Blog Tour was one of the most incredible and inspiring design experiences I’ve had the privilege to enjoy.
Day 1 began with a welcome breakfast at the Poggenpohl Showroom hosted by #BlogTourNYC sponsors Poggenpohl, Blanco and Silestone.
Blanco, the German manufacturer and leading innovator in luxury sink and faucet design, is known for its elegant and cutting-edge fixtures….which is exactly what we witnessed first hand! The ALTA™ Compact faucets were proudly showcased front and center – displaying each new color and finish for all to see.
Color finishes include: Anthracite, Biscotti, Cafe Brown, Cinder, Truffle, White, Chrome and Satin Nickel.
This modern and sleekly geometric fixture is ideal for any classic,contemporary or transitional style kitchen. Its compact design will also work perfectly within a butler’s pantry or for a wet bar, secondary sink or laundry room. This latest collection of faucets is designed with “real living” in mind. They use less water, are highly durable and easily maintained which has universal appeal, covering all demographics and lifestyles.
Did I mention that the Alta Faucet swivels 120 degrees and pulls out to provide its dual spray feature? How’s that for flexibility?
The Alta Faucet isn’t just for compact sinks or spaces however. Take a look at the image below. It also compliments the generously sized architectural MODEX kitchen sink workstation – illustrating just how versatile this faucet really is.
From the showroom floor we had the privilege of hearing from Christy Emens, the Social Media Manager of Blanco America. She had plenty of insights to share into the award winning MODEX workstation sink and the new neutrals, specifically – the SILGRANIT II – color Cinder. With a blend of gray, black and brown this new color integrates seemlessly into any countertop style. Best of all it is resistant to fading, scratching and staining and will maintain its timeless beauty for years to come. A Modern Classic!
Now, if you want to go bold with a faucet for this sink, the Blanco Culina Semi-Professional clearly makes a statement! Its tall and elegantly curving design features a flexible coiled steel spring spout, held in place by a magnetic holder. It also has a dual spray feature and a water saving model available, which is perfect for the professional kitchens and the serious household chef.
