BlogTour KBIS enjoyed a fun-filled morning with BLANCO and Top Knobs and had the opportunity to explore newly released collections that were buzzworthy to say the least. BLANCO featured their brand new and stunning IKON apron sink and fellow sponsor and booth mate Top Knobs displayed their wide array of hardware collections that caused serious knob and pull envy.
BLANCO Director of Marketing Christy Emens and her team welcomed bloggers to their KBIS 2016 booth and once again wowed the groups with their new IKON apron sink and the newest addition to BLANCO’s faucet collection, Artona.
It’s easy to see why the new IKON apron sink is a showstopper and will certainly make this sink the centerpiece of the kitchen.The sleek new design is made from BLANCO’s Silgranit that is easy to clean and is completely scratch-resistant making the front apron sink extremely durable. The new sink is available in three stylish colors including Anthracite, White and Cafe Brown.
The ARTONA faucet includes a semi-hidden, pull down spray head and is unique in that it is water saving, utilizing a standard 2.2 or 1.5 GPM flow rate. The soft curved faucet is available in any SILGRANIT sink color for perfect coordination.
What else do you need in a well appointed kitchen? Accessories! BLANCO introduced BlogTour KBIS to their latest sink accessory, the Floating Grid. The accessory sits midway, about 4-5″ from the bottom of the BLANCO IKON or PRECIS sink creating an additional sink level to help support heavy kitchen items or for washing of foods. We love that it adds an additional work surface that is there when needed and easily stowed when not.
Our next stop was with BlogTour KBIS sponsor Top Knobs. Needless to say it was easy to capture the attention of a group of designers with a wide display of jewelry for the cabinets. President at Top Knobs, Warren Ramsland guided bloggers through each of their versatile and stunning collections.
One of Top Knob’s latest collections that caught our eye was the Aspen II Collection.The collection is hand-cast from 90% recycled bronze and hand-finished creating a unique and stylish design. The collection has 34 products available in three plated finishes including Polished Chrome, Polished Nicked and Brushed Satin Nickel. We love the organic look and generous sizing of the of the pulls in particular.
Easily our favorite thing about Top Knobs is the versatility in their hardware collections. There is something for everyone! Ranging from modern, to traditional looks, Top Knobs has hardware to accommodate any style of cabinetry. Top Knobs goes glam with their new Crystal Knobs, a recent addition to the Chateau Collection. The clear crystal is inlaid into the top of an emerald faceted body for an elegant and jewel-like look. The new design is inspired by jewelry, making it the must have accessory for cabinets. Top Knobs is a crowd favorite when it comes to cabinetry hardware with a wide range of looks that are hand crafted for unsurpassed quality.
