California Faucets Palomar Art Deco Tub Filler received the 2015 “Plumbing Product of the Year, Water Delivery” award at this year’s Decorative Plumbing Hardware Association annual conference.
The award ceremony took place during the Oct. 15-17 event at the Hilton at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, Calif.
“We’re thrilled that the judges recognized the fresh, cool elegance of Palomar’s retro-style and its flexibility to meet a diverse range of design tastes,” says Jeff Silverstein, president and CEO of California Faucets. “It’s especially meaningful to receive validation from DPHA, the decorative plumbing industry’s premier trade association.”
