THE HOUSE OF ROHL BATHROOM EXPERIENCE
This year at KBIS, House of Rohl, a portfolio of luxury plumbing brands, brought to life the intersection between exquisite design and personal wellbeing as many put a greater emphasis on how the body and mind are equally impacted by their surroundings.
“Today, there’s a transformation in how our customers define their bathroom and kitchen spaces,” noted Justin Storm, Group Product Manager at House of Rohl. “In particular, the bathroom has become a serene sanctuary where function marries mindfulness. It is a place for wellness rituals and spa-like treatments that encourage immersion in a setting that helps erase the everyday. Our latest product introductions capture the need for an elegant retreat while empowering whole home design in a way that only House of Rohl can through our portfolio of five global luxury brands.”
In partnership with Wallpaper*, Victoria + Albert reinforces its brand leadership in the space with the launch of three new color palettes for 2022. These new palettes, aptly described as Bathitecture, deliver on the consumer desire for personalization and can be applied to Victoria + Albert tubs and sinks, and provide design inspiration for aspects of the bathroom, such as wall colors, cabinetry and décor. Influenced by architectural styles of the 20th century, the palettes represent distinct worlds of design: Belgian Minimalism, composed of calm, soft colors like light blues, pastels and slate greys, reflects simplicity and serenity; Brazilian Modernism, a rich, earth tone palette with deep reds, greens and blues, is reminiscent of South American architecture; and American Postmodernism, a spectrum of industrial shades with pops of color, creates a statement-making environment for the bath.
Reflecting the heritage revival-style trend of mixing old with new, ROHL introduces the Apothecary Collection for the bath. Taking inspiration from angular antique bottles that once held potent elixirs and are now sought-after collectables, Apothecary transforms vintage design into a silhouette of contoured elegance and nuanced simplicity for homeowners who seek the rare, elusive and uncommon. The collection is comprised of faucets, tub fillers, accessories and shower solutions in a number of finishes for an eclectic yet elegant bathroom.
