Today, I'm gonna show you some faucets that are marvelous. -The Tresa Bath Collection from Brizo comes in a variety of styles. In addition to the original wall-mount faucet, there are three new deck-mount models including a widespread bath faucet, a bridge faucet, and a single hole lavatory faucet. The collection boasts a Diamond Seal technology that keeps metal contaminants out of the water stream. The Danze South Sea single handle lavatory faucet has a new distressed bronze finish. The bamboo style of the faucet has an Asian inspiration. There is a full line of accessories available in the South Sea Collection. Pilar kitchen faucet from Delta features a pullout spout and Diamond Seal technology. The most innovative feature of the faucet is the single touch on/off function. -This year at the show, what we've introduced is our new pot filler within the Tara Classic Collection that allows for dual control both here as well as in the base of the unit. Also, what we've introduced in the Tara Ultra range which has a bold segment of its base as well as a spray that can be pulled out and then reclined back into the unit. It's an on/off situation, full volume control, and Dornbracht offers this both in chrome as well as in platinum. -The Grohe Bridgeford bridge faucet features a swivel spout and an elegant design. It is available in a variety of finishes including brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, and StarLight chrome. The Kohler Carafe kitchen faucet is an all-in-one product. The right lever controls the water temperature. The left lever controls the filtered water feature. The Moen Fina bath faucet offers a contemporary look with soft lines. It also features a water-saving aerator that reduces water consumption by 30% compared to standard faucets. The Kenzo Collection of bath faucets from Price Pfister features a contemporary trough-style faucet that lets water naturally flow into the sink. This year, they introduced a wall-mount version of the faucet. The collection is also WaterSense certified by the EPA as a water-saving product. -No modern kitchen today is complete without a pot filler, and at Rohl we have several different models and styles to choose from. We have both deck mount and wall mount. We have them in five different finishes and the deck mount is very convenient because it takes the water to exactly where you need it, and then the retractable arm allows you to push it out of the way. -The Symmons' Naru lavatory faucet has a sleek, modern look designed with Japanese inspiration. The waterfall flow has a natural feel that adds to the sophisticated design. -Well, you may not need a faucet this big, but you're gonna need a faucet sooner or later and those are my hot picks for faucets.
