Oakville, Ontario... Imagine the modern kitchen of your dreams... oversized white marble countertops with industrial aluminum supports... tubular, pendant lamps... commercial-grade appliances, textured walls with a pop of vibrant colours... just to name a few items on the wish list. And the perfect finishing touch? The bold, modern faucets in the new STō™ collection from Moen. Featuring a slim, sleek design, the full-line suite offers a distinctive style that can be carried throughout today's premium kitchen -- from the main sink to the bar/prep areas.

"Pulldown faucets continue to be the most popular kitchen faucet choice; yet many feature traditional or transitional designs," said Garry Scott, vice president, wholesale marketing and brand development, Moen Canada. "STō's style is simple and sleek -- appealing to the growing market demand for more modern faucet styles. And luxury homeowners will appreciate the thoughtful design details that truly make this faucet collection unique."

The style of the STō faucet stands out, thanks to a distinctive combination of geometric lines. The beautiful, rounded high-arc spout features a tubular design, which then unites with a strong, cube-shaped base. Adding the finishing touch is a rectangular lever handle.

While all elements combine perfectly to create a stunning form, one of the most distinctive elements of the STō suite is the innovative, integrated pulldown wand which neatly docks inside the spout. The two-function wand still provides all of the functionality and ease-of-use of a traditional pulldown wand (with the choice of a steady, aerated stream for everyday cleaning or a spray for rinsing); yet its enclosed design enables it to have a more streamlined appearance -- making the seam invisible.

Available in both single-handle pulldown kitchen and bar/prep pulldown models, STō faucets also feature Moen's innovative Reflex® system, which offers self-retraction of the wand, as well as an exceptional range of motion, generous reach, and secure docking retraction. Thanks to a resistance-free hose and optimized weight that provides the perfect force, STō's hose return is fast and effortless. Additionally, STō utilizes the Moen 1255® Duralast® cartridge for a consistently smooth handle feel and the highest levels of quality and durability for the life of the faucet.

Another thoughtfully designed element in the STō collection is the optimized handle design, for maximum handle-to-backsplash clearance, even when the faucet is installed near the backsplash, ensuring a full range of temperature control.

The STō kitchen suite is offered in three on-trend, modern finishes: Chrome, Matte Black, a dramatic finish that complements black or stainless/black kitchen appliances and accessories, and Spot Resist™ Stainless, which resists fingerprints and water spots to maintain a brilliant finish. STō faucets also feature the Moen limited lifetime warranty* to ensure superior quality.
