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.
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!

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!
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:
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.
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.

CALIFORNIA FAUCETS - 01/19/22
California Faucets has accumulated quite a few product awards over the years (https://www.calfaucets.com/awards) and we are pleased to announce that they recently added two more trophies to their collection.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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)!

Dear Valued Customer:
PLEASE INSERT INTO YOUR SPRING 2019 PRICE LIST
THE FURNITURE GUILD - 06/23/21
CALIFORNIA FAUCETS - 06/22/21
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.
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 - 06/17/21
The California Faucets model # 9190 “Tile StyleDrain” is now stocked at the factory in all available finishes! As you know, they are often needed at the beginning of a job, just like any other roughs.
The top edge of the inner frame (wherein the tile is set) and the top edge of the outer frame are what is finished.
Available finishes are Polished Chrome (PC), Blackened PVD (BKD), Polished Nickel PVD (PN), Polished Brass PVD (PB), Satin Gold Brass PVD (SGB) and Satin Stainless Steel PVD (SNN).

CALIFORNIA FAUCETS - 05/04/21
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
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 - 04/29/21
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.

We have added 2 new sink shapes for this year.
The Ascent2 and Ascent48.

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

THE FURNITURE GUILD - 04/05/21
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.

The new “Chilko 64” from Oceania Baths is a new free-standing tub with a unique shape.
The compact format comfortably accommodates one or two people and can easily work in classic or contemporary designs since it is both oval and rectangular.

DADOquartz has decided to discontinue the current versions of the BUDDY and GABBY bathtubs by the end of this year.
These are the only two tubs in the line that do not have internal overflow systems.
Therefore, this change will make all their tubs 100% internal overflow systems. No more ugly “waste and overflow” drains needed!

The BUDDY and GABBY may return in the future with internal overflows.

UPDATE FROM CALIFORNIA FAUCETS ON COMPANY OPERATIONS DURING THE COVID19 PANDEMIC
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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!

PLEASE READ THIS LETTER FROM JEFF SILVERSTEIN AT CALIFORNIA FAUCETS ABOUT THEIR COMPANY OPERATIONS DURING THE COVID19 PANDEMIC
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 https://www.calfaucets.com/covid19-lead-times
- 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 email@example.com. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to you as swiftly as circumstances will allow, so thank you for your patience and understanding.
- For technical questions: email@example.com. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, don't forget to sanitize, wash your hands, and maintain social distance in accordance with the guidance from scientific experts.
President & CEO

As many of you have already heard, the Governor of California, Gavin Newson, has issued an executive order (https://covid19.ca.gov/img/N-33-20.pdf) mandating that the entire state must “stay in place” except for critical services such as food and medical care.
What does this mean to you? California Faucets doesn't know how long the factory will be closed. The phones at this point will not be answered by humans: they are in the process of putting in place a voicemail system remotely. We will let you know when this system is up and working.
As this health crisis continues the Creative Bath Sales Team is here to help you with any questions or concerns.
Please stay safe and healthy!

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 - Posted: 11/21/18
The 2018 Dealers' Choice Award Voting is Running Through December 15th
DPHA manufacturers are market and design leaders. Their offerings represent best-in-class products that DPHA believes deserve recognition. That's why the DPHA Awards Committee added the Dealer's Choice Award a few years ago. This award - that was announced at this year's conference for 2017 and which was the California Faucets Morro Bay Single Hole Faucet - was added to place new products in front of the staffs of every DPHA dealer.
