"I first saw your outdoor shower at a friend's beach house out on Long Island. The house was on the ocean so the entire outdoor shower was coated in a rustic patina - it was phenomenal. I started specifying these in every project possible. Everyone raves about these showers. There are very few comparable outdoor products out there that can stand the test of salt air and become more beautiful over time. We will keep specifying these!"

"We were searching for high-quality plumbing fittings and accessories which were both bold and rustic, complementing the rural simplicity of the building. For the outdoor shower, it was particularly important to find copper fittings which would relate to the copper architectural details of the building exterior. For the interior, the darker bronze finish provided a crisp contrast to the white-washed pine walls. Coordinated cabinet hardware, hooks and accessories provided touches of the distinctive Sonoma Forge style throughout the building."

"We selected Sonoma Forge plumbing fixtures and sinks for these two guest bathroom remodels for their distinctive, yet timeless feeling. Their handcrafted story and beautiful finishes added a layer of patina and character to the rooms. These are smaller bathrooms without any important architectural interest, so we were able to create a feeling of luxury through the fixtures, lighting and tile. "

"Loved using Sonoma Forge on our Dry Creek project, because of two very important reasons: 1) Honesty of the aesthetic. Simple, clean and beautiful. 2) Function. Purely straight forward, balanced with multiple options. Perfect for an afternoon rinse-off! The client's love it as well. THANK YOU!"
