KALLISTA INTRODUCES NEW WHITE WOOD VARIATIONS TO ITS BARBARA BARRY COLLECTION

New pieces bring relaxed coastal style to the traditional collection

KOHLER, Wis. - Kallista, a global leader in the grand luxury plumbing market, extends the product offering of one of its most popular designer collections: The Barbara Barry Collection. Initially introduced to wide acclaim in 1998, internationally renowned designer Barbara Barry has rejuvenated her timeless collection, designed exclusively for Kallista, with a fresh, white finish option on several of the exquisite wood furniture pieces. Perfect for a breezy beach cottage or a cozy powder room, the new white wood offering in the Barbara Barry Collection expands the breadth of the already substantial collection for consumers and designers.

Praised for its exquisite beauty and versatility, the Barbara Barry Collection relies on the famed designer’s hallmarks of clean lines and refined silhouettes. Barry introduces the pleasing aesthetic of furniture into the bathroom, the place where most of us begin and end our day, and according to her is one of the most essential places to create a "calm and nurturing haven in an otherwise hectic world."

Leading the new offering of white wood pieces is the "for her" vanity, complete with lavatory basin in Stucco White and faucet in myriad finishes that include Chrome, Brushed Nickel, and Nickel Silver. As the central focal point of the new white wood ensemble, the vanity provides a generous working surface for grooming items and ample storage in the cabinet underneath and is complemented with a coordinating mirrored cabinet with white wood frame or simple, wood framed mirror.

An elegant white wood étagère with five shelves and a lower drawer is ideal for storing towels, candles, perfume or other toiletries and offers a pleasing silhouette to the white wood offering with its sleek, towering form. Completing the white wood ensemble is the Barbara Barry Collection toilet, offered in Stucco White, with a coordinating white wood toilet seat to seamlessly integrate with the other white wood pieces in the collection.

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.
