Victoria + Albert Baths Introduces New Unlacquered Brass Finishes for 2017
TORONTO (June 15, 2017) - Some things really do improve over time. Introducing the new unlacquered brass finishes from Victoria + Albert Baths. After making an impressive resurgence in popularity from their peak in the 90s, brass fixtures are among the hottest trends in bathroom design with today’s styles showcasing a warmer and more sophisticated vibe than the bold brass of decades past.
Victoria + Albert is pleased to meet customer requests for this exciting trend with a beautiful new unlacquered brass finish that is now available for all Florin and Staffordshire faucets.
Known as a “living finish”, unlacquered brass ages naturally, developing a unique patina over the lifespan of the fixture. The absence of lacquer allows the durable solid brass to gradually darken and reveal subtle undertones of colour and texture.
The evolving look may be used to create a feeling of “Old World” elegance in a traditional setting or to contrast with the clean lines of contemporary décor. If desired, the finish can be maintained in a polished state with the regular use of a metal cleaner. The Florin and Staffordshire Collections are smart choices to showcase this exceptional new finish, each making its own distinctive statement.
The Staffordshire line celebrates “New Traditional” design and its graceful combination of classic styles and modern lines, while Florin faucets capture the essence of the Art Deco aesthetic in a fresh way. Both collections are available in a wide range of faucet designs for the tub, basin and shower, making it easy to create a cohesive look that is pulled together down to the drains and foot finishes on the clawfoot tub. All of Victoria + Albert’s faucets are made in the UK using traditional techniques.
