Okay, it's shower time.... in our full bathroom remodel, we're at the point of needing to decide on fixtures. It's a very modern design (glass vessel sink, granite vanity top, etc.) so we'd like something a little different but functional in the bathtub. We kind of liked the Delta Arzo series, but I noticed that I could only find the diverter spout if I bought the 3-piece system, including the showerhead (the tub-only system comes with a non-diverting spout). The problem is, we don't want that showerhead, we want one with a hand-held option. Is our only option to purchase the 3-piece set and dump (or E-bay) the showerhead?

On a related note, we are drawn to the in2ition combined showerhead (only available at Lowe's -- http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=23129-2145-75480SN )... this seems to only be available in brushed nickel, but I could swear I'd seen one in chrome. Anybody know about this? (Or, better yet, know of any other combination showerheads of this sort that would fit in with a contemporary motif?)

Many thanks.

Have you looked at anything from Grohe or Toto (yes, Toto also makes things other than toilets!)?
