KALLISTA® ADDS NEW WEATHERED BRONZE FINISH TO MICHAEL S SMITH INIGO® COLLECTION

Warm patina adds character and depth to the architecturally inspired designs

KOHLER, Wis. - (October 22, 2011) - Kallista, a leading provider of decorative plumbing products, has extended the range of finish options for its popular Michael S Smith Inigo line of bathroom accessories with its new Weathered Bronze finish. This warm finish adds depth and personality to Inigo's Mediterranean aesthetic, and complements the repetition of lines and curves of the collection. Weathered Bronze joins the existing finishes in the line of chrome, nickel silver and brushed nickel.

The Weathered Bronze is aptly described as a "living finish;" that is, it will continue to add patina and character through the years, and this dynamic and many-layered quality will come to enhance and define the space over time. Its warmth and understated nature lends a sense of permanence and atmosphere to the bath. The solid brass construction of the Inigo components adds to the sense of quality and permanence. Available on all Inigo faucets and fixtures to coordinate entire suites, Weathered Bronze is the perfect antidote to the everyday, and beautifully rounds out the finish options for Michael S Smith's singular collection for Kallista.

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.
