Kalamazoo unveils new Arcadia series
October 23, 2017,
CHICAGO – Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, announces that its new Arcadia series of outdoor kitchen cabinetry and refrigeration is now available for purchase.
Arcadia delivers expanded design aesthetics to outdoor kitchens with new color, texture and style options. The new line joins Kalamazoo’s current all-stainless-steel Signature Series, expanding the brand’s offerings for its most comprehensive outdoor cabinetry selection yet.
“We created Arcadia to be comfortably at home within the context of a variety of architectural styles, but the true inspiration was the contemporary take on modernist home design,” says Russ Faulk, chief designer and head of product for Kalamazoo. “Outdoor kitchen design is constantly evolving, and I hope Arcadia is viewed as a contribution to this evolution.”

The Arcadia series is defined by the primary horizontal lines created by the four-board design that runs across each cabinet face. These lines are a constant theme, running across doors, drawers and even refrigeration, regardless of the cabinet function or features. A key detail of the distinctive Arcadia design is the brushed stainless-steel end cap that flanks the ends of each board, adding visual contrast.
Ipe wood is one of the densest and most durable hardwoods, making it well-suited for outdoor kitchens. Arcadia’s ipe is also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as it adheres to environmental sustainability guidelines.
Arcadia joins Kalamazoo’s current all-stainless-steel Signature series that features weather-tight engineering. Each series composes a complete, modular outdoor kitchen system in conjunction with Kalamazoo cooking products, which include grills, pizza ovens, cooktops, a smoker cabinet and ventilation hoods.
“We have a distinct heritage of innovation, pushing back the boundaries of design and performance for outdoor kitchens,” Faulk says. “Arcadia is the latest example of our ongoing dedication to design quality. With this new series, and with the array of finish options, we are offering clients more choices than ever before. Our industry-leading designs, high-quality materials and sophisticated aesthetics work together harmoniously to form the ultimate outdoor kitchen.”
Arcadia includes a range of size options to meet the unique needs for each home. Cabinetry is available in widths of 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 30 and 36 inches. Refrigeration is available in widths of 15 and 24 inches. Options include pull-out waste and recycling bins, adjustable full-extension shelves and matching base cabinets designed specifically for mounting our outdoor cooktops. Additional modular components to integrate grills and other appliances complete the 30-inch-deep outdoor kitchen design system.
All Kalamazoo cabinets are available in the client’s choice of either durable 304 stainless steel or marine-grade (316L) stainless steel for enhanced corrosion-resistant properties.
