About a month ago I was in Chicago for the International Home & Housewares Show representing the contributors for Inspired Homes. I got to experience the largest trade show I have ever attended and never imagined it would be this big! Total floor space was equivalent to 13 miles with over 2,100 home products from all over the world including small appliances, kitchen ware and the newest technology for cleaning your home.
I’m going to admit that I like functional items for my kitchen BUT they also have to be stylish. If I don’t like the look of it I won’t get it (call me shallow but what can I do about it? LOL! ) There were so many products that met my criteria but I didn’t have enough time to really check them all out. Here are my top products that I would LOVE to have in my new home
Alessi – All products are a work of art!
Crush Grind – I can’t pick a favorite just yet. I love them all!
This Crock-Pot for entertaining
While this is not for home I love to fly in style too with this Carry On Cocktail Kit from W&P Design
EVERYTHING from Amoretti BrothersLagostina and Papilla CookwareThe Inventors Corner looked like an episode of Shark Tank and there were some great new inventions.
