Every year industry pros gather at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) to see what’s new and what’s next. Manufacturers unveil what will become the latest trends while judges of the KBIS “Best of” awards are faced with the tough task of sifting through submissions as beautiful as they are innovative. And every year, by show’s end, a short list of winners is announced. This year’s Best of KBIS, Best of Kitchens and all three of the People’s Choice awards were presented to Dacor and Viking, both available through AUTCOhome at the Interior Design Center of St. Louis.
