We’re back from a great trip to New York for the 2015 Architectural Digest Home Design Show. In addition to exhibiting and launching three new products at the show, we also held a Press Event and participated in The New York Times Kitchen Renovation Panel with our design partner, Fu-Tung Cheng. We’ve recapped some of our favorite finds from the show and wanted to share
Trend Spotting: Bold color, sustainable products, gorgeous lighting fixtures, texture, and innovative spins on mundane household furniture.
Trend Spotting: Manufacturers foray into new categories. Blue Star ventured into the refrigeration category, Alfresco launched an indoor line of ranges, and Hades introduced an all-in-one outdoor barbecue.
We also attended the DIFFA Event, which showcased striking tablescape designs by renowned designers and artists.
The New York Times Kitchen Renovation Panel
Topic: Updating a kitchen or bath with new surfaces, new fixtures and appliances, and fresh colorations can add functionality, aesthetic and market appeal, plus a sense of renewal that is reflected throughout an entire home. Elaine Louie, New York Times contributing writer, hosts an exciting discussion with Tim Schroeder of Duravit and interior designers Kati Curtis and Fu-Tung Cheng, who will showcase stunning examples of how they have pulled off numerous kitchen and bath renovations on both optimum and minimal budgets.
Fu-Tung Cheng was the highlight of the panel and gave the packed audience an overview of his work with concrete, 10-year partnership with Zephyr, and custom homes.
