Metrie™ will transform its booth at the IBS Trade Show in Las Vegas (January 20-22, 2015) to demonstrate how designers, architects, builders and homeowners can use Interior Finishings such as trimwork, doors and mouldings in principle rooms of the home to create impact, achieve design flow and save money.

Building off the success of Metrie's Then & Now Finishing Collections™ - the first professionally designed, perfectly proportioned and coordinated collections of interior trim and doors in North America (featured in Elle Decor and This Old House among others), Metrie's booth will use the collections to demonstrate a hot decor trend of applying Interior Finishings to ceilings and walls in the kitchen, bathroom and dining room. The space will also exhibit the impact architectural trim can have on the feeling and flow of a space.

"We are excited to return to IBS and showcase different uses of our Then and Now Finishing Collections™, to share trends and demonstrate how impactful trim and doors are when applied creatively to key rooms of a home," says Alexandra Marshall, Metrie's Vice President of Marketing. "This year at our booth, builders, designers and architects will get great ideas on how to differentiate their projects and create spaces with impact, including how to bring unity to open-concept spaces using our harmonized collections of trim and doors."

Other Metrie booth highlights:

- Celebrity designers Andrew Pike and Amanda Forrest will be onsite at Metrie's 40ft by 60ft booth (# C5026 in Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Centre) to answer design questions and share inspirations for 2015.
- Interactive areas with touch-screen TV's where attendees can digitally create and change the look of rooms using architectural trim to suit various decor styles using the 'Room Styler' tool (also available on Metrie's website).
- New merchandizing displays presented to help anyone from channel partners to homeowners navigate the chaos of choice in choosing the right proportions and style of coordinated Interior Finishings like casings, baseboards and doors. Home Decor Modules featuring doors and product from Metrie's five Then & Now Finishing Collections™ will be displayed.
- A new door will be launched as part of the Very Square Finishing Collection, offering a lower-cost option to suit any budget.

"If you are a builder, remodeler, architect, designer, or kitchen and bath specialist we have created an educational seminar that you won't want to miss where you will learn how, when and why to integrate interior finishes into the design process along with helpful language to assist in communicating with customers about interior finishes." says Marshall. The IBS Education Seminar, entitled Finish Before You Start: Integrating Interior Finishes into Your Designs launches on Wednesday, January 21 (1pm - 2pm) at South 231. Counting as one CEU course hour, and offered as part of the NAHB Continuing Education program.

"Between our rebrand, the most successful product launch in our history, and winning a Digital Innovation Award for our industry-leading website it has been a big year for Metrie," says Marshall, adding new online tools that help make it easier to select Metrie's design-centric offerings are now available.

Metrie's award-winning digital marketing program includes a highly-interactive website and planning tools, including their Style Quiz, a feature that helps customers find a coordinated collection that most matches their personal style, and a Room Styler, which enables users to digitally customize the look of a room. The site's Inspired Living section hosts galleries of before and after rooms, home decor projects with detailed how-to instructions and videos, and their inspirational blog, The Finished Space, shares design trends and industry news.
