Three Kitchen Faucets Home Chefs Love

Equal parts form and function, just add water.

So Californian, They’re even Made at the Beach

Huntington Beach-based firm California Faucets has introduced a versatile new series to their kitchen collections. Called Descanso, the line centers on a magnetically docking, pull-down faucet that melds industrial details and sleek styling for a supremely functional fixture. Hash mark-textured knurling on the handles reference power tools and also improves grip. There are customizable options, too: Choose the black carbon fiber detailing (the same material used in building Formula 1 race cars and racing bicycles) for an edgier statement, or opt for the smooth handles that create a more minimalist look. Coordinating accessories include a pull-down prep/bar faucet, hot and cold water dispensers, a pot filler, a soap dispenser, and air-activation switch and gaps for the disposer. Descanso also has a companion line for bathrooms. Like all of California Faucets solid-brass designs, the line is available in 30-plus artisan finishes, guaranteed not to tarnish.

Calling all Cooks and Cocktailians

Graff kicks the traditional silhouette of a bridge faucet up a notch with the clean, curvilinear lines of Sospiro. And they’ve also cleverly adapted the design to bar/prep sinks, falling right in line with the reemerging trend in home design for custom cocktail and coffee bars. Taking on a narrower form than its sister version, the Sospiro bar fixture packs all the power of a kitchen faucet, thanks to its pull-down design. Choose from four finishes: polished chrome, brushed nickel, polished nickel and olive bronze.
