Belkin

Belkin

The Boost Up wireless charging spot’s surface installation model provides up to 10 watts of fast, wireless power to all Qi wireless-charging-enabled devices, including iPhones and Samsung, Sony, and LG devices. The station is Qi-certified, universally compatible, and charges each device at the fastest possible speeds. It mounts to any table or counter surface through a standard 80mm grommet hole.

Built for commercial use, the charging spot is liquid and dust-resistant, resists tampering and movement once installed, and incorporates a cable management system to keep pathways clear. belkin.com

CalSpas

CalSpas

The Swim Pro F-1325 Fitness Swim Spa functions as both a resistance swimming training system and a place to rest and relax. Bottom-mounted jets create a resistance current along the length of the tub, which may be adjusted to match the swimmer’s speed and ability. The tub body incorporates a set of fitness anchors and tether anchors, as well as a floor-mounted swim lane marker. The tub seats up to 11 people on bench-style seating, and incorporates 23 stainless-steel, candy cane-style jets placed to target users’ pressure points. The tub’s heating system is powered by a 5.5kW titanium heater. calspas.com

Eldorado Stone

Eldorado Stone

Eldorado Stone’s Ledgecut33 veneer, shown here with the Birch color palette, is formed from rough-hewn stone pieces in three lengths—12, 18, and 23 inches—stacked in rows 3 inches high. According to the maker, the pieces are designed for dry-stack installation and are easy to handle, cut, and install. The veneer is also available in Ocean Floor, Golden Oak, sage, and Beach Pebble color palettes. eldoradostone.com

Emser Tile

Emser Tile

The KB Home ProjeKt’s master bath features Emser Tile’s Venetian Pebble tiles in Medici flat on the shower floor, in the dry area, and under the freestanding tub. The tiles are available on 12x12 interlocking mesh, and provide a traditional, historic look for interior spaces, according to the manufacturer. Many of the home’s rooms, including the entry, kitchen, great room, and hallways, also feature Emser’s Hangar glazed porcelain tiles in Ash. These large format tiles feature a concrete, linear pattern that delivers a modern look. emser.com

Generation Lighting

Generation Lighting

The KB Home ProjeKt includes three Generation and Tech Lighting fixtures. Generation’s Finnegan island chandelier, shown above, is a seven-light fixture inspired by European lanterns, which combines a geometric silhouette with two contrasting finishes, New World bronze and burnished brass.

Tech Lighting’s Harper glass pendant is a two-head light threaded through a ribbed glass bulb, handcrafted by Polish artisans. Outside, Tech Lighting’s Turbo outdoor wall sconce features a marine-grade powder coat and UV-stabilized, impact-resistant acrylic lensing for weather resistance. It is wet-listed and IP65 rated for dust and water resistance. visualcomfortgroup.com

Hunter Douglas

Hunter Douglas

Duette honeycomb shades with LightLock utilize a U-shaped side channel system and black ridged interior to block and absorb exterior light, preventing it from entering the room. This not only provides 100% total darkness when desired, but serves as an extra layer of insulation to control the home’s heat and lower energy bills. A built-in motorization system allows homeowners to control the shades’ movement via Hunter Douglas’ PowerView smart device app or voice command through Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. The KB Home ProjeKt uses Batiste Bamboo fabric shades in Fresco. hunterdouglas.com

Resource Furniture

Resource Furniture

A modern take on the Murphy bed, the Penelope 2 is a vertical-opening, queen-sized wall bed with an integrated writing desk. Designed and made in Italy, the transforming piece uses a mechanism to keep the desk level as it opens. According to the manufacturer, there is no need to remove objects from the desk surface due to it pivoting downward to set horizontally beneath the bed. The wall is available in a wide variety of finishes. resourcefurniture.com

Shaw Floors

Shaw Floors used an Anderson Tuftex hardwood called Mystique for the upper floor of the KB Home ProjeKt. The collection incorporates a contemporary palette of warm and cool hues with a chalk paint visual. The distinctly elegant maple grain shows through with contrasting high and low lights creating movement throughout the flooring. The extremely long planks, with 5-inch widths and ½-inch thickness, add to the overall vision of this statement floor. Mystique comes in five shades, including Eclipse (used in the KB Home), Shadow, Fog, Nightfall, and Starlight. shawbuilderflooring.com

Sherwin-Williams

Sherwin-Williams’ Emerald interior acrylic latex paint is a paint and primer in one. With advanced stain-blocking technology, Emerald prevents stains from penetrating and offers resistance to water streaking and spotting, according to the manufacturer. Emerald is available in four sheens, including matte, satin, semi-gloss, and flat. The flat finish hides minor drywall imperfections, while providing the same washability, durability, and burnish resistance as the other sheens. Matte and satin finishes are available in a high-hiding accent base, formulated to boost hiding power and deliver truer colors in fewer coats. sherwin-williams.com

Timberlake Cabinetry

Timberlake

Timberlake’s Sonoma cabinets boast a sleek, contemporary interpretation of the Shaker design with crisp edges and flat surfaces. Sonoma doors are full overlay and offered in veneer or mortise-and-tenon construction. Other product features include 21-inch-deep drawers, side-mounted glides, adjustable, hidden hinges, and ¾-inch-thick wall and base shelving. In the KB Home ProjeKt, the straight-line cabinetry was installed in the service room on the first floor. It is available in maple, cherry, and painted finishes, with painted doors featuring engineered-wood center panels for a superior finish. timberlake.com

Whirlpool

Whirlpool

Users can connect to the 6.4-cubic-foot Smart Combination Wall Oven with Microwave Convection via smartphone. With Scan-to-Cook Technology and the Yummly Guided Cooking feature, homeowners can either scan a food barcode or browse the step-by-step video tutorials in the Yummly app to send recommended cooking instructions straight to the oven. The product can be controlled by an all-new touchscreen, which learns and adapts to each owner’s needs, or by voice control with a smart-voice assistant. Additional features include a digital meat thermometer, remote start, party mode, rapid preheat, and self-close door. whirlpool.com
