We should all be fortunate enough to be furnishing a loft. (Most of us are not.) Should you not be of the exposed-brick and enormous industrial windows crowd, these shower heads are still worth a look, just because they are beautiful. These shower heads are simple, but unusual. They're tough-looking but sophisticated. They have the right amount of chunk to look either modern, or rustic, or both. One is a bit sleeker and more feminine, but its odd triangular head is unique; it would definitely fit into a loft bathroom. Have fun drooling over these hip, hot shower heads, whether you are plumbing a bathroom in a loft or not.
The WaterBridge Shower Head by Sonoma Forge: There are several models of the WaterBridge exposed shower system, and they start at a list price of $2850. These rustic-looking designer shower heads are available in rustic copper, nickel, or oil-rubbed bronze. They are obviously an investment, but also a statement. The old-fashioned look belies a modern, water-efficient shower system. Nothing says, "My Internet start up is performing really well," like one of these puppies.
Gessi Segni Series: Although there are quite a few shower heads in the Gessi Segni Series, my favorite is the round tubular shower head. Though it is minimalist and futuristic, it expresses a sense of humor and whimsy.
TOTO Guinevere High Efficiency Shower Head: The chunky connection hardware and concave rim are what caught my eye. Though the TOTO Guinevere is a bit more demure than the previous two shower heads, it has enough personality to match an industrial chic loft bathroom. At around $200 for the arm and shower head together, it's on the affordable end of the spectrum.
Altman's Anti Lime Rain Shower Head: I love the long arm of Altman's Anti Lime Rain Shower head. It's an old fashioned feature that takes a regular rain shower head and turns it into something hip enough to be installed in a DUMBO loft by one of Brooklyn's best plumbers. Contact a dealer for prices.
