I was at an event that Luxe Interiors + Design hosted at the Thos. Somerville showroom in Chevy Chase last night, and guests were asked to cast their vote: Which new faucet from Kohler’s Artifacts line should they start stocking? We all placed chips in one of three boxes for these designs:
SO, which faucet would you want in your bathroom? I have to say I struggled with this, but my eye kept going to the gear-looking faucet. I really like the matte-brass finish, and there’s something refreshing and industrial-funky about it. And the faucet itself looks like a genie bottle.
But there’s a saying among manufacturers that the product editors love to feature in their magazines never sell in real life.
With my real-life hat on, I would say the classic chrome faucet will win — it’s probably got a more universal appeal that will sell better.
Which one do you like? Post a comment, and when I find out who the winner is (hopefully later today), I will post my own comment to let you know.
