Cool New Products Seen at ADDS 2017

by Lauren Busser and Rachel Lyon

We stopped by the Architectural Digest Design Show (ADDS) again this year, and we were introduced to some pretty amazing products! Some are available now while others will be rolled out for sale later in 2017, but they all bring something new to the table. Get a taste for these beautiful and innovative products right here—you might just find something you didn’t know was available and can’t wait to use in your own home!

A Build-It-Yourself Custom Cooktop
A Build-It-Yourself Custom Cooktop

Have you ever wished for the best of both worlds? Perhaps you want to cook with gas, electric, and induction technology? Well, now you can get it all! Jenn-Air® introduced modular cooktops at ADDS 2017 and we were excited by the possibilities—just imagine hand-picking the heating elements that you want and building the perfect cooktop for your needs. Maybe you want an electric griddle and a specialty induction wok surface, and can’t possibly part with a good, old-fashioned gas burner. Put together your dream cooktop to make the most of your cooking experience!

Totally Personalized Window Designs

We saw something the likes of which we’d never seen before at the show—a massive casement window with divided lites all askew. Rather than opt for a regular pattern, somebody decided to go with a truly unique design. Of course, this eye-catching piece of art was a custom job! Have you ever wanted to go above and beyond with your window design like this, or like the home pictured here? Marvin® Signature Services make it possible to craft one-of-a-kind windows to suit your style vision, whether that means shapes, lites, or sizes that aren’t usually available. Share your ideas and see what the creative engineering team can do!

Striking Kitchen Faucets with Contemporary Style
Striking Kitchen Faucets with Contemporary Style

Brizo® had a lot on display at their booth, including the Litze™ Kitchen Collection to be released later this year. The perfect fusion of clean contemporary lines with an artisanal touch, Litze™ personifies the marriage of shape and form. The simple bent tube spout is rendered in three distinct shapes to complement a variety of design aesthetics: arc, square, and angled. They fit in a variety of environments from minimalist, modern and more industrial inspired spaces. Litze™ also features Brizo’s® MagneDock® Technology and is available with optional SmartTouch® Technology!

Unbelievably Realistic "Wood" Pieces

The JM Lifestyles booth was a little deceiving. The main attraction was a dining room table with a pond-like aquarium, made from Woodform Concrete®. This material has realistic tones and textures that give the concrete an uncanny appearance of real wood without the costly maintenance. While the dining table drew plenty of onlookers, they also brought sinks and a tub, all of which were remarkably rustic. With incredible wood looks that don't deplete forests and over 40% recycled content, JM Lifestyles definitely earned ADDS’s 2017 Best in Sustainability award with these products!

Smart Locks with Classic, Enduring Looks
Smart Locks with Classic, Enduring Looks

Looking for WiFi-enabled home entry that doesn’t advertise itself? Most smart locks are easily identifiable with touchscreens and keypads, but the brand-new Baldwin Evolved™ handlesets appear to have simple lock and key operation. Available in 24 different models running from traditional to contemporary and in 18 finishes, you won’t have to accept limited style options, either. Use an app to open the door whether you’re at home or not and assign key codes for other people—it’s convenience today’s homeowners love! Baldwin also offers fobs so you don’t have to use your phone, and of course you can always use a regular key. It’s rare to get this much choice with a high-tech product, so get ready to find the best solution for your home!

Model: Baldwin Evolved™ Soho 3/4 Escutcheon Handleset in Satin Nickel | Available in May, 2017
Brilliant LED Mirrors in Multiple Shapes

Ronbow brought a lot to the show for us to consider—like the novel Amora vanity with its unique storage capabilities and some of the most chic designer sinks that we’ve ever seen from their Signature Series— but we were quickly drawn to the lighted mirrors. The pictures really can’t do them justice and you have to see to believe just how bright and clear they are. Perfect for the serious personal makeup artist or just somebody who would rather have focused illumination when they get ready, these mirrors offer extra functionality and turn on and off at the slightest touch. They’re a definite bathroom upgrade!

Customizable Fireplaces You Can Install Anywhere
Customizable Fireplaces You Can Install Anywhere

Want a fireplace but can’t decide the perfect medium? Torn between wood burning and gas? Worried about chimney maintenance? Then HearthCabinet™ could be the answer! These beautiful hearths are ventless, so you can make the most of any interior design. We particularly loved that you can get an "open" fireplace with four viewable sides! Best of all, they’re safe from precocious children and rambunctious dogs because each fireplace locks closed with a key. Even more, the canisters that create the flames are aluminum so they can be recycled, and an optional candle insert makes these hearths great in the off season, too!

They also provide support 7 days a week with a toll-free phone number and informational videos online. If you’re serious about eating local and minimizing your carbon footprint, you can’t do much better than this!

Distinguished Minimalist Fixtures

A small Italian faucet manufacturer that has a ton to offer—we were torn with what we’d want to feature from Fantini! Their teak outdoor shower has a lot of potential for anyone building a beach or lake house, but what really caught our eye was the silicone nodules on their shower heads. Their anti-lime scale system makes it easy to clean off any residue caused by particulates in your water. If you're looking for faucets, Fantini's have a wide range of stylish handles to consider that use different shapes, finishes, and materials. Concerned with eco-friendliness? They also have the AboutWater collection, which is manufactured under strict practices that respect the environment. Take a look and discover so much more!
