December 08, 2006 | Product Release

(Huntington Beach, CA, December 8, 2006) California Faucets’ CARDIFF Series faucet displays royal class. This faucet combines Old World charm with New World style. Classic English design sets the mood whether washing up for afternoon tea and crumpets or after dinner before plopping down in front of the telly.

Made from solid brass and state-of-the-art ceramic disk valves carrying a lifetime guarantee, CARDIFF’s tubular low-arc spout is flanked by blade handles with “HOT” and “COLD” labeled white porcelain buttons perched atop a hexagonal base. Adornment is subtle with double-ringed trim encircling the base of the spout and handles. The lift knob rests atop a contoured surface at the rear of the spout.

And like every faucet from California Faucets, the CARDIFF Series mixes and matches with 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 a design uniquely yours. Instead of the standard CARDIFF spout and handle set in Polished Chrome, for example, substitute HUMBOLDT Series teardrop handles and select the Weathered Copper finish (see photo). Or swap out the spout with the ENCINITAS Series and try it in Satin Nickel. Perhaps combining the CARDIFF spout with VENICE Series handles is a better mate for your taste. No matter what your style, be assured the design possibilities are nearly endless.

CARDIFF series’ mix and match options are also complemented by a selection from coordinating shower, tub, accessory, and trim. Add luxury to elegance. Indulge in thethermostatic shower or Roman tub set with CARDIFF.

In an 8” widespread, CARDIFF lists for $429 in Polished Chrome and $536 in PolishedBrass (PVD). The CARDIFF widespread lists for $579 in one of California Faucets’ special finishes, such as Espresso Bronze or Weathered Copper. In a premium finish, including 24K Polished Gold or Lifetime Satin Gold (PVD) and Black Nickel (PVD), the widespread lists for $686. Select finishes feature PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) for a super-hard, durable surface with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.
