite installation. The venue is home to bowling leagues, cosmic bowling, sand volleyball, indoor volleyball, arcade games, lasertag, and so much more.

We think Ellesmere™ is the perfect choice for any entertaining area.

FRIDAY FAVORITE: Cambria Gallery

This week's Friday Fave is dedicated to our stunning Cambria gallery located in our very own Urbandale showroom. This gallery is filled with Cambria quartz; from the door jambs, to the samples, to the bar top, to the full-size slabs on the walls. It was designed to allow customers to view larger pieces of quartz to get an idea of what it will look like installed in their home. 

If you're in the Urbandale area, feel free to stop by and check it out. We are located at 11271 Meredith Drive Urbandale, Iowa 50322.

CKF Omaha Hosts ASID - NE/IA's Kickoff Event

Our Omaha location was delighted to host all of the talented designers from the Nebraska and Iowa chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers' Kickoff Event. Members learned about opportunities for the upcoming year, and WE were ecstatic to have them in our showroom to give them a peek at the five new Cambria designs. We hope everyone had a great time, and we are proud to sponsor such a great group of talent. 


FRIDAY FAVORITE: Custom Pedestal Sink Base

In continuing with sharing our FAVORITE installations every Friday, this week we are bringing you the coolest custom sink pedestal there ever was. A lot of technical work went into this project from design to finish by our C.O.R.E. department, as well as our C.A.D. department. The homeowner was ecstatic to see their idea come to life!

Featured design: Cambria in Minera™


The design is a 6 cm chiseled top and base, 3 cm mitered vertical center piece, and the vertical center piece is not permanently fixed or used as a structural support.

The base is easily removable to access plumbing when needed.

Friday Favorite: Beacon Hills in Aksarben Village

It's time for another installment of Friday Faves. This week's post is all about the incredible bar installed at Beacon Hills restaurant in Aksarben Village in Omaha. You may notice the super thick-looking bar top and different bar heights; that look is achieved by mitering and stacking pieces of quartz to make the edges appear extra thick. 

Props to our C.O.R.E. department (Countertop Order Review and Evaluation) for reviewing the project and making absolute sure that there were enough supports to hold a bar top of this size and weight.

Bar Top: Cambria in Berkeley™
Builder: McNeil Company Builders
