Moen Fills the Gap When It Comes to Modern Freestanding Tub Designs
Freestanding tubs, from the traditional claw-foot to modern-sculptural styles, are on the rise as a focal point in spalike bathrooms. That naturally begets a need for stand-alone fillers. Moen comes through with a host of offerings, including Align, a transitional option that suits both ends of the aesthetic spectrum. The one-handle faucet—which features an optimum flow rate for quick tub filling—comes in chrome, matte black, and Lifeshine brushed nickel or brushed gold finishes. “Lifeshine” refers to the finish’s durability: guaranteed not to tarnish, corrode, or flake off under normal use. Addressing wobbling concerns common to floor-mounted tub fillers, the manufacturer’s proprietary bracket system ensures the faucet remains still as a statue.
