Kohler Ombre Faucet Awarded Best of the Year by Interior Design Innovative new finish wins prominent industry accolade

KOHLER, Wis. (December 12, 2018) – Kohler Co., a global leader in kitchen and bath design, was recently honored with a top distinction for the Ombré Faucet at Interior Design’s 2018 Best of Year Awards. The annual awards are the industry's premier design awards program, honoring the most significant work of the year and recognizing designers, architects, and manufacturers from around the globe.

Recently launched, the Ombré finish for kitchen and bath faucets uses an innovative technique that melds two vibrant metal finishes together to render a subtle but striking transition from light to dark. Kohler has taken a familiar product and, inspired by the worlds of fashion and modern design, created an uncommon showpiece that is unlike anything else on the market. The finish comes in two fabrications: Vibrant Rose Gold to Vibrant Polished Nickel, and Vibrant Titanium to Vibrant Rose Gold.

The Ombré Vibrant finish is available on a curated selection of Kohler plumbing products including Components and Sensate. Homeowners can express their personal taste by using faucets with this finish as an integral design component for their home décor.

Project and product winners were announced in New York City at the River Pavilion, Javits Center on November 30th in a ceremony hosted by Interior Design editor in chief Cindy Allen. In total, the Best of Year Awards included an astonishing 2,000 entries and 586 finalists in 133 design categories. Kohler’s Verdera Voice with Amazon Alexa and Kensho sink were also finalists in the Bath Cabinetry and Bath Fixtures categories, respectively.
