I know that based on these recent chilly temps, it seems hard to believe, but…warm(ish) days are in the not-so-distant future. Hey, the calendar says, ‘First day of Spring – March 20th’ and who are we to argue with that?
I’ve been invited to participate in a Global Leadership Training in Cape Town, South Africa and can’t wait to bring back lots of great ideas to improve our business and customer experience. I feel so fortunate and grateful for this opportunity. Stay tuned!
Daylight Saving Time begins on the 10th day of this month and that’s always a reason to celebrate, as is St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th – when everyone around Boston seems to be Irish (wink, wink).
In the spirit of feeling lucky, we have the good fortune of being joined by our dear friend and immensely talented designer, Anna Orfanides, on our March blog. Anna, Owner and Principal Designer at Anna O Design, infuses all of her projects with a global perspective and influence. Inspired by the stunning architecture and design in which she was immersed while living in Greece and studying abroad in other parts of Europe, Anna mixes her passion for the creative spirit with her background of international travel, drawing on both as she cultivates timeless, tailored and functional spaces for her clients. Keep scrolling to see Anna’s favorite ‘sleek and chic’ bath pieces from our showroom.
Wishing you a wonderful month!
CROSSWATER PATINATO TUB
I’ve always loved Crosswater as a product and a brand. I had the privilege of meeting the company’s owner, David Hance, at a dinner hosted by Designer Bath. Hearing his story was so inspiring to me, and I appreciate his vision and his collections. I’ve been wanting to use their items on a project for awhile now and when I was in the showroom, I knew I wanted to select a couple of Crosswater items for my blog feature. The clean lines of this tub offer a modern silhouette, perfect for a sleek and cutting-edge bath space.
CROSSWATER UNION FREESTANDING TUB FILLER
This piece has a bit of an edge to it and contains such character. It’s urban-inspired and feels really fresh with the chunky piping. The knurling details give this fixture an industrial appearance.
FRANZ VIEGENER SHORELINE WIDESPREAD LAVATORY FAUCET
This is unlike anything I’ve seen before with its exaggerated low profile. I fell in love with it, especially in the matte black finish. It was so seamlessly integrated into the vignettes that are on display in the showroom.
FURNITURE GUILD FENIX COUNTERTOP
This is the epitome of sexiness. I recently used it in a client project and I’m so excited for the space to be photographed. Anyone who looks at this piece, even if you’re not into modern design, would be drawn to it. It’s impossible to not be in awe and want to experience the material and composition.
FURNITURE GUILD TOURO VANITY
With this vanity, the beauty is in the simplicity. For me, less is always more, and I gravitate towards the understated. Furniture Guild, one of my favorite brands, conveys the highest level of quality in all of its pieces. The products are well-made and feature exquisite craftsmanship from artists who take pride in what they create for people.
