Tapping into faucet trends
For the top faucet trends, we spoke with House of Rohl Marketing & Innovation Director, Sarah Nguyen. The company represents and collaborates with luxury brands such as Riobel and Victoria + Albert, valuing time-honoured traditions, artisanship and technical prowess. From traditional to modern, these are the latest innovations in kitchen faucets.
|MIXING OLD WITH NEW
Perrin & Rowe combines English craftsmanship with touchless technology, now available in the traditional Georgian Era faucet. “The lines between design styles are blurred as modern pieces are meshed with traditional accents.” Perrin & Rowe Georgian Era touchless starts at $1,700.
Adding a bar and food-prep faucet and sink gives the in-home bartender and home sous-chef a place to prep. This sleek, geometric shape and matte-black finish fits in perfectly with fixtures and appliances in today’s kitchen. Quartile side lever bar and food prep faucet – matte black with metal lever handle from Rohl starts at $1,031;
|CATCH THE WAVE
“Touchless technology is the wave of the future, allowing for water to be turned on and off with the motion of a hand improves overall wellness. There is more variety than ever in finishes; matte black is a continuing trend. Look out for brushed gold and dual finishes.”
The jewelery of the kitchen
We asked hardware expert Evan Smith, general manager at Berenson, to round up the trends of this crucial finishing touch to your kitchen.
“Modern designs are moving away from tried-and-tested styles towards a more personal, customized approach. Mixing different materials creates additional layers that make a space feel wholly unique and inviting.” Domestic Bliss Knob & Pull, modern brushed gold.
“Geometric patterns and shapes have often been one of the most desired and versatile elements in modern interiors. From flooring and backsplashes to eclectic accent pieces, refined geometric forms are visually striking. Create compelling balance and contrast in your designs with a bold, angular taste of hardware.”
|RETRO MID-CENTURY MODERN
“Mid-century style has stood the test of time, all while adapting to modern tastes. It has an enduring, no-fuss look that brings clean lines, soft curves and an affection for mixed materials. Add hardware to your space with a little retro flair to give it an updated blast-from-the-past look.” Swagger Knob & Pull, black nickel.
