A Note From Jason
‘Tis the season for… shopping! We hope you were able to make it to one of our showrooms to take advantage of our great deals during our Black Friday Sale. Kitchen and bath products are truly gifts that keep on giving all year long.

Make your way to one of our showrooms for a treat that will enhance their daily life – such as a toasty towel warmer or invigorating shower head with the newest flow technology. Any of our showroom associates would be more than happy to help you pick the perfect present for anyone on your list.
Last month our showroom was full of events. We had a fantastic night of networking and mindfulness with Peter Feinmann and EM NARI. Peter discussed mindfulness and how it relates to our busy, sometimes chaotic, industry. I’m already feeling more zen! We also had a blast having design professional Kristen Rivoli in our showroom to chat about our favorite product lines while sipping champagne. Head to her Instagram to see some photos from her visit.
Without further ado, I am thrilled to announce this month’s guest blogger, Michael Ferzoco. Michael, the talented Principal at Eleven Interiors, leads an award-winning and visionary design team as they delve into a constant array of projects. Their portfolio ranges from new construction and renovations to custom furnishings and bespoke interiors throughout Boston, New York, and Los Angeles.

Wishing you and your loved ones the happiest of holidays!
Upon visiting Designer Bath’s breathtaking Watertown showroom, I was immediately drawn to pieces that evoked an Art Deco-style bathroom mixed with an industrial edge. I appreciate how the brass finishes in the below fixtures worked together without being overwhelming.
STONE FOREST CALMA TUB
I was immediately mesmerized by this piece and drawn to the fact that it’s crafted from a single piece of marble. While gorgeous, sensual and luxurious, this tub is also quite uncomplicated. There’s very little detail – the simplicity of the shape is a juxtaposition to the sophistication of this amazing slab of stone that’s been smoothed and meticulously carved. Another notable feature is that it’s not too masculine, even with a strong material and dark color. It wouldn’t feel misplaced in a bathroom containing décor that lends itself to femininity. A perfect home sanctuary from Stone Forest!
STONE FOREST RENAISSANCE CONSOLE
With this console, the scale of the brass work and the stand itself work beautifully with the weight of the Stone Forest tub I mentioned above. Even with a heavy, hand-carved tub, this sink doesn’t look too slight in comparison. To strike a balance between the two pieces and to allow the console to breath a bit, I would omit having a cabinet in the same space. From an architectural perspective, I can imagine a luxe bathroom with two of these consoles, side-by-side, or one on the left and one on the right, with the statement tub taking center stage amidst a wall of mirrors and gorgeous tile.
EMTEK BRISTOL KNOB WITH ROSETTE
Not only is this knob streamlined in its design, it’s incredibly ergonomic. I prefer sphere-shaped knobs as opposed to round and flat, because when you use them, your hand fits right over them in an easy, comfortable manner. The backplate of this particular knob could be round or square as the structure of this piece is fluid. I love how this glass knob provides weight without being overly dominant in this space I’ve concepted. Again, all of the pieces need to work in scale with the statement tub. It’s important for the accessories and accents to ‘float’, providing levity in the room.
BRIZO LITZE FREESTANDING TUB FILLER
Brizo has the most beautiful finishes. What I really liked about this tub filler is its pared-down ease and homage to an era of machine-inspired pieces. The Art Deco period, a deviation from the previous elaborate Art Nouveau period, was all about elegance and minimalism. Brizo’s Litze collection is reminiscent of an industrial-influenced time.
BRIZO LITZE WIDESPREAD LAVATORY FAUCET
My favorite thing about this Brizo beauty lies in the simplicity. Apart from the one detail of very compelling ribbing and knurling on the stem, this faucet contains no extra adornment. It offers great functionality and versatility coupled with an attractive composition.
