With such brands as Hansgrohe, Dornbracht, and Grohe, the Germans seemingly have the luxury faucet market locked up among high-end consumers, interior designers, and architects. (That’s not to say there aren’t some good American brands though) At any rate, the new K7 kitchen faucet from Grohe shows German design in all its glory. As expected, the professional-looking unit features minimalist curves and sleek lines. A ceramic disk cartridge is standard, and you can choose from an array of custom options such as single-lever mixer with pull-out handspray. www.grohe.com.
