Meet Queen Charlotte: Brizo

What do I love about this sensual two-handle wide-spread faucet? It comes in black. That's right, I said black. Well, okay, it's more of a dark cocoa, but seriously, who cares. No one else is doing it. Maybe it's my childhood influence, or OCD need for a hermetically sealed cleansing space, I seem to much prefer Brizo's Charlotte in chrome.

The transitional CharlotteTM bath collection features flowing lines and classical elegance throughout a full suite. Bold symmetry, fused with rich details, provides an aura of instant sophistication to any bath.

The inspiration for the collection lies in the Art Deco movement, which is well known for its bold linear symmetry, lavish designs, and opulent style. The scalloped handles on the lavatory faucets add a layering detail often seen in ornate art deco buildings and sculptures.

The Charlotte collection serves as the platform for the launch of the new Brizo Cocoa Bronze™ finish, which features warm, dark bronze tones. The finish adds to the luxury of the Charlotte collection’s transitional design and is the perfect complement to the suite’s polished nickel accents.

“A trend we continue to see is a warmer color palette that can be used on fixtures ranging from traditional to modern,” said Judd Lord, director of industrial design for the Brizo brand. “The Cocoa Bronze finish was specifically introduced so that any Brizo design can project an air of warmth and friendliness to the space, ultimately complementing the overall environment.”

I recently picked up a master ensuite project, the first in a very long time, and I think that this lavatory faucet is exactly what the young couple are looking for. Bathrooms have not gone the way of the Dodo bird, they're back and better than ever.
