8 Highlights From KBIS 2018

January 10, 2018

At the annual Kitchen & Bath Industry Show taking place through January 11th in Orlando, Florida, the Maximalism trend (with a very capital M) meets clean-lined Modernism. From affordable terrazzo-look porcelain tiles to high-octane hues on professional ranges, we can’t help but be bowled away by the eye-popping designs on display.

 

Kallista

Spare and architectural, look out for the Grid 3D-printed faucet from the Kohler-affiliated brand when it launches in summer 2018. “Intrigued by the fundamentals of the De Stijl movement and how it embraced the de-massing of a design has always sparked my imagination,” explains Kallista’s Design Studio manager Bill McKeone.

Grid by Kallista.

Bertazzoni

The Italian manufacturer engineers a new Professional series of ranges in 30”, 36” and 48” widths with clean lines and a stylish yet functional temperature gauge inspired by chronograph watch dials. Automobile-grade finishes come in vibrant orange, red, and yellow as well as classic black and white.

Professional series by Bertazzoni.

Ann Sacks

LA-based designer Kelly Wearstler returns with her fourth collection for the American-based tile company, a long-standing provider of now-trending encaustic tile. Dubbed Gem, the collection includes Elope, a swirling pattern combining two colorways; Swell, an organic yet graphic pattern of curved lines; and Evoke, a marbled pattern adorned with hand-applied squiggles.

Evoke by Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks.

Compac

A sculptural form in engineered quartz reads high-contrast in colorways Unique Marquina and Unique Calacatta. The piece was conceived as a modernist hammam, or Turkish bath, by Valencia-based GG Architects

Hammam by Compac.

Dekton by Cosentino

Designer Daniel Germani‘s DeKauri credenza reimagines the bathroom sink by tucking it away inside an elegant credenza made in collaboration with Italian furniture maker Riva 1920. The Dekton washbasinplays off 40,000-year-old Kauri wood from New Zealand. Thin-profile brass lighting by New York-based Juniper Design outfits the interior. “DeKauri is a modern-day heirloom,” says the designer.

Sicis

Marble, with an edge. Sicis turns up the volume on stone standbys with Electric Marble, its fuschia, turquoise, gold, or silver veining applied to their thin-profile Vetrite material.

Artistic Tile

Get the coveted look of terrazzo without the high price tag and endless maintenance with the maker’s durable Pavimento porcelain tile in a pleasingly large 32” square format.

Fantini

The Italian maker introduces three new finishes—street-smart Gun Metal, rosy Matte Copper, and soft British Gold, the later based on the historic hue of the mined material found in England.

Kiawah Island, South Carolina

Charleston is consistently ranked among the best cites in the U.S., so it should come as no surprise that Kiawah Island—where Charlestonians go in the summer—is one of the country’s most gorgeous islands. With ten miles of pristine beaches, legendary golf courses at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, and nature trails among the marshes, it’s the perfect place for a family vacation or romantic getaway.

Shelter Island, New York

When New Yorkers need to escape the concrete jungle, this island between the Hamptons and Long Island’s North Fork is one of the places they go. Buzzing with visitors in summer, it’s a blissfully unpretentious alternative to the Hamptons with plenty of rural charm. Find a dash of New York sophistication at Sunset Beach, a twenty-room hotel by André Balazs.

Lanai, Hawaii

Pristine beaches, winding roads clinging to cliffs over the Pacific, volcanoes, and lush tropical landscapes—Hawaii’s islands draw vacationers from all over the U.S. As one of the smaller, more under-the-radar isles, Lanai boasts blissfully crowd-free beaches, dramatic cliffs, and luxe accommodations like the recently renovated Four Seasons Lanai.

Cumberland Island, Georgia

Georgia’s largest barrier island is an 18-mile stretch of undeveloped beaches and marshes teeming with wildlife, including shrimp, sea turtles, and alligators, not to mention the horses that roam the land. Protected by the National Park Service, the island’s natural beauty has been preserved. Pitch a tent or book a room at the comfortable Greyfield Inn.

Mackinac Island, Michigan

We wouldn’t blame you for mistaking Mackinac Island for the Caribbean—the water is the same vibrant shade of turquoise. This car-free stretch of land in Lake Huron feels like a blast from the past thanks to enchanting properties like Mission Point and the Grand Hotel, which have been welcoming guests for over a hundred years.

Gasparilla Island, Florida

The Florida Keys may be more famous, but that just means this barrier island off the Gulf Coast remains a secret hideaway for insiders. It’s been a low-key luxury vacation spot since J. P. Morgan and the Vanderbilts started visiting in the pre-Prohibition days. Check into the Gasparilla Inn for a taste of that Jazz Age life.

Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts

This idyllic New England enclave is the preferred vacation spot of preppy Bostonians and of presidential families including the Kennedys, the Clintons, and the Obamas. You’ll find plenty of historic charm, scenic lighthouses, beautiful beaches, and yachts. Rent a house like the locals do or stay at the funky new Summercamp by Lark Hotels.

Mount Desert Island, Maine

Thick pine forests, waves crashing against rocky cliffs, sandy beaches—this little island off the shores of Bar Harbor is the stuff summer-camp dreams are made of. Stay at the quaint Asticou Inn and spend your days hiking and swimming in Acadia National Park, whose carriage paths were commissioned by John D. Rockefeller.

Lummi Island, Washington

This little island in the Salish Sea off the coast of Washington state has become a pilgrimage site for foodies thanks to award-winning chef Blaine Wetzel’s must-try Pacific Northwest cuisine at the Willows Inn. Spend your days spotting orca whales and exploring the forests and coastline where Wetzel forages for ingredients that appear on your plate.
