The new Raindance E showerhead by Hansgrohe is uniquely rectangular, chosen with the shape of the human body in mind - particularly the width of the shoulders. These new showerheads are available in three sizes, up to 17" wide, in chrome, brushed nickel and polished nickel. Thanks to their slim design and reduced height, the showerheads have a light appearance. The E 420 2-Jet offers the wide Rainflow waterfall spray for an entirely unique shower experience. Available locally at Ferguson Enterprises and Keller Supply Co. www.hansgrohe-usa.com
The Abrazo freestanding bath's unique organic shape makes it a natural focal point of your contemporary bath. Made from exclusive Kohler Lithocast solid-surface material, Abrazo has a matte finish that resembles real stone, but feels warm to the touch. And, it's easy to clean.

Reminiscent of 19th century water pumps, Graff took an outdated product and not only scaled it down for residential use, they updated the "pump" mechanism that requires nothing more than a slight lift - no priming of this pump necessary. The Bali Collection retains its unique ties to both past and present. Perfect for adding a touch of traditionalism coupled with a more modern polished chrome finish. In its more raditional olive bronze finish, it fits right in as an elegant and respectful ode to days gone by. The floor-mounted exposed tub filler stands up to 38-9/16", and comes with a handshower with a 59" flexible hose. Available locally at Pacific Plumbing. www.graff-faucets.com

A Korean engineering breakthrough three years in the making, AirJet showerheads are made from a patented vacuum valve built at the end of the shower head designed to increase water pressure via air intake. AirJet also utilizes the Venturi Effect of fluid mechanics, which generates a high-pressured shower while using only half the water. AirJet comes with a satisfying high-pressure of up to 80 psi and uses as little as 1.5 gallons per minute. The product is compatible with all typical home showers. Even in dated buildings with old piping – resulting in a trickling, low-pressure water system rather than high-pressured spray – AirJet can step in as an economical alternative to replacing the entire piping system. www.efandbiotech.com
The new decorative square shower drains by California Faucets put an elegant end to your shower, each with its own distinctive stylish pattern.

The drains are easy to work with, and installing tile around these simple square covers couldn't be simpler. The large-scale drains allow water to evacuate quickly and are capable of handling the flow from your favorite rain shower and waterfall fixtures.
