Lake Forest, California (July 2010) - Price Pfister®, a century-long leader in the residential kitchen and bath fixture industry, today introduced the new Avanti™ Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet. Price Pfister was amongst the first manufacturers to deliver a pull-down kitchen faucet at retail, and Avanti is the first pull-down kitchen faucet from Price Pfister designed on a smaller scale for homeowners who desire the style and functionality of a pull-down, but have more modestly-sized sinks and kitchens.
“By nature, kitchen pull-downs are large in scale. In talking with our customers, we found that many of them loved the style and functionality a pull-down provided, but were hesitant to purchase them because they felt their sinks and kitchens were too small to accommodate such a large fixture,” said Brian Schaadt, product manager, Kitchen, Price Pfister. “While functionality is extremely important, homeowners also feel their fixtures reflect their personal taste, and rely on these pieces to bring a sense of style to the room without appearing awkward and over-sized.”
The Avanti Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet features a unique curvature that starts at the base of the faucet and twists its way up toward the spout. This curvature gives the design a bit of contemporary flair for kitchens with more modern décor, yet remains simple enough to coordinate well with most kitchen styles. Avanti is available in one- or three-hole configurations and installs with or without a deckplate. The new kitchen pull-down also features two modes – spray and stream – which can be conveniently controlled on the sprayhead during use. Avanti is available in Stainless Steel $178 or Tuscan Bronze $198 at The Home Depot nationwide. For more information on Avanti, click here.
