Discover Innovations from the 2023 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS)
How are the leading brands in kitchen and bath products innovating this year? The ICONIC LIFE Team headed to Las Vegas to find out at the 2023 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). On a ‘Tour de Appliances,’ the ICONIC LIFE Team and some 40,000 others explored the latest offerings from the top brands like Delta, Brizo, Kohler and more.
While there were so many wonderful booths to explore and we can’t name every single one, here are some highlights of our favorite booths found at the 2023 KBIS:
Voted best booth at KBIS, Kohler had a fun, interactive display, celebrating their 150th anniversary of color, design and innovation. Paying homage to their history, on display were toilets in a rainbow of heritage colors, and guests were invited to vote on their favorites. Chair and CEO David Kohler announced at KBIS that spring green and peachblow were the favorites, and that these two colors will be making a comeback.

Another booth that was a crowd-pleaser was for Monogram, featuring the Monogram Designer Collection x Richard T. Anuszkiewicz. Renowned interior designer and Monogram Creative Director, Richard T. Anuszkiewicz, had a focus on two themes—titanium and brass—for customizable options for ventilation hoods, refrigerator panels and handles. The full booth experience included a bakery and bar, two kitchens, a wine room and a courtyard.

In the land of refrigerators, the ICONIC LIFE Team fell head over heels for SMEG’s Italian heritage, fun colors and ICONIC shape. Offering a fridge to please the whiskey-lover in your life, LG presented the LG Craft Ice dual ice maker refrigerator, which can create ice balls for craft drinks.
Moving into bathroom displays, House of Rohl had an impressive booth sharing their latest innovations in sinks, faucets, tub fillers, accessories and shower solutions.

The best way to get around KBIS was using the newly opened Vegas Loop, which features two separate one-way, .8-mile-long tunnels built to accommodate Tesla vehicles. The Loop allowed the ICONIC LIFE team to travel in a less than two-minute ride, versus a 25 minute walk.
