Style Watch 2012: California Faucets’ Art Deco Revival

California Faucets Art Deco Collection™ revives a romantic design movement in elegant style

July 17, 2012 | Product Release

Deco Moderne™(HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA, JULY 17, 2012) The Art Deco Collection™ revives a glamorous era when the popular Parisian design style crossed the Atlantic and swept the nation, from New York City to Hollywood. The influence of art deco in the US during the 1920s and 1930s comes alive once again in three faucet designs by California Faucets. Classic Moderne, Empire Moderne, and Deco Moderne designer faucets celebrate the essence of a time of prosperity and optimism in American history that spawned the Roaring Twenties and the art deco design movement.

The collection speaks to a sense of retro-inspired art deco style designed by a Made in CA company to revive the elegance and glamour of Hollywood’s yesteryear. The geometric curves, linear symmetry, and bold contrast in materials and colors that marked the eclectic art deco design movement are highlighted in the collection, which includes Matte Black handles and sleek Polished Nickel finish. As today’s economic conditions turn entertainment focus inward, the Art Deco Collection aims to fulfill the needs of nesting interior design aficionados in search of more ornamental designs.

Classic Moderne™
Inspired by the neoclassical architecture that influenced art deco design, Classic Moderne displays a graceful, low-arc spout that is subtly contoured. Its curves draw stylish contrast to the hex escutcheons and handles with sleek metal index buttons.

Empire Moderne™
Empire Moderne takes its inspiration from Manhattan’s art deco designed Chrysler Building. Its tall, streamlined spout towers symmetrically over geometric handles to create a distinctive range of counterbalance.

Deco Moderne™
Deco Moderne is inspired by Cubist art, such as that of Pablo Picasso. The spout and wide spread lever handles are curved to facets and planes that allow light to reflect images in an avant-garde manner.

The Art Deco collection features Polished Nickel (PVD) with Matte Black. List price for the 8" widespread Classic Moderne faucet is $755. The Empire Moderne faucet lists for $890. And the Deco Moderne faucet is $668.
