Thomas Crapper modern WC

There is nothing like putting a modern take on a design classic for creating a timeless look in the bathroom, and the latest introductions from Thomas Crapper allow for just that, with the company’s first-ever close-coupled WC.

Complete with the famous Crapper ‘beer-pull’ lever, the new Viceroy cistern is cast in aluminium and can be supplied in polished aluminium or powder coated in ‘Crapper’ Red, British Racing Green or White for colour-blocking in the bathroom at its finest. Space saving but still with that classic edge, the Viceroy close-coupled pan has a choice of seat options, including a new soft-close solid wood option – another first for Thomas Crapper.

The perfect team-mate for the Viceroy WC is the new Resolute basin, assured to be an icon of any bathroom with the soap recesses created in the shape of the Union flag, for a style that is distinctively British. Designed to complement the existing range of Thomas Crapper basin brackets, washstands and basin furniture units (as shown), the Resolute basin is a versatile solution for any bathroom.

Of course, nothing says ‘classic bathroom’ like a freestanding bath, making the new Hesketh bath, with its modern twist on a design favourite, the perfect fit. Supplied with the all-important Thomas Crapper branding, the Hesketh is made from high quality, solid surface material, making it silky smooth to the touch and one of the most comfortable bathing experiences around.

Prices start from £1250 for the Viceroy Close-coupled WC Pan and Cistern, £640 for the Resolute basin and £1,949for the Hesketh freestanding bath.
