TKC showcases new Lucente Cashmere kitchen range, premium wirework and revamped lighting collection
TKC used its third appearance at KBB to showcase a new kitchen range, premium wirework and a revamped lighting collection.
Lucente Cashmere is the latest colour addition to the company's best-selling Lucente kitchen collection, expanding the range to offer eight high gloss and 15 hand-painted colourways. A warm grey with beige undertones, it offers a combinable neutral, pairing perfectly with the browns and woodgrains increasingly seen on kitchen worksurfaces, doors and floors.
We learned that Lucente is one of TKC's best-selling ranges with sales increasing by 60% during 2015. It's available from stock in a vast array of standard door sizes and with a wide variety of accessories, and bespoke door sizes are also available to order, offering customers even greater design freedom.
Also on show to offer a striking visual contrast was Lucente Anthracite in high gloss handleless, recently added to the Lucente range after TKC predicted last year that demand for deeper neutrals such as dark grey and olive would increase.
TKC also showed several recent additions to its Italian-made wirework by Inoxa, for whom TKC is the exclusive UK distributor.
Recognising the importance of stylish and ergonomic storage in the kitchen, TKC has expanded its premium Elite wirework range available in a contemporary titanium finish. Notable products include the Elite pull-out larder and pull-out base units come with a unique oval shaped bar and a robust solid basket base. The Dynamic range in chrome or grey offer a more value-led option and new products include the full height, 500mm wide Pegasus Pantry unit with five shelves that offers excellent storage capability. The innovative Genius corner unit features pull-out shelves with anti-slip trays. The Genius shelves rotate and move out of the cabinet, enabling access to a hard-to-reach area without unnecessary bending.
Following a complete overhaul of its lighting range, TKC is also upping the ante in the choice of styles available with six new LED lights, allowing customers to choose lights that are both stylish and money saving. Many of the new Steina LED lights can be connected to a TKC IR sensor switch and many are a 'plug and play' system which makes installation easier. The full TKC lighting collection was shown on a new POS lightboard at the show.
