BlueStar Goes to Arch Digest Home Design Show 2014

kim lewisLast week marked our second year at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show in New York City.  For four days interior designers, architects, press, dealers, distributors and consumers were exposed to the latest trends, technologies, and new products from hundreds of exhibitors.  We were so thrilled to be a part of such an incredible show, and are already looking forward to 2015!  This year, our booth was designed by the incomparable Kim Lewis, of Kim Lewis Designs and lead designer on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  Kim was also on hand to share some of the latest kitchen design trends.

BLOG_CHEFSAt the show we launched our new Electric Wall Oven, which offers the performance, capacity and customization capabilities of the iconic BlueStar® oven, now available for the first time in electric.  Professional-level performance features include 12 cooking modes with convection, unmatched oven capacity, infrared broiler, precision temperature probe plus built-in, temperature-controlled artisan baking stone; plus your choice of 750 colors and finishes, and French or drop down doors.  Our All Star Chefs, Zoë François, Suvir Saran and Aliyyah Baylor were on hand to make some incredible creations in the new Electric Wall Oven. Chef François and Saran dished out custom pizzas on the built-in artisan baking stone with a dough recipe from François’ latest book, The NEW Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.  Chef Baylor made some incredible cupcakes and even taught onlookers how to expertly frost.

BLOG_PLATINUMAlso on exhibit was our new Platinum™ Series, the ultimate in luxury cooking performance.  With revolutionary new features including 25,000 BTU burners, an interchangeable griddle and an innovative PowR™ oven plus a re-imagined design, the Platinum™ Series offers incomparable power and performance for discerning home chefs who demand restaurant-quality results.  To add a bit of fashion runway flair, it was decked out in the Pantone® 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.

BLOG_INFCOPPWe rounded out the booth with our iconic freestanding ranges.  Our RNB line provides the performance and power of gas ranges typically found in professional kitchens, with 22,000 BTU burners for high heat searing and a 130° simmer burner.  The 24″ RNB, perfect for any New York apartment, was shown in our Textures Line, recently named a Most Innovative Product for 2014 by K+BB.  The 48″ RNB in Infused Copper with matching hood showed off one of the biggest design trend, metallic.
