          I have installed more than one colony product, and while not exactly excellent quality, they have been serviceable and attractive enough. This faucet is kind of an exception to that rule, relatively inexpensive but has that high end looking copper edging to the bronze that kicks it up a notch from the silver finishes. Nice looking spout and handles too.

          This is a great option for an additional oven when you have a gas range. Since over the range microwaves are out of style and are generally about the same width, stacking one with this in a cabinet is perfect. For convection cooking an electric oven is required, but a gas oven is far less expensive to run. This size is perfect for baking and in much less time than a traditional oven. I live in California, so much of the time it is too warm to want an oven heating the house so these features are perfect for me.

          This is a great sink, I had another granite composite sink that was black and it was just a bit too dark, you seemed to be looking into a black hole, but this seems to have a somewhat lighter tone to it, less stark. It is a shame they can't really show the true colors of the chestnut or caviar colors or this one on the site as they seem to be subtler shades. Perhaps an in scene photo or two would help. It's nice that the size fits the entire 36 inch cabinet.

          It is unclear why so many mid century homes include a 5 foot vanity with a single sink and single light above, did it really take that many years to figure out 2 sinks are much better than 1? Anyway, this is the perfect fix if you are remodeling just such a bathroom and don't want to move the electric. In any case the integrated LED is a great feature, the only drawback might be the non-dimmablity.

          Mixing the timely and the timeless, American designers created an ultra-glamorous look that defines the silver screens golden age. Pentos draws inspiration from Hollywood Regency style. Pentos is an elegantly proportioned chandelier in a cut and polished pentagon of modern acrylic.

          After all the horrid brass lingering around from the eighties I have been slow to embrace the new trend towards gold, but this fixture caught my eye in its' design and I decided to go for it. If it was made of glass I'm sure it would be way too heavy to hang from the ceiling but the acrylic makes it much more lightweight. Very eye catching and modern yet retro.
