Since my first Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in 2009, I have eagerly evangelized for Universal Design and I enthusiastically embrace companies that “really get it” and don’t just give the concept lip-service for the sake of publicity. Häfele is a company that gets it. They teamed with Jenn-Air, Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry and Showplace Cabinetry, and renowned designer, Mary Jo Peterson to smartly design and develop several vignettes throughout their KBIS 2013 booth showcasing the beauty of Universal Design.
