Going a bit gold

Yesterday, apart from sneak peeks behind the scenes at what Kohler sees as some of the emerging trends in kitchens and bath, I was struck by how much I actually do love their new gold finishes. To go by the proper name this is Vibrant Moderne Gold, available in faucets in both brushed and polished finishes which, btw, looks absolutely smashing with their new satin-y Honed White glaze for sinks and toilets. I never thought gold would really do it for me, but the warmth of this new tone is way different from all that polished brass that we've trying to get rid of for years.

The hi-tech articulated Karbon Faucet now comes in the new gold finishes, a bronze and a stainless steel and chrome with black detailing as well as all their standard finishes. In other words there's a Karbon for everyone, lol. This interesting dude is currently available in a deck mount and wall mount for the kitchen but we heard (which is very cool) that they'll be expanding Karbon into bathroom faucets too. Take a boo at the snaps below, and let that gold sink in a bit, pardon the pun. And take a look at the Karbon in chrome in my kitchen here.
