Happy April! Though New England weather has yet to get the memo, the calendar says that spring has indeed arrived – finally.
New seasons are often marked by personal and professional growth, and all of us at Designer Bath are continuing the preparations for our upcoming venture – the opening of our brand new Watertown showroom, coming in May. We’ve hired some enthusiastic and experienced staff members for Watertown and can’t wait to introduce you to these new faces. More on that in the near future…
A change in season also brings new styles and trends, especially in the world of kitchen and bath design. We’re honored to say that we’re the exclusive plumbing provider in the Boston market of The Galley brand and the Galley Kitchen Workstation line. My sister Mindy, our Showroom Brand Manager, shared her thoughts on this dynamic kitchen countertop accessory system with Boston Common Magazine. In addition, our debut of The Galley was included in a recent New England Home feature, and a great piece about our showroom’s curated product selection was published on Boston Design Guide‘s blog.
For this month’s ‘Showroom Favorites’ blog spotlight, we are thrilled to feature Vani Sayeed of Vani Sayeed Studios. Vani and our team go way back, and we’ve been fortunate enough to work with this talented designer on various client projects, including the kitchen in the 2016 Junior League of Boston Show House.
Vani, a Newton-based interior designer and artist, grew up in India and received her BFA in Interior Design at the prestigious Sir J. J. School of Art in Mumbai. She moved to the United States in 1998 and obtained her MFA in Design from the University of Iowa. Her global immersion and cross-cultural experiences are evident in the composition of the beautiful, dynamic spaces she creates. See below for Vani’s five spring-ready product picks for your kitchen and bath.
Here’s to warmer weather (hopefully one of these days) and a wonderful April for you. Stay in touch!

This classic fixture with the exposed Edison bulb always creates a statement, hung alone or in a cluster.

The versatile aesthetic and gorgeous polished nickel finish of this faucet are a win in any kitchen. When paired with the lighting fixture above, together they make a stunning marriage.

Pretty, practical, and perfectly scaled; this mirror is like the sun, especially with the glow around it!

Happy belated New Year to everyone! It’s hard to believe that it’s already February. By now, 2017 is in full swing and we’ve been busy here at Designer Bath & Salem Plumbing Supply. A quick recap of the past several months – we hosted our 5th Annual ‘What’s On Tap’ showroom sampler event, won the title of ‘Best Kitchen and Bath Fixtures’ by Northshore Home and Boston Home and flaunted our New England Patriots pride by providing the fixtures and accessories for Intel’s Super Bowl ad featuring Tom Brady.
This year promises to be non-stop and exciting for us as we’re gearing up for the grand opening of a second showroom that will be almost twice as large as our Beverly one. Coming to you this summer — a Designer Bath location in Watertown, MA, filled to the brim with stylish, state-of-the-art products for every home. Stay tuned for more details.
We’re also launching a new monthly series featuring the best-of-the-best products from our showroom, as chosen by some of our interior designer friends around Greater Boston. I figured I’d kick this one off myself, so see below for my top picks for your kitchen and bath.
I hope your 2017 is off to a happy and healthy start! Stay in touch.
FRANZ VIEGENER INDUSTRIAL CHIC SERIES
With its factory-inspired structure, this faucet is a nice blend of function and style. The bright red knobs give a bold pop of color against typical bathroom neutrals and offer versatility. We recently incorporated this piece into a child’s bathroom for one of our clients.
CROSSWATER WALDORF TUB
The architecture of this tub is simultaneously dramatic and unique without being over-the-top or too funky. It’s an eye-catching centerpiece in any bathroom.
FURNITURE GUILD WINSTON VANITY
Crafted using a blend of Burnished Brass and English Walnut, this vanity features a fully-integrated countertop, and looks great in a bathroom with warm wood cabinetry and gold accents.
THE GALLEY IDEAL WORKSTATION
For those who love to cook and entertain, this multi-functional countertop workstation is a must-have. As the exclusive New England provider of this brand, we are thrilled to welcome The Galley to our showroom selection.
DORNBRACHT RAIN SHOWER
Rain shower heads are definitely the “it” fixture for transitional and contemporary bathrooms right now. Designed to mimic the feel and experience of raindrops falling, these pieces include multiple settings and can spread water over a large surface area.
