California Faucets



La Jolla, and Sausalito too . . .

(Huntington Beach, CA, August 10, 2006) Sound like a west coast twist on “Manhattan,” the song Frank Sinatra popularized?  Well, not exactly.  It’s California Faucets’ MANHATTAN series.  And like every faucet in the line, you can customize it by mixing and matching components from any other series. It’s called Custom Faucetry™ and it allows you to combine any spout with any handle, in any finish, to create your own unique design vision.

The California Faucets’ series are named after beach communities that flank the Golden State along its sunny, 1,200-mile coastline. Each faucet series is as unique as its namesake. Each makes a distinct statement. And when spouts and handles are mixed and matched between series, the statement becomes yours. Your personal design. Your creation. Even mixed and matched, flow and symmetry go uninterrupted. California Faucets has captured the essence of this symmetrical grace from the diverse California beach towns that encourage individualism, but still harmonize as one—undeniably California. There’s no place on earth like Manhattan Beach. And no design is more a paradigm of its aura than the MANHATTAN series.

MANHATTAN’s design is contemporary-minimalist. Its flat, high-arc C-spout, reminiscent of a surfer’s dream tube, reveals slender, graceful lines complemented by smooth, ergonomic cylinder handles. But streamlined doesn’t have to mean delicate. The MANHATTAN series exudes strength, like the lean runners, cyclists, and skaters zipping down The Strand.

You don’t have to take MANHATTAN in Polished Chrome as shown in catalogs and showrooms. Mix and match means you can take the MANHATTAN spout with La Jolla handles. You can try it in California Faucet’s exclusive Satin Rose Bronze (PVD) finish instead. If that doesn’t suit you, you can create a combination from any of 20 spouts, 46 handles, and 34 finishes. You can even split finishes for a two-tone look. Get as creative as you want. Imagination and time are your only limit.

MANHATTAN series’ mix and match options are augmented by coordinating shower, tub, accessory, and trim options. Take MANHATTAN with the thermostatic shower. Or how about the Roman tub set?

In an 8" widespread, MANHATTAN lists for $453 in Polished Chrome and $566 in Polished Brass (PVD). The MANHATTAN widespread lists for $611 in one of California Faucets’ special finishes, such as Espresso Bronze. In a premium finish, including 24K Polished Gold or Lifetime Satin Gold (PVD) and Black Nickel (PVD), the widespread lists for $724. Select finishes feature PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) for a super-hard, durable surface with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.
