American Standard is known as the middle-of-the-road U.S. brand that offers solid products of good-enough design (I’ve used it for years and have no complaints). If you’re looking for edgier stuff, you’ll have to turn to the company’s high-end Jado brand, which recently introduced a new contemporary line of kitchen and bath faucets. Intended to complement free-standing tubs, the floor-mount filler features ceramic cartridges and a fully integrated hand shower with a 5-foot decorative metal hose. The pot-filler has a single-control lever and an adjustable arm that extends 22 inches to make it easy to fill pots or folds out of the way. The tub fillers will set you back $800 to $920, while the pot fillers range from $695 to $834.
