5 Faucets Tapped Into the Latest Trends

Modern takes on double-mixer faucets

By Eric Mutrie



Brass Kohler Purist faucets shine in Commute Design’s award-winning washroom for Spanish restaurant Patria (478 King St W). Wall-mounted with separate cross-shaped handles for hot and cold, the regal fixtures are a fresh spin on traditional basin taps. They complement such other opulent details as floor-to-ceiling marble and gilded frame mirrors. $945, at Atlantis Bath Centre



Hansgrohe’s Logis Classic features two easy-to-grip valves, each accented with a thin stripe of colour to differentiate hot from cold. Available in chrome and brushed-nickel finishes. Call for pricing, at Roman Bath Centre



The curved flat spout of Graff’s wall-mounted Sade fixture evokes a crashing wave. The adjacent knobs are subtly curved like ocean ripples. Take your pick from bronze, chrome and nickel finishes. Call for pricing, at Canaroma



Shown in a flashy new Cyprum finish produced by mixing copper and 18-karat gold, Dornbracht’s Mem faucet has a striking, super-slim silhouette and wispy knobs that perfectly complement minimalist architecture. From $1940, at Ginger’s



Like your modern a little more mechanical? American Standard’s Studio fixture boasts a wrench-shaped spout and ratchet-like handles. Its ceramic disc valve ensures drip-free performance. From $365, at Taps Bath Centre
