BlogTour KBIS sponsor Wilsonart is a world leader in engineered surfaces. Whether you’re looking for laminate, quartz, or anything in between, Wilsonart has a beautiful, durable surface to fit your needs. This is the second time I have explored a Wilsonart exhibit at the KBIS Show. Once again I was amazed by their latest engineered surfaces which always feature a “Wow” element.
Wellborn Cabinet is a family owned (3 generations!) company offering finely crafted kitchen and bath cabinets designed to help you maximize your total home living space. As visitors to the KBIS show with BlogTour KBIS, we were among the first to see Wellborn’s latest offerings: Aspire Cabinetry, their new Full Access Frameless line.
Having lived all my life in New England with it’s historic and often austere homes, most of which feature an architectural style devoid of ostentatious detail, when I visited Europe I was overwhelmed with the architectural details of the homes & chateaus in Europe. So many beautiful elements! The mouldings and trims that were layered and gilded truly caught my designer’s eye. I’ve taken that influence and made it part of my own design style and encourage clients to embellish ceiling lines, door frame casings and baseboards with multiple architectural trims in their homes as well.
BlogTour KBIS sponsor Mohawk Flooring offers a comprehensive collection of flooring options for your home including hardwood, laminate, tile, vinyl, and rugs. For me, the crown jewel of the Mohawk Flooring offerings is their SmartStrand Silk Reserve carpet. While in Orlando last month with the Design Hounds of BlogTour KBIS, we had a special introduction to this amazing, dare I say magical, carpet.
As American Standard entered its fifteenth decade of business, they proudly launched their DXV by American Standard line. DXV fixtures and fittings for Bath and Kitchen are “inspired by historically significant designs, reinterpreting them in light of today’s aesthetic and performance demands”.
For the past few years, DXV has selected a small number of outstanding designers to serve on their Design Panel. Each year the designers are given a theme to design a vignette around with the finished product showcased at the KBIS show. In this year’s vignettes, designers paid homage to four iconic cities, marrying timeless products from DXV with equally stunning design choices and accessories.
Just last year, luxury appliance brand Thermador celebrated their 100 year anniversary(!), a true testament to their quality products and commitment to innovation. After seeing their latest offerings in person with BlogTour at the KBIS (Kitchen & Bath Industry Show) 2017 show in Orlando, I can tell you that Thermador is not resting on their laurels. They have introduced several new exceptional products this year at the KBIS 2017 show!
