Design and Construction Week: 2014 Recap

February 13, 2014

Every year our industry convenes for the National Kitchen & Bath Industry Show where manufacturers show off their latest and greatest to designers, contractors, media and thousands of other attendees. This year, KBIS partnered with the International Builder Show in Las Vegas and it was a huge success. With more than 750,000 attendees covering 440,000 square feet of exhibit space, we were excited to feel the buzz and excitement from the industry and thought we’d share a few favorite finds straight from the show floor:

Kohler had a gorgeous booth and a ton of new product launches; you can see them all here. We loved the new Awaken Collection that features water-conserving technology and single-function shower heads for an intensified spray.

Italian manufacture Fhiaba launched a new integrated refrigerator line. The company is known for amazing quality products and features, including 3 door shelves, LED lighting and anti-bacterial stainless steel interior.

The Viking booth was packed with over 50 new product launches, so it was hard to get a goo photo! Our favorite new Viking product is the Professional French Door Electric Oven, which features side swing doors. We would probably select a more neutral color, but we loved the doors!


Amerock launched new products that simplifies selecting cabinet hardware for consumers and professional designers . The names of these eight new families in the AmerockNOW program—#BiCoastal, #NortheastHome, #Heartland, #LondonUndone, #Lodge, #PhoenixRising, #LAExperience, and #CityBeat— connect with consumers who are looking for a hardware style that resonates with their own home décor.

True – the wine refrigeration company – launched a new LED lighting system into their products that incorporates 14 color choices. We loved seeing these products, as we prepare to also launch an appliance featuring integrated colored LED lighting this month!
