Found: The Perfectly Aged Brass Kitchen Faucet

January 8, 2016

“We like to make the kitchen design process easy for our customers so they don’t have to make too many decisions,” says Helen Parker, creative director of British kitchen company deVol. “Up to now, we’ve usually sourced our brass taps from antiques fairs or eBay. We love the look of them, but it became a bit of a pain trying to source these antique ones, so we knew we had to create an aged brass tap ourselves.”

Working with UK fixture specialists Perrin & Rowe, Helen and her team developed the perfect vintage-looking brass kitchen mixer faucet and related designs. “After many months of meetings and logo designs and samples, we came up with the deVol aged brass taps of a very specific tone,” she says. “We don’t usually offer our accessories to customers who aren’t installing a deVol kitchen, but these are too good to keep a secret, so we’re offering them to everyone. Give us a call at deVol if you want to know more.”
