Jill Litner Kaplan’s Showroom Favorites — January 2021
A Note From Jason
Happy New Year!
We did it — we officially made it through 2020. Despite all of the challenges we endured and the ever-changing retail environment, we’ve worked hard to come out on the other side stronger and more resilient than ever. Looking forward, I feel hopeful for the future and I am cautiously optimistic about what this next chapter has in store for us.
Here at Designer Bath, we’re saying out with the old and in with the new as we kick off the year with an exciting renovation of our Beverly showroom. We always strive to display current trends as well as traditional favorites. The pandemic seemed to inspire many people to analyze their living spaces and ask if it was serving them effectively and creating joy. We went through a similar process and came up with some ways to freshen our space, and make it more resourceful for clients. Stay tuned for some behind-the-scenes footage of our transformation. Be sure to follow our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date.
I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t comment on the events that transpired at the Capitol Building last week. What comes up for me is the importance of leadership and the role we as leaders play to foster kindness and make a difference. I think about it every day. How can I make a difference for those with whom I come in contact? How can I make a difference for those in my community? How can I spread warmth and love? This is my personal mission. From my perspective, leadership is a privilege, a gift and an honor.
DORNBRACHT IMO LAVATORY MIXER IN PLATINUM MATTE
MADELI ESTATE SAPPHIRE FREE STANDING CABINET
A faucet is the first decision you make when designing a master bathroom. In this case, I selected the Dornbracht IMO in a platinum matte finish. A truly classic piece, it boasts both linear and curved elements. The quality of the faucet is what sets the tone for this space with its timeless elegance and bold presence.
The cabinet conveys both strong and delicate messages. The versatile sapphire color can appeal to both men and women in a master bathroom. It would look most spectacular with a marble mosaic floor. The chrome legs then would reveal the beautiful flooring.
DORNBRACHT CONCEALED THERMOSTAT WITH THREE-WAY VOLUME CONTROL IN POLISHED CHROME
The Dornbracht Concealed Thermostat proves that plumbing can be considered jewelry for your shower. It’s an ingenious way to organize the valves onto one backplate — a seamless integration that is very appealing to the eye.
JACLO 16″ X 16″ SQUARE RAIN MACHINE IN POLISHED CHROME
The Jaclo 16” x 16” Rain Machine is a wonderful statement from both a design and functionality perspective. It’s able to provide a magnificent shower experience. The straight, linear shape provides a balance to the large scale of the piece to create a subtle yet impactful focal point for your shower.
BAINULTRA VIBE FREESTANDING SOAKER TUB IN WHITE
I am a huge fan of BainUltra. To me, they stand for high quality and superb design detail. This design is so sleek with its straight edge and gentle curved detail on each of the four sides. It’s simply a masterpiece and adds an element of luxury and relaxation for your bathroom.
DORNBRACHT CL.1 SINGLE-LEVER TUB MIXER IN PLATINUM MATTE
I absolutely love this Dornbracht tub mixer because of its sculptural presence when placed next to a freestanding bathtub. The combination of a statuesque bathtub paired with a piece of gleaming hardware creates a dramatic perspective.
