Watermark Designs showcased the following five new products at this year's recently concluded ICFF Show:

  • The Brut, designed by O & G Studio, is a bold new collection, resulting from experimenting with textures. The creation involves two completely different polishing processes to create unique finish combinations. Available in 24 different finishes, Brut’s spout exterior is smooth and polished, but the underside is earthy and rough-hewn.
  • The Rainey Collection (pictured) was created in partnership with Mark Zeff (who also collaborated on the H-Line Collection in 2014). This collection embodies the best of Austin, Texas’s eclectic sensibilities. The spout and handles are available with or without Watermarks’ signature diamond knurling.
  • The Lilly Collection has three distinct designs: a dimple pattern, an ogee or mermaid scale pattern, or a diamond pattern. Each faucet is double-machined and double-plated to ensure a perfect finish. The distinctive finish combinations are available in chrome, white, matte black and satin brass with inlays of polished brass, polished copper, polished gold and polished nickel. 
  • Also new this year are electric, heated towel bars. These bars are free-floating, available with rounded or square bases, have customizable lengths and can be made in any of Watermark’s 24 finishes.
  • Mini-thermostatic valves will be available this year as well, and available in 1, 2 or 3-outlet versions. These elegant valves will be available in all of Watermark’s finishes and just as easy to install as regular-sized valves.

The New Bel Canto Single Hole E3 Cylinder Handle from California Faucets

California Faucets expands its Bel Canto single-hole lavatory faucet collection with the E3 Cylinder Handle, an option that eliminates the lever handle for a fully modern, streamlined look. A geometric juxtaposition, the Bel Canto series marries an elegant, elongated cylinder stem with a crisp, thin rectangular spout and lever handles. By eliminating the lever, the new Cylinder Handle artfully preserves those overall design elements while further modernizing and simplifying the appearance.

The Cylinder Handle is a small hub atop the faucet stem, identical and nearly seamless in shape. Users push the hub to operate the faucet and move it left or right to adjust the temperature. The handle can be specified in the same finish as the rest of the faucet, or, for a striking contrast, in an elegant finish such as matte black.

Like other Bel Canto models, the faucet’s unique spout delivers water in a vertical sheet for a cool waterfall effect, furthering its status as a modern art piece. The single-hole faucet comes in two sizes: a tall 14-7/8” overall height or a more compact 8-1/2” overall height. Twenty-eight finishes are available, including satin nickel, burnished brass, carbon, French gold, matte black and white.

Dezi Home's New Shelved Paper Holders

Besides smartphones, the Dezi shelf design is an ideal spot to keep tablets, keys, wallets, handbags, or other small items. It’s an especially helpful place to rest flushable wet naps, a staple in many bathrooms today. Moreover, a choice of three different styles - Harmoni Series shelf with elegant frosted glass, Harmoni Series shelf with sleek standard metal shelf, and the Simpliciti Series with a double paper holder - allows homeowners and designers to carry their design vision throughout the bath. Just like all Dezi Home bath accessories, the paper holder/shelf combinations come in five decorative finishes including polished chrome, polished nickel, satin nickel, Old World Bronze and matte black. The sleek and modern design perfectly coordinates with all Dezi Home bath accessories for a completely coordinated look in the bath.
