(Huntington Beach, CA, December 8, 2010)—California Faucets wins the prestigious Interior Design Best of Year (BOY) Award for its innovative CeraLine™ linear shower drain system in the highly competitive Bath Accessories and Hardware category. CeraLine beat out an impressive field of entries and was ultimately selected by interior designers and architects via an online vote, as well as a jury of leading architects and designers. The online voting drew over 24,000 designers.

The iconic light bulb Interior Design BOY trophy was presented during the awards ceremony held on December 2, 2010 at the equally iconic Frank Gehry-designed IAC Building in New York City.The award is the second from Interior Design, having presented California Faucets with an award for its patent-pending StyleDrain® in 2009. “Two consecutive awards from Interior Design is especially gratifying given the publication’s reputation in the design community.” states California Faucets president and CEO, Jeff Silverstein. “We attribute our growth during this challenging economic climate to our ongoing introduction of innovative products like CeraLine, our patent-pending StyleDrain, and StyleTherm™, our ground-breaking new thermostatic shower system.”

Winner of six international design awards, including the prestigious Red Dot Award and Good Design Award, CeraLine is celebrated throughout Europe and Asia for its sleek, minimalist styling that allows for curb-free, fully accessible shower entry. Its clean lines enhance contemporary baths, as well as those outfitted in more traditional décor. CeraLine’s stainless steel construction includes unrivaled height-adjustment features that ensure perfectly level installation every time.

CeraLine comes in three cover-plate trim styles. Metro Trim displays a less-is-more profile for a simple, graceful effect, while Edge Trim features an extra stainless steel veneer for a crisp, streamlined look. And for a fine, integrated appearance that is nearly seamless, Custom Trim can be set with tile to match the flooring décor.

List prices start at $859 in Stainless Steel, and include drain rough and decorative trim.
