Several weeks ago I published a post on a bath that had good bones but lacked a sense of style or a reflection of its’ owners personal taste. The bath pictured in today’s post was published in THE GREAT AMERICAN HOUSE by Gil Schafer and tells quite a different story. Unlike my comments previously, this bath not only has great bones and detail, but it also reflects a very sophisticated and stylish resident. Clearly, this bath is in a traditional house or apartment where the use of bead board is an appropriate material. The tall base molding with a distinct profile and a crisp chair rail confine the lower portion of the room and define the space. It is obvious that the tall window has well articulated moldings and the door has simple yet refined hardware.

The preparation for launch of the R.W. Atlas fittings and District Tile has been a major team effort here at Waterworks. We are so pleased to introduce our friends and clients to our newest initiative that includes fittings for the bath and kitchen, accessories, a washstand and District Tile. For more than two years we collaborated with the design firm of Roman and Williams to create products that were inspired by precision-crafted goods from the past including microscopes, the Leica camera or the bezel of a Rolex sub-mariner watch. The results are designs that are not specific to any one historical period, but enjoy a familiarity with many objects from our past. This is a strictly American and original design sensibility, inspired by historic details but expressed in a modern way.
