Top Pics from the 2014 KBIS/IBS


We’re back from the 2014 IBS/KBIS/IWCE (International Builders’ Show/Kitchen and Bath Industry Show/International Window Coverings Expo) in Las Vegas.  By combining these shows, we were very pleased to see so many dealers and attendees this year.  Here are just a few of our favorite products and kitchen design ideas.

Freedom Induction Cooktop by Thermador and Benchmark FlexInduction Cooktop by Bosch 

Induction Cooktops from the 2014 KBIS

Brand new options for induction cooking with limitless options for the size and shape of your cooking vessels.  You no longer have to use a round pot the size of the designated circle on your cooking surface.  These cooktops give you the option to adjust the surface for your needs.  For example, you could use a griddle that could be evenly heated or divided into two separate zones.

New advances and application for LED lighting

LED Lighting from 2014 KBIS

LED Lighting has continued to advance with new design applications.  Interior cabinet lighting options have expanded to illuminate every dark corner in your home.  Beyond strips of light for undercabinet use, you can envision these same strips as decorative accent light all over your space.

QMotion – motorized drapery rod that is silent

This revolutionary new drapery rod changes everything we new about motorized window treatments.  The leading drapery ring of each panel rides along a groove which pulls the drapery open and closed as it rotates.  The motor and batteries are concealed inside the rod itself.  Plus, it is completely silent!  This is amazingly functional and beautiful!

Fun in Las Vegas We also had a lot of fun after the shows.  We attended a high energy performance of “Recycled Percussion”, complete with a random cookie break (YUM!).  We experienced the unique and elaborate characters at “Divas”.  We also toured the Bellagio’s Foyer with Chihuly Glass Ceiling and Courtyard with Chinese New Year theme garden.

Here is a sampling of the Fountains outside the Bellagio:

    Thanks Yvonne! We loved it too. We’d love to get our hands on one for the demo kitchen!

    So much better on the cook tops. I would like using a griddle and grill pan.
