While the use of dark grey might be considered a black cop-out to some, to others it might be as daring as they can muster up the courage to be. Design steps like this elicit applause. Warm woods work equally well against charcoal grey and ebony.
Freestanding tubs have become very popular in the past few years and the trend shows no signs of slowing down based on the offerings shown at IDS2017. Designers are presenting new finishes and shapes, as well as down-sized versions of luxurious tubs for smaller bathrooms. Native Trails showed this spectacular Santorini soaking tub, which is forged from high-quality recycled copper. Master coppersmiths spend weeks crafting the textured finish with thousands of hammer strikes.
Last year DVX debuted their amazing 3D printed faucets, but this year, the year the company showed its newest product, which is a sleek bathroom sink design with a stylish drain cover and a moveable tray. Vanico also presented a new vanity with their organically shaped basin. The vanity top is made from reclaimed submerged wood, which has a rustic and texture surface. The wood comes from logs submerged in Quebec lakes and rivers since the beginning of the last century.
