Tag Archives: washstands

It is spring, at last. The season always inspires me to check my medicine cabinet and towel storage for all the detritus that has accumulated since my last overhaul.

New York City designer Philip Gorrivan was kind enough to share this photo with me.  It is a bath he designed for a NYC client who wanted a classic and timeless space that was practical as well as beautiful. He chose to install two single washstands with marble slabs fabricated with traditional ogee edges. The functionality becomes apparent with the installation of a small piece of furniture with a bank of drawers providing extra space to store bath sundries out of sight. I love all of the black accents from the border on the towels to the black crown molding. The scale is right and the materials beautifully layered.
