Gerber Plumbing Fixtures has several decorative toilet and sink collections named to honor its Chicago-based heritage. The company has successfully showcased the vibe of a variety of communities in the city, matching collections with the special ambience each neighborhood has to offer. A recent addition to the Logan Square collection has led to it becoming the best selling decorative family Gerber manufactures.
Last year, Gerber introduced a one-piece Logan Square toilet with a concealed trapway that provides a cleaner and more upscale look than its two-piece counterpart. The new addition qualifies as a fully certified EPA WaterSense product with a MaP score of 1000 grams, and low water consumption of 1.28 gallons per flush. Those factors have made it more appealing to consumers and plumbers.
“We decided to acknowledge some Chicago neighborhoods and areas as a tribute to our heritage and the Gerber-Lewis family who made Chicago their home,” said Kevin McJoynt, Gerber’s director of product management – fixtures. “When we designed the Logan Square collection, its traditional styling appeared to be a good match for the older, more traditional feel you’ll find in the Logan Square neighborhood. It’s a well-kept older area that is known for its classic bungalows, stately greystones and wide boulevards.”
The Logan Square area is located on Chicago’s Northwest side, not far from downtown Chicago. It was originally developed in the 1830s and today is home to a diverse population. The beautiful, park-like boulevards McJoynt mentioned are part of the 26-mile, landmark-designated Chicago Boulevard System, which connects residents to trails and historic commercial and residential buildings.
“This collection is really a charming, traditional style,” McJoynt said, who indicated the layered rectangular angles look great with matching sinks. “It’s versatile and fits in any traditional bathroom for new construction, remodeling or renovation.”
