To some, a closet is simply a place where their clothes hang and their shoes sit. Of course, you are not one of those people. And neither is Häfele America Co., one of America’s leading suppliers of closet organization and storage components, who is bringing the latest in wow-inducing closet solutions to booth C8916 at KBIS 2019 in Las Vegas, NV.
That means stunning closet hardware systems, decorative accents which make the neighbors jealous and all-new options to keep your things organized and secure.
“Closet designers and storage experts are always on the lookout for inspirational products which redefine current trends, but also add value,” says Mae Holler, category manager for Häfele. “And that’s the exact philosophy we use to extend our closet and storage product lines. Our featured KBIS products are a mix of new, yet timeless styles and innovations which support how closets are used today as well as 5 or 10 years from now.”
Making its KBIS debut in Las Vegas is a program for closet designers and installers to make their organization and storage projects truly custom: dECOLeather® Recycled Leather Veneer (RLV) by EcoDomo. This program allows for the selection of custom leather doors, drawer fronts, shelves, liners and countertops made to exact specification in a variety of unique finishes. The program allows for efficient, streamlined ordering and quick fulfillment, regardless of the size or scale of the project.
The art and amazement of the Coloma Closet & Storage System is precisely what you don’t see. It’s concealed, like a magic trick. European styled and manufactured in Italy, Coloma shows off the beauty of casework and other accessories while giving the appearance of drawers which levitate and clothes which float—perfect for the stylish organization of closets, entertainment centers and other casework storage needs.
With a chic, sleek design, Coloma cleverly hides mounting hardware and brackets either behind shelves and drawers or within very narrow, vertical mounting channels. Featuring three-way adjustability, Coloma hardware can be adjusted up and down, in and out or side-to-side and is available in four standard depths: 12”, 14”, 18” and 22” and either silver or oil-rubbed bronze finishes. In keeping with the European styling, Signature Wardrobe Tubes allow your clothes appear to hang in suspension. This combination is ideally suited for nearly any configuration—from space constrained applications to those where storage needs and real estate are widely abundant.
Closets are where we store our most treasured things. And where peace of mind in securing things like jewelry and other valuables is paramount. Designed exclusively for closets, the all-new Digital Keypad Safe from Häfele fits within a standard 18” wide x 14” deep opening. Its interior, fixed shelf offers plenty of storage flexibility.
Constructed of durable steel and outfitted with mounting holes so it can be securely anchored to walls or shelves, its electronic keypad accepts customized 3-6 digit access codes as well as an optional master code. Emergency keys are also included in the case of battery power loss or forgotten access codes. The unit runs on 4 AA batteries, sold separately.
Also featured at KBIS 2019, the ENGAGE Closet & Storage System features modular and stylish pull-out shelves and drawers which fully extend and come standard with soft close action. ENGAGE includes a wide array of hampers, dividers, shoe organizers, folding stations and storage boxes to suit any configuration. ENGAGE hampers even come equipped with scratch-resistant handles which can be grabbed with one hand, emptied and returned to the closet with ease.
Most ENGAGE system components come pre-assembled, allowing for easy and efficient installation. Finishes include matt nickel frames with slate fabric, oil-rubbed bronze with beach fabric and now matt gold frames with beach fabric in standard 18”, 24”, 30” and 36” widths. Drawers are available in both regular and tall drawer front depth with matching dividers. Even more personality and style can be added with drawer face adapters to conceal frames and dividers.
Finishing Häfele’s KBIS 2019 closet display are items such as the Synergy Tilt Out Hamper which handles dirty laundry ease, the Synergy Elite Shoe Fence to keep your soles paired and Häfele’s Jewelry Tray and Belt Tray to tame those items which would otherwise get away without proper containment.
