Salon & Spa Grand Prize Winner

Sunkissed Salon – San Jose, CA

“In 2016, I purchased my first commercial unit. It was a fresh built with nothing inside. An empty shell with only foundations. I had to build everything from ground up. I’ve always loved the New York architectures & style. So I decided to bring New York into my salon. I added tall brick walls, mid century furniture, & of course all Takara Belmont pieces.”

Barber Grand Prize Winner

Electric Barbering – Williams, AZ

“A barber cannot operate without a proper chair. And these Belmont chairs really complement the style I have in the shop. I love that they lay back and function as a solid shaving barber chair. They are not overly modern or cheap looking, nor do they resemble salon chairs. I’ve owned and worked with many cheaply made chairs and even though these are 60 years old they are far superior.”

Calen KoenigOwner at Electric Barbering
