IBS 2019 – B.L. Rieke’s Top Picks
B.L. Rieke's Top Picks from the International Builders' Show (IBS) 2019
Last month, Bruce and Toni Rieke of B.L. Custom Homes both had a great (yet surprisingly snowy) time at the International Builders' Show (IBS) 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its biggest turnout in a decade, the three-day-long IBS 2019 featured thousands of vendors from different sectors of the home building industry and drew a crowd of more than 100,000 attendees. Though there was so much to see in so little time, Bruce and Toni were still able to find an incredible array of new, amazing home products that may make their way into a future B.L. Rieke home.
Here are five of Bruce and Toni's top picks from the event this year:
These gorgeous, top-of-the-line kitchen appliances by Dacor are chic, unique, and cutting-edge. We especially love the understated ingenuity of the Heritage WineStation and the infinite customization options of the Modernist Refrigerator!
Translucent, Backlit Countertops by Cambria
One of our all-time favorite countertop suppliers, Cambria demonstrated the design versatility and visual impact of their translucent top designs—the earthy and dignified Berwyn and the striking and contemporary Bentley—with a waterfall style paired with dramatic back-lighting. They definitely made a statement at their IBS 2019 booth!
Kohler's new Konnect series is both ground-breaking and intuitive with plenty of versatile and functional applications in a modern bathroom setting. In addition to a touchscreen, the Konnect system has built-in voice control and and myriad of customizable, "smart" functions that control a bathroom's lighting, sound, color effects, and water features.
New Door Hardware Collections by Emtek
Another B.L. Rieke favorite supplier, Emtek unveiled multiple new hardware collections that immediately caught the team's eye at IBS 2019, including the Lumiere, Sorrento, Urban Modern styles. Some of these hardware styles may even make their way into future B.L. Rieke homes!
New Faucet Finishes and Styles by Brizo
Brizo's newest faucet designs aim to make an elegant, yet dramatic, statement! While we haven't yet seen their brushed copper and matte black duo-finish faucet styles unveiled online, the team is just as enthralled with their new, modern-industrial SmartTouch Litze faucets.
