Having a vision is one thing. But it's what comes next—the risk-taking and recruiting, the sleepless nights and countless hours—that turn that dream into a reality.

“I have six words that have been my guide forever,” says Barbara Sallick, founder of American kitchen-and-bath brand Waterworks. “Balance, proportion, scale, and good, better, best. Those words have allowed me to design truly amazing products that stand the test of time.” As technology continues to enter homes, Sallick believes customers will be drawn more and more to tactile elements. So the fact that her now-iconic brand is known for fittings, fixtures, lighting, vanities, surfaces, and hardware crafted with real, organic materials is no surprise.
