Anyone familiar with Kohler knows that the Wisconsin-based company is often ahead of other brands as far as technology and design are concerned. When it comes to overwrought and decadent toilets, however, the company is playing catch up with Japanese brands TOTO and Inax. Still, Kohler’s recent introduction of the Numi toilet ups the ante. No ordinary toilet, Numi makes your commode look like a latrine. The unit has a built-in bidet and deodorizer, a lid that opens and closes automatically, built-in music system; heated seat and foot warmer; and an LCD touch-screen remote control (of course) in case you want to feel like you’re playing X-box in the John. It offers two flushing options: 1.28 gallons of water or .6. The question remains: Do you need a toilet that costs $6,400? www.kohler.com.
