Ok, so I am home for a brief few minutes then off to High Point Furniture market at 5am in the morning!I hope I can be granted a few extra days to write my blog post on the top 10 “finds” of KBIS 2010! Several of my fellow bloggers were in attendance as well such as  Andie Day, Paul Anater from Kitchen and Residential Design, Sarah Lloyd from Clarity K , Susan Serra from the kitchen designer, Ann Porter from KitchAnnStyle and Carmen from The Decorating Diva!  Make sure you stop by their blogs to get any updates as well!

I can say I was underwhelmed in general with some of the “No Show” vendors missing. But a few other  vendors had awesome booths and new products displayed  such as BRIZO and Silestone and new launches of product from Dal tile too! Just so disappointed to not see heavy hitting manufacturers like Subzero and Wolf.

On a exciting note:I was thrilled to have the opportunity to share the stage with fashion designer Jason Wu, Industrial designer, Judd Lord from BRIZO and Janice Costa from Kitchen and Bath News. Brizo sponsored a media event where our panel discussed various topics about design and fashion. In case you were wondering, no one asked me any questions about fashion and I made Jason promise to not use me as a fashion disaster while on stage and being a gentleman, he did not.

Also had the opportunity to visit the folks from Dupont who manufacture Zodiaq and Corian solid surfaces. Jonathan Adler, the celebrated potter and personality gave a talk that was quite entertaining. The venue was at the Adler Planetarium and my buddy blogger Paul Anater was kind enough to include me on his invite. Was fun evening!

Stay tuned for lots of great blog posts from my trips to KBIS and High Point!
