ROCK CRYSTAL GAINS ENTRÉE INTO KALLISTA® AMÉDÉE™ COLLECTION

KOHLER, Wis. (April 24, 2012) – At the 2012 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Chicago, Kallista, a leading provider of decorative plumbing products, unveiled a new addition to its selection of unique faucet and accessory inserts for its Amédée line: rock crystal. The incorporation of this semi-precious gemstone into the design of the Amédée products brings glamour and sophistication to the powder room, while simultaneously injecting an organic, natural feel to the space.

The rock crystal inserts have been carefully cut and honed in a draping bell shape that flows gently from the top to a flared bottom that joins the stepped base of the handle. The very nature of the stone ensures that no two are identical; naturally occurring rock crystal displays internal fractures that are visible to the naked eye, and these inclusions result in veils and colorful refractions that bring a singular beauty and light to the gemstone.

These inserts are for inclusion on existing Amédée/Baccarat Bambous basin sets and accessories, and they are designed to complement the existing white, honey or green onyx or chinchilla obsidian options. The solid brass construction ensures the faucet's long-term durability and reliability.

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.
