KBIS 2008 - In The Pantry!

I had this post all put together day before yesterday. A couple of days prior I downloaded a beta firefox3 that I read was stable, almost ready to be released (well, June) yadayada. Then, I noticed a very slow internet connection. Did I make the connection between the browser and the slow internet? Not until today when I decided to try explorer to see how that ran. Made an appointment with the ISP and everything for this Saturday! Sheesh! So, we're up and running again, nice and fast. Here we go...

Let me tell you, I WORKED that show, KBIS! Ok, so I couldn't stop snapping pictures with my new camera, truth be told, BUT, my intentions were noble...and so many things were so inspiring. So, let's look at what's new for inside our kitchen cabinets and pantries.

Here's a cool new mechanism thing to allow your doors to sit at any position and stay there. No worries about snapping up or down or whatever. It's by Hafele, who makes so many useful and modern products for the kitchen.


Also from Hafele, a pull down shelf to access those hard to reach, and possibly, heavy items from the upper shelves of your wall cabinets.



And, one more from Hafele, a chefs pantry pantry insert with a new finish for the shelves. From the Arena champagne collection. The shelves are coated with a special finish which causes items NOT to move around. It's a good thing. :)



From Knape & Vogt, would you rather reach in and use this in your corner cabinet...


 OR THIS.....



More organization tools tomorrow. Just wait till you see THESE....

Thanks for mentioning lid/flap stays and lift up door fittings and the Arena Champagne Collection from Hafele on your blog. Glad you enjoyed the show and some of what we had on display.

Oh Hafele, I'm happy you're here, but three live links in your response? I think it's a bit over the top. Somehow, I thought the numerous Hafele images I, privately, chose to post would be good/welcome enough...silly me. Next time, let's have a conversation about this sort of response in advance, ok? Editorial guidelines, corporate/blog etiquette, and all that...

If links offend perhaps then a commenting policy, per chance?
