Was with TE this weekend…wandering around, of all places, a kitchen and bath showroom. While TE was off looking at some kind of guy thing…like shiny ovens, I happened upon this faucet from THG Paris. I had never heard of the brand…but apparently they make luxury fittings and hardware for bathrooms and kitchen.
There were hundreds, maybe thousands of faucets and plumbing fixtures in this store…and the only one I wanted to ask about was this one. I loved it immediately. The knobs did it for me…completely. I found the whole look very elegant.
When I waved the salesperson down and asked him the price of this pretty bath faucet with “O” shaped round knobs, I nearly fell over. He said “Oh I think this one is about $4600 and some of these in this line go up to $15,000”. I was like one of those cartoon characters shaking my head back and forth to make sure my ears were clear and that I was hearing right. Yes…$4,600! What?
I had a minute or two to look again at it…and I must say it was absolutely beautiful. Could I ever afford a $4600 faucet for just one sink in one bath…probably not. That didn’t matter…I began to fall deeply in love…with…a faucet.
Well, then my guy TE came back from his stove trek and asked me what was wrong. With my eyes glistening and face glowing, I excitedly said to him, “I love this. I love it. Don’t you?” With his eyes half mast and a very neutral look on his face…he said, “Not really. It’s okay.” And then he turned and walked off towards a modern and shiny waterfall shower head. Hmmm….
How could he not love it? What? Why was it so expensive? Why am I even looking at faucets in the first place? All of these important thoughts ran through my head.
Then I took to Instagram for validation…I asked my COCOCOZY biased following of nearly 10,000 what they thought…I did not tell them the price…but on aesthetics alone…they seemed to like. (Follow me by clicking here on COCOCOZY Instagram btw.)
Anyhoooooooooo. In case you must have this faucet, details are as follows: it is from Collection “O” from THG Paris.
The most expensive THG Paris faucets seem to be the ones with crystal knobs…they’ve partnered with famous French houses like Lalique, Christofle, Daum and more to create faucets with glass and crystal knobs that make the spouts look like jewelry.
Just thought you might put this in your design file!
