“Dom” from the Latin word “domus” means “home,” and to celebrate the remodeled DOM Interiors space at Minneapolis’s International Market Square, we gathered for an evening filled with festive cocktails, delectable fare and good company.

Chef Terry John Zilla of johnjeanjuan helped make the night a success with his tasteful selections, both savory and sweet. Zilla is known for his stunning, one-of-a-kind desserts. Every bite is divine and keeps you coming back for more. This special chef helped provide the feeling of home and homed in on (pun intended) what quality kitchens are all about: irresistible food.

Debuting in 1999, DOM originally specialized in kitchens and appliances. Since then, the company has evolved from a concentrated hub into a fast-growing network across North America. DOM is committed to ecological well-being and the environment — without aesthetic compromise — through great design. In recent years, the company has added select furniture lines. DOM now represents such celebrated brands as Cesar, Rimadesio, Tacchini, Valcucine and more. The Minneapolis showroom boasts gorgeous displays of custom kitchens, bathrooms and closets.

The event featured specially crafted Italian cocktails by A Proper Pour. Escalate your pizza and pasta nights with these iconic libations.
