Arched Water Delivery
The Curve faucet by Isenberg is a true standout in the bathroom, adding an unexpected visual twist and dramatic options for color and style. Using a singular horizontal orientation, the faucet reaches away from the wall to extend in a graceful arch over the sink. The impact is even more dramatic when the Curve is installed in pairs over a double vanity.
Designed for left and right configurations, this memorable faucet comes in two designs: one with deck-mounted handles and the other with hands-free sensors. Curve is offered in traditional finishes such as chrome, brushed nickel and matte black, as well as Isenberg’s rainbow of ceramic-based hues such as crimson and navy blue. Color finishes are oven-cured and machine-polished for a flawless finish resistant to scratches, chips and corrosion.
The industrial look continues to be in hot demand, with consumers and designers alike clamoring to achieve that urban-inspired vibe. The new Industrial Frameless Mirror by Sterlingham Co. Ltd. is a wonderful addition to any design space hoping to create this classic style. Available in round, oval and rectangular designs, these mirrors feature lathe-formed parts with knurled detailing — perfect for an industrial theme.
The mirrors are made from a high-quality, 6mm-thick mirrored glass, held securely in place with wall brackets at the top and bottom. The brackets are offered in a selection of 16 finishes, including gun metal, brushed brass, polished nickel and matte black. In keeping with the brand’s reputation for exceptional quality and craftsmanship, all components are polished by hand before assembly, and each mirror is meticulously inspected before and after electroplating to ensure a perfect finish.
It is a defining style element in any room, from the bedroom or bathroom to the living room or hallway.
A Whole New Shower Experience
Imagine a private wellness oasis in a beautiful outside setting. The outdoor shower by Gessi is a wonderful addition to an alfresco living space. From an aesthetic perspective, the shower is sleek and sculptural with a simple, tubular design. It is offered with four different knurling patterns and in three stunning finishes.
Each shower can be customized with a selection of adjustable showerheads and special sprayers that can be mixed in a variety of intriguing combinations. The result is an outdoor shower experience like no other, creating a sense of freedom and rejuvenation that refreshes the body, mind and spirit. Gessi constructs each shower unit from premium 316 stainless steel and uses its signature PVD technology to produce a finely detailed surface perfectly suited to withstand the elements with ease.
Amp up the style in the kitchen with a bold choice of faucets. The new Knob Collection by HamatUSA makes effective use of shapes and silhouettes to create an elegant industrial look. The sleekly linear spout is neatly curved to end at a right angle against a vertical cylindrical head. The effect is perfect for minimalist decors and contemporary kitchens.
Constructed of 316 stainless steel, Knob faucets are finished with a unique combination of polishing and brushing techniques, creating a subtle texture and glow not often found in stainless steel. The collection includes single- and dual-handle designs with optional side sprayers and spout projections nearly 12 inches tall. A more compact version of slightly more than 8 inches is meant for smaller areas such as wet bars and prep sinks.
Down to Every Detail
Hardware plays an important role in finishing a cohesive look in the kitchen and bath. Ageless Iron offers a charming selection of knobs and pulls perfectly suited for today’s trendy industrial and modern farmhouse motifs. The simple purity of its AEG and KEP cabinet knobs is a great addition to any kitchen and bath. The circular details of its Turret and Castle knobs are ideal for rustic or modern decors, while the Machine and Barn pulls are offered in a range of sizes to suit any cabinet configuration.
All are offered in a crisp black finish that makes a pleasing contrast against white or light-colored cabinetry and drawers. Ageless Iron products are made of cast iron and hand-finished by skilled craftsmen for an extraordinary surface texture. Backed by a five-year warranty, each piece is zinc-plated and powder-coated for maximum durability and comes with two screw lengths for easy installation.
Party in the Kitchen Sink
Entertaining at home is more popular than ever, and Lenova makes it a little easier with its aptly named Entertainer Sink. This fully functional sink performs wonderfully as a prep station and refreshment center whenever crowds of friends and family gather. Its narrow rectangular shape provides maximum accessibility, while its practical undermount design helps make clean-up a breeze.
The Entertainer is perfect as a second sink in a large kitchen, a primary sink in an outdoor kitchen or a bar. It comes with its own drain boards, wine cooler and three condiment trays, and when not in use, it may be cleverly covered with a two-piece cutting board to maximize counter space. The Entertainer Sink is crafted from 16-gauge stainless steel and is finished in scratch-resistant satin.
This extraordinary design achievement from Acquabella is a most memorable addition to the bathroom. The Stelvio is a freestanding tub unlike any other, with an exquisitely textured surface mimicking the detailing of a geometric prism. Fascinating from every angle, the Stelvio is a natural centerpiece in any design space. It measures 66 inches long by 33 inches wide and an impressive 25 inches deep, with ample room to spare when it’s time for a relaxing soak.
Stelvio is made from Acquabella’s signature Dolotek material, a mineral composite that is silky smooth to the touch and forms a flawless finished surface. With an amazingly durable and easy-to-clean antibacterial surface, Dolotek is a practical choice for today’s bathrooms. The Stelvio tub is offered in a beautiful snow white with options for a matte or gloss finish.
