I was honored when Phillip James Dodd (an author and expert on classical architecture and interiors) asked me to write a chapter for his new book on the subject of collaboration. He also invited 16 other architects, designers, landscape architects, vendors and artisans to contribute their views as well. It is clear that teamwork and partnership are pivotal to successfully launching any new product, building a house or developing a new way of thinking. At Waterworks, we work in cross-functional teams where the expertise of our partners, from creative design and financial planning to sourcing and purchasing, is critical to the success of a project.

Naturally, the faucet is the most used appliance in your kitchen. In thinking about this important purchase, keep in mind its dual personality; not only should it be compatible with the design of the kitchen, it also must be unequivocally functional.

We are continually inspired by texture and the way something feels — rough, smooth, three-dimensional. It’s an important visual design element we look for in objects, fabrics, architecture and paintings.
