Price Pfister® and Kwikset® Create The
Distinctly New Architecturally Inspired Collections™
Introducing the Ashfield and Avalon Collections,
Fashioned to Provide Architectural Consistency in the Home
Lake Forest, CA – December 2005 - Take two amazing brands, each
with a track record of unsurpassed quality and innovation, bring them together
with matching style and finishes, and you get Architecturally Inspired
Collections™ by Kwikset and Price Pfister. These collections blend the essence
of the most popular architectural styles and simplify product selection.
The first two Architecturally Inspired Collections to be introduced in
January 2006 are the Ashfield™ Collection and the Avalon™ Collection, with
additional collections planned for the future.
Both lines consist of newly designed faucets, shower heads, door hardware and
bathroom accessories that feature complementary styles and distinctive matching
finishes. The traditional country-inspired Ashfield Collection is fashionable
and flexible. This seemingly eclectic style brings together time-honored country
traditions, while the sleek coastal-inspired Avalon has a slight touch of the
coast, aesthetically coexisting with any color scheme or decor.
The Ashfield and Avalon Collections will be available in an array of elegant,
richly detailed matching finishes. These finishes include Polished Chrome, Satin
Nickel, Rustic Pewter™, Rustic Bronze™, and Venetian (Tuscan) Bronze™. Each
finish carries a lifetime anti-tarnish warranty. Additional finishes are
available on selected products.
“This marks the first time that these two Black & Decker Hardware and
Home Improvement Group companies have worked together to produce collaborative
product lines. Each Architecturally Inspired Collection provides a unified
design theme achieving a meaningful look and feel in any room or home,” said Jim
Caudill, President, Black & Decker Hardware and Home Improvement Group.
