At Designs of Distinction by Brown Wood, Inc., we enjoyed exhibiting at KBIS this year.  We are known for bringing the latest trends of decorative wood and metal accents and supports for kitchen, bath and furniture.

As an exhibitor at KBIS, Designs of Distinction made its mark with several new product launches. We launched a new Cut-to-Size Wire Mesh program which includes 8 styles, 6 colors, no minimums and quick shipping. In addition, we launched our new line of decorative onlays that were part of Best of KBIS. Our new line of acrylic and chrome feet were also a hit!
