Idea Flow

Even as the world shut down, Waterworks kept pumping. This September the luxury kitchen-and-bath brand cut the ribbon on its newly expanded New York City flagship, a three-story showcase with 4,000 additional square feet. Customers will now find lighting and surfaces intuitively arranged by color, workstations for designers to meet with clients, 12 streamlined metal finishes, and a range of new products, like the Dash and Foro faucets. Of course, at 12,500 square feet total, the space offers plenty of room to socially distance. waterworks.com
