17th Century Dutch Masters basins for the bathroom…

Art has entered the bathroom in the most lush, dramatic way! Kohler has released its latest collection of Artist Editions basins – two models inspired by the Dutch Masters of the 17th century and aptly called the Dutchmaster Collection.

Dutchmasters Rectangular Blush Floral

Big, bold, lush florals, dramatically enhanced by a deeply dark, moody background, adorn the entire surface of the basin’s interior. Fittingly named Blush Floral, the basin is available in either a round or rectangular vessel basin.

Blush Floral is a vivid mass of large scale peonies, dahlias, ranunculus and hydrangeas in lush colours of blush pink, ivory and darkest rose on an onyx background. And for delicate relief? A beautiful, Painted Lady butterfly poised on a single stem.

Dutchmasters Basins by Kohler

Kohler’s Dutchmaster collection was created in collaboration with “florography” artist Ashley Woodson Bailey who is renowned for her hauntingly beautiful floral photography.

The vessel basins have been designed to sit proud of the vanity and feature a subtle, defining lift at the edge of the bowl. They can be paired with wall mount or bench mount mixer taps – and due to their rich colouring will suit many of Kohler’s metal finishes, from polished and rose gold to vibrant brushed bronze, titanium and brushed nickel.

These beautiful, full bloom works of art are featured on two styles of basin – the Carillon rectangular Wading Pool and the Carillon Round Wading Pool.

Back in black … Kohler launches Mica basins in black

Black is having a major moment in bathrooms and the new, super slim, statement-making basin from Kohler is no exception.

The beautifully elegant Mica honed black countertop vessel is an immediate heart-stopper. In both a square and round format these basins bring a very refined sense of style to any bathroom – but that is only part of the story!

Kohler has developed a super-ceramic whereby the walls of the basin are incredibly slim – just 6mm – giving the appearance of extreme delicacy and elegance. Yet the Mica basins are outstandingly durable and even harder than traditional vitreous china!

Each of the basins features Kohler’s CleanCoat™ finish that creates an invisible stain-resistant surface that ensures the basin retains its original glossy, pristine good looks after many years of use.

The Mica honed black countertop basins come in two designs – 393mm square and a 410mm diameter round version. There are also gloss white versions of the Mica available.

Scandinavian bathroom design featuring Kohler…

Inspired by the organic minimalism of Scandinavian design, this bathroom design featuring Kohler products showcases a modern aesthetic with an eye toward the natural world. Bathroom fixtures featured include the Kallos Spun Glass Basin – a beautifully crafted, multi-faceted under bench basin design and the Stillness hob mounted basin set. The unique texture of the Nature’s Chemistry Kallos spun glass basins is the perfect complement to the sleek, hard marble surface, while the Stillness’ high-arch spout and ergonomic lever handles adds to the understated design, creating a calm, minimalist style for modern bathrooms and spa environments.

With a slim profile and tubular design, this tapware design mirrors the round shape of the basin, while the reflective facets of cut glass make this undercounter basin shine like a jewel.

The bathroom design is carried into the master bedroom’s adjacent sitting area, bringing a cohesiveness to the entire master suite. The Kallos basin’s faceted glass reflects the room’s moody depth.

View through to the bathroom from the living space continues the ‘Nordic Light’ scandi theme.

Simply designed organic accent pieces reinforce the room’s Scandinavian style such as the uniquely hung pendant lights which provide an interesting contrast to a sleek, simple mirror.

Low-profile countertop basins are currently at the top of the wish list for bathroom renovators with Kohler reporting a strong preference for simple, pared back models teamed with bench or wall mount mixer taps.

Perfectly paired – the Forefront Square basin with the Stance Tall basin mixer

Two models epitomise the look – the Forefront Square countertop basin and the Forefront Rectangular design.

The former is ideal for more compact spaces or where there are twin basins installed side by side. Measuring 413mm with a height of 83mm the Forefront Square is a perfect example of timeless, understated design that works well in any style of bathroom.
