Rachel’s Top 5 Vintage Faucet Collections for a Charming Home
The charming aesthetic that vintage décor presents causes a stir inside of me that makes me jump with delight. Subdued tones, rustic woods, and the delicate curvature of vintage items creates a relaxing environment that which allows creativity to run rampant. Overall, a nostalgic feeling is prevalent with this décor pattern. Kingston Brass is one of the leading producers of vintage products within the plumbing industry. For a bathroom transformed into an elegant spa oasis, with all of the nostalgia of country vibes or regal halls, try one of its traditional collections. The following are my personal top five collections that contain my favorite vintage and traditional faucets:
No. 5 – A juxtaposition of timeless British panache and Victorian flair are coalesced to create the Bel-Air collection. A top to bottom design goes into each of this collection’s signature styles. Elegantly designed escutcheons, gracefully arching spouts, and white or metal porcelain lever handles create the true indicators of Bel-Air. Even the finial atop the pop-up rod will remind you of tea time in London. This collection conveys a timeless design glamorized by early 20th century elements to be a beautiful statement piece blending in with your traditional décor.
No. 4 – Alluring curved lever handles elevate the design of your home to a more polished and elite look. Personally, I love how the American Classic collection can be paired with a multitude of styles all while giving a nod to the traditional aesthetic of the Victorian Era. This classic design upgrades your entire bathroom ensemble with its stately characteristics. Teardrop-shaped handles and ridged handle tips attribute to the quintessence of the American Classic collection.
No. 3 – For a space transformed with the spirit of the Victorian era, the Essex collection brings forth a vintage lavishness with its unique design elements. Magnificent clawfoot tub fillers with telephone style hand showers will allow you to feel as though you have truly escaped to an oasis filled with pampering. Elegant, yet simple cross handles featuring porcelain tips adorn these faucets for a splash of extravagance. In turn, their angular spouts retain a modern, yet antique impression. Try one of their wall mount, basin, or tub filler faucets for a charming and impressionable washing station with classical grace.
No. 2 – I have always dreamt of preparing for my day in true luxury. Living as the royals do is an unentertained notion for most of us. With the Duchess collection manifesting exemplary craftsmanship with inspiration founded from English nobility, it is conceivable. Enchanting black porcelain handles are a staple design element of the collection while the spout bodies present an elegant grandeur. These black handles will create a bold pop of color that adds a bit of elitist flair. This will pair beautifully with a lighter background and in a bathroom that plays off of the black hues. Surely, your castle will be made complete and it is guaranteed that your faucet will look as good as you do with this collection.
No. 1 – Adorn your home with the dainty characteristics of the French Country collection. Allow it to let your mind wander to the roaming hills and greenery of Gorges du Verdon, France or the provincial Colmar. Cross handles, which are typically paired with traditional décor, are developed in this collection. A slight downward curvature of these metal handles creates a more feminine mystique, embellishing the vintage home. A perfect combination of European antiquity and contemporary fabrication is presented.
