The Friction paper towel holder from Umbra is a sleek, thoughtfully-designed solution for dispensing paper towels. The modern design and attractive brushed-nickel finish of the finial and base compliment a variety of kitchen decor styles. A rubber coating on the post and inside surface of the base creates light friction that keeps the roll from spinning and aides in one-handed tearing. The heavy base resists tipping and slipping. Unit measures 14-inch tall by 7-inch in diameter at the base. Designed by Alan Wisniewski for Umbra - the worldwide leader in casual, contemporary and affordable design for the home.
