The 2020 International Builders' Show (IBS) and Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) kicked off last Tuesday, with copious amounts of industry manufacturers proudly debuting their latest and greatest home products. Here is a roundup of products that were on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center and will be available in the market this year.

Kindred Outdoors & Surrounds
Boral North America introduced a new brand, Kindred Outdoors & Surrounds, a collection of outdoor kitchens and fireplaces, artisan fire bowls, and indoor fireplace surrounds. The outdoor living and fireplace products can be specified to feature any manufactured stone from Boral’s family of brands. The Soho Boutique Fireplace Surround (pictured) is suited for contemporary applications and features clean lines to evoke a sense of timeless luxury, according to the manufacturer.

Simpson Strong-Tie
The Avant Collection adds an array of new wood connectors and fasteners to Simpson Strong-Tie's Outdoor Accents line, designed for use with gazebos, pergolas, and other wooden outdoor living structures. The new connectors are available in a powder coat finish, and feature straight edges and exposed washer-and-fastener details.

Fibo System
Fibo Group introduced its 100% waterproof wall panel system for the kitchen and bath to the U.S. market. The panels, manufactured in Norway, offer an eco-friendly, durable, and cost-effective alternative to wall systems that guard against water, mildew, and moisture-related problems, according to the manufacturer. The product is available in numerous design styles, including black marble (pictured), and features an Aqualock click system to simplify installation and minimize joint lines. The panels can be mounted directly onto wood or steel studs, existing walls, or over ceramic tiles and do not require a water vapor barrier or waterproof membrane behind the product.

Cultured Stone
Cultured Stone introduced new color palettes for three of its popular profiles, including Carbon for its Handmade Brick profile, Arctic for its Hewn Stone profile, and Echo Ridge for its Sculpted Ashlar profile. Carbon Handmade Brick, with its light and dark gray color tones, utilizes contrasting grout lines to infuse spaces with added visual interest, according to the manufacturer. Arctic Hewn Stone, a crisp white color palette, highlights the profile’s rustic texture, while Echo Ridge Sculpted Ashlar, a blend of sun-blanched grays and burnished copper, accentuate the precise grout lines present in the profile.

Electric Mirror
The Savvy Home SmartMirror features a 22-inch smart interface directly integrated into the mirror's surface. The interface is compatible with any Android-based application or smart home device, and may either be activated manually or via integrated motion sensor. The mirror is available with or without integrated LED lighting, and may be customized to meet users' design preferences. Additional interface features include integrated speakers, a far-field microphone, and digital voice assistant compatibility.

Jenn-Air has reorganized its kitchen appliance collections into two main design expressions: RISE, a professional-style aesthetic with diamond-etched handles and bold geometric details, and NOIR, a modern, minimalist aesthetic defined by black glass fronts. Across both design collections, the 30-, 36-, and 48-inch Professional-Style Ranges feature flat-tine oven racks, true convection cooking, and remote control via the Jenn-Air app. Gas and dual-fuel options are available.

Eldorado Stone
Eldorado Stone introduced three bright color palettes to its European Ledge, Rough Cut, and Stacked Stone profiles. Sea Cliff (pictured), available in the European Ledge profile, attempts to create a fusion between old-world stonework and modern design. Koryak Ridge, available in the Stacked Stone profile, utilizes intricate detail to create the appearance of a precision hand-laid, dry-stack set, while Loire Valley, available in the RoughCut profile, mimics limestone.
