Rockwell Collection

With a mouth-watering range of colours and bold curves, the Rockwell is in a league of its own.
  
The Rockwell is an all-inclusive range extending to matching bath, toilet and basin designs.  In addition to the classic Snowdrop White, unique colour options are available for all pieces in Sherbet Yellow, Willow Green and Powder Blue.

Soho Collection

Soho is an embodiment of the glamour and sleekness prevalent in early 20th century design. 

Named after Soho, New York, this range allows for the same creativity and eclecticism that the once industrial ‘cast-iron’ neighbourhood now offers today. 
 
Displaying strong form with understated dignity, the Soho bath, basins and wall-hung toilet and bidet are perfect for an individual, modern interior.

Paris Collection

Take your bathroom to Paris with a truly romantic collection of baths and basins.
 
The Paris Collection captures the elegance and classic lines of the Belle Epoque, when design and architecture celebrated Art Nouveau, taking inspiration from the soft curves present in nature.

Lonsdale Collection

The distinctive streamlined form of the Lonsdale collection offers a sophisticated, timeless appeal.  

This range appeals on so many levels; the Lonsdale basin has a spacious top surface and comes in three sizes to allow for consistent design throughout the project.  

Joseph Giles Leather

We are proud to announce the release of beautiful handcrafted leather hardware collections by UK based company Joseph Giles.

The finest quality, sustainably and ethically sourced bridle leather is applied by highly skilled and experienced craftsmen to create unique and timeless designs. The gorgeous handles are hand stitched and leather wrapped for an authentic and personalised finish. 

Joseph Giles has been influenced by its strong British heritage and this is certainly evident in the leather collections. With rich, masculine tones, this hardware will add a layer of warmth and luxury to both contemporary and traditional interiors.

Oxford Grilles

Direct from the heart of the UK, Oxford Decorative Grilles are hand woven by a family who has spent generations mastering their art.

Combining old-school crimping and trimming machinery, quality brass and the concentration & dexterity of each weaver, there is no comparison.
