I was drawn to this faucet because I wanted something non-traditional that looked like it would go in a turn=of-the-century home. I read the reviews so I knew this was black in color which is what I wanted against my stainless steel farmer sink. I absolutely love this faucet and sprayer. I get comments on it because it is so unusual. I highly recommend this if you're not the type to have the same faucet as everyone else. It was easy to install and is a good value.
