Sugatsune is Getting Hooked on
Design Trends at Booth #N3048

February 19, 2019 – Carson, Calif.. Aesthetics and design details become even more important as people actively
engage in the creative process of designing elements throughout the home and
commercial spaces. As more people look for design solutions, they turn to
venues such as the Kitchen and Bath show to find new products and design
inspirations. Known for developing high-quality,
unique functioning hardware,
Sugatsune America is expanding their decorative hardware line-up so those who care about aesthetic
details can create the perfect space. At
this year’s 2019 KBIS and IBS show, Sugatsune will showcase these new designs
including a comprehensive collection of bold, striking and customizable hooks;
beautifully crafted
to transform an
ordinary space into an elegant experience.

“One distinct trend we have seen
throughout the home and in commercial spaces is the need for enhanced utility”
says Curtis Nakamura, Vice President of Sugatsune America. “Utility is often
perceived as function over form but as more people take an active role in the
design process, utility is now the balance of function and form. When we
studied the needs of people living their daily lives, you start to see how
important storage is and oftentimes, something as simple as a hook proves to be
the most convenient solution. However, when we go out looking for a hook, we
get let down by the mere fact that it is just a hook. So, to deliver
satisfaction and convenience to people, we set out to develop a plethora of
hooks that would not only provide the desired utility but add to the aesthetics
of the space being designed. “ 

In addition to new decorative hook collections,
Sugatsune America will feature new premium hardware solutions in real-world
applications designed to stimulate creative ideas for architects, designers and
custom home builders so they can create spaces that will captivate their
clients. “Like our hooks, Sugatsune prides itself on creating unique solutions
that not only solves a functional problem but provides users with a wow
factor,” Nakamura notes.  The LIN-X
series, which includes the
LIN-X1000, LIN-X450, and the LIN-X600, will do just
that.  A line-up of lateral opening door
systems that not only creates a flush appearance and allows full access into
areas where space is limited, but functions in a way for users to see that not
all doors swing alike. Be sure to stop by KBIS
2019 Booth #N3048

And for those that want to wrap up the day and relax, Sugatsune will be
