Designed to simulate dry-stacked stone walls, ChiselCrete combines the strength and durability of pre-cast concrete with the texture and look of hand-laid stone. Formed and poured into molds at the manufacturing facility, the pre-cast concrete is shipped to the jobsite as components that can be quickly erected, saving installers time and money. ChiselCrete stones can be used as free-standing or retaining walls to add a hardscape component to homes' landscapes. The maker uses recycled cementitious material to reduce the amount of cement used. Integral colors eliminate the release of VOCs at the jobsite. 800.511.2747. www.artisanprecast.com.

Selected for models in its Swing C series of fixtures, the maker introduces its rubbed bronze decorative finish. The new finish's vintage appeal complements traditionally styled decors. Rubbed bronze is a lacquer finish that is darker than oil-rubbed bronze. Applied by hand-brushing, the finish reveals bronze and copper tones that create the appearance of a more aged piece. Both finishes are 'non-living,' which means they will not chemically change or patina over time. 800.334.0455. www.hansgrohe-usa.com.
New Touch-In Handles give kitchen cabinets and furniture fronts a handle-less look. The unconventional handle features a decorative panel that can be provided with a stick-on laminate inlay or lacquered finish to match the design of the cabinet front. A decorative panel in polished chrome or brushed stainless steel is also available. Though the handle sits flat and flush with the front, by pressing in the trim panel, the recessed finger pull is made accessible from any direction for convenient opening. www.hettichamerica.com. 800.438.8424.
