KBIS 2013 - Part 2


My second day of KBIS can be summed up by one booth…. KOHLER!  Kohler put together one of the most innovative and interactive booths of the show.  Here are some of the highlights:  


Kohler's Abrazo freestanding bath tub 


Kallista's Vir Stil by Laura Kirar EXPOSED SHOWER SET


Kohler's Briolette Glass bathroom sink with Margaux faucet reminds me of a diamond!  Perfect for adding a touch of luxury to any powder room.


Kohler's Caravan Collection Nepal Caxton Bathroom sink with Loure tall widespread bathroom sink faucet

This sink features a beautiful South Asian inspired design around the bowl. Very charming and elegant!


Kohler's Purist Bridge wall-mount kitchen sink faucet in vibrant polished nickel  


Next we visited the Ann Sacks tile section. I was instantly drawn to these geometric tiles!  Who could resist the beauty? I could not.. My husband literally had to drag me out of this section.


This display of Ann Sack's tile and Kallista products showcases a current trend in finishes.  * Blue green tones mixed with weathered wood finishes and light creamy countertops*


I can definitely see myself using this Ann Sacks versailles mesh mirrored tile in a few upcoming projects. It certainly has that old New Orleans feel!                                                  

                     
Mick De Giulio's gorgeous Bacifiore collection for Kallista is absolutely stunning.  It is made of a polished and distressed stainless steel and handcrafted by Mick's very own artisans.  BEAUTIFUL!

After the Kohler booth, we checked out what we missed from the first day.


The best thing in the Hafele booth were these sliding cabinet doors!  Technology for cabinet doors has come such a long way in the past few years.



Blum's lift door hardware is used by several of my cabinet manufacturers. Finally, lift doors are gaining popularity in the South. This new technology by Blum allows you to press a button to open and close the door! My friend Melissa, modeled this technology for my husband and the conversation is about convincing me to try out for HGTV. They finally talked me into it after a few bribes and drinks from the Caesarstone booth.

KBIS 2013 was an amazing experience. Innovative concepts, trusted vendors, and the electric New Orleans atmosphere. Who could ask for better?  However, I must be honest about one thing  that I noticed. There were very few cabinet manufacturers there.  I did not take a whole lot of kitchen display pictures because I simply was not inspired by the displays that were set up.  All in all, KBIS was a blast!!!
