GRAFF Featured in Latest Faucet Trends l Freshome
Take a Look at the Latest Faucet Trends from Industry Leaders
Perhaps nowhere is the marriage between form and function more apparent than in faucets. In your kitchen and bathrooms, and even in your laundry room or at your bar, faucets are not only practical, but can also be pieces of art. You may still be in the valley of decision regarding hardwood floors in kitchens and bathrooms, and whether farmhouse sinks are still trendy or if the kitchen work triangle is an outdated design rule. However, after you read what the industry experts at several of the top companies told Freshome about the latest faucet trends and designs, your only faucet decision will be which one to choose.
“From coast to coast, we are seeing a rapid shift in faucet style preferences, with the market moving away from traditional styles and toward contemporary silhouettes and finishes,” according to Celine Marcotte, business development manager at GRAFF. “What we call living finishes, which age over time, are immensely popular, with Brushed Brass being particularly popular, along with Gunmetal and Rose Gold,” she adds.
GRAFF’s Vintage collection pays homage to the historic Chicago Fire Department Illinois Fire Safety Alliance. It draws inspiration from the design of fire hose nozzles, with a modern spout and bold handles.
GRAFF’s Incanto collection also fits into its maximalist design style. “Maximalism is an evolving term and in today’s context, it has become a product that evokes glamour and opulence. It can be minimal in shape, but made maximalist by its hue or finish. A product can be minimal in one respect, such as its shape, but made maximalist by its finish or hue,” she says. “For example,” she continues, “GRAFF’s Incanto faucet in Rose Gold is maximalist in style and minimalist in form.”
