Created by Beverly Hills interior designer Christopher Grubb, Mulholland is the first of four new drain styles that the company will be introduced in the coming months.
“With its labyrinth of twists and turns, Mulholland represents the essence of Christopher’s new StyleDrain designs,” says Noah Taft, senior vice president of marketing and sales at California Faucets. “It’s fresh and modern, yet versatile enough to work with just about any style of décor.”

Inspired by the dramatic curves that overlook Los Angeles along famed Mulholland Drive, Mulholland StyleDrain invites architects, designers, and homeowners to make a stylized statement in the shower, the company says. But more than just a pretty accessory, the spiral decorative grid unit is made of solid brass so it won’t bend underfoot, and does not have any visible screws.
“Mulholland StyleDrain is like a piece of jewelry for the shower,” says Grubb, president and founder of Arch-Interiors Design Group. “It gives you that beauty-is-in-the-details touch. And just as jewelry can be worn in both formal and casual ways, Mulholland can be ‘dressed up’ or ‘dressed down’ depending on the selected finish.”
Designed to instantly elevate the design of any new bath or remodel, the StyleDrain is the ideal finishing touch for today’s luxurious bathroom designs, the company says. From eclectic “Hollywood glam” and sleek, modern styles to today’s popular industrial and transitional looks, the new line offers concepts that fit a broad array of design styles.
In additon to the spiral-styled Mulholland, the collection includes the herringbone-patterned Roxbury, named for the epicenter of Hollywood glamour—Roxbury Drive; the crisp and angular Camden, reminiscent of the city’s strong ties to Mid-Century Modern design; and the flower-like Strathmore, which calls to mind springtime in Southern California, the company says.
Mulholland measures 5¼ inches square and comes in 28 finishes, including non-tarnish and ultra-durable Physical Vapor Deposition options. It’s priced from $239 (for polished chrome) to $382 (for premium finishes such as Black Nickel).
