Hoboken’s Battaglia’s on “Battle on the Block” Finale – May 29th

As Hoboken411 first told you nearly two months ago – Battaglia’s Home (1414 Willow Ave) in Hoboken will be featured prominently in HGTV’s “Battle on the Block” reality series season finale on May 29th at 10PM. The beginning and the ending sequences of the show were completely filmed in Battaglia’s and much of the merchandise in the homes was provide by Battaglia’s.

“The living rooms of three historic brownstones are the battle ground as Battle on the Block takes on Jersey City. With only three days to completely design, demolish and renovate their spaces, three families’ creative and construction abilities will be thoroughly tested. Long time residents, the Rivo family, take their design inspiration from Turkey and plan to turn their living room into a more adult friendly space. New homeowners, the Schapiros (using Battaglia’s furniture), have to unexpectedly rethink their contemporary design concept when construction reveals a moldy surprise beneath their walls. The Skinners’ (using Battaglia’s Furniture) design a cutting edge urban plan to expose the original brick walls, rip up their floor boards and knock through to the adjoining room is delayed by husband Travis’s overzealous use of a sledgehammer.

Battle On the Block, is a fun, character-driven home makeover show where three neighboring families compete against one another in an effort to design and build one new room from scratch, all in the span of a single weekend! Then they are judged by their neighbors! The winner not only gets $10,000 but also bragging rights in the neighborhood.

Genevieve Gorder, whose unmistakable enthusiasm and intimate approach to design have made her one of America’s favorite interior designers, is the star of the show. Finding inspiration and beauty in everyday life, Genevieve applies her soulful, eclectic and whimsical style to transform the interiors of homes around the world and on her HGTV series, Dear Genevieve. She also has been recognized for her design and television work, including multiple awards for interiors, products and branding, as well as accolades for her contributions on the Emmy-nominated series Trading Spaces.”
