Kallista, a leading provider of decorative plumbing products launched its new Amédée collection of stone knobs at the 2011 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas. Fashioned to complement the same brass faucet, showering and accessory base of the successful Baccarat Bambous crystal knobs, Amédée presents a beautiful alternative with an organic mix of fine stone handle options. These softly honed bell-shaped designs are handcrafted from white, honey or green onyx or chinchilla obsidian, a semi-precious material formed by volcanic sediment.

The collection’s sculpted, hand-polished faucets feature a gradual sloping spout that grows from a round metal base and paired with classic cross handles. Kallista utilizes the finest valves in all its faucets to ensure years of maintenance-free use. Featuring diamond-hard, ceramic discs, instead of conventional seat washers, assure that the installation will be leak-free even in the hardest water conditions. The faucets are offered in Brushed Nickel and Nickel Silver Kallista living finishes, which are designed to patina over time and wear naturally providing each piece with its own unique warmth and character.

Kallista is known for its designs of decorative plumbing products, offering faucets and fixtures thoughtfully created for tasteful, whole-bath solutions. Kallista is available in fine showrooms in major cities throughout the world. Kallista is part of the Kohler Interiors Group family of brands, which includes Ann Sacks Tile and Stone, Inc., Baker Knapp & Tubbs, Inc., Baker Knapp & Tubbs Showrooms and Baker Stores, McGuire Furniture Company, and Mark David hospitality designs.
