Made to emulate alder wood - often used in interior floor planking - it even has scratches and stains. Including these defects has raised the bar on wood-look flooring. The ageing and wear l

It's like a science lesson and a stunning bathroom faucet rolled into one. Until it is turned on, it's another glass faucet spout. And then, the magic begins. When the mixer is turned on, a water vortex is created -- and sent rushing up the glass spout where it cascades out like a waterfall. And you can see the whole thing.
