KBIS in 2017 featured multiple manufacturers who showcased their leather applications within their cabinetry as a new option for clients. Syndicated columnist Debbie Travis noted that ” …leather is a handsome and durable material that transcends trends.
However, over the last decade its popularity has expanded from the familiar and tactile den sofa and office chair to include floor tiles,countertops, furniture, wall panels and cabinets, all using recycled leather products” in her yearly review of trends published in January. KBIS this year proved this trend with exhibitors embracing leather and Formica launching dECOLeather – a recycled leather veneer – at KBIS. Formica featured a Coastal Buffalo wall in a media room unit and advertised the uses of dECOLeather in cabinetry.
