New Blue Hue
We weren't allowed to take pictures of Cambria's four prototype patterns to be launched later in 2015, but this new (and currently available) colorway, Montgomery, caught our eye. Featuring cream, gray, and aqua tones, Cambria says it developed Montgomery after feedback from designers pointed toward a need for more blue-toned options. cambriausa.com.
Cabinetry in Motion
These self-propelled cabinets from Elmwood Fine Custom Cabinetry open and close at a touch to the unit’s corner, with three doors that flip up to reveal interior shelving. The company’s assortment of modern self-propelled cabinet solutions ranges from automatic-closing lazy Susans to large modular office units. Various high-gloss and matte finishes are available to match any décor. elmwoodkitchens.com.
Say goodbye to those cloth snakes you've put next to doors to block the draft. Endura's Z-Articulating Cap Sill adjusts to create an air-stopping seal regardless of how the door was hung or how it's shifted over time. enduraproducts.com.
What's Not to Louver?
Constructed of extruded aluminum, the Equinox Louvered Roof Systems help protect outdoor living spaces from the elements when closed, and provides ventilation and just the right amount of sunlight when open. Each louver interlocks with the other, so rain is deflected to gutters at the perimeter of the roof. Open and close the system with a handy remote control. equinoxroof.com.
Master in the Kitchen
Rinse every corner of your sink with Franke’s new Masterchef faucet, which features a 360-degree swivel spout to ensure no spot is unreachable. The pull-down faucet also includes toggle spray functionality. With a high arch design, the faucet is also designed as a statement piece and comes in polished chrome and satin nickel finishes. hbgcolumns.com.
Don't Forget to Stretch
Huber Engineered Woods introduced new Stretch Tape as part of its Zip System, helping alleviate the tedium of snipping flashing tape to fit corners and wall protrusions. The super-strong tape stretches around rough openings, and adheres to both the material being flashed and to itself, sealing out moisture. One 75-foot roll can flash more than 20 windows, and works with or without other Zip System components. huberwood.com
Right on Track
Real Carriage Door and Hardware’s solid wood sliding barn doors, available in a variety of patterns and colors, now offer an additional detail to make a bold statement: new colored tracks and hardware. The red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple finishes are powder-coated onto the steel hardware, for a long-lasting pop of color. realcarriagedoors.com
Outdoor Storage Solution
Trex unveiled a collection of outdoor storage cabinets made under license by NatureKast Products. The units can be insulated to serve as coolers; they also can serve as trash bins, hampers, and storage cabinets. They typically come in a teak color but can be covered in the same five colors as the Trex Transcend line's tropical finishes. trexoutdoorstorage.com
