This showroom is a place to display KOHLER products and a destination for developers, architects and consumers to come together and get inspired.”
The new showroom features myriad KOHLER products, including:
The collection features a modern design with simple, clean lines and seamless curves, that provide a superior blend of comfort and convenience. Every aspect from the rimless bowl to the easy-to-clean FDI coating has been crafted to deliver the ultimate hygiene without compromising on style and aesthetics.
The Veil Collection
Ergonomically suited to one’s body, the sculpted curves of the Veil Freestanding Bath provide a deeper, more relaxing soak.
Artist Editions Vessels
The Sartorial collection pays homage to the refined elegance of 19th-century European textiles. Inspired by an exuberant French block print from 1850, this intricate paisley pattern has an organic quality, showcased beautifully on the Carillon vessel sink. Pair it with the Sartorial Herringbone sink [two sinks?] for a coordinated master bath vanity.
The Shagreen collection celebrates the subtle coloring and distinctive pebbled texture of natural shark and ray leather. Inspired by oil spot glazes that originated in China during the Song Dynasty, a two-step glaze process uses minerals to create an interplay of shimmery and matte effects. A striking complement to the oval Caxton sink, the rich glazed finish shows iridescent pearly tones and a gently granulated texture similar to leather. Each sink’s pattern, formed through an organic process, is unique.
Inspired by studio pottery, the Derring collection celebrates the inherent beauty and authenticity of handcrafted ceramics. Each sink is a one-of-a-kind creation, finished with unique artisanal glazes that produce fascinating surface effects. A hand-carved texture accentuates the subtle tonal variations of the glazes. Featured in neutral hues, this sink can be the centerpiece of your bath, or it can serve as a unifying element that pulls everything else together. This vessel sink offers a recessed, low-profile installation that sits just above your counter.
The new showroom is open from 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday and 9 am to 3:30 pm on Saturday. For more information, please visit www.africa.kohler.com
