Another manufacturer that gives a nod to nature is Moen. The distinctive look of bamboo cane was the guiding aesthetic for the Bamboo faucet from Moen's Powder Room collection (www.moen.com). The open-top spout, in the shape of a bamboo reed, spills water into the sink like a waterfall.
"I think that [the reed] style will be somewhat mainstream in the next few years," says Jeff Settle, owner of Settco Inc., a Fresno, Calif.-based company that sells bathroom hardware on the West Coast.
New technology and an increasing appreciation for purposeful design have made the faucet an important feature in bathroom decor.
