The Furniture Guild - 11/20/2023


524 LOGAN & 526 LUCAS
Both models are now on the configurator!  Not all configurations are up yet but the main ones are there.
A new design called Piper is now available on the website, price list and configurator.
Piper is basically an Avalon with rounded corners. It is made with a substructure so the standard interior finish is gray like the Avalon. Available finishes are different than other designs which is why it is in 500 series.
Piper is available in Fluted Finishes which we anticipate will be the way it will be mainly ordered. Piper is currently available in limited configurations.  Bases are available for this design but the selection is limited by the round corners.
Countertops are also limited by rounded corners similar to the Lucas/Logan. All of these limitations and restrictions are maintained in the configurator so you can easily check there for compatibility.

NEW! TFG for PROJECTS! The Furniture Guild designs and materials meet contract-quality manufacturing from our global factory network to meet large project timeline and budget requirements.
This is something we’ve been working on over the last year and are really excited to announce. Up until now, TFG has basically turned away the large projects as budgets for these jobs were commonly an issue and It simply wasn’t feasible to stop our day-to-day production to produce large scale projects.
We have now completed several large products utilizing larger factories overseas and several more are in the works. This is certainly a different message than what you’ve heard from us in the past.
Nothing is changing about the products that you currently order for luxury, single family residences. But now you can also think of TFG as an option for larger product quantity (30+) jobs. We now have options to be competitive!
There’s a new code in NYC and California (other markets coming soon) that requires certain rental buildings to include ADA compatible vanities in EVERY room. There is a section in the code that allows for a “convertible” vanity but it must be able to be converted using simple hand tools. Currently, the products available for ADA convertible are very plain and boring.
To solve this, TFG now offers their new G3 ADA Convertible; a slightly modified G3 vanity with or without legs. Four screws come out with a screwdriver and the vanity will slide straight out revealing an ADA compatible apron that holds our standard Mineralstone top.

This was shown at BDNY and turned a lot of heads!

New Finish
We also showed a new finish coming soon: C67 Nocino. (samples in production now)

  • More fluted finishes compatibility on Configurator
  • New BAND3 design available across the board
  • C67 Nocino to join C-TEX finishes and Guilder

Four Interesting points on The Furniture Guild:

  1. You can put 700 lbs. of weight on all the substructure-based designs!  And, if a panel is damaged in the field, it can be replaced without uninstalling the countertop, substructure or plumbing!
  2. TFG offers more finishes including custom paints, automotive paints and exotic veneers.
  3. The drawer system is made in Germany and the “split” area for plumbing is built from marine grade material that is edge banded in 2mm ABS. Looks much nicer than anything else you’re going to see out there!
  4. Substructure allows for custom sizes and configurations while the Guilder series is more limited...

The Guilder Series uses a bracket system that utilizes 10mm dowels into the Textured Laminate/Acrylic and pressure pulls laterally on the material.  Its strong enough, but not as strong as our substructure.  Guilder is built more like how the competition is building them but there are a few differences that still make it better:

  1. The horizontal braces inside are made out of plywood (substructure material) where everyone else uses particle board or MDF.
  2. The mounting system is top-of-the-line and made in Italy.  It is rated to hold 330 lbs.
  3. Our dowel spacing is kept at 2.5” so we use over double the number of connectors compared to our competitors!
  4. The drawer system is a less expensive one but has the same weight rating, adjustability and warranty. Not quite as upscale as the German version we offer in the main line but significantly better than what most other companies are using.
  5. We offer a lifetime warranty on Guilder. Do you know of another company that offers this on their vanities?  At any price point?
  6. Guilders are still built one-at-a-time by the same builders that build the Avalon and each one is signed by the Craftsman. Most competitors build their products on an assembly line in bulk.
  7. Guilder uses a powder coated steel U shaped piece where most other mars use cheap plastic.

Fluted Faces vs Fluted Fronts 
We have 2 new options in the pricelist on page 17.
Fluted Faces replaces all finished panel surfaces.
Fluted Fronts replaces only the fronts with fluted fronts.
We have activated Fluted Faces for the Avalon on the Configurator. You can select Fluted from the Panel finish section. Fluted panels are only available in A Paints for now.
Next we will add Fluted Fronts to Hayden, Hannah, Edwin. It’s a great look and will completely change the look of these designs.
Hardware on Flutes
We are going to offer all (or most) of our decorative hardware on fluted finishes.  Stay tuned to see how we will be integrating hardware that we’re developing now. Many companies are offering fluted finishes but none will integrate hardware like we will. It will be special.
Guildcrete 2.0 – Guildcrete 1.0 is on hold for now but we have something special brewing. Big improvement to this program that you will like. Stay tuned!

Locally produced quality
Our commitment to quality extends to our production process. All our shower bases are proudly manufactured in our facilities in Thetford Mines. 
We have a deep sense of satisfaction in producing right here in Canada, using top-quality materials sourced entirely from North-America.

Unmatched sturdiness and leak-free

All Oceania shower bases come with built-in supports that ensure unparalleled sturdiness. For any A, B, or C-type base,

integrated acrylic tile flanges combined with an anti-leak barrier provide peace of mind by delivering reliable waterproofing.

The latest one!
The newest base boasts the same exceptional features as our existing models but stands out with discreet thresholds and the addition of a linear drain cover.
Available sizes: 
48’’ x 36’’
60’’ x 32’’
60’’ x 36’’

The convenient one!
With its drain located at 12’’ x 12’’, this shower base is incredibly convenient. This model comes in handy when replacing a corner shower unit without the need to reposition the drain or when repositioning is simply not possible. It’s a game changer in bathroom design!

Oceania-Attitude - 08/21/2023

             - Walnut and Oak interiors – Upgrade Gray Substructure to be Walnut
                or White Oak Substructure (upgrading the interior automatically) 

  • Upgrades drawers to Walnut/Oak)

               - Pricing for this option is $20 x longest dimension. Figured
                 automatically in the Configurator

              specify location and quantity in order to share or generate
              commissioning code

  • Lighting

           - All interior and exterior lighting is available. You must specify
             location and quantity in order to share or generate commissioning code

  • Electrical

           - All electrical options are now available. You must specify location

             - Custom Color – changes the finish coding and provides place to
               put custom finish code

A video is in the works covering all of these new features.  Please let us know if you have any questions!

Just a head’s up…
The Furniture Guild has made a small change on model numbers for Metal Bases and Wood Bases.  Currently, they code bases as Design-Width-Height.  Example: MB1-3614.
Moving forward, they’re changing the code to be Design-Height-Width.  Example: MB1-1436.
This change was necessary for future Configurator upgrades.



California Faucets has updated the estimated lead times on their website to reflect faster ETA’s for many finishes!
Please review the update on the website:
The only exception remains the SBZ, GRP, and LSG finishes that had their lead times extended slightly.  We believe this is still a temporary situation and every effort is being made to reduce these three lead times as well.  Thank you for your support!


With the new catalog, California Faucets replaced the TS-55 tub spout (also used in TS-55-40 and the TS-55-64) with the new TS-55-55. 
Both are pictured below so you can quickly see the difference. 


California Faucets is proud to officially launch their newest kitchen faucet, the La Spezia Collection (K55 Series) contemporary faucet, featuring a striking cantilevered handle. 
Like the rest of our award-winning kitchen collection, La Spezia is available in all 25+ artisan finishes.  Italian Design meets California Craftsmanship!

We asked one of our artisans to demonstrate how they create our finishes. 

This video captures it on film. CLICK HERE

Most manufacturers mass-produce their brushed finishes. We believe in

doing it the old fashioned way - by hand. In fact, everyone of our 25+

finishes are handcrafted by our artisans in Huntington Beach, California. 

The Furniture Guild - 08/16/22

The Furniture Guild (“TFG”) has exciting news for y’all today. Please read through the important info below and let us know if you have any questions!

CLICK HERE to download this document

New Quartz Colors – TFG is adding 7 new quartz colors from Silestone. These new colors will be a great addition to their top program:


White Zeus Polished – Bright White with very little inclusion. This is a step up over the current Pure White

Camden – Suede – Light warm gray that looks like concrete. Soft Suede finish.

Charcoal Soapstone – Polished – Dark, cool blue/black with subtle marble effect. Not as black as Nero Marquina but this color should prove to be more saleable.

Calypso - Polished - Dark, warm brown with subtle marble effect. TFG made a test top from this for ICFF a couple of years ago and everyone really liked it.

Eternal Serena - Polished - Light cool gray with subtle white veining.  TFG really likes this color and thinks it will be a great seller.

Ethereal Glow – Polished - Bright white background with beige/gold veining. Think of this as the new version of Calacatta but the white is whiter. This is a hot new color from Silestone.

Ethereal Noctis - Polished  - Bright white background with gray veining. Think of this as the new version of Bianco. But the white is whiter. This is a hot new color from Silestone as well.


Quartz Samples – We are waiting for our samples to show you what is on the way and will advise when we can deliver sets to your showroom.


Existing Colors/Displays – TFG is not discontinuing the current colors yet but they will be slowly phasing them out.  We encourage dealers with current quartz colors to look at selling those displays and replacing with the new colors soon.


New Sink for Compact Depth 18” – TFG has a new 13x10 rectangle undermount porcelain sink called “Belle” in production now. It should be available in October and will allow TFG to offer their Quartz and Carrara tops in their 18” compact depth.


7 New Designs on Configurator – Please check them out!  They are still a few bugs to work out on these new designs but we’d say they are 99% there. Be sure to check them out and tell your customers!  They are:


620 Avant

621 Avento

506 Zoe Wall Mount

507 Zoe Freestanding – this will be up soon

G1 Guilder 1

G2 Guilder 2

G3 Guilder 3


42”/48” Guilders are now in the price list and also in the configurator. These vanities are available for order now but the Mineralstone tops aren’t ready yet.


42”/48” Mineralstone tops will be ready mid-September. TFG has them shown in the price list now as well as on the configurator and we will let you know when they arrive.


Double Guilders – TFG added Double Guilders to the configurator just as a test; they might leave them up there for now to see what happens. The pricing is based on a standard size Guilder x2. If you order double sink tops to go with these, the lead time will increase. Only the Mineralstone tops are in stock and shipping in 2 weeks.


24” Fireclay Tops – Discounted to $495 list while supplies last!


Lead times – Guildstone is running slower than other items in all cases. Please note:


Anything with a Guildstone Top: 10-12 Weeks

Metal Designs: 10-12 weeks

Non-Metal Standard Designs: 8-10 weeks

Guilder: 2 weeks

Custom: Please add 2 weeks to the standard lead times


Many accounts have commented on several orders shipping really fast (2-4 weeks).  Every now and then TFG will have a run of a finish, design, etc. and sometimes it happens! If you ever need something fast, please call the factory to check. In some cases, it’s possible!


Shipping Issues - Please Help!

Shipping companies are getting harder and harder to deal with. TFG needs their customers to be sensitive to this issue and help by following these guidelines:


Please tell your customers/warehouse folks to please do the following:


If a box arrives and is obviously damaged (holes from a forklift, crushed, etc.), PLEASE REFUSE THE SHIPMENT. This way it goes back to the factory and TFG can make everything good and shipping costs don’t triple.


If there is slight damage, NOTATE ON the Bill of Lading AND INSPECT IMMEDIATELY. Even if the driver leaves, please inspect and call the factory right away.


Thank you for taking the time to read this; please let us know if you have any questions!

We thank you for your business and support of California Faucets

Just a friendly "heads up" that there will be a new 2022 Catalog and Price List in early Spring. We will announce the exact effective date well in advance to give you plenty of time to update your systems and inform your clients.

Discontinued Items!

California Faucets always strives to keep their offerings fresh and relevant, so the new catalog will be full of exciting new products with outstanding designs and smartly considered technology. Of course, to make way for these new products, we will need to bid adieu to some old standbys. 

The button below will give you a heads-up of the products that are being discontinued so that you can begin pre-planning your display space and commitments while providing your customers with the most up-to-date information.

While the official "discontinued effective date" will be the effective date of the new catalog, we will continue to support and accept orders, inventory permitting, for an appropriate transition period afterwards. Please note that due to ongoing supply chain uncertainties, inventory may be exhausted prior to the official discontinue date, in which case, we will notify you that we are unable to accept the order. 

For example, that is the current case with all Swarovski Crystal products. About one year ago, Swarovski, announced that they were discontinuing the manufacture of all items except jewelry. At that time, we placed our final order estimating our needs for the next year. However, due to strong overall sales over the past l2 months, we exhausted that inventory earlier than projected and cannot get any additional supply. Therefore, all items containing Swarovski Crystal are discontinued effective immediately. 

For other items, we may find ourselves with excess inventory. In these cases, it may be an excellent profit opportunity for you to pick up overstock of discontinued items at a significant discount. If you are interested in getting a quote and availability of any discontinued item, please reach out to your Creative Bath Sales Rep.

Despite all the challenges, 2021 was a year of historic growth for us and, with your continued support, we anticipate another banner year in 2022. On behalf of everyone at California Faucets, we thank you for your partnership and look forward to growing with you.

AIRMADA - 02/10/22

Jerry with the Airmada folks and their Best of KBIS award!


Check out the NEW Tanner's Craft website



California Faucets has accumulated quite a few product awards over the years ( and we are pleased to announce that they recently added two more trophies to their collection. 

  1. The Corsano Kitchen Culinary Faucet, a previous Interior Design “Best of Year” Award winner, recently won an honorable mention from the Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association’s 2021 “POTY” awards.  One of the reason it was lauded again was because they freshened the series with the addition of a cool squeeze spray handle. 
  2. Their Single Hole Tub Fillers won Products Magazine’s 2022 “Most Valuable Product” Bronze Award.  While it didn’t win the gold, it was still recognized from among hundreds of submissions in the very large Kitchen and Bath Category, competing against all product types. 

Both the compelling aesthetic design and the practical 10GPM flow rate clearly caught the eye of the judges. 



Your clients may have many questions about the different type of shower systems available…“Should we use pressure balance?”  “Or, are thermostatic showers better?”  “What’s the difference?”

Our CEU webinar covers these questions and more…

A few Furniture Guild thoughts and changes to be aware of…

Material pricing continues to increase but the factory is trying to keep their pricing stable. There will not be any major price changes for standard product at this time. 

  1. Guildstone Price Change – New pricing will be in effect 8/26; the increase is 4-5%.  They will honor current pricing through the end of 8/25. The pricelist configurator pricing for Guildstone has been updated. 
  2. Custom Paint Finishes – The cost of custom paint colors is increasing from 10% to 15%.  Small batch paint color mixing has always been expensive and a challenge. This increase will also apply to custom Automotive Finishes and is now in the current pricelist. 
  3. Custom Sizing – Although a multiplier has never been published, many custom sizes have only had a 15% upcharge in the past. However, that charge is now 25%; please use that as a guide until you request an exact quote. 
  4. Grain Direction –  They are making a few changes on new designs with regard to grain direction. Most of you probably think this isn’t a big deal but it will be important to some customers so please understand the changes being made so you can be prepared to answer that question. You might not have noticed but the standard grain direction for 105 and 106 designs is currently:
  • Vertical on Sides
  • Horizontal on Drawers
  • Vertical on Doors

The New 105 and 106 designs include configurations with doors and drawers. We believe it looks better using horizontal grain on drawers and vertical on doors when typical decorative hardware is installed. This is not a technique for cutting corners or reducing prices; just what looks best.

Since the beginning, we’ve always talked about and sold “continuous wood grain” across the front of our designs. The Furniture Guild will still provide “continuous wood grain” on designs with all drawers as before. But when you start adding drawers and doors on the same cabinet with slab style fronts, it tends to look odd when using typical decorative hardware, hence the change.  This is a subtle detail; here are some examples:

If a customer wants to change the standard grain direction, they can always have it quoted custom. If it can be made to work, it will be done.
*The new 522, 524 and 526 will also follow this.
*Existing designs like 240 River, 410 Tempo, 420 Revo, 430 Fresco are not changing. Those designs will maintain their grain direction rules as stated in the pricelist.  
*Main point – Grain direction standards are listed in the pricelist (see image below). If you think your customer might care about this detail, be sure to review it with them.

5. Configurator –

   New Guildstone pricing has been uploaded.

   105 Kaelyn and 106 Lylah, BAND1 and POCKET PULLS will be coming online soon.  One known issue is that 106 Lylah will allow you to use thinner tops but requires 2.0 min when using a configuration with a drawer under the   sink.

   Wood Bases and Guildcrete will be added soon.

 Lead times are still running 10-12 weeks.  The factory is hiring more people, expanding their building, etc. to try to ship faster.  But, as you know, good things take time and are worth the wait! 😊
Thank you for reading this info (and selling this great American Made product)!

VALSAN - 08/10/21


Dear Valued Customer:

As many of you know, the cost of raw materials, as well as transportation both domestically and internationally, has been on the increase since the beginning of 2021. Given these increases, we have no alternative but to institute an across the board price increase of 10% effective September 6, 2021. 

To help facilitate this increase, we will be emailing the new pricing in an Excel format to all of the showrooms and e-commerce partners, as well as providing the new price list in a flip doc upon request. At this time, we will not provide a printed price list, so please distribute this letter to all your sales associates.

ADD 10%
Effective September 6, 2021

This increase will not affect any projects that have already been quoted, but will be incorporated in new quotes.

On a positive note, our main factory in Portugal is at full capacity and our stock levels here in our White Plains, NY warehouse are excellent. Our inventory is replenished every two weeks and we are still more than happy to meet any of your custom needs.

Best regards,

Joe Niesi


As you all know, the economy we are living through is new territory and has had volatile and bizarre moments.

One of those is the price of copper. Copper, the main ingredient in all of Colonial Bronze’s products, is on a pricing run. In January of 2020, its price was $2.83 per pound; it recently closed at $4.39 per pound.  That is a 53% increase. Please see its history below.

In addition to copper’s increase, the costs of freight, factory equipment and all our raw materials are also rising significantly.

To cover these increased costs, we will be raising prices on Colonial Bronze, The Tanner’s Craft and Josef Ruefelli product lines by 10% effective September 1, 2021.

The new pricing spreadsheets and PDF pricing catalogs will be emailed out the week by July 17, 2021.

The printed price books will be mailed in mid-August (however, with this interesting economy, the price books may arrive after September 1, 2021, effective date.

Please let us know if you have any questions.  We appreciate your support of Colonial Bronze.



To Our Valued California Faucets Partners- 

As most of you are already aware, due to rising costs in materials, transportation and labor, many manufacturers in our industry have already increased prices.  Not only is this happening in our industry but many others as well. 

As a result, California Faucets will also be raising prices with an across-the-board 10% increase effective July 15th

CLICK HERE to reach the letter from our CEO, Jeff Silverstein, that is being sent today to all of our dealers, that further explains the need to implement this increase.

Additional important points:

  • CF will be distributing updated pricing via an excel price sheet which will be made available to all Dealers.

  •  CF will not be printing a catalog or a PDF of the catalog at this time.  The only document available will be the Excel Pricing for those that can import the information and update your computer system.

  •  CF will make the Excel file available for download as well via the dealer portal as soon as possible.

  •  Effective immediately, CF will not be accepting stocking orders for roughs prior to the effective date of 7/15/21.

 Please let your clients know of this increase in case they wish to place an order prior to 7/15/21 to beat this 10% increase.

We appreciate your business and understanding in these challenging economic times.

California Faucets has revised their Estimated Lead Time sheet today to reflect the following changes:

BNU is being extended to 8 – 10 weeks

LPG, CB & GRP are all being shortened to 8 – 10 weeks

The most popular finishes continue to have estimated lead times of less than five weeks:

PC: 1 to 3 weeks

SN & PN: 2 to 4 weeks

MBLK: 3 to 5 weeks

Click Here to Download California Faucets New Lead Time Sheet

These lead times are all based on factory conditions.  Of course, the disruption to the global supply chain is still a major factor for just about every industry.  When we cannot ship within the ESTIMATED lead times, it will most often be due to the disruption of the global supply chain. 


The Furniture Guild regrets that Guildstone pricing is going up again on Thursday, May 6. This will be effective on all PO’s received after 5/5/21.

...And now for some good news from The Furniture Guild!

We have added 2 new sink shapes for this year.

 The Ascent2 and Ascent48.


These are great designs that feature a slot drain in the back that runs the width of the sink.

The sink includes a separate drain pan that accepts a standard drain which is included.

The pan is attached to the bottom of the sink by the plumber during installation.

The Furniture Guild will be having a 10-15% price increase on all Guildstone pricing effective April 19, 2021, due to another increase in the cost of resin.

Click Here to download the new price sheet.
They have already absorbed the first increase, back in December, but this second increase on this key ingredient makes this price adjustment necessary.
Please advise clients that you have quoted on this impending increase as that date is firm and there will not be a “grace” period. 

Order before April 19 and beat the increase!

Thank you for your understanding and support of this fine line of USA made bathroom furniture.

NEW All-Brass Multifunction Handshowers are a quick and easy way to enhance the overall bathing experience while adding a spa-like sense of luxury to the bath

CALIFORNIA FAUCETS -  Posted: 04/30/20


Hope everyone is safe and doing well during this Pandemic. This will pass sooner than later and normalcy will be here again. I wanted to update you on California Faucets Covid-19 status.

As you know, California Faucets decided to pause factory operations last month to protect the safety and health of all employees, their families and the community-at-large. 

After careful planning, they have determined that they can safely build and ship California Faucets Polished Chrome and Satin Nickel orders*.   They are doing this with a skeletal crew that can comfortably adhere to the strictest of expert guidelines to retain a safe and healthy work environment. 

Currently, they are only able to do this with Polished Chrome and Satin Nickel because neither requires the multi-step processes and larger finishing crews to produce the more complex artisan finishes.   Existing PC and SN orders are now in production and all new PC and SN orders will be promptly entered and scheduled. 

Shipping times will be delayed initially as they re-start operations and begin to work on back orders.  Please give them about two weeks before asking about specific PO’s as they work to navigate the situation.   

The factory is assuming all orders you’ve sent in prior to the factory pausing production remain current and will ship accordingly unless we hear from you.

They will continue to enter new orders for all finishes, create RMAs, respond to customer service inquiries, provide technical assistance, as well as ship critical components like valves and cartridges.  

We all eagerly look forward to a day very soon when they can safely expand production to the rest of the finishes.  But they will not do it any sooner than is believed to be safe for their employees and reflects the caring spirit of the stay at home order.  Flattening the curve and protecting the health of all, especially the most vulnerable, remains the number one priority.

* Note: If you are also a dealer of Dezi Home, those items will also begin shipping but in Polished Chrome only.

CALIFORNIA FAUCETS -  Posted: 04/14/20

Dear Friend of California Faucets,

While our marketing team continues to work remotely during California's "stay at home" order, we decided to produce a public service announcement to remind everyone how important it is to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.  Dubbed the "Wash Your Paws" campaign, we hope it brings a smile to your face.  We hope you'll share this entertaining but important message with all your friends and associates. 

We have two fabulous pets to share with you! Click the link below to see the video on your preferred platform.

Cooper: Facebook  |  Instagram
Baloo: FacebookInstagram

Want to get in on this public service campaign?  Take a photo or video of your pet washing their paws and email it to us at, so we can share it on our Facebook and/or Instagram.  And don't forget to wash your own paws for at least 20 seconds!

Stay healthy!

CALIFORNIA FAUCETS -  Posted: 04/06/20


Dear Select Dealers:

I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy.  We understand that everyone is operating under difficult circumstances while navigating this unprecedented and rapidly changing situation.  We are doing our best to be a good business partner, a valued supplier, and an overall good world citizen during this difficult COVID-19 crisis.

I want to take a moment to update the current status of operations at California Faucets, Dezi Home and PVD Coatings.  While we could try to argue that we meet the “technical” classification of essential, we cannot in good conscience put our employees at risk of exposure, nor the community-at-large.  We believe we need to err on the side of protecting lives rather than short term commerce.  For these reasons, we have elected to continue to keep our production facility closed in accordance with the State of California “Stay at Home” order.

However, we continue to work remotely and have a very minimal staff in the factory to continue serving urgent needs (e.g. roughs, cartridges, etc.).  Please note:

  •  We have bolstered the ability for more of our customer service staff to work from home in order to give you more prompt service. 
  •  We have updated lead time information for visibility on projected lead times once we are able to reopen at
  •  We continue to fulfill and ship essential repair parts, cartridges, rough valves, etc.
  •  While we have rough valves in stock and can ship them, we may not “allocate” larger stocking orders to ensure we have sufficient supply available for everyone (we don’t want our rough valve area to look like your local supermarket toilet paper shelf 😊).
  •  We cannot accept returns at this time as there are no personnel in the factory to receive and process them.

 In addition, please note the following important contact information to reach our team working from home:

  •  For new orders:  We will continue to receive and process new orders via email only at  We will enter them as usual and you should receive an emailed order confirmation as always, but we will not begin production until the factory re-opens.  
  •  For all customer service-related questions:  We will respond to you as swiftly as circumstances will allow, so thank you for your patience and understanding.
  •  For technical questions:  If you need to speak directly to a technician, please include a phone number, and the on-duty technician will contact you.
  •  For accounting questions:

 In the meantime, don't forget to sanitize, wash your hands, and maintain social distance in accordance with the guidance from scientific experts.

 Stay Safe, 

 Jeff Silverstein

On that note, we all know that copper and its alloys, brass and bronze, do kill bacteria.  While we cannot go so far as to say these alloys kill the COVID-19 virus, the supporting research demonstrates that it does kills coronaviruses.

  • There are five new finishes, all of which are Tier 3 pricing

    • Frost ™ Black (19F), and
    • Frost ™ Chrome (26F)


  • The restocking fee for Tanners Craft has increased to 50% because the handles are truly made specifically for your customer and they do a good job making sure the leather NEVER comes off (which makes it very, very hard to handle a Tanners Craft return).


  • For certain Tanners Craft custom length pieces, a die charge of $100.00 NET will be added to the cost of the order if they do not currently have a die for the requested size.  The items that will require custom dies are: L270, L271, L272, L273, L275, L276, L460 and L711.  The custom die insures that the quality of the customized hardware meets your expectations.

Did you know that Colonial Bronze…

 …offers over 67,000 items!

…makes everything from scratch in their USA factory

…does many custom items for clients with specific needs

 Colonial Bronze helps clients get what they truly want; no need to “settle” for what is available or what other hardware companies can offer that is “close enough.”

This also helps combat the erosion of the market to home centers and internet-based only outlets. 

And it can be profitable.  It takes just as much time to sell a $7 knob as it does a $37 knob.

But not now!!

TEN different style options to complement each of our faucets series (we love details just like you).

In the interest of communicating accurate lead time information to our customers, we would like to inform you of the following two issues from California Faucets:

  •  The current inventory of ribbon spouts-- used in the 72 and 78 Series-- are not meeting their strict quality standards when it comes to polished finishes.  Therefore, they are temporarily not accepting orders for any 72 or 78 Series faucets in polished finishes until further notice.  These finishes include:  Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, Polished Brass, Lifetime Polished Gold, French Gold, and Black Nickel.  The 72 and 78 Series may, however, still be ordered in all other finishes.
  • The current inventory used in their Deluxe Angle Stop program is not meeting their normal quality standards.  In an abundance of caution, they are not shipping any pending orders, nor accepting any new orders, for all finishes until further notice.  The affected SKU’s are: 9000, 9001, 9004, and 9005 and also Angle Stop Kits that contain the affected SKU’s: 9820 to 9834, 9851, & 9853.

 California Faucets apologizes for this inconvenience and would like to assure their valued customers that they are working diligently to resolve the above issues. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

A brief discussion on whether to select Living Finishes or PVD Finishes for your faucets…

Living finishes are uncoated metal; they’re beautiful, like a fine piece of jewelry.  But they will uniquely age and change over time.  Finish care instructions must be followed!

PVD finishes, or Physical Vapor Deposition, come with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.  Super-hard and molecularly bonded, PVD is by far the most durable finish available.

Why select a PVD finish?  After all, the most commonly heard objection to PVD is “Living Finishes are more beautiful.” 

This is true.  From a purely artisan point of view, many clients say they look better when compared to PVD finishes.  However, once PVD finishes are installed in the bath or kitchen, there will be no side by side comparisons so the PVD finish will look good and remain stable for many, many years.  Not so with Living Finishes!

Living Finishes constantly change (patina) and require much more care if you want to avoid an uneven or “blotchy” look.  When more than one Living finish faucet is installed in the bath or kitchen, they can even look very different from each other!

For a more even look, faucet wax should be applied to Living Finishes ASAP after installation.  Plumbers usually have chemicals on their hands, which transfers directly to the uncoated metal of Living Finishes during the installation.  This will affect the patina process where they touched the faucet.

Additionally, faucet wax should be reapplied on a regular basis.  Living finishes are a commitment that must be explained and understood during the sales process.

On the other hand, PVD requires little care.  It is like an inexpensive insurance; pay a little more now for the faucet but you are covered with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.

California Faucets offers 13 PVD finishes, more than any other Manufacturer we know of!   Consider a PVD finish like Carbon (CB) or Mocha Bronze (MOB), when thinking about using a Living Finish like Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB).

Another common complaint we hear from Homeowners is “no one told me what will happen to my Living Finish!”  Let’s be sure to continue to educate clients on the differences so they know what they are buying.  Otherwise, we increase our chances for a finish complaint and loss of good will.

California Faucets had a record setting month in March; we thank all our customers for their support! 

We are also pleased to report that despite the wonderful spike in volume, we currently do not anticipate significant delays in shipping, with one exception... 

The only item that currently merits mentioning is our Terra Mar 78 Series ribbon spout (formerly the 72 Series).  We are unfortunately experiencing some spot outages and delays on the 78 Series lav and vessel faucets.  The delay on this particular series faucet may range anywhere from 0-4 weeks.
