THG is expanding beyond the bath and into the kitchen with its Traditionelle series of faucets that offers four distinct options, each taking inspiration from a past era. The 1900 features a high-spout bridge construction and bright white porcelain indicating the “hot” and “cold” cross handles. The deck-mounted Bastide model offers a curved spout and cylindrical base with choices available in one- or two-valve designs. Rim-mounted Alliance with spoke-style handles can be specified as a single- and two-hole kitchen basin version, as well as a pot-filler with an adjustable and rotating spout. Montmartre (pictured), named in honor of the area of Paris that was home to the Impressionists, is topped with a curved spout that is bounded by classically inspired finials. The cylindrical base appears to be on a diagonal, integrating a lever-style mixing valve as well as a universal combined mixer.
