KBB - January 2015 - (Page 6)

EDITOR'S NOTE DESIGN + INNOV TION + LIFESTYLE / January 2015 A Happy 60th Birthday K+BB! When I started with the magazine a few years ago, the NKBA was celebrating its 50th year at KBIS 2013. Now with KBIS 2015 almost here, K+BB is celebrating its 60th birthday - just a few major milestones of which I have had the opportunity to be a part Having launched in 1955, K+BB (then known as Kitchen Business) was the first trade magazine for the kitchen and bath industry in the U.S. In 1981, the publication was renamed Kitchen + Bath Business to include expanded coverage on bathroom projects, as well. Today K+BB is read by kitchen and bath designers, dealers, architects, custom builders and remodelers, who see it as the essential resource for the knowledge they need to collaborate with the entire project team, including the consumer. K+BB will celebrate its 60th anniversary all year long, and as the official sponsor of KBIS, we will feature four different magazine covers for this January show issue - each depicting a recent and stunning residential kitchen or bath project or kitchen and bath showroom. Let us know which is your favorite when you stop by our booth N2000 at KBIS 2015. Our expanded KBIS coverage in this issue includes a list of all of the can't-miss events, including education, award and networking programs; tips on how to make the most of your experience; a sneak peek of even more exhibitor product offerings waiting for you - and the list goes on and on. Experts share their insights on what lies ahead for the kitchen and bath industry in our Industry Outlook 2015, and instead of two - we have FOUR feature project articles in this issue to go with each cover, including a look into the PIRCH showroom culture. We have also expanded our column offering to include nine secrets to success, how to design a kitchen with yacht-like elements, achieving customized storage needs, mobile applications to help you succeed, labor challenges and solutions, tricks to get your clients to accept sustainable design - this list goes on and on, as well. Please visit me - and my new managing editor Erinn Waldo - at our booth at KBIS 2015. Our "Meet the Editor" schedules are listed on page 67, and we hope to see/meet you there in person! n Chelsie Butler, Executive Editor chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com EDITORIAL EXECUTIVE EDITOR | Chelsie Butler 1145 Sanctuary Parkway Suite 355, Alpharetta GA 30009 (770) 291-5425 chelsie.butler@emeraldexpo.com MANAGING EDITOR | Erinn Waldo (770) 291-5617 erinn.waldo@emeraldexpo.com ART DIRECTOR | Wendi Van Eldik (770) 291-5520 wendi.vaneldik@emeraldexpo.com GRAPHIC DESIGNER | Denise Fields (770) 291-5487 denise.fields@emeraldexpo.com INDUSTRY WATCH eNewsletter Nichole Schulze naschulze@yahoo.com CONTRIBUTING WRITERS Holly Berecz & Holly O'Dell EDITORIAL ADVISORY BOARD Tom Acquavella; Amy Ahearn, CKD, CAPS; Tiffany Andrus; Kate Bailey; Meredith Barclay; Patti Baumann; Ronald Bullington; Jeff Burton; Kim Calavas; Cheryl Kees Clendenon; Paul Cottle; Kristina Crestin; Sabrina DaLomba; Sandra Espinet; Bill Feinberg; Patricia Gaylor; Pamela Goldstein, CMKBD, CAPS, ALLIED ASID; Gloria Graham-Sollecito, AKBD; Christopher Grubb; H.
