Copper interest sparks new tap finish
It seems copper sinks are having a bit of a style moment. In recent months Brass and Traditional Sinks' range of copper sinks have been used in TV ads and photo shoots as well as on Sarah Beeny's 'Double Your House for Half the Money' TV series on Channel 4.
In response to increased interest, the company has launched a new tap finish to complement the sinks. The weathered brass finish has been developed specifically with copper in mind, so has a characterful rustic appearance without excessive shine. It is available on all of the company's own brand taps within the British-made Rudge 1901 series.
Managing Director, Stephen Thompson comments, "We thrive on being able to offer exclusivity and choice to customers, and we felt there was a gap in the market for a tap finish to complement the stunning hues of our copper sinks. We're thrilled with the result."
The Rudge 1901 series of taps is exclusive to Brass and Traditional Sinks, and the weathered brass finish can be applied to all seven of its designs, including the Oxley, Compton and Bilbrook models. The finish works particularly well with sinks from the company's Eclectica range of hand-hammered copper sinks. The range has a copper sink to suit all requirements, from the 1.5 bowl Chateau to the small round Elle, ideal for use as an island prep sink or even a cloakroom basin.
The new weathered brass finish is available now and can be seen in the company's Shropshire-based showroom and on the website www.sinks.co.uk where online orders can be placed. Alternatively the company's knowledgeable team are on 01384 220030 for orders, advice and information.
