KALLISTA EXTENDS PER SE COLLECTION DECORATIVE OPTIONS

Jul 15, 2015

Kallista, a leading designer and supplier of luxury kitchen and bath plumbing products, introduced decorative lever options to its Per Se Collection as part of its 2015 line-up.  The decorative levers extend its 2014 introduction of the Per Se crystal knob handles and effectively builds upon the overall Per Se portfolio.  In keeping with the sleek and sensuous character of the collection, the decorative levers offer a rarified alternative in bathroom design through its extraordinary range of hand-selected stone and finish combinations.

Paying homage to 1950s and 1960s design that moved away from the complex fluting or layered details of earlier periods, the Per Se Collection offers a series of comprehensive handle options to create an individual look based upon personal taste.  The Per Se decorative levers are offered in an array of six opulent inserts – one Italian crystal and five hand-selected semiprecious materials – that infuse the collection with a sense of luxury and originality: Black Crystal, Mother of Pearl, Calcedonia Azul, Lapis Lazuli (shown below), Tiger Eye, and Malachite.

Black Crystal is distinctive and chic, its deep, impenetrable midnight shade a play in stark juxtaposition against the metal finish.  Mother of Pearl offers that classic pearl luminosity that is both organic and opulent.  Calcedonia Azul, prized as a sacred stone by Native Americans, comes in a variety of handsome colors, from milky blue to golden tones, and has a characteristic banding that comes from centuries of layered minerals.  Lapis Lazuli is an electric cobalt blue with brilliant flecks of gold and white – which was found in Ancient Egypt’s King Tuts mask, and Tiger Eye – reputed to bring good luck – is a banded golden yellow with a silky shine.  Malachite has a rich green color that is intensified by beautiful light and dark bands that give it a unique marbled quality.  These exquisite inserts, with their eye-catching colors and unique geological characteristics, take the collection to a higher level of extravagance.

The decorative lever design is a play of tactile sophistication – from its trim silhouette that engages the eye and ergonomically designed handle that deftly fits the hand to the cool stone options selected to beautifully juxtapose against the warmth of Kallista living finishes.  Beyond the 24-karat-finish, the Per Se Collection is available in Chrome and Kallista living finishes Nickel Silver, and the newest to join the Kallista repertoire, Sterling Silver.  Kallista also offers a wide range of specialty finishes allowing you to customize your selection for your personal décor style, including a new Sterling Silver finish.

Sterling Silver is the twelfth living finish in Kallista’s signature finish collection. Created specifically for the Per Se decorative faucets, the Sterling Silver finish further elevates the Per Se pieces with its reflective glow and cool radiance, partnering harmoniously with the stone inserts to create a finished look that is as eye-catching as fine jewelry.  As with all of Kallista’s living finishes, Sterling Silver will take on a warm, natural luster through the years that contributes character and charm to its appearance.
