Decorative hardware: The Autore Collection is an Italian design collection of more than 400 pulls and knobs created by 16 European designers. Richelieu bills Autore as “an utterly luxurious collection of decorative hardware that transcends functionality and emerges as a statement that goes beyond trends.”
Decorative panels and cabinet doors: Richelieu offers an extensive range of decorative panels and cabinet doors in a wide variety of designs and decorative surface finishes from super matte to ultra-high-gloss and textured panels and cabinet doors imitating real woodgrain and stone. Richelieu’s line-up of surfaces includes Nature Plus by Cleaf, Glaks (shown), Harmony, Clari-T, Uniboard, Arauco and aluminum-framed doors. Woodworkers visiting to Richelieu’s WMS booth can see and try a live demonstration of an online cabinet door and drawer front configurator.
Kitchen accessories: Richelieu will show a variety of products for transforming any base cabinet into a functional storage system to optimize space and ease access. The Base Pull-Out II Frame is a versatile base cabinet pull-out frame adjustable from 24 in. to 32 in. in height and can be both top and bottom mounted inside a face-frame or frameless cabinet. The BPO II frame (shown) is compatible with various accessories such as wire baskets, Youboxx storage container sets, a rack to store cutting boards and baking sheets, as well as a spice rack.
Qanto electric lift-up system: Richelieu bills Qanto as “the ultimate base corner cabinet storage solution to maximize space and accessibility to usually difficult-to-access areas such as base corner cabinets in L-shaped and U-shaped kitchens and end cabinets of kitchen islands.” Qanto is comprised of two trays that rise from inside the cabinet at the push of a button, displaying their contents in full view and making everything easy to reach. The trays are designed with a crystal-glass effect rim that outlines the QANTO on the countertop.
Straightline modular wood divider system: Straightline, offered in birch, black ash and walnut, allows for custom-configured drawer organization. A series of trays can be combined with utensil dividers, knife blocks, plate holders, spice racks and boxes that snap into place drawers and pull-out shelves.
Closet solutions: Vertiko (shown) is a customizable storage system with open shelving and concealed design to maximize space and organization. A simple system comprised of an aluminum load-bearing support structure combined with brackets for cabinets, shelves, and closet rods for both residential and commercial projects. Richelieu will also showcase leather jewelry trays designed in Italy in six styles, widths of 5 in. and 8 in. and choice of mocha brown or toffee white.
Lighting: Richelieu offers tunable white light fixtures, which allows adjusting color temperature from warm white to cool white. The all-in-one integrated lighting system can create the right lighting experience for every space and every mood.
Gola integrated cabinet profiles: These integrated handles facilitate stream-lined designs of seamless contemporary cabinetry. An LED tape light that fits perfectly into the channel of the Gola profile can be added to provide a diffused lighting effect to cabinetry. Gola handles are available in black, chrome and white.
Space-saving furniture: Richelieu offers multiple foldaway bed mechanisms to help optimize spaces to create multifunctional rooms, including the Ciela (shown). The Tabla mechanism combines a bed with a dining table or work surface, transforming the space easily from daytime to nighttime activities.
Furniture legs: Richelieu offers a wide selection of designer, vintage and modern furniture legs and casters. The company offers a new brochure focused on legs and casters in various styles and finishes.
Glass hardware: Richelieu says it has continued to “become a major player in the glazing industry.” The company offers an ever-growing selection of glazing supplies, standoffs, glass railing and pool gate hardware, and more.
PowerDrive hybrid screws: PowerDrive screws can be used for assembling products with no need to pre-drill. A non-greasy wax coating on the thread prevents the wood from splitting and allows for a smooth penetration into the wood. The square drive enables a solid and adjustable fit while the self-countersinking flat head with nibs offers a flush finish.
