The new Fira collection embodies the very essence of Home Refinements by Julien: exclusive design and masterful craftsmanship.
The Fira sinks push the limit of this ancestral manufacturing process by achieving remarkable precision, giving you the only fireclay sink that turns into a workstation. Complemented with a wide range of accessories, the sinks with ledge give way to endless combinations of useful tools.Their versatility does not end there; with a reversible apron front, flat or Shaker style, the Fira kitchen sinks will surely complement any décor, from contemporary to transitional.
With the Fira kitchen sinks, changing style is always an option since two apron front designs are available on the same product. On one side, a flat apron for a clean look that blends easily. On the other side, a Shaker style apron with 2″ wide frame, a timeless classic.
Only the finest materials are selected and carefully mixed to produce the Fira sinks. The rigorous process which each sink undergoes ensures its dimensional stability and a perfectly smooth, non-porous finish. The firing process not only makes the surface impervious to dirt, it also fuses the materials together leading to higher impact and scratch resistance. For increased protection, make sure to add a bottom grid. Its tightly spaced stainless steel rods prevent cutlery from passing through. Moreover, its feet which also act as bumpers prevent any contact with the sink bottom and inside walls.
Plenty of space
Inspired by the J7 stainless steel sink collection, the Fira sinks have tight internal radii that enhance their contemporary esthetics while also making them easy to clean. Thin walls, tight radii and 10″ deep bowl, are all characteristics that have been thoughtfully incorporated into the Fira sinks to maximize your work space.

Where Italian design meets California craftsmanship, you’ll find Davoli, part of the new Kitchen Collection from California Faucets
California Faucets proudly introduces the Davoli Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet. Part of the company’s new line, The Kitchen Collection, the Davoli Series offers a fresh spin on traditional design. From the company known for lavatory faucets made with high-quality craftsmanship and endless customization options, the new Davoli Series brings Old World European style to the kitchen sink, but with a modern twist. With uniquely customizable handle options, plus a full range of coordinating accessories including a pull-down prep/bar faucet, hot and cold water dispensers, soap dispenser, air activation switch for disposer, and air gap, Davoli lets designers and homeowners create a completely coordinated ensemble.
“With Davoli, we took the best of traditional Italian design and fused it with features important to the American market,” says Jeff Silverstein, President and CEO of California Faucets. “The result is a kitchen faucet that is stately and luxurious, yet familiar and inviting at the same time,” he adds.
Unlike most kitchen faucet lines, all California Faucets Kitchen Faucet series, including the Davoli Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet, offer a complete suite of coordinating accessories. And just like the faucets, all accessories are handcrafted with California Faucets signature solid brass construction.
For true personalization, the Davoli Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet features a choice of seven distinctive handle designs, ranging from modern to classic.

Another noteworthy feature that illustrates a special attention to quality and detail is the Davoli’s pull-down spray head. Including a magnetic docking for easy return, it offers seamless toggling back and forth between single stream and spray modes. Further, whereas most manufacturers utilize spray heads made of plastic, California Faucets proudly uses solid brass for this often cheapened faucet element.
Pricing for The Davoli Series begins at $875 for the Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet in Polished Chrome. For a brief video featuring The Kitchen Collection, as well as a list of California Faucets Select Dealers nationwide, visit www.californiafaucets.com.
Pembroke is a new transitional collection comprising of a freestanding tub and a drop in/undermount basin, Pembroke 52. It has been designed by Italian designers Meneghello Paolelli Associati and the idea was to reimagine the tradition of Tudor era design in a modern and soft way. Named after the birthplace of England’s first Tudor king, the Pembroke evokes a regal elegance, accented by crisp corners and a neat rim.
The bathtub is designed with a clever blend of straight, crisp lines and curves; the shape lightens towards the base as it assumes a pleasing roundness. Deep and dual ended, the bathtub provides a luxurious soaking experience for one or two people. The bathtub is available in seven exterior finishes: English cast white, matte white, gloss black, matte black, anthracite, light gray and stone gray.
SORIANO: DESIGNED AND MADE IN ITALY
Victoria + Albert is pleased to unveil a stunning new line of stainless steel faucets known as Soriano. This contemporary collection of Italian-made fixtures is the result of another successful collaboration with Milan-based design studio Meneghello Paolelli Associati.
Their singular inspiration for Soriano came from the Boolean world of coding logic, which is reflected in the “1s” and “0s” that are the essence of each faucet. The finished look is brilliant in its simplicity, with the spout, lever and base of each piece defined by one shape, creating a sleek silhouette that is a decidedly modern addition to any luxurious bathroom.
The Soriano Collection is notable for its exceptional craftsmanship as well as its good looks. Made from stainless steel construction throughout, the faucets are beautifully finished in a brushed stainless steel as well. This new finish option from Victoria + Albert delivers impressive durability and is easy to maintain. “We aimed to create a clean, sharp and elegant collection. We see these values as inner elements of the Stainless steel itself. We tried to work with this material by giving expression and supporting these characteristics, without forcing its nature. Geometry, intersection and Boolean are the key words of Soriano”– Meneghello Paolelli Associati.
Victoria + Albert makes it easy to create a cohesive bathroom space by offering four different Soriano configurations, all designed to perfectly complement its own line of sinks, tubs and vanities. The Soriano 9 is a three-hole basin mixer with adjustable aerator that brings a gleaming sophistication to the sink area. The Soriano 14 is a natural fit for freestanding tubs with its floor-mounted design and handheld shower attachment. Featuring a “monoblock” design, the Soriano 16 is a deck-mounted basin mixer with a single handle, closely echoing the Soriano 19 with its lower level design profile. Both bring a stylish flair to the bathroom with their bold lines and graceful curves.
The Soriano collection also comprises a concealed shower collection, a new configuration for Victoria + Albert for 2018. The concealed collection allows the consumer to mix and match with different components to find the perfect combination for their bathroom. Start with the Hub 01 concealed valve, which is thermostatically controlled for safety. This two-way hub is compatible with the diverter control (Soriano 31), which allows the installer to choose between two water outlets from a bath spout (Soriano 43), handheld shower (Soriano 42) and shower rose (Soriano 41). Concealed shower applications are notable for their clean, minimal aesthetic, a look commonly seen in luxurious hotels.
Victoria + Albert is pleased to unveil a new category of washstand that is notable for its beautiful brass construction, gleaming Polished Chrome finish and ENGLISHCAST® basin top. With an open design and minimalist lines, the collection was created in collaboration with Italian designers Meneghello Paolelli Associati, known for their take on refining classic designs so pieces will work equally well in modern or traditional environments.
The Candella washstands are typified by the design of the legs, which feature elegantly shaped details. A towel bar and a storage shelf in toughened glass are practical yet well designed, lending a sense of hotel style to the bathroom. The Candella is available in two sizes; Candella 114 (45-1/8” W), which is topped with a sleek Mandello 114 Solo basin, or the Candella 100 (39-3/8” W), topped with a Victorian-inspired Lario 100 Solo basin.
The Metallo washstands are timeless design classics, with right angle tee joints that reference traditional bathroom pipework, looking equally at home in a more historic period bathroom or industrial-inspired scheme. Each washstand features a practical towel bar and a shelf for storage, finished in a tubular brass. The Metallo is available in two sizes; Metallo 114 (45-1/8” W), which is topped with a sleek Mandello 114 Solo basin, or the Metallo 100 (39-3/8” W), topped with a Victorian-inspired Lario 100 Solo basin.
The washstands are available with 0, 1 or 3 faucet holes so the designer or homeowner can choose faucets that best suits the bathroom’s design. The generous width of the basin tops means that there’s ample room for toiletries on the surface of the washstand, in addition to the storage shelf beneath. Each washstand also features an adjustable screw on the two legs for perfect levelling.
“We are proud to have developed a range of products that work in a wide range of contexts. Perfectly balanced between past and present, tradition and innovation, reinterpretation and modernity, the Candella and Metallo washstands represent a combination of classic shapes and contemporary design.” – Meneghello Paolelli Associati, 2018.
With their and chic silhouettes, Candella and Metallo are destined to be favorites among Victoria + Albert’s collection of bathroom furnishings. Learn more about these exceptional designs at vandabaths.com.
Watermark Designs never rests on its laurels, and the brand’s newest kitchen collection is another example of Watermark’s engineering prowess and willingness to re-invent and re-think faucet design. TOD is a kitchen faucet that incorporates linear valve technology into the handles to provide what is really the perfect solution for those home chefs and cooks working in kitchens.
“For a long time we have been thinking about how we could re-imagine the kitchen faucet,” said Avi Abel, president of Watermark Designs. “Traditionally, kitchen faucets are practical as far design, but not really decorative and we wanted to change that. So we designed the collection to have a slight industrial look and feel, and we completely re-imagined how the handles should function. Being able to turn the water off and on with the flick of your closed hand, rather than grasping handles makes it that much more of a professional-grade faucet, as well as being ADA compliant. That’s why linear valve technology is key.”
Along with the linear valve technology, TOD is designed with a number of extremely precise details:
- Diamond Knurling on the base of each piece – and they line up exactly
- Low profile/escutcheon but ‘beefy’ 1 1/4 diameter — making it a focal point
- Diamond Knurling is incorporated into the accessories (paper towel holder, etc)
- Available with two spout options – the ‘classic’ spout which is available in all 40 finishes and a pull-out spout available in 13 finishes
- Two types of handles – single lever (joystick) and widespread
Watermark Designs, the Brooklyn-based designers and manufacturers of plumbing fixtures and faucets, is once again redefining what custom faucetry means. If customization has become the hallmark of great design, Watermark Designs wants the industry to know that they’ve been making custom offerings standard for almost as long as they’ve been manufacturing in their factory in Brooklyn. Watermark’s new Elements collection is ratcheting up how faucet choices are determined – not by the manufacturer, but instead by the consumer. With innumerable combinations, Watermark introduces Elements.
“We’ve always considered our collections bespoke: customization is a hallmark of Watermark Designs,” says Avi Abel, president of Watermark. “As a smaller manufacturer, we are able to offer customers options, finishes and designs that you just cannot get in mass-produced factories. Our Elements collection is the continued evolution of how far we can go with custom designs. The materials, the finishes, the styling and even a website are all dedicated to the pursuit of tailored design.”
Elements with a variety of handle options.
The Elements collection is comprised of: Fourteen handle styles, which are called Covers and which were designed by the Watermark Designs Studio, are grouped into four material categories: Raw, Rock, Lumber and Forged.
Watermark Designs, the Brooklyn-based designers and manufacturers of faucets and fixtures for both residential and commercial projects, is kicking off a year-long celebration in honor of one of their most popular and brand-defining products: the Brooklyn faucet collection.
When Avi Abel met with Drew Stuart and Adam Rolston of Incorporated Architecture & Design (Inc.) about a project in New York, they weren’t fully aware of the significance that their collaborative design and resulting collection would ultimately have. As the faucet celebrates its 10th year, it has become symbolic of everything that Watermark Designs represents; designed and manufactured entirely in Brooklyn, there was never a doubt as to what the collection would be named: Brooklyn – the original.
Inspired by mid-century gate valves and the garden hoses used throughout New York City, the Brooklyn collection remains the finest example of Watermark Designs’ uncanny ability to manufacture industrial artifacts that emulate the artisanal borough from which they hail. Emblematic of its namesake city, the faucet was part of a display in the “Made in New York” installation at the Museum of the City of New York’s South Street Seaport Museum. Installed in thousands of residences and hotels worldwide, the Brooklyn collection radiates a distinct, historical style treasured by urban loyalists.
While there might be many Brooklyn look-alikes, Watermark Designs is the original designer and creator of the product. In July 2017, Watermark Designs became a member of Be Original Americas, a non-profit organization committed to informing, educating and influencing manufacturers, design professionals and individuals on the economic, ethical and environmental value of authentic design while preserving and investing in its future. Members are approved by a membership committee that reviews each applicant’s product designs and manufacturing history.
Be Original Americas understands that the value of authenticity cannot be underestimated or taken for granted in the marketplace.
“We’ve seen many of our designs ‘reworked’ and produced by larger manufacturers over the years, so aligning ourselves with an organization like Be Original Americas is important. It’s tremendously helpful to have them helping educate people about the value of authentic design, no matter the industry or product type,” said Avi Abel, president of Watermark Designs.
The Brooklyn faucet comes in a variety of finishes
As Brooklyn turns 10, Avi Abel decided to honor the faucet by teaming up with Watering Minds, an organization whose sole mission is to provide clean drinking water to children in Haiti. Throughout 2018, Watermark Designs will be donating a portion of Brooklyn collection proceeds to this important charity.
The celebration of the Brooklyn’s 10-year reign as an innovative and quintessentially New York product is coupled with Watermark Designs’ commitment to design authenticity and charitable giving. Their partnerships with Be Original Americas and Watering Minds position them as faucet forerunners and human rights conscious manufacturers as their characteristic collection hits the decade mark.
