The Kohler K-6131-4 has a name that’s hard to remember. But the quality will be hard to forget. However, the overall design has some surprising weaknesses for such an expensive faucet, along with several strengths.
The Danze Opulence D404557 does a superb job of re-creating the look of a late 19th century/early 20th century faucet. The bridge design is classic and, like any classic, never goes entirely out of style. At the same time, this unit is so well made, and of such good materials, that you’ll never think of it as antique in function.
It’s not often a reviewer gets to praise both the appearance and working of a faucet. Usually there’s some compromise involved. But when it comes to the Belle Foret BFN110 01 bridge faucet there’s no need. It’s an ideal blend of fine function and good looks. The Belle Foret BFN110 01 may not have a name that falls trippingly off the tongue, as Shakespeare would say. There’s no reason not to admire its features, though.
