welcome to vegasFirst KBIS, first visit to Vegas

Upon my return from KBIS a month ago, I hit the ground running on 4 projects underway & have only just now come up for air.

Confession #1: Vegas has never been on my list of places I want to see before I die. However, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I thoroughly enjoyed the low humidity & sunshine it served up in mass quantities.  Just gorgeous, & reminded me of my Bay area days from 1996 – 2001.

Confession #2: KBIS has hovered mid-list on conferences I’ve wanted to attend for awhile.  Hey, at least it was *on* the list.  I won’t tell you what other weird things are on it, lest I scare you away. LOL

Highlights

Ann Sacks / Kohler: as always some great textured tile collections with organic earthy elements, both in color and shape.

My favorite display wall in the Ann Sacks booth was their new Clodagh Core ceramic tile line. The image on the right is a close up of the convex shaped small mosaic. There are some wonderful asymmetric tiles that can be mixed & matched for really interesting patterns. I also really love the color options for the Clodagh Core tiles.

I also visited:

  • New Ravenna tile – really love their narrow Tatami tile options!
  • Native Trails – wanted to see some kitchen sinks there, but they had mostly bath lavs (still, beautifully done)
  • ACO Quartz linear drains – love linear drains! (Thanks to Arne & Nick for tracking down the ACO booth for me!)
  • Toto – loved their Luminust Vessel series, and these sinks, some of which were not on display:

There was definitely more than one blog post’s worth of products & ideas there, stay tuned for more!
