This is a good choice for a contemporary towel ring. I liked the fact that it is open on the end and you don't have to loop a towel through a ring. It is being used in a man's bathroom and he thought a complete ring looked more feminine. To better fit the bathroom we flipped the ring so that the open side is on the left.
I looked at alot of units to match the Danze sink faucet I purchased after a lot of searching and I realized that I should have looked at the faucet makers offerings 1st. Well made, nice finish and a very nice departure from the badly made/badly designed towel rings that everyone else sells. I also like the stand off distance, towel does not lay against the wall when damp.
