KALLISTA INTRODUCES NEW KITCHEN COMPONENTS TO MICHAEL S SMITH FOR TOWN AND COUNTRY COLLECTIONS

KOHLER, Wis. - Building upon the successful launches of his two unforgettable collections, Michael S Smith adds new kitchen designs to his celebrated For Town and For Country Collections, exclusively for Kallista. Generous sinks and artistic kitchen faucets reverently observe the signature elements found in the gorgeous bath components of these admired Kallista designs.

For Country
The For Country Collection, originally introduced in 2002 with entire suite of bath fixtures, now introduces a vast, single basin kitchen sink with a tall, integrated backsplash. True to the charming aesthetic of Smith's For Country bath components, the For Country sink offers an updated design reminiscent of classic early 20th century farm sinks and is available in two colors, Green terrazzo and a black Nero Tanzania.

Complementing the roomy 20 1/4" x 27" x 24 7/8" sink is a wall-mounted dual control kitchen faucet featuring traditional detailing. Integrated into the faucet design is a petite storage basket to hold a bar of soap or small sponges. Signature, ornate faucet handles make the For Country kitchen faucet, offered in Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel and Antique Silver, perfect for traditional kitchen environments.

For Town
Keeping with the vintage 1930's inspiration for the collection's bath products, the For Town Collection kitchen sink is constructed of exquisite marble that has been beautifully carved into a generous, single-basin sink. Available in two colors, Carrara and Naxos White, the marble front of the apron features a carved, architectural molding-inspired panel offering a universally timeless look.

Crowning the 20" x 34" x 10" basin is a dual-control deck mount kitchen faucet featuring a tall gooseneck spout with generous basin reach, perfect for filling large cooking vessels. Available in Chrome, Nickel Silver and Brushed Nickel, the For Town kitchen faucet borrows timeless design cues from vintage faucets of the 1930s, including classic ceramic handle inserts detailed with the words "hot" and "cold," to create a faucet that is architecturally arresting and superbly functional.

Kallista manufactures products of exceptional quality and design for the kitchen and bathroom under four distinct collections - Michael S Smith, Barbara Barry, Retro Kallista and Decorative Kallista. These exquisitely designed products are available in fine showrooms in major cities throughout the world.

Based in Kohler, Wis., the company is a division of Kohler Co., a global leader in kitchen and bathroom design.
