Luxury Home Bathroom Accessories

Whether it be the guests’ powder room or the master bedroom spa choosing a unique soap dish or intricately detailed towel rail can finesse to even the smallest space and can make a striking addition to even the most modest bathroom makeover.

While this custom towel rail was designed to be used in an opulent yacht setting, by choosing a nature inspired design and a more rustic bronze medium this unique towel rail is both modest and luxurious. Had this piece been rendered in polished bronze the appearance would have been garish.

Polished towel rails and other bathroom accessories do have their place in any bathroom makeover but consider using a more sophisticated two-tone finish such as the one used below on the Ergo towel rail where the polished facets are softened by satin finished contours. The effect is labor intensive requiring  each piece to be firstly hand polished and then masked so that the contours can be subdued by hand brushing, the result though is a subtle and very tactile towel rail.

 

Our contemporary bathroom accessories in both the Ergo and Morphic collections are typically ordered in stainless steel a medium that plays well in any contemporary bathroom makeover. By comparison the more classical Hedgerow and Willow towel rails and soap dishes are used in both transitional and rustic bathrooms. That said the Ergo style can work equally well when cast in bronze and finished with an oil rubbed antique patina which gives it a more arts and crafts appearance.

Unique Bronze Towel Rails

We are known for casting unusual custom door handles and our creative designer clients often will come to us with their ideas for a new concept which is how the dialogue began with a design group in Florida who specialize in luxury yacht interiors.  As I am not well versed in specifics of yacht interiors I had assumed all yacht fixtures needed to be very light weight and made in corrosive resistant stainless steel, so was pleasantly surprised when we were asked to use our fiddlehead fern motif to create towel rails and robe hooks  in solid bronze.

While the major component of a towel rail is a simple bar the fun and artistry comes in creating wall mounts to support the rail. However, with this custom project  we were also tasked with making a curved towel rail to fit the wall surface in the master bathroom which was no easy feat given the very specific radius of the wall. In this post I wanted to show we re-invented the fiddleheads to change their function from gently protruding cabinet pulls to wall mounted supports able to take the weight of a solid bronze towel bar.

 Cast in solid bronze and finished with a dark patina to accentuate the shape. The images here are the end result of a collaborative process with our very creative designer client. Below is the drawing that helped us understand the radius needed to fit the curvature of the master bathroom wall.
