Looking forward to Cersaie 2012

We are visiting Cersaie 2012 and looking forward to seeing the new trends and colours.  Most of our Italian suppliers show here so we will be having several busy days!

Bisazza have previewed "Variations" - you can see the tiles in different sizes and shades which combine to create patterns and blends similar to twined fabric - this one looks almost as it if could be Scottish tweed.

Variations by Bisazza at Cersaie 2012

Valeria, blend in Bisazza glass mosaic combining 20x20mm and 10x10mm tiles.

We are not the only ones to think this range from Gessi is well worth considering for your bathroom.  Here are a couple of projects that have used Rettangolo.

Randolph Duke's home Openhouse features Gessi Rettangolo in the bathrooms - who wouldn't want a bathroom like this?  Sadly we can't promise the views ... but as an Official Gessi dealer we do have Rettangolo on display in the Soak in Style showroom.

Here are some bathroom images from 145 Park Lane and Cowarth Park.

Soak in Style

Sometimes a long soak in a bath is just the thing.  And surely you didn't think we'd resist the oh so apt header do you?!  

So which bath is the one for you?
Teuco Freestanding Paper bath
The Teuco Paper bathtub is available in a wide number of sizes and in a large number of configurations: flush-fit, undermount, built-in recessed, and with between 1 and 4 panels. You can select panels in Whte or pick from one of the Pantone shades or the wood finishes of Anthracite Oak, Limed Oak and Wenge.  On display in the Soak in Style showroom is the exclusive Hydroline whirlpool, the first system to feature stylish slits instead of nozzles.  The innovative design of this bathtub has been included in the prestigious ADI DESIGN INDEX 2011, and was designed by Giovanna Talocci, an industrial and interior designer.
Axor Urquiola bath
A bathroom for the senses - designed by Patricia Urquiola and part of the Axor Hansgrohe range.  Axor Urquiola is a collection that inspires you to live your bathroom dream giving a style fusion and sense of harmony.  The feminine shaped Axor Urquiola bath, basin and mixers can be seen in the Soak in Style showroom.

Duravit Onto bath
Designed by Matteo Thun this bathroom range from Duravit that is simple in it's austerity; the ascetic appeal and broad product range – from tall cabinets to mirrors – mean that Onto is also the perfect range for the modern, design-oriented bathroom.  The freestanding bath combines minimal space with a comfortable all-enveloping bath and is available in 3 different options - from super-shallow to ultra compact.  Select from built in or with panelling, standard or striking conical shape (as seen above).  Timeless design combined with beauty of economy.
