New Bathroom Collection by Kallista Features Two Classic Styling Options

Kallista, a leading provider of luxury plumbing products, launched its new Bellis bathroom collection at the 2010 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Chicago.  Unveiled at the show was a basin set with two spout and handle designs, bath filler, a range of showering components, and accessories.  Kallista will be expanding the Bellis collection with a complementing vanity later this year.

Classic styling with a series of options to address personal taste, Bellis offers basin sets with two spout and handle designs.  The first spout, Noble, is a curvaceous form with bell-shaped handle bonnet and faucet base that flank a rounded spout that gently flairs at the end.  In contrast is the minimal Traditional design, with a conservative, straightforward silhouette, squared spout and understated flared base and bonnet.  A stylized take on cross and lever handles add to the collection’s charm.  The lever handles are slightly raised from the bonnet top and ergonomically designed to bow in fitting the hand comfortably.  The cross handles’ four prongs use a similar, inverted bow design giving the handles personality and definition.
The basin sets are equipped with a 1.5 gpm laminar flow aerator making it an ecologically considerate choice.  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.

For the bath, Bellis offers a Traditional design deck-mounted bath set, wall-mounted tub spout, and showerhead and handshower with sprayface nozzles that resist hard water build-up and are easy to clean.  Pressure Balance and Thermostatic valve trims are available with cross or lever handles.  The Pressure Balance trim with diverter option features a patented valve allowing for a fixed showerhead and handshower to be installed without requiring additional transfer valves or volume controls.

Rounding out the Bellis collection is a 24-inch towel bar, towel ring, and toilet paper holder.  Constructed from solid brass, the forms blend components of the Traditional and Noble designs to allow the accessories to easily marry to the rest of the collection regardless of preferred style choice.

Bellis is available in Chrome, Nickel Silver, and Brushed Nickel Kallista living finishes.  Designed to patina over time, the living finishes are meant to wear naturally providing each piece with its own unique warmth and character.
