KALLISTA® BUILDS UPON ITS FOUNDATION

The 5’ Perfect Bathtub and Classic Cylinder Wall Sconce Featured at 2010 HD Expo

Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, featured its 5’ Perfect Tub and its new Classic Cylinder Wall Sconce at the 2010 HD Expo in Las Vegas.  The representation is just two of a growing series of classic, well-designed “foundational” fixtures Kallista has designed to anchor a variety of sophisticated bathroom designs.  This cross-over design solution began in 2008 with the first Perfect Bathtub, which was expanded in 2009 with three additional tub and air bath designs.  The Classic Cylinder Wall Sconce featured here and two new toilets – Plié™ and  Bridgeton™ high-efficiency toilets unveiled at the April 2010 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show – represent the next installation in support of this important Kallista initiative.
  
The Classic Cylinder Wall Sconce is a timeless silhouette designed to complement traditional and transitional settings.  Breathtaking in its simplicity, the lamp frame, back plate and interior components are all cast from solid brass and finished in Chrome, Nickel Silver, Brushed Nickel, or Antique Bronze, the reflective quality of the metal finish both drawing and reflecting light.  Suspended from the frame is a frosted glass shade that carries almost the length of the backplate and provides soft, ambient light.

Minimal, with clean, classic lines, the 5’ Perfect bathtub is thoughtfully executed for the ultimate bathing experience and part of a series of universal acrylic baths and airbaths that fuse precise engineering and innovative design with comfort and elegance.  The 60x32-inch size has been engineered for comfort with an innovative, integrated shape, graceful sloped sides and side overflow – all designed for a luxurious, comfortable bathing with a 22-inch depth allowing for a deep, relaxing soak.
 
Built to complement residential and commercial installations, the Perfect Tub is offered as an undermount or drop-in version.  Unlike standard gelcoat tubs, the Perfect bathtub is a seamless, acrylic construction allowing for a smooth, uniform finish and superior water temperature retention.  Offered in Kallista’s standard colors of Stucco White or Linen, the Perfect Tub is fitted with the new Kallista Cable Drain available in Kallista’s Polished Chrome, Nickel Silver and Brushed Nickel, and Gunmetal finish options.
