California Faucets Debuts Collection Of Tub Fillers To Complement All Styles Of Design

Now available in Wall-Mounted, Freestanding and Deck Mounted versions, available with a selection of handle styles and all 30+ artisan finishes – making for the largest collection of Tub Fillers on the market.

Four new models offer customizable companions to today’s popular freestanding bathtubs
California Faucets introduces four new tub filler series, offering increased options and flexibility for accessorizing today’s popular freestanding bathtubs. The largest collection of tub fillers in the industry, the new designs bring homeowners and designers alike a myriad of choices to personalize any style of bathroom project, from traditional to contemporary—and everything in between.

Each of the four new tub fillers is available in floor standing and deck-mounted models and offer the freedom to leave as-is or create dozens of design variations. Like California Faucets customizable faucets, the new tub filler designs allow the ability to mix and match any spout with any handle from another series, and choose from more than 30 finishes.

“Freestanding tubs are one of the top bathroom design trends today. By expanding our collection of tub fillers, we now offer designers the freedom and flexibility to complement virtually any taste,“ says Jeff Silverstein, President and CEO of California Faucets. “Whether they’re pairing it with a classic claw foot or a clean and modern tub style, designers can combine any of our tub fillers with any of our handle styles—in any available finish—for a truly personalized look,” Silverstein adds.

Following the popularity of the original Balboa 15 series, an antique-style faucet with cross handles and a classic “telephone” style hand shower, California Faucets expands their tub filler offerings to include the ultra contemporary Asilomar 11 Series and Bolsa 12 Series, plus the more traditional Palomar 13 Series and Hermosa 14 Series.

Both clean and modern, Asilomar and Bolsa tub fillers feature distinctively different spouts—Asilomar with its sleek curves, and Bolsa with its angular metro-inspired silhouette. On the more classic side, Palomar and Hermosa styles are similarly offered with arched and angled spout, respectively. But it is the vintage-inspired detailing, including accents of white enamel, which distinguishes these traditional designs.

List pricing for the Asilomar 11 Series and Bolsa 12 Series starts at $1,929 in standard Polished Chrome. The Palomar 13 Series and Hermosa 14 Series start at $1,979 in Polished Chrome. Other options are available from a selection of special finishes, such as Oil Rubbed Bronze, or a premium finish, such as 24K Satin Gold.

The new tub fillers were recently introduced with a whimsical, Pixar-style video—Tub Filler Fever. The video features each style of tub filler dancing to a different music genre, including disco, tap, hip hop, and ballet, to creatively illustrate their distinctively individual designs.

CALIFORNIA FAUCETS CREATES UNIQUE “FLOATING HANDLE” FAUCET

The ultra-thin, planar handle of the new Morro Bay™ Series single-hole lavatory faucet operates completely independently of the body
California Faucets has broken fresh ground with its new Morro Bay™ Series single-hole faucet. By radically thinning the design of the handle, its independent operation gives it the appearance of gently sailing above the faucet body. This groundbreaking ultra-thin planar “floating handle” design stands apart from typical single-hole faucets with handles that move along with a heavy, cumbersome hub.

Cubist and contemporary, Morro Bay’s streamlined design is stylishly square without the chunky look associated with most square single-hole faucets. A thin spout adds symmetry to the handle, creating geometric balance and fluidity, while accentuating the independent operation of the handle. The Zen in Morro Bay’s design lies in the width of the handle, which equals that of the spout beneath and provides a harmonious counterpoint to the cuboid faucet body.

“Because Morro Bay’s handle works as a free spirit, it gives the illusion of a thin, flat rectangle balancing atop the faucet body, like a fulcrum,” says Noah Taft, California Faucets Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales. Taft further explains the idea behind the innovative design features that make Morro Bay unique among single-hole faucets. “Zen-like in its simplicity, the design intentionally omits the extraneous. The resulting effect is both sleek and ethereal.”

Like all California Faucets bath fittings, the Morro Bay single-hole faucet is constructed of solid brass and available in 30-plus artisan finishes, including 15 PVD finishes with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.

The Morro Bay single-hole faucet is available in heights of 5-5/16” and 11-9/16” and ranges in price from $529 to $1,086, depending on the finish.
