A Century of Classics

New! Introducing Lefroy Brooks

now on display in the Belmont expanded decorative plumbing showroom.  

Timeless, classic design from Christo LeFroy Brooks.
A touch of nostalgia mixed with total luxury.  All of these artisan pieces have 
been carefully researched and recreated. 

From LeFroy Brooks -
 "have therefore taken on the task of researching this century of taps and selecting the great classics from each decade. From their domestic origins in the late Victorian era through the mechanical angularity of the Edwardians, the curvaceous turn of the century French, the colonial twenties, the Deco thirties, the streamline fifties, the starry sixties to the nineteen seventies when it all seemed to begin again."

We are very excited about showcasing these incredibly gorgeous bath fixtures to our customers, and would love the opportunity to show you all of the options available to create the bathroom of your dreams!

Watermark Designs Debuts ‘Blue’ Faucet

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Watermark Designs, the leading manufacturer of decorative plumbing
fixtures and bath accessories for more than 30 years, announced the debut of its most streamlined and advanced faucet collection to date: Blue.

Blue, with its round edges, curved lines and Swarovski crystal accents, is minimalism redefined: the two quarter-to-90-degree turning handles are secured to the valve via industrial strength rare earth magnets, eliminating the need for set screws that would disrupt the faucet’s clean lines. Plumbing professionals love the easy installation.

Blue features three different handle options: levers, cross-handles and dials—which have a tapering edge, becoming narrower from top to bottom and allowing for ease of grip.

“In the last few years, Watermark has been aggressively expanding its contemporary bath line for designers and homeowners who have a minimal aesthetic,” said Jody Rosenberg, president of sales and marketing for  Watermark Designs. “The use of rare earth magnets is a growing phenomenon, and we are proud to be on the leading edge of the innovation. Rare earths allow us
to maintain optimum functionality and sustainability – since they are a renewable energy source and hold their magnetic charge virtually forever. Because no set screws are needed, Blue is easily installed making it a win for installers. We are proud to continue the Watermark tradition of combining sleek style, function and quality craftsmanship with the Blue."
Like most faucet collections from Watermark Designs, Blue is available in 38 custom finishes, with the option of eco-smart water-saving features for fittings, including a 1.75 gpm aerated flowrestricting showerhead and a 1.5 gpm aerator for select faucets.
