Thanks to everyone who offered us their opinions on what faucet we should use in the downstairs powder room. We decided to take advantage of Restoration Hardware's Annual Bath Event and selected this faucet in polished nickel from the Vintage collection. She's a beaut, isn't she?
I wanted to match the finish of the faucet to the sconces that we also got from Restoration Hardware. The online description of the sconces wasn't very helpful--all it said was polished silver plated or something vague like that. I had no idea whether to order chrome or polished nickel. If I had to choose, I would have gone with the chrome. So I'm glad that I went to view it in person because seeing the faucet against the sconce showed that polished nickel was a better choice. It looks much warmer compared to the cooler chrome finish.
We got the TP holder and towel ring from the same collection.
