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.
