Timely Updates in Luxury Decorative Plumbing

Given the recent uptick in Kitchen-related queries, this issue highlights designer brands with new indoor and outdoor kitchen products. Elevating #HomeOffice kitchens to the next level also takes the right lighting – another expanding category at DJ Bath Plus. These products, along with the new Bertch displays, are now at the showroom. And, besides upcoming price books updates, a reminder that, if you prefer a private consultation (plus dedicated parking inside the building), just let us know.

Spotlight on Franz Viegener

Not only does Franz Viegener produce beautiful bathroom faucets, they also produce beautiful kitchen faucets that won 2020 GOOD DESIGN® Awards.

The result of engineering prowess combined with innovative and cutting edge design, Franz Viegener's elegant sculptural products go far beyond the utilitarian, and are available at DJ Bath Plus – a long-time provider of Franz Viegener products to the Bay Area(Pictured is the single handle deck mount kitchen mixer with pullout sprayer from the Kitchen Collection, FV412.02/K5, in polished chrome.)

If in need of additional details about these, or the other Franz Viegener products displayed in the Showroom, including customization information, please contact Kate Brady (Showroom General Manager, 415-864-0850 and kate.brady@genpl.com).

New Product – Mila Sinks

Mila International believes that "style, form, and function are the pillars of great design." Given that focus, DJ Bath Plus is happy to announce the introduction of Mila's true flush mount stainless steel kitchen sinks to the San Francisco Showroom.

Along with the uniqueness and refinement of these fixtures, Mila's flush mount system eliminates the edge or lip seen with other installation methods. Technical aspects aside, the results are simple, beautiful and innovative products for the kitchen, of the highest quality, and that also allow for creativity. (Pictured is the Atelier Entertainment sink, MES-501SB, in satin brushed stainless steel.)

To learn about these new products and see if they would be a fit for your project, please contact Matt Hooper (Inside & Outside Sales Account Executive, 925-207-8769 and matt.hooper@genpl.com).

 

New Design – Cal Faucets

California Faucets does not promise that their new squeeze handle design makes washing dishes fun. They do, though, accept responsibility for introducing innovative, comfortable and convenient kitchen faucets, inspired by professional restaurant kitchens, to the home environment.

With a squeeze handle and pull-down sprayer for easy one-handed operation, these powerful, gorgeously handcrafted faucets (of solid brass construction) provide multiple handle options and are available in 28 artisan finishes. And, all can be customized for unique home kitchens. (Pictured is the Corsano Culinary Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet, K51-150-XX, in polished chrome.)

To learn more about this new handle design, including options, styles and customization, please contact Chava Chavela (Lead Sales Residential Account Executive, 415-684-7269 and chava.chavela@genpl.com) for assistance.

Anti-Microbial Copper

Since copper and its alloys are capable of destroying viruses and bacteria, the DJ Bath Plus Team has received quite a bit of interest in products made with this metal, particularly those on display from Native Trails. (Pictured is the Farmhouse 33 Apron-Front Kitchen Sink, CPK273, in antique copper.)

Along with the beauty of the master coppersmiths' work showcased in Native Trails kitchen designs, these ample single-bowl sinks are forged of high-quality recycled copper, and will become well-loved heirlooms that retain their beauty for generations. Available in different finishes, these new classics also come with a lifetime warranty.

If considering adding some of this protective material to your home or project, or would like information about these and other Native trails kitchen and bath products, please contact Kate Brady (Showroom General Manager, 415-864-0850 and kate.brady@genpl.com).

 

New Brand – Foster

Foster Milano is the latest to join the roster of brands at DJ Bath Plus. While not yet on display, we are happy to promote Foster's Finalmente kitchen unit – where the great outdoors meets the refined, stainless steel functionality of an indoor, mobile kitchen.

Combining great practicality, elegance and the heft to withstand the elements, the Finalmente kitchen may seem a steel monolith when closed. But, as befits its Italian design heritage, this unit transforms into a complete kitchen (with Ognidove hobs and ovens) when opened. Whether entertaining seaside or simply enjoying a relaxing home-cooked meal on the patio, this movable unit provides a unique solution for creating a kitchen environment as needed. (Pictured is the Finalmente gas hobs cooking station.)

Given their recent onboarding, plus the variety of options, accessories and other details that can be customized, for additional information on this and other Foster products, please contact Kate Brady (Showroom General Manager, 415-864-0850 and kate.brady@genpl.com).

Expanding Lighting Offerings

Along with carrying the other primary metallic bathroom elements, DJ Bath Plus also wants to ensure you can select all elements of a bathroom and kitchen project in concert, rather than having to go elsewhere for lighting.

To that end the Showroom displays lighting-specific brands, such as Eurofase Lighting, (chandeliers, pendants, wall mounts and more), Elk Lighting (chandeliers, pendants, island lights and vanity lights) and Mitzi (chandeliers, pendants, sconces and more). We are also adding new products from current brands, to provide a greater range of unique pieces that complement the fine plumbing products DJ Bath Plus sells.

As we are expanding our lineup, if there is a particular product you would like us to carry, or need information about the brands listed above, please contact Kate Brady (Showroom General Manager, 415-864-0850 and kate.brady@genpl.com).

New Displays – Bertch

Recently arrived in the Showroom are the new Bertch vanity displays. As a semi-custom line, Bertch offers, along with many other designer touches, both Walnut and Quarter Sawn Oak – woods less commonly found through other brands.

In cherishing the art of traditional cabinetmaking, Bertch utilizes only the finest wood, joinery techniques and finishes. By also focusing on reforestation, recycling and respecting the environment, this duality of craftsmanship and thoughtfulness results in distinctive and sustainable cabinetry and other products that beautify the home. (Pictured is the the Arcadia vanity, in White Ash.)

If you need details regarding the variety of finishes and sizes that would best fit your project, or for help with additional customization or other Bertch products, please contact Jim Logan (Inside Sales Account Executive, 415-320-2867 and james.logan@genpl.com).

Final Price Books Reminder 

To help those in the Trade who have bids out (with many price books changes taking effect in March), we wanted to send out a reminder that DJ Bath Plus will honor 2020 prices for thirty days after the increase takes effect

Given the time-sensitive nature of this policy change, we recommend  following up with our Sales Team as soon as possible, before prices go up. While difficult to predict changes beforehand, chances are their expertise and experience could be helpful in ensuring your bids and projects stay on track.

Personalized Consultations & More
