The innovation and amazing functions which can be incorporated into today’s projects through functional hardware are downright astounding. And Häfele America Co. , one of America’s leading suppliers of functional hardware and furniture hardware components, has every single one of them you could imagine or need showcased at KBIS 2019.

Starting with the drawer boxes, the smoothly styled, European-designed Grass Vionaro Drawer Systemis now available in white—a finish designers have been demanding because of its clean, sleek appearance.

“Designers really cannot get enough of the Grass Vionaro in white for their kitchen and bath projects,” says Karen Armour, category manager for Häfele. “This system shows really, really well from every angle and gives them the performance they’ve come to expect from Grass.”  

The Grass Vionaro brings simple, clean lines in an ultra-stylish package for every standard drawer height. Vionaro offers an incredible level of easy, tool free adjustment with under mounted Grass Dynapro slides featuring built in synchronization. Additional available finishes include silver gray and graphite.

Other functional hardware highlights featured in Häfele’s 2019 KBIS booth C8916 include:

Häfele’s MX Drawer System is the designer’s preferred option for kitchens, bathrooms, offices, stores and beyond. This European-style, double walled drawer system features sleekly designed standard and deep depth drawers on high-quality runners. Available MX finishes include White, Anthracite and Champagne. Installers will love its easy installation and simple adjustability. Customers will love the MX’s beauty coupled with years of trouble-free performance.

Designers of any space will love the bottom mounted Salice Shelf which allows you to install a pull-out shelf practically anywhere without having to trim it to fit between slides. Think about it: that means that, within reason almost any material or item can be turned into an extendable shelf. Just two runners hold up to 75 lbs. and four runners hold up to a maximum of 100 lbs.

The all-new Air Hinge from Salice is a groundbreaking piece of hardware. Mortised into both the cabinetry and the door it closes, this hinge delivers full functionality in a stylish, discreet package.  Fully adjustable in three directions by way of an eccentric cam, the AIR features integrated soft close and is ideal for high-end kitchens, bathrooms, living- and bedroom furniture and display cabinets. Available finishes include nickel-plated or titanium which is an ideal complement for both solid white and dark cabinetry.

If you’ve ever struggled to fit a tall cereal box in a smaller space, we’ve got a solution for you: the all-new X-Series Bracket System is interchangeable and features tool-free adjustability. With a simple slide/swing motion the slides are disengaged from the pilasters and conveniently moved up or down to accommodate pantry items. X-Series Bracket Kits are available in standard, full or pantry heights with pilaster widths of 1-1/4” or 2-1/2”. They can be cut if needed for any height and conveniently clear face frame cabinets and hinges making installation a breeze.
