A Jewel In The Bathroom
The AXOR Edge collection is the crowning achievement in precision. State-of-the-art diamond cutting creates masterful lines, grooves and textures that allow AXOR fixtures to take center stage in any bathroom.
Inspired by the French tradition of Arts Décoratifs, AXOR Edge explores the world of extreme refinement. Conceived as sculpture, each mixer is a stunning composition of rectangular prisms. Cut and polished using diamond-tipped tooling from the aerospace industry, every prism radiates like a jewel, with surfaces of unparalleled smoothness and decorative patterns milled to micron precision.
“With AXOR EDGE, we wanted to create an emotion by surprising people. When quality is a must, when competence is a due, then emotion must be first. More than a faucet, each product in the collection is a jewel, a sculpture—a real, functioning piece of art that shares your intimacy for life. That’s my understanding of luxury.”
Both nature and artificial lighting has being played such an important role for the kitchen design in the recent years not just for functionalities but also aesthetic and wellness as well. A well-lit kitchen always appears more pleasant to you no matter how simple it is. There are several ways to bring in more nature light into a kitchen space such as having new windows at the location that can be exposed to the most of the light during a day, enlarging windows and doors, making windows and doors as high as possible to close to the ceilings to bounce back more light, installing sky lights, etc.The lighter and high sheen paints also can reflect more light back to the room. The same rule applies for the countertops. But there is always a catch because the too shining and polished surfaces will create a lot of glares. We just need to be more mindful when we take consider of all of the design elements. There are 5 pillars of kitchen lighting design—task lighting, accent lighting , general lighting and ambient lighting and decorative lighting.Today we are going to focus on one of the pillars of lighting design –ambient lighting.
While the kitchen is considered the heart of the home, the water station is right at the center of that heart. Sink and faucet styles have evolved to meet every functional and aesthetic purpose that can be imagined, including changeable sink fronts and low-bowl divides, and color-infused faucets that respond to a range of operations.
In fact, today’s kitchen faucets showcase a range of finishes and functions that take food prep and cleanup to a new level. Today we are going to share top 6 trends on kitchen faucets.
The variety of finishes, shapes and functions allow for personalization and customization to go with any design styles.
Coordinating Kitchen Faucets

The faucet might not be the most important element in a modern kitchen but it is high on the list. So, if you are in the process of a kitchen renovation, you might already notice those commerical-style semi professional faucets online or offline that ask your attention all the time. These semi professionalp pre-rinse faucets are the typical faucets you see in a restaurant or commercial kitchen. They have a high-arc spout with a very high-pressure pull-out spray nozzle to blast off food from plates. Just like commercial-stoves and commercial-style refrigerators, pre-rinse-style faucets started entering the residential kitchen over the last 10 years. Today, they account for a significant share of the kitchen faucet market since people love the fact that the tall height, the exposed hose, and the professional features will turn any kitchen into a true chef’s prep space.
Here are several thoughts to choose a semi-professional faucet unit.
1. We will consider reach, functionality, and coil styles when we spec for clients. Each client has different aesthetic. The open coil is most like a chef’s faucet, but for those who want something more contemporary or easier to clean, they can choose a closed coil style or a unit with a flexible rubber hose. Spray functionality with dual spray that is both powerful and easy to operate is a big plus.
2. Getting the measurements right is important. Many units require a large space, for height and reach. The reach should be proportionate to size of sink and arc or height should reach under cabinets. Also it is important to make sure that there is enough room between wall and faucet to fully leverage the reach/operation of the chef’s faucet.
3. Always choose products with high quality features such as brass construction and ceramic disk cartridges.
