Abode, award-winning designer and distributor of market leading kitchen taps, sinks, Pronteau instant hot water taps, bathroom taps & showering solutions embrace the growing trend for using natural materials in interior design with a series of timber-detailed kitchen innovations inspired by Mother Nature.
“Next year will continue to redefine the use of natural elements in the home, as many of us seek comfort and convenience from raw materials like wood, marble and natural stone, metal and glass. Incredibly hardwearing and versatile in design, the kitchen has become a playground for new levels of creativity and the very best room schemes are now exploring a more conscious design aesthetic which offers the same benefits as nature but in the home. Combinations of wood and metal have become our greatest natural resources for elevating the kitchen space as the premium market becomes more attuned to using natural materials within the built environment.
For us, the wet zone is the latest area in the kitchen helping to satisfy our customers ongoing affinity for nature with a selection of all-in-one mixer taps through to specialist water filter taps and complementary sinks ‘going natural’,” says Paul Illingworth, Design Manager at Abode.
Big conscience. Minimal impact – The Naturalé Aquifier Water Filter Tap delivers fresh, cold filtered water alongside your regular domestic hot and cold. A simple twist of the FSC®-certified Beechwood timber handle gives instant access to crystal clear, filtered water and is sourced from responsibly managed forests, so you can enjoy the benefits of quality raw materials while becoming part of the solution to plastic pollution. An ergonomic, teardrop-style single lever handle effortlessly controls the water with cold start valve integration, helping to reduce unnecessary boiler use and a 5Lp/m flow limiter helps households save up to 97% less water per minute… without a drop in pressure! Available in three modern finishes, Brushed Nickel, Chrome and Matt Black, this is a green tap solution for the modern kitchen with a big conscience and minimal impact to the environment. In addition, its Aquifier high resin filter is part of the Abode filter recycle scheme, so it can be returned and recycled free of charge.
