Burlington Chalfont

The new Chalfont furniture collection by Burlington brings a selection of storage solutions designed to add a traditional feel to the bathroom. Suitable for any design scheme, homeowners can choose from four sizes: 550mm, 650mm, 750mm and 1000mm, for seamless integration into cloakrooms, master family bathrooms and everything in-between.

Featured in three deluxe colourways all with a single drawer, Classic Grey, Blue and Matt Black, the Chalfont finishes bring an eye-catching centrepiece to complement every bathroom colour scheme.

Providing impressive design flexibility, Chalfont units can be wall-mounted or paired with optional legs, available in matching coloured paint or Chrome, Nickel and Gold finishes for a statement floor-standing design. Homeowners can pair the legs with matching handles for an ultra-luxurious look from top to bottom. For added grandeur, bathroom schemes can be enhanced with Burlington’s Gold, Chrome and Nickel brassware, including new Riviera brassware, for a cohesive and truly elegant design.

For a striking contrast, Chalfont’s silky Matt Black finish can be paired with stunning herringbone metro brick tiling, white surfaces and glorious gold finishes for a subtle pop of luxury. A more contemporary look can be attained with the soothing Matt Grey unit; this understated finish can be paired with geometric style flooring, grey wood panelling and traditional influences – resulting in an interior setting that is both sophisticated and on-trend.

Burlington Chalfont

Designed with plenty of storage to keep the bathroom looking its best, the new Chalfont furniture collection from Burlington promises a tranquil bathroom scheme that exudes quintessential British style.

White Tulip is the first complete bathroom range created entirely by Philippe Starck for Duravit. The range includes free-standing ceramic washbasins, round above-counter basins, matching free-standing and wall-mounted toilets and bidets, bathroom furniture, matching mirrors, taps and bathtubs.

The elegant shapes of the components within the series echoes the organic silhouette of a tulip in bloom; exuding an almost sculptural feel.

Basins

The monolithic design of the free-standing ceramic washbasin is particularly eye-catching. The washbasin can be attached to the wall or the floor as required.

Designed in the same style, the round above-counter basin has an aesthetically pleasing delicately outward sloping edge. The right-angled washbasin, when viewed from above, also reflects this form. Also available as a furniture washbasin and as a hand rinse basin, both come in two sizes and complete the range.

White Tulip Bathroom Range by Duravit

Bidets & Toilets

Matching free-standing and wall-mounted toilets and bidets complement the impressive ceramic elements. The White Tulip style is also found on the matching urinal. The toilets are equipped with the new HygieneFlush technology.

All new HygieneFlush toilets come with the tried and tested HygieneGlaze ceramic glaze as standard to guarantee even greater hygiene. Fired into the interior of the toilet, HygieneGlaze ensures that approx. 90% of bacteria (for example e. coli) are eradicated after six hours, and approx. 99.9% after 24 hours. The outstanding quality of White Tulip is also reflected in its new lifetime guarantee, which Duravit offers on the ceramic elements in the range for selected countries.

Bathroom Furniture

The corresponding furniture is as extraordinary as the entire range. The miter-cut, extremely finely crafted edges are testament to the precise composition of the White Tulip furniture, which comes in widths of between 350 and 1300 mm.

Matching Mirrors

Matching mirrors from the White Tulip series are available in versions controlled by sensors or an app. Creating a special visual effect, the mirrored glass has been brought forward which makes the mirror’s surface appear almost transparent around the illuminated area.

Freestanding Bathtub

The free-standing bathtub with its seamless acrylic paneling mirrors the form of the ceramics. The oval version is available in two sizes: 1800×800 mm, with 1600×900 mm for smaller rooms. The round bathtub with a diameter of 140 cm, offers a spacious interior.

White Tulip Phillippe Starck for Duravit

Taps

White Tulip also includes the first range of taps developed by Philippe Starck for Duravit. The consistent design element is the tulip-shaped handle that echoes the shape of the washbasins and bathtubs and is particularly easy and pleasant to operate thanks to the polished surface, whilst the 160 finely engraved vertical stripes produce a truly sophisticated effect. Washbasin mixers are available in various “comfort” heights S, M, and XL. The range also includes bidet, shower and bath faucets.

The unusual design of the White Tulip series will add a stylish touch to any setting. Well-engineered technologies such as HygieneFlush and HygieneGlaze, tip-on technology and self-close action as well as mirror heating and app-controlled, customizable lighting complete the feel-good factor.

The Kartell by Laufen collection has been expanded with original products, in new colours and finishes. A timeless concept with a wide range of pieces that can be combined to create new compositions every time.

Kartell Collection Laufen

The bathroom, like all spaces in the home, is constantly evolving, changing to adapt to the latest lifestyle trends. From research and study on today’s ways of living, the Kartell by Laufen collection has boosted the impact of the colours and finishes of the ceramic fixtures and accessories, inserting new fresh, neutral tones that can be freely combined to generate different settings.

Kartell by Laufen is an extremely complete, variegated collection for the bathroom: it is composed not only of sanitaryware, washstands, brassware, shower trays and bathtubs – the indispensable constants – but also furnishings and décor complements, which can continuously change. Such a wide range of different items gives rise to a collection that combines the Italian design tradition and high quality of materials typical of Kartell.

The Kartell by Laufen collection has been enhanced with new chromatic versions for the sanitaryware and the accessories, while moving forward with the research on taps and mixers. The matte and soft touch finishes effectively mingle with the rest of the collection, bringing a contemporary image that easily fits in any type of décor solution. The white and gray tones previously favored are joined by black and anthracite gray for the washstands in different forms and sizes, produced in the finest ceramic which makes it possible to achieve squared lines and very slim borders, reducing environmental impact to a minimum.

Kartell Collection Laufen

Ochre, mustard yellow and blue-gray are the new hues for 2021, selected to facilitate different compositions of cabinets and drawer units that combine compact, linear design with ample size to offer maximum functional quality in any type of bathroom.

The transparent design accessories establish a perfect dialogue with the ceramic fixtures and the cabinets, adding a touch of lightness in the bathroom thanks to the transparency of the various modular elements. From the Sound-Rack storage systems, which offer great compositional freedom and an ample selection of colours and finishes, to the extensive selection of accessories and complements: Kartell by Laufen is an eclectic, contemporary collection that permits personalisation of the bathroom to suit the mood of the moment.

The toilet (rimless) and the bidet stand out for their linear form, like an overturned truncated cone, with the possibility of attachment to the wall or the floor.

The brassware also plays an important role in the collection: the various possibilities of installation and the great quality of the finishes allow for countless combinations with the ceramic fixtures. The minimal form of the mixers and cylindrical columns are softened by the elegant lines of the curved spigot, the perfect completion of a large washbasin or tub.

The sky’s the limit!

There are no limitations to the compositional freedom offered by the Kartell by Laufen collection: the bathroom becomes a fluid space, capable of adapting to the new needs of living that call for rapid, flexible solutions, in which functional quality rhymes with design and innovation. Sanitaryware, cabinets, complements and accessories, featuring pure geometric forms, to create combinations that are perfect for any space, of any size.

The past year has forced us to become more closely acquainted with our homes, offering a chance to focus on what provides respite from modern-day stress. While the bathroom is a place to relax, it still needs to function and meet the demands of day-to-day use. This is where cleverly designed bathroom furniture plays its part, allowing us to create restful spaces without sacrificing functionality.

Hygiene

There has been a decisive shift in attention paid to cleanliness; while hygiene has always played a substantial role in bathroom design, consumers are now hyper-focused on it. This has translated into innovation, with designers exploring ways to cater to the growing appetite to keep homes even cleaner.

Ashley Chilver, Sales Director at HiB, agrees: “As a reaction to the global pandemic, there is currently a focus on touch-free operation to aid hygiene in the bathroom. As we look to the future, this is a feature that is likely to rise in popularity and progress as more technologies are developed.”

However, that doesn’t mean that style will be sacrificed for function. The sleek, tactile design of HiB’s Fabrica range makes it easy to keep clean without forfeiting on looks, as well as providing the opportunity for personalisation thanks to the brassware, size options and optional legs available.

Expressive Design

The longer consumers spend at home, the more they consider how they want their most private spaces to look. Richard Shore, Head of Design at Utopia, agrees: “The pandemic has actually emboldened trends to be more indulgent and expressive. Prompted by a sense of rebellion, colours, texture, prints and materials are more vibrant, deep, exotic, and extravagant.”

Utopia’s new-look Qube collection has undergone a refresh with several new wood finishes – including pale Scandi Nordic Oak; deep, metallic-flecked Anthracite Strata; and warm honeyed Sorrento Walnut – highlighting how furniture can bring a modern aesthetic and provide the perfect backdrop for bold accessories or showstopping ceramics.

Wood finishes are proving popular thanks to consumers’ desire to connect with nature following several lockdowns. Mark Jones, Sales Director at Saneux, says: “Having been somewhat out of fashion for a while, we have seen a definite resurgence of wood finishes, particularly the warm, honeyed tones.”

Saneux has launched a new rustic English Oak finish for its UNI range of furniture featuring a realistic wood grain effect that lends itself perfectly to the ‘back-to-nature’ trend. Handleless drawer units with soft-closing runners suit a soothing environment with clean lines and minimal fuss.

This level of detail is starting to resonate in the consciousness of the consumer, thanks to the amount of time spent at home. It is not just about the functionality of bathroom furniture — it’s about the sensation it evokes; the shapes and colours.

VitrA’s Voyage bathroom collection offers a huge range of customisation options, with a variety of horizontal and vertical units. Its colour palette – including flamed grey and forest green – lends well to creating a haven of calm, bringing the outdoors inside.

Artist Arik Levy, who worked on the collection, says: “We’ve been in a situation where most people have spent months at home. With all that time spent in just one environment, perhaps we will see how little details and elements in our living spaces can change our mood and influence our feelings and perceptions.”

Utopia’s new-look Qube collection has undergone a strategic refresh and now includes several new wood finishes to offer greater choice and flexibility.

Extending its versatility, new units, basin options and complementary accessories have been added to this striking range of wall-mounted and freestanding bathroom furniture.  Three new on-trend finishes have been introduced, along with a new handle trim finish and a choice of coordinating brassware.

Bringing the number of finishes to seven in total, the new options include a pale Scandic Nordic Oak, a deep textured metallic-flecked Anthracite Strata, and Sorrento Walnut, a warm, honeyed shade with an attractive grain. As usual with Utopia, samples of all finishes are available free of charge.

The introduction of a new Matt Black handle trim and Matt Black taps alongside the existing chrome options also increases the design opportunities whilst delivering a striking contemporary feel.

Qube sanitaryware also now includes a modular slimline ceramic slabtop basin together with new square or circular sit-on basins, and an elegant new toilet.  New decorative open shelf base and wall units plus ‘finishing touch’ accessories, such as bath plinths and internal lights, complete the new look range.

In a first for Utopia, there is also a Fast Track delivery option available. This new option, which offers three to five-day delivery on a dedicated selection of Qube furniture, is a new initiative from Utopia and is designed specifically to help customers meet challenging deadlines or unavoidable changes to schedules.

As Helen Clark, Head of Marketing at Utopia Bathrooms, comments “The newly refreshed Qube, supported by the new Fast Track delivery service, is now even more flexible and versatile, offering the consumer an array of design possibilities and personalisation opportunities.”
