ROHL has introduced a new kitchen faucet by designer Michael Berman!
Berman created this newest Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet exclusively for ROHL. Made in the United States, this newest addition to the ROHL line is inspired by the glamorous age in American culture during the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s. It combines modern elements with those from the era when transatlantic ocean liners and transcontinental train travel were in their heyday and Hollywood was in its prime.

Bidets have long been popular in Asia, parts of South America and Europe. The unique bathroom appliance is finally making its way to the US. A personal cleansing method that traditionally requires a stand-alone, toilet-like fixture,toilet manufacturers like Toto are creating products that integrate the bidet functionality into the toilet.
Read more about this new trend in the Wall Street Journal.
To self-clean, the Washlet S300e and S350e use water that’s been disinfected by passing a small amount of the home’s incoming water supply over electrically charged plates. After the user flushes, these Washlets—Toto’s term for bidet seats—mist the bowl with electrolyzed water and continue to spray every eight hours to keep it clean. Flow options include a rear cleanse, front cleanse and rear soft cleanse—and all can be set to either oscillate or pulsate. There are five settings for water pressure and temperature. The Washlet also boasts an automatic air deodorizer and heated seat. A touch-pad control allows users to program up to two personalized settings.

Available in two product categories: ThermoMasseur® an air jet bath offering a deeper massage or the new ThermaSens™, 3 combined therapies to awake your senses.
