Coverage sponsored by the IHA
As our International Home + Housewares 2012 coverage winds down, we're pleased to present a full photo gallery of some of notable objects and items from that whirlwind weekend in Chicago. From promising upstarts such as Rush3 LLC to DCI's investment in jumpstarting design students' careers, McCormick Place saw thousands of products over the course of the show, from March 10–13, which was extended an extra day by popular demand. Although we could have attempted to present the overwhelming abundance of products, we've opted to stick to an even hundred of our favorite images from the show.
Some of the trends we spotted included alternatives to ice cubes, home carbonation solutions and silicone storage solutions. Meanwhile, our friends at Bodum, Alessi and first-time exhibitors Dyson were happy to show us their latest offerings, many of which debuted at the IHHS 2012.
Our gallery, of course, features everything from award-winning student projects to major players in the housewares category and everything in between, so check it out for yourself:
