Yes, there are other places to shop for faucets and shower sets, but what designers rave about is this longtime favorite's depth of stock, service, and the in-situ vignettes, so that even the creatively challenged can see how hardware will look installed. In addition to fittings, spigots, towel bars, and even bathrobes, Waterworks carries out-of-this-world fixtures, like the unbelievable egg-shaped matte tub in the .25 Collection. The Soho store, in particular, is a marvel of retail design, with acres of white subway tile and mosaic marble flooring.
