Classic Sculpted Towel Ring from the Forte Collection
worst Kohler purchase ever
We paid a premium for two of these good -looking Kohler products because of their reputation for quality, but we bought a lemon - the fitting where the ring fits into, is fundamentally flawed and after 3 years of it continually coming loose, it finally wore away and broke. Got no joy when my husband called Kohler today telling them of the problem (there are similar complaints online about this towel ring); in fact, he was made to feel it was our fault.
We bought a replacement alright but from Moen.
We will NEVER buy Kohler again and I would urge consumers to stay away from this towel ring - we saw exactly the same issue with the one on display at our local store.

Beautiful towel ring
I purchased two of these in brushed nickel for our remodeled master bath. I noted that a few peole felt it was too large, but it seems just the right size for a hand towel with a washcloth over it. The shape is really quite elegant and looks great with the Forte line faucets. One of the towel rings was loose at the set screw that holds the loop to the part that attaches, but rather than have it replaced, my installer epoxed it and it is nice and sturdy now, it was an easy fix.

This line of Products (Kohler Forte Series) belongs in a bath that you want to exude luxury. These accessories are superbly manufactured, and install easily. Of course, they should given the cost. But, if you want luxury products that perform, Kohler Forte will not disappoint you.

The towel ring itself is of good quality, but it is exceedingly large. I would only recommend for a large bathroom with a great deal of wall space. I ended up returning because it took up the entire wall where I wanted to hang the hand towel.

Just a little too large for hand towels. The size created a problem with installation. I do like the fact the ring does not swing back and forth like other towel rings

Pretty and Solid
I bought all new Forte products for a bathroom I constructed in my basement. All of the Kohler Forte products are high quality. This towel ring does not swing, so just realize that it's stationary. I personally think that this helps keep the bathroom looking tidy.

This matches our faucet and is very elegant. I love the brushed bronze, since we don't want to pay to replace our brass shower enclosure. The brushed bronze looks very modern and rich makes it all work, especially with the other accessories we've added.

Great, solid piece. Looks great. Unfortunatley it is all one solid piece. The loop doesn't have a hinge to allow it to swing back and forth. Not a biggie, though.

I love these towel rings. They were bigger than I thought they would be but it turned out great for the thicker heavier towels. They look really nice

These towel rings are large. I am using them to hang bath towels up in a cramped space...a great alternative to "squeezing" in double towel bars!
