Newport Brass Debuts 3 New Faucet Collections in July 2011

Premium Decorative Bath, Shower and Kitchen Manufacturer
Brings Metro, Ithaca, and Kiara Collections to the Marketplace

Santa Ana, Calif. (July 2011) – Newport Brass, a premium decorative plumbing brand, manufactured by Brasstech, Inc., is proud to introduce the new Metro, Ithaca, and Kiara bath and shower collections. With a July 2011 launch, these faucets are now in showrooms and available to designers, builders, homeowners, and remodelers.

Each collection has its own distinct personality. This continues Newport Brass’ tradition of providing collections that allow for the fulfillment of endless design visions.

METRO – Metro exemplifies modern design with its clean, precise lines and superb combination of two basic geometric forms. This faucet makes a strong and definitive statement in its simplicity and requires no extraneous decorative additions.

ITHACA – With a precise, scientific beauty, Ithaca brings the elements of ancient Greek architecture into the 21st Century. Strong, smooth columns create the foundation for the faucet and handles which are then accented by soft concentric rings at their base. Ithaca serves as an element around which the design possibilities are endless.

KIARA – Like flowing water Kiara has a graceful, fluid quality with its curved lines. The proud arch of the spout and the fountain-like handles feature a ridge that accentuates the fresh design elements found in this collection.

The unique and highly crafted details of these products lend themselves nicely to the wide variety of finishes we have in our arsenal.
