Highlights from KBIS 2016

February 18, 2016

The annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) is like Christmas morning – the grand poobah of design shows and an event that we look forward to all year. The 2016 KBIS was held in Vegas, and the glitz and glamour of that famous city definitely found its way into the show floor at the convention center where a spectacular array of the latest kitchen and bath innovations were on display. Here are just a few of the highlights that particularly caught our eye.

Isenberg-Cascade-021816The amazing in-wall Cascade Flow tub filler/showerhead from Isenberg features a sleek, modern design that creates a flat arc of flowing water that is mesmerizing to watch and listen to, and its flush-to-the-wall.  As its name implies, this Italian-made beauty can serve a dual function.

Lenova-Vanity-021816Lenova had on display a new line of vanities, with eight different styles and a wide range of finish options to choose from. Constructed of eco-sensitive zero emissions solid hardwood, the vanities are CARB certified and finished with five layers of premium, eco-friendly paint. They also come with many thoughtful touches, pre-drilled tops and a high-quality Lenova square undermount porcelain sink.

Huntington-Brass-021816Huntington Brass impressed KBIS crowds with their sleek Euro Collection. People loved the novel idea of being able to remove the faucet handles and replace them with coordinating buttons for a custom look at a very reasonable price. Finished in polished chrome, the collection includes a wide-spread lavatory faucet, vessel filler, shower head and Roman tub filler.

QuickDrain-WallDrain-021816QuickDrain was on the scene at KBIS 2016 with a mobile booth that attracted some serious attention. Their award-winning WallDrain system is rocking the plumbing world by changing the way water is removed from wet areas.  The system allows for the most seamless design possible by installing the drain in the wall itself and sloping the shower floor to one subtle channel.

Atlas-Campaign-021816There’s nothing like the perfect hardware to finish off a well-designed bathroom or kitchen. Atlas Homewares was front and center in Vegas with a fun new collection with a military inspiration. Known as the Campaign Collection, this industrial look is reminiscent of classic army trunks and offers a fun mix-and-match assemblage that allows users to create their own unique look.

ZEN-Designs-Garage-Pull-021816And speaking of exotic, Zen Design was displaying some very cool collections. They pulled out all the stops for fashionable hardware, even showing leather and laced pulls. Their Garage Collection particularly caught our eye with its mix of materials and colorful hues of red, teal and brown. We love that urban-chic style that manages to be grungy and upscale at the same time.

Lasertron-021816Lasertron Direct used KBIS 2016 to showcase their sustainable line of stainless steel backsplashes, cabinets and countertops. These are so beautiful! The craftsmanship here is impeccable, and the finished products are amazingly strong and durable. They even resist fingerprints!

DuVerre-Argyle-021816Du Verre Hardware made an appearance at Northern Contour’s booth to provide the eye-catching hardware for their bathroom vanities. We particularly love Du Verre’s Argyle Collection, created by owner and designer Gina Lubin.

As you can see, KBIS 2016 was a pretty amazing show. The exhibitors there represented the best of the kitchen and bath industry when it comes to innovation, quality and design aesthetics. We are already looking forward to next year’s show when KBIS returns to Orlando. See you at the show!
