Earthy Tones and Subtle Neutrals Make These Kitchen and Bath Products Stand Out

From monochromatic appliances to durable materials, these eight products are sure to center any kitchen or bathroom. 

1. Jason Wu for Brizo

Product: SmartTouch Pull-Down Faucet

2. Susie Atkinson for Drummonds

Product: Whitewater

Standout: The interior designer and manufacturer, both British classicists, riff on the contoured silhouette and imperial feet of cast-iron slipper baths for this enameled tub painted the palest rose.

3. Fiona Stewart of Margate Tile Works

4. Alberto Sánchez and Eduardo Villalón for Harmony

5. George Yabu and
Glenn Pushelberg for Salvatori

Standout: The Yabu Pushelberg founding partners and Interior Design Hall of Fame members build upon their product pro­wess with this collection that includes a Gris du Marais marble countertop basin resembling molded clay.

6. Francesco Lucchese of Fir Italia

7. Céline Cornu for ZigZagZurich

Product: Kaleidoskop

Standout: The cotton shower curtain
is printed with a joyful pattern developed by the French textile designer, before being sealed with a surprisingly soft waterproof acrylic coating.
