James Bruyn joined Hudson Valley Kitchen Design Center in March of 2011 and purchased the company in 2017. As the owner and Lead Designer at HVKDC, he strives to be ahead of the design curve. He is knowledgeable on all of the unfolding changes in the cabinetry and countertop industries, as well as staying up to date with the plumbing, lighting, and appliance industries. As a lifetime resident of the Hudson Valley, most of his work is in this area, however he has worked on projects from Jamestown, RI to Lake George, and as far south as Miami. While his personal style is more traditional, his projects range from Old World to Uber Modern.
James is an avid environmentalist and brings his passion for green design and sustainability to all his projects when possible. He is a member of the NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) and the USBGC (United States Green Building Council). James is a CLIPP (Certified Living in Place Professional) and believes that beautiful design can be made accessible for all individuals. Additionally, he has served as an elected official on the Board of Commissioners for the Cuddebackville Fire District and currently volunteers with We Are Newburgh. In his spare time, James enjoys cycling, trying new cocktails, and exploring the area.
