Hi Friends and Colleagues,

I’m thrilled to share the latest trends and products, as well as my own insights, from our showroom and beyond.

As the Showroom Brand Manager for Designer Bath and Salem Plumbing Supply, I am easily drawn to (and fall in love with) an assortment of luxury kitchen and bath products. Being immersed in the designer world gives me access to information about the hottest styles and trends in the industry.

Are you ready to see the latest and greatest? Continue scrolling.

All my best,

Graff Mod Series

This new series from GRAFF has us falling even more in love with the brand — which we didn’t think was possible! The overall design is an absolute show-stopper. The Mod Series is incredibly versatile with limitless options including spout height and shape, configurations, finishes and stone options. This gives the homeowner the opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind look that no one else has because they can essentially customize their faucet. It’s the perfect fusion of transitional meets industrial with a refined unique style.

Crosswater Vanities

The craftsmanship of our new Crosswater vanities is apparent when you feel the quality of the product. The vanity tops are crafted from Italian fireclay creating a beautiful finish with incredible durability. With a variety of several different finishes and sizes, this well-made product presents endless opportunities for transforming your bathroom space.

Industrial Look

Something I’ve previously discussed in my Musings was “specialty finishes.” As we continue to see a rise in popularity in this sector, let’s take a deeper dive into the “industrial” trend. We are seeing more and more manufacturers offering style variations on this theme. They are using knurling and the look of pipe fittings to convey this industrial vibe of minimalistic unfinished elegance.

Mixed Metals

Until recently, bathroom and kitchen design was often homogeneous, even uniform, when it came to product finishes. Lighting, cabinet hardware, and faucets would all match. This is a completely different story today. We are seeing clients mixing finishes and it looks fantastic! Even manufacturers are now offering two-toned products. Who would have imagined a lack of uniformity would be such a homerun? I love the warmth and authenticity of this trend.
