Every year I attend KBIS, the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, which is the largest show in the US for our industry. This year was the largest and most exciting show in over 5 years – check out some of the great new products I found!
The most impressive booth at the show was from Kohler, which was no surprise. Every year they have an incredible booth was great new products and creative entertainment. This year they more than doubled the size of their booth, and featured “shops” within their booth to feature product categories and brands such as Ann Sacks, Kallista and Robern. Kallista launched many new products, including a new faucet line called Per Se. The soft modern design is sure to be a hit.
Kohler introduced their biggest product launch in years – the Tailored Vanity line. This beautiful new collection includes 5 styles, each available in an array of finishes and configurations.
Another exciting product was the expansion of the Bertch bathroom vanity line. Bertch added a new color, Graphite, as well as a new door style called Northbrook. The new traditional door style is clean and simple, and is sure to be a success. They also added some accessories to their line, and expanded their wall-hung linea line to include solid wood doors.
Brizo had a great booth this year, displaying some new faucet lines that will be launching this summer. My favorite is the new Sotria faucet. This new contemporary faucet will be available with a standard spout as well as an open channel spout pictured here.
The only disappoint was the lack of presence from many of our vendors, such as Franke, Grohe, Hansgrohe and Newport Brass. Hopefully they will see how successful it was, and will attend next year.
