A built-in gift-wrapping station from EcoNize makes giving presents a little easier. This counter-height island is accessible from all sides and offers a tilt-out bin to keep paper protected and out of sight; adjustable rods to store crafts and rolls at arms’ reach; hooks for bags and supplies; and drawers for ribbons and tags.

The Farrow & Ball color palette is now available for use outdoors, with hard-wearing formulations designed to protect surfaces like brick, woodwork and metal from the elements. Finishes include exterior eggshell, exterior masonry and full gloss. Pictured here, Yellow Cake in eggshell brightens up an exterior door.  

The Designer Textures Collection of entry sets from Rocky Mountain Hardware now includes seven solid-bronze motifs varying in style from faux-bois wood grain to a symmetrical tufted pattern to a delicate branch motif. Available in white bronze or medium patina.

Streamline Hoods is a distributor of European glass range hoods that add a modern sensibility to the kitchen—with a personal touch. The hoods, which come in nearly 200 colors, showcase custom imprints of everything from personal snapshots to decorative motifs. Pictured here, the I-435 hood is available in a choice of sizes.

Kohler debuted the Sensate Touchless kitchen faucet at the 2013 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show. A hands-free fixture that eliminates the spread of germs, it works with the wave of a hand or object. A two-function spray head easily switches from stream to spray.

Gain access to hard-to-reach corner cabinets in the kitchen with hardware from the German company Kessenbohmer. When the cabinet door opens, a front shelf glides out on smooth bearings, swiveling aside so the rear trays can slide to the front. Available through Nouvel Kitchen and Bath in Tysons Corner.

Conrad’s Asian Inspiration collection features six weaves ranging from delicate sheers to nubby textured textiles. Handwoven from sustainable natural fibers, the collection can be fabricated as a Roman, roll-up or motorized shade, and as drapery, sliding and fixed panels. Available in sizes up to 155 inches wide.

Designed by architect John Dimopoulos, EcoSmart Fire’s Zeta fireplace combines leather, stainless steel and glass. Its body is made of high-heated aluminum molded into a crescent shape and upholstered in Roast, Onyx or Amaretto leather. It houses a ventless, stainless-steel firebox insert protected by a toughened glass screen.
