California Faucets Proudly Unveils the Christopher Grubb Bath Collection.
California Faucets presents the Christopher Grubb Bath Collection—the company’s first faucet design series created alongside an interior designer. Grubb, an award-winning interior designer, television and radio personality, on-air host, educator, and product designer, infuses his signature architectural-inspired style into two classically elegant looks. Featuring the column-inspired Trousdale™ Series and the Doheny™ Series, which makes dynamic use of octagonal shapes and split finishes, the collection brings a fresh new take on transitional and contemporary styling, infusing modern luxury into a wide range of bath environments.
“A modern-day renaissance man, Christopher was a natural choice to collaborate with on the distinctively elegant new faucet series,” says Jeff Silverstein, California Faucets Chief Executive Officer. “His understanding of the luxury bath market is second-to-none, as he demonstrated with the previous four designs that he created for our patented StyleDrain® collection. Both Trousdale and Doheny are sure to further elevate our reputation for award-winning design.”
“The designs echo the luxury and quality that emanates while driving through Beverly Hills—a place where celebrity homes designed by top architects can be found in every style from contemporary to traditional to transitional,” says Grubb, who has been creating memorable baths through his design firm, Arch-Interiors, Inc., for nearly 30 years.
Joining California Faucets wide repertoire of luxurious award-winning lavatory faucets, the Christopher Grubb Series encompasses two exclusive designs: Trousdale and Doheny. Both exemplify Grubb’s expertise with a variety of design styles, along with his ability to harmoniously blend a wide range of design elements into fresh new looks. And since both series offer an array of coordinated accessories, designers and homeowners alike can carry a cohesive design statement throughout the bath.
Inspired by classic architectural columns, the highly adaptable Trousdale Series is part contemporary, part timeless traditional. An elegant fluting detail, which represents the power, grace, and majesty of columns used throughout history, is found on the spout base, handles, and accessories. Paired with either cross or lever handles, the rhythm and symmetry of the fluting lends a timeless feel. The distinctive style is further elevated with California Faucets 25-plus artisan finishes. Choose a satin finish to elegantly enhance the fine fluting details or change the mood with a darker, burnished finish for an industrial flair.
Childhood memories of building blocks and dynamic geometric shapes served as Grubb’s inspiration for the Doheny Series. With its unique octagonal design—a shape that represents a connection between the physical and spiritual world—the design calls to mind the architecture of churches, mosques, and temples built throughout history. More recently, Art Deco, Bauhaus, and Mid-Century design movements also made use of the octagon—a shape that’s highly valued in Feng Shui since it’s believed to balance energy and prosperity. A unique banding detail on the Doheny Series adds depth and texture while giving the option to choose a split finish configuration. With endless possible finish combinations, Doheny blends seamlessly with virtually any bath design.
Like all California Faucets products, the Christopher Grubb Lavatory Collection is made to order in California Faucets’ Huntington Beach, California factory. Pricing for the Trousdale Collection starts at $1,159 in polished chrome. Doheny starts at $1,479 in polished chrome.
