Timely Updates in Luxury Decorative Plumbing


Besides acting as a post-Holidays greeting from DJ Bath Plus, this issue contains information on two upcoming virtual events (inaugural DPHA Member Roundtable and Claybrook Introduction Week). In addition Franz Viegener won awards for collections featured in the Showroom, new GRAFF products are now available, and there's an update to our price books policy. We continue to welcome walk-ins, and if you need to book a private appointment – plus dedicated parking inside the building – just let us know.


Scheduled for Wednesday

The Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association (DPHA) is rolling out quarterly Member Roundtables via Zoom, with the inaugural session scheduled for this Wednesday (January 13th), from 2-4pm EST.

These sessions are a great opportunity to chat with other members, including Kate Brady (DJ Bath Plus Showroom General Manager, and past DPHA President), who will be attending this session, which addresses challenges members face from the recent COVID surge.

Set up so participants can attend the entire Roundtable session, or just the segments needed, to take part please register ahead of time using the registration form. And, to suggest topics or participate in future panels, please contact:


Claybrook Introduction Week

As the exclusive seller of Claybrook Interiors bathware in Northern California, DJ Bath Plus will be holding a Zoom training event for members of the Trade and their clients, at 11am, on January 26th (Tuesday) and 28th (Thursday).

Topics will cover products in the recently finished Showroom display, encompassing twenty collections that include tailor-made items from hand-finished marble, proprietary MarbleForm® molded stone technology and timeless mosaic designs. In keeping with their reputation as The Stone Specialists, this array of beautiful objects from Claybrook is the result of melding advanced technology with premium raw materials, to create artisanal, flawless and bespoke products.

Please contact Emily Spear (Claybrook Residential Sales Manager, to RSVP. And, for Showroom appointments regarding this line, please contact Kate Brady (DJ Bath Plus Showroom General Manager,


Congratulations to Franz Viegener!

In late December, the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd., presented Franz Viegener with two 2020 GOOD DESIGN® Awards for their Kitchen Collection and Seven Collection. And, we say well deserved!

Always going far beyond the utilitarian with their collections, the faucets of the Kitchen Collection are comprised of elegantly curved modern lines complemented by powerful performance (the single handle deck mount kitchen mixer with pullout sprayer, in polished chrome, FV412.02/K5, is pictured above). Not to be outdone, the Seven Collection, with its ultra-slim, perpendicular profile and minimalist design, is the result of engineering prowess combined with innovative and cutting edge design.

Both are available at DJ Bath Plus (which is proud to have been a long-time provider of Franz Viegener products to the Bay Area). For additional information about these, or the other Franz Viegener products displayed in the Showroom, please contact Matt Hooper (Inside & Outside Sales Account Executive, 925-207-8769 and

Showcasing GRAFF

DJ Bath Plus recently received the GRAFF Tephi bathtubs (pictured above in Gloss White Finish). Crafted from state-of-the-art casting technology and artisanal processes, the Sleek-Stone® composite material (dolomitic minerals, from the Italian Alps and Dolomites mountain range, bonded with a unique resin) results in sophisticated products designed not only for molecular endurance, but also beauty.

Resistant to UV, scratches, impacts, mold and mildew, stains, and thermal shock, this sleek and practical line can also be customized to your project's specifications. As the only showroom in San Francisco displaying this freestanding bathtub (plus GRAFF sinks), we invite you to view these products in person.

To learn more about this collection and other GRAFF fixtures, including customization options, please contact Chava Chavela (Lead Sales Residential Account Executive, 415-684-7269 and for assistance.


Price Books Updates 

While the majority of new price books will come out in February and March, many price books changed on January 1st. For those in the Trade who have bids out, we recommend checking before prices go up. Since predicting changes may not always be feasible ahead of time, to help in this regard, DJ Bath Plus will honor 2020 prices for thirty days after the increase takes effect

With that urgency in mind, we recommend following up with our Sales Team as soon as possible. Besides this change in our policy, chances are, given their expertise and experience, they can also assist you in a variety of other ways to ensure your bids and projects stay on track.
