Last September, while Lou and I were in Atlanta on an IKEA–run, we visited EXPO Design Center, at Will and Matthew’s suggestion, to check out their plumbing fixture offerings.

“Prepare to see a lot of stuff you’ll really want… that’s way outside of your budget,” warned Will. He wasn’t kidding. EXPO “carries the most luxurious and innovative products picked from around the world,” most of it in displayed in “lifestyle vignettes” toward the back of the store.

After about an hour or so of marveling at Phillipe Starck-designed Axor fixtures by Hansgrohe and Duravit toilets and tubs (and reeling from their prices!), we headed back up front to browse the aisles of items the store had on hand.

Liane and I had really had our sights set on a spray faucet for the kitchen. So far, though, the long search for one able to satisfy our taste as well as our budget had proven fruitless (IKEA’s Hjuvik single lever faucet came close, but we weren’t all that keen on the separate faucet and sprayer functionality—and, although apparently manufactured by Moen, we were nervous about the Hjuvik’s durability)…

Until we spotted the one. Two aisles up from the Kohler Persuades that, er, persuaded us, there it was—LaToscana’s Elba Magnetic Spray Pull Out Kitchen Faucet in Chrome.

Simple, sleek, magnetic. We were instantly drawn to it (sorry ’bout the pun)… so much so, that, upon returning home, Liane scoured the interwebs in the hopes that there might be an Elba suite of fixtures that’d be more to our liking than the other options (Kohler, Delta, Price Pfister) we’d seen in our price range at EXPO…

…and, lo and behold, she found it here!
