Juan Guillermo Uribe Rubio’s Showroom Favorites – June 2018
A Note From Jason
We’ve entered the time of year that brings one of my favorite ‘S’ words (other than ‘summer’). ‘Tis the season to have a ‘S-A-L-E.’ I’m of course talking about our annual showroom sale that begins in a couple of weeks.
From June 16th to June 30th, at our Beverly and Watertown locations, we are offering major discounts (up to 75% off!) on fixtures and accessories for the bath and kitchen.
And what’s a potential shopping spree without a big party? We’re pitching a tent and you’re invited. Join us for an official kick-off of our tent sale event, located at our Beverly showroom at 97 River Street. On Saturday, June 16th, we’re hosting a day full of festivities for you and the family:
- 8am: Showroom doors open!
- 10am-11am: Meet Billy Costa from the Matty Show on KISS 108
- 10am-12pm: KISS street team entertains with music, a cash machine, cornhole games and prize giveaways
- 10am-2pm: Complimentary kids face painting and balloon art
I hope to see you there, browsing some can’t-miss deals.
On the topic of showroom ‘must-haves,’ I’m thrilled to introduce our June guest blogger, Juan Guillermo Uribe Rubio, a principal at Pauli & Uribe Architects, LLC. Juan and his partner, Monika Zofia Pauli, combine their knowledge of classical forms and modern design to create integrated, high-end designs for their clients. In his spare time (we weren’t aware that busy architects had any!), Juan is an avid fly fisherman, former equestrian and ardent lover of Formula One open wheel racing. Follow along below as he shares his Bath and Kitchen favorites.
Wishing you a bright and sunny June!
CROSSWATER ARCADE BICYCLE
This whimsical piece would be a fun addition to a restaurant or office space. It will put a smile on anyone who uses it! The basket can be dressed up with handsome colourful flowers. This is certainly a piece that may draw people and create much needed conversation in this time and age.
PERRIN AND ROWE VICTORIAN TOILET
Love the soft closing high gloss seat and cover. It has a charming, classic and timeless look that makes any of our projects historically correct and appropriate. The tank has a stylized panel on it which enhances a traditional bathroom. No need to hide this one!
STONE FOREST RENAISSANCE CONSOLE
A handsome and elegant fixture frequently used in our high end residential projects – light, sculptural and elegant. The carved stone edges contain water from dripping, add a functional touch and make it a fashionable fixture. The veins of the marble are alive, adding another classic and timeless layer to a room. A practical geometry that does not obscure the elegance of the architecture – whether in your Master Bath Room with beautiful monogrammed hand towels draping from the middle bar, or in your Powder Room, with monogrammed paper towels on the counter in a handsome tray.
NATIVE TRAILS CANTINA BAR SINK
A handsome classic finish in hammered polished nickel enhances the geometry of this sink. P&U uses a fair number of these sinks in our Bar and Kitchen projects. A piece like this makes a statement and adds texture and movement to one of the simplest objects. An added bonus – it’s easy to maintain and clean!
DORNBRACHT TARA SINGLE HOLE MIXER
The simple, traditional streamlined cross handles are amongst my favourite classic and timeless design details. These give it a traditional English look, reminiscent of the old manors in the lush English countryside…. The proportions are flawless and offer a handsome scale. The colour and finish are romantic; it’s evocative of Cartier’s ‘Trinity’ ring. I am very much inspired to incorporate this finish in an upcoming project.
