LAKE FOREST, Calif.—January 27, 2015
—Today’s design-savvy consumers seek home products that match their unique custom décor—from modern to traditional. Pfister®, a leading manufacturer of kitchen and bathroom fixtures and accessories, offers a new lineup of options that appeal to the designer in all of us. The company recently announced Arterra™ and Arkitek™, two new lines of faucets and shower systems, and an extension to the Modern Kitchen Finish line.
“Home décor goes far beyond paint, furniture and other key items—it should also flow into even the smallest details of a room,” said Jamie Dorman, Group Marketing Manager for Pfister. “We kept in mind the variety of design trends—traditional, transitional and modern—and made sure our new products offer a variety of options to match the vast array of preferences.”
Arterra is the newest complete collection of bathroom faucets, shower products and fixtures for high-end residential and hospitality use. The line pulls influences from the ‘20s and ‘30s, including renowned architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright. The faceted surfaces with sharp, refined lines allow for a look that’s bold, but soft. It was specifically designed to accentuate a classic look and modernize it for the present day. The line can easily add a modern feel to a traditional bathroom or provide a classic twist to a more contemporary bathroom. Arterra not only capitalizes on its good looks, but it also has some innovative features including the all new brass, Ultraseal cartridges with ceramic disc guaranteed for life to never leak or drip. In addition, the collection offers the all new SecurePfit shower trim on all of its designs. This trim can be installed quickly and easily without tools and unsightly screw heads. This all new shower handle design fits snugly over the valve for a truly firm connection putting an end to the days of wobbly shower handles. The collection is available in four on-trend finishes, including polished chrome, brushed nickel, polished nickel and Tuscan bronze, and the opening price point of $246 makes this high-end collection approachable for most homeowners.
Arkitek is a line of bathroom faucets and shower systems specifically designed for consumers that prefer a fresh, modern look at a competitive price point. Often, cutting-edge styles are price prohibitive for the average homeowner, but Arkitek takes design and cost into consideration. This new collection, offers a wide range of items in two finishes: Brushed Nickel or Polished Chrome. Arkitek is a great solution for Millennials and first-time home buyers who want a trendy design that doesn’t break the bank.
Modern Kitchen Finish Extension (Zuri™, Alea™ and Lita™)
Following the release of its popular Zuri, Alea and Lita kitchen faucets, Pfister saw a growing demand for additional, on-trend finishes: Matte Black and Polished Nickel. Particularly popular finishes in regional markets, Polished Nickel thrives in the U.S. Sunbelt states and more traditional coastal towns while Matte Black is an important finish for metropolitan areas and East Coast/West Coast living. These new finishes have been added to the already-available Polished Chrome and Stainless Steel, providing choices for every home across the US.
The Arterra and Arkitek lines and new finishes for Zuri, Alea and Lita kitchen faucets are currently available in plumbing showrooms and through distributors. The Arterra line and the kitchen faucets can be found in showrooms like Ferguson, Keller and Pacific Sales throughout the U.S., while Arkitek can be found through U.S. wholesale distributors, plumbers and builders.
