California Faucets is Designers’ Choice at Pasadena Showcase

July 10, 2013

California Faucets’ shower fittings and faucets were used in four different baths in the 2013 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. The event, held annually in Pasadena, Calif., since 1965, displays products that represent the latest in modern bath amenities.

The baths, along with the rest of the rooms in the showcase house, featured design trends and techniques by ASID-affiliated designers. “We chose California Faucets products for The Bedroom Suite bathroom, because we wanted something modern with an element of the traditional,” said Stephanie Leese, designer for L2 Interiors in Los Angeles. “Everything in the bedroom leans contemporary, but we brought in traditional materials and retro patterns, and we wanted to carry out this theme in the bath with more classic, Euro-style fixtures.”

In the Bedroom Suite bath, StyleTherm was installed with a dual outlet integral diverter, as well as an independent diverter. “This allows you to have three different devices in one shower – in this case, a showerhead, handshower and tub filler – yet still comply with stringent CALGreen codes because they won’t operate simultaneously,” said Noah Taft, senior vice president of sales and marketing for California Faucets.

In the Symphony Suite, where StyleTherm was also installed, the designer’s setting included the Humboldt series faucet, which features a teardrop-handled design that evokes early 20th-century style. The choices made for this children’s bath illustrate the benefits of installing a thermostatic shower into a secondary bathroom. The system includes anti-scald temperature protection with a safety temperature override button, an ideal feature for parents of young children.
