WineHive a new take on wine storage
Made of anodized recyclable aluminum, WineHive securely holds bottles horizontally to keep corks moist and the modular design can fit your space with a countertop or wall display. The designer behind the WineHive Storage System was inspired by honeybees and their optimized honeycomb structure. This inspiration led to a unique interlocking structure that is fully customizable and expandable, so it can grow with your wine collection. WineHive also donates 1% of all retail sales to the bee-saving efforts of Washington State University’s Pollination Program. Go to winehive.com.

People are investing in their vanities with 3 in 5 choosing custom or semi-custom options. Additional trends from the study include engineered quartz as a top countertop pick, transitional style leading the way, solid colors like white and gray, shower updates and adding greenery when renovating a bathroom.
