Wow! What an excellent market we had at KBIS in Orlando last week. I’d like to thank everyone who was able to stop by and say Hello. It is our customers which make the Company, and we were exceptionally busy during the three show days welcoming many new and familiar faces. Thank you.
For those unable to attend, we introduced a number of new collections along with a number of new and notable features. For 2018, we will introduce over 70 new cabinets, a new in-stock color of 3cm quartz (Summer Sand) and will begin a new relationship with the Italian Stone manufacturer, Santa Margarita. Our new Catalog and Price Guide are now available for download from our website, and the printed versions will begin shipping during late February. Newly introduced vanity cabinets, mirrors and countertops will also begin shipping late February and early March.
At the show, the most popular new countertop was our 3cm Carrara White Marble with a rectangular undermount sink. Customers described it as modern and striking. Also well received were our vanity cabinets with pre-installed electrical components which include two outlets and two USB ports. Customers also liked our new in-drawer organizers crafted from bamboo or hand-wrapped in faux shagreen. These organizers are included standard with select cabinets. At this KBIS we introduced several new finish colors and the most popular were Bright White and Silver Gray.
We also expanded several best-selling collections to include wheelchair accessible vanities. Aging-in-Place design is key to a rapidly growing segment of our society and we are working closely with builders and designers to design these options which allow customers to remain in their homes as long as possible. We believe this added functionality will enhance the lives of our clients with specific ADA requirements and their caregivers.
It was a remarkable show for James Martin Vanities and we hope to see you next year in Las Vegas for KBIS 2019.
