Design and Construction Week 2016

We’re back from another successful Design and Construction Week in Las Vegas and recapped some of our favorite trends and new products. Did you attend the show? We’d love to hear your favorite finds!

Color: Color in the kitchen is not going away, and this year, manufactures introduced softer and pastel colors to their product line-up. From La Cornue’s pink range to the pastel refrigerators by Smeg and Blue Ombre Wall by Thermador, these products are sure to be a hit with designers looking to make a colorful splash in the kitchen.

Black and Mixed Metallics: In addition to the Springy hues, there were also a lot of new products introduced in brushed metallic and one of our favorite colors of the season – Black! Delta’s masculine black faucet and the brass and copper faucets and shower head by Brizo and Oak Hill (DXV) were a few of our favorites.

Texture – We were very impressed by the gorgeous patterns and textured tiles that were at the show this year. Dekton introduced their new color collection and Ann Saks showcased the Kelly Wearstler textured tiles. The Nebbia by Caesarstone resembles a geode-design and will hopefully make its debut in our Showroom!

A Modern Home for Young Hollywood

The hit show Glee is one of our guilty pleasures… fun music, dancing, high school drama and a hilarious cast. And, we just discovered from a recent feature in Dwell, that actress Jayma Mays (who plays Emma, the redheaded teacher) is also a fan of our fans! Jayma and her husband, Adam Campbell, have a Roma Island hood in their gorgeous modern Los Angeles home. You can check out the entire house tour here.

“The home fixture with the dirtiest job in the kitchen is cleaning up its image” -WSJ


(WSJ Print Edition:  June 7, 2013, on page M5)

We hope everyone had a great weekend!

It’s always exciting to see our products in print; however, we were especially thrilled to be included in a Wall Street Journal article last week on Range Hoods. We worked with the editor for a few weeks on pulling the info together and were very pleased with the final editorial feature! This is great coverage for Zephyr and the industry as a whole – bringing the range hood back to the forefront of kitchen design and being a part of the conversation about kitchen appliances that are challenging the status quo.

You can check out the entire article here.

Fun Fact: More than 2.3 million people read the print edition of The Wall Street Journal every morning!
