Episode 111 Bowled over-Les lavabos part 2

httpwww.ebay.co.ukitmBathroom-Cloakroom-Glass-Wash-Basin-Sink-With-Chrome-Finished-Stand-301136548865As a COMPLETE contrast to the Chinese basin I posted last, here is my bowl and stand for the en-suite to cave bedroom. My bowl is actually perfectly plain apart from subtle ribbing, whereas the one –left- has a raised design


I have an original Art Deco black bevelled glass splashback with mirror and chrome fittings very like this one to fit behind itblack art deco splashback


The two work together really well considering the ninety-odd year age gap as simple clean lines and crisp styling like this never go of of fashion.

Good design is good design

He likes the basin & stand though….

  1. I went through this last year trying to decide what to do with my bathroom. It took a while is all I can say!!

    Lovely! I’m a fan of the bath in the bedroom too and have struggled to get my husband to understand it let alone a French builder!

    Yeah, modern. My English workers love old stuff. The French guys want space-age new. With those simple shapes and similar color organization, those things will look great together. Even the workers will think so.
