On Jan. 19, members of the Chicago Midwest chapter of the National Kitchen & Bath Association met at the 15,000-sq.-ft. showroom operated by Banner Plumbing Supply in Buffalo Grove, IL. A standing-room-only crowd attended the evening's presentation on faucet design trends by Judd Lord, director of industrial design at Brizo. The event drew more than 130 guests, who enjoyed a catered meal served from several locations in the showroom (including the working kitchen) while browsing the product displays, including several new ones. Pictured at the meeting (L-R): Judd Lord, Michelle Henderson, Banner's showroom manager, and Ila Lewis, former chairman of Gerber Plumbing Fixtures.
