Newport Brass®: California Craftsmanship at its Finest

The idea of “going West” isn’t just for wayward writers looking for inspiration; design trends seen around the USA and beyond often start in California. From floor-to-ceiling windows, sun roofs, and homes with white exteriors and soft edges, the sunny Golden State lifestyle has been at the heart of many projects elsewhere. And that’s just one part of it– the beaches, forests, and lavish cities have influenced designers in their own right. From protecting the natural environment up and down the coast to capturing the spirit of some unmistakable cities, one design and manufacturing brand brings California’s signature essence into any kitchen or bath project.

Newport Brass first turned on their taps in 1987 and has since provided complete collections of faucets and matching accessories, launched a sister brand GINGER, and taken on projects from boutique hotels to high-end homes all while maintaining a California ethos. Their products are constructed from solid brass giving every piece long lasting durability. Everything from their design studio to their state-of-the-art plating facility and assembly crew of master craftsmen all call the state home. Newport Brass’ California love has inspired the brand to take extra steps to ensure sustainability practices are central to their production.

Protecting and conserving the environment cannot be done alone. A proud partner in the EPA’s WaterSense® program, Newport Brass’s products meet CALGreen and California Economic Commission standards. The quality of their thoughtfully crafted designs is not sacrificed for environmentally sound processes– durable and timeless, every faucet, shower system, and accessory is manufactured without causing harm to California’s wild flora and fauna.

For homeowners and hotel managers alike, maintenance – or a lack thereof – is a problem Newport Brass solves.  In hospitality spaces, products that are leaky, scratched up, flimsy can wreak havoc on guest satisfaction, not to mention an increase in labor costs for constant repairs.  Newport Brass has a leak testing program that assures product dependability – products look as good as they perform. The right accessories can make or break a hotel or restaurant’s bathroom; functionality is the key to enhancing the guest experience. As California is one of the most popular travel destinations, GINGER truly shines here with decorative grab bars, retractable robe hooks, and hotel shelves all in their ouevre of finishing touches.

Customization specifically for hospitality projects is also an option with Newport Brass. With  products available in 27 different decorative finishes, guests may just want to bring a little hotel into their home. At budget-friendly price points, Newport Brass elevates the design of any kitchen or bathroom.
