Whether you’re designing for indoors or out, these new products from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers will definitely add an edge to any residential project.
The annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and International Builders’ Show (IBS) wrapped up last week in Las Vegas, bringing a bevy of high-tech, high-design products before designers’ eyes.
