With grey tones being found everywhere from fashion to nail polish, California Faucets' new Graphite (PVD) finish carries the trend into the bath. The bluish-gray tint of the new finish imparts a rustic, earth-metal feel in a traditional setting or a sleek industrial look in a modern design. The finish is both durable and tarnish-proof as a result of the physical vapor deposition (PVD) process, which infuses color by molecularly bonding the finish to the faucet, making it three to eight times harder than chrome. Graphite (PVD) is in the company’s premium finish category and ranges in price from $680 - $1,230 for a widespread faucet. On the Aliso faucet (pictured), Graphite lists for $1,000.
