C o n s t r u c t i o n M a r k e t p l a c e 5 7 W e d n e s d a y, J a n u a r y 2 0 , 2 0 1 6 HGTV FEATURING LUMBER LIQUIDATORS FLOORING IN DREAM HOME 2016 Lumber Liquidators is continuing its tradi- tion as a flooring sponsor for the HGTV ® Dream Home, marking its 14th year in the partnership. Once again, Lumber Liquidators is the sole flooring supplier for the HGTV Dream Home 2016, which will feature hardwood flooring throughout. Tom Sullivan, Lumber Liquidators' Founder, commented: "We are excited to once again be a part of HGTV Dream Home. Each home is beautiful and built to last, which is a goal that also inspires the quality of our flooring products. This is a great opportunity for people to catch a glimpse of what to expect in 2016." Over the last decade, Lumber Liquidators has provided the HGTV Dream Homes with a variety of high-qual- ity, durable hardwood and bamboo floors, from Bellawood Natural American Walnut to the Bellawood Carriage House White Ash in this year's home. Each floor has reflected the quality and trend-forward styles for which Lumber Liquidators is known. The Bellawood Carriage House White Ash is a whitewash style, a versatile look that can convey the feel of an urban loft or the charm of a beachside cottage. The flooring will give this year's home elegant modernity. Its gentle, airy hues also conceal dust and dirt well, and make a space feel larger with a simple grace that lets the decor shine. "Deciding to remodel an existing home for our 20th HGTV Dream Home Giveaway provided a challenge, knowing the expectations our viewers have for these homes," said Ron Feinbaum, Senior Vice President, Home Promotions. "Working with architect Michael Stauffer and builder Steven Price of Steven W. Price Construction, we were able to transform this existing home into a dream residence with ideas and trends that our fans can use in their own homes." CLAYTON HOME BUILDING GROUP GOES WITH ELECTROLUX The Clayton home building group has joined with AB Electrolux to provide all of its homes with the option of being fur- nished with products made by this leading appliance manufacturer.

NEW ROBOTIC VACUUM CLEANERS FROM LG LG Electronics (LG) unveiled an upgrad- ed lineup of its CordZero™ collection at CES 2016, which will be headlined by HOM-BOT Turbo+, the industry's first robotic vacuum cleaner equipped with augmented reality technology. Also included in the cordless vacuum collec- tion are the CordZero Canister, the 2-in-1 CordZero handstick, as well as the CordZero Bedding Cleaner. Together, the CordZero collection provides a premium cleaning experience that is free of tangled cords and smarter than ever before. HOM-BOT Turbo+: Smart Cleaning with Smart Technology LG's robotic vacuum cleaner, the HOM-BOT Turbo+, employs augmented reality technology with a smart feature called Home-Joy. This new user interface allows consumers to issue instructions to the vacuum cleaner by designating areas that need extra cleaning using the camera of any smartphone. Simply tap on the part of the room in the image to clean and HOM-BOT Turbo+ goes to that exact location and begins cleaning. The HOM-BOT Turbo+ also intelli- gently navigates consumers' homes and avoids obstacles such as stairs thanks to Robonavi™, an intelligent software sys- tem that utilizes the robot's dual CPUs to make lightning fast directional decisions. Both powerful and durable, LG's latest smart vacuum with Smart Inverter Motor is backed by a 10-year warranty giving owners long-lasting peace of mind. CordZero Canister: No Cords, No Hassles The LG CordZero Canister is fueled by a new lithium-ion battery PowerPack™80V that provides powerful suction and continuous cleaning for up to 40 minutes in regular mode, guaranteeing maximum suction and cleaning perform- ance that is nearly 10 percent more effec- tive in cleaning than LG's conventional 2,000 watt corded vacuum cleaner. Powered by LG's Smart Inverter Motor, the LG CordZero Canister generates an outstanding 79,000 RPM and is approxi- mately 60 percent smaller and 48 percent lighter than LG's previous Smart Inverter Motor. LG has equipped the CordZero Canister with a new ergonomic handle, which was inspired by flight control sticks found in aircrafts. The handle enables the vacuum to be easily maneu- vered in all directions without placing the weight of the vacuum hose on a user's wrist or back. Another advanced feature included in the CordZero Canister is the one-of-a-kind RoboSense™ technology. This feature eliminates the need to pull the vacuum cleaner body along while cleaning because the Automatic Location Recognition technology and Active Following Wheel technology allow the vacuum cleaner to track the user and fol- low at a constant distance. Rounding out LG's cordless vacuum lineup is the versatile CordZero Handstick with long-lasting Dual PowerPack battery and the CordZero Bedding Cleaner with the Dual Punch™ feature.
