The new Armstrong bathroom collection from British manufacturer Perrin & Rowe combines an industrial aesthetic with a designer’s eye for balance and proportion…
The Armstrong bathroom collection offers a luxurious take on a pared-back design trend and is one of the most comprehensive ranges Perrin & Rowe, part of the House of Rohl portfolio, has ever launched. Every piece can be specified in chrome, nickel or pewter along with 24-carat gold, polished brass or satin brass for a golden glow. Perrin & Rowe’s two brass finishes are unlacquered, so will develop a unique patina over time, enhancing the beauty of the alloy. For a true industrial look, English Bronze offers a darker metallic finish that brings out the detail of the knurling.
Each tap is made with the highest quality brass, poured by hand at 1700° fahrenheit into moulds. After machining, specialist polishers develop the deep, lustrous finish. It’s a time-consuming and painstaking task. The freestanding bath-shower mixer, for example, can take over four hours to perfect. Choose a single lever basin mixer or a three-hole tap, either wall-mounted or deck-mounted. An iconic freestanding bath-shower mixer is available, as is a complete Shower Set with hand-shower and overhead rose. Accessories include robe hooks, a paper holder, a towel bar or towel ring, and a matching built-in soap dispenser.[TAG2] [TAG3]
There are 15 new pieces to choose from available in a choice of six finishes, from hand-polished Chrome (electroplated to a thickness beyond industry standards) through to 24-carat plated Gold. The launch follows the recent success of Perrin & Rowe’s award-winning Armstrong kitchen collection, which has rapidly become one of Perrin & Rowe’s most popular ranges. Now, homeowners and designers can choose industrial styled brassware across both the kitchen and bathroom.
