With 125 Years of Trend-Setting Design, Belwith-Keeler Celebrates Their Legacy at Kitchen and Bath Industry Show
Grandville, MI (December 2017) – Since its triumphant return to KBIS 2017, the Belwith-‐Keeler® luxury hardware brand has certainly made its mark. Leading the trends in hardware since the company’s inception in 1893, the artisans at Belwith-‐Keeler continue its mission with the launch of several new collections and the official kick-‐off of parent company, Belwith® Products 125th year, celebrating at the 2018 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) (booth #S5042), January 9-‐11, 2018 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
“2018 is a milestone year for our company, and we are excited to make KBIS the industry event to inaugurate our milestone year along with several collection launches, including one from our archives” said Tim Emmitt, president of Belwith Products.
Finding inspiration from fashion runways around the globe coupled with the skilled intuition and unique translation of those trends allows Belwith-‐Keeler to remain on the cutting edge of style with a steady stream of new products.
Among the highlights of the 2018 collection is the re-‐introduction of Vale, a 60-year-old design from the Belwith Products living library, in honor of the company’s 125th anniversary. First appearing in the 1953 Modern Hardware catalog, Vale’s exaggerated concave shape with its gentle slope, gives a nod to mid mod style while offering a timeless elegance
relevant to today’s décor.
“The past year for Belwith-‐Keeler has been phenomenal. We continue to build on our legacy with the creation of timeless designs that embody today’s trends,” said Knikki Grantham, Trend Manager, Belwith Products. “I cannot wait to share our new designs at KBIS and reintroduce the Vale collection to fellow designers.”
Grantham, on behalf of Belwith Products, will kick off their legacy celebration presenting at DesignBites to the kitchen and bath industry at noon on Tuesday, January 9, 2018, on the KBISNeXT Stage, located in the South Hall next to the Belwith-‐Keeler booth.
Show attendees are encouraged to stop by the Belwith-‐Keeler booth (#S5062) to see a variety of legacy items from their archives. Attendees can vote for their favorite archival piece for a chance to win a hardware makeover for a room of their choice, and to receive a special gift from their living library of designs.
