Every year a selected group of Interior Designers known as #DESIGNHOUNDS tour the show to highlight and share the best highlights from the show floor. With their walking shoes on and their cameras in hand, they share with us some of the best new introductions or rediscovered classics to consider for your next Kitchen or Bath renovation.
