(Huntington Beach, CA, February 25, 2016)—California Faucets brings signature Italian style to the modern kitchen with the debut of its Poetto Series Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet. Introduced along with The Kitchen Collection, the company’s long-awaited sophisticated new series of designer kitchen faucets, Poetto combines sleek modern Italian design with American craftsmanship. Available in a selection of more than 30 artisan finishes, including the world’s first stainless steel PVD finish Ultra Stainless Steel™, the Poetto features a minimalist, uninterrupted silhouette. Plus, like every faucet in The Kitchen Collection, Poetto offers a full range of matching accessories—just one of the many reasons for The Kitchen Collection’s recent wins in the Best of Year Awards by Interior Design as well as The Product Innovator Awards by Kitchen & Bath Business.

“By offering not only the faucet but also a full ensemble of accessories to go with it, we’re fulfilling a niche not addressed by most kitchen faucet lines,” explains Jeff Silverstein, President and CEO of California Faucets. Designed to create a complete kitchen sink ensemble, Poetto’s complementary accessories include a pull-down prep/bar faucet, hot and cold water dispensers, soap dispenser, air activation switch for disposer, and air gap. “Though our kitchen collection is just out of the starting gate, the reception by our select dealers has been immediate and truly gratifying. We are also finding that, as with our bath line, our ability to customize and fully suite products has made specifying our line especially appealing to the design community,” adds Noah Taft, California Faucets Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales.

For added personalization, the Poetto Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet features a choice of either tall or short handles, each with a dramatic matte black finish option. Just like California Faucets lavatory faucets, the Poetto Series kitchen faucet comes in 30 decorative finishes, including 15 PVD finishes with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.

Another feature that illustrates special attention to quality and detail is the Poetto’s pull-down spray head. Including a magnetic docking for easy return, it offers seamless toggling back and forth between single stream and spray modes. In addition, whereas most manufacturers offer spray heads made of plastic, California Faucets instead uses solid brass for this commonly cheapened faucet element.

Pricing for The Poetto Series begins at $875 for the Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet in Polished Chrome.
