 We are excited to announce that Amerock® Hardware

is sponsoring and hosting

the January 22, 2014 KBtribechat

Topic: Trends in Decorative Cabinet Hardware

Amerock Hardware Best of KBIS entry Allison_BC

Let’s talk hardware: How important is hardware to the overall design of a space?  We will be exploring the many ways designers use hardware in projects – and perhaps a few new ideas as well!  The new AmerockNOW simplifies selecting cabinet hardware for consumers and professional designers alike. The names of these eight new families in the AmerockNOW program—#BiCoastal, #NortheastHome, #Heartland, #LondonUndone, #Lodge, #PhoenixRising, #LAExperience, and #CityBeat—intuitively connect with consumers who are looking for a hardware style that resonates with their own home décor.
