Metrie at IBSOrlando 2017

We had an absolute blast at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando this year. We packed in all the action and events we could—and a lot of those exciting moments took place in our very own booth!

In case you missed it—we’ve put together a quick recap of all the excitement, events and trimspiration.

The Big Reveal: 2016 Design & Builder Challenge Winners Announced

On the first night of the Builders’ Show we were finally able to reveal the winners from our Every Room Tells A Story — 2016 Builder & Designer Challenge. We hosted the awards ceremony in our booth complete with a small jazz band, cocktails and delicious Metrie cupcakes.

We were honored to have all four of our winners there. They created such incredible spaces with our Then & Now Finishing Collections, and we love that they got the spotlight they deserved.

You can see a few of the photos from our event and the winner’s rooms below.

We Got to Hangout with Some Really Cool BlogTour Bloggers

BlogTourKBIS at the Metrie IBS Orlando booth.

In case you didn’t know, we love bloggers! This year we were honored to be one of the stops on the Modenus 2017 BlogTour at KBIS and IBS.

Metrie’s Ashley Kudrasovs and Erik Ostensen hosted the bloggers, walked them through all our gorgeous vignettes and introduced them to our latest interior finishings solution.

We even did a special contest just for the bloggers, and one lucky BlogTour blogger won an Apple Watch and Lux Wood wooden watch band.

Congratulations Michele Alfano! We were also inspired by your #MyMetrieTrimspiration choice!
