Founded by Samuel Grogins in 1925 in Danbury, Connecticut, Waterworks Studio has an impressive history of making bathroom accessories that are inspired in design and deliberately edited for effortless simplicity. The Waterworks Studio range of fittings, surfaces, furnishings and fixtures tells the story for itself: luxuriously plush 650-gram double dobby towels, hand-forged faucets made by artisans in Normandy, France; Californian ceramic tiles; apothecary cabinets made in the USA by master cabinetmakers using 18th-century French polishing techniques and much more. Water Works Studio keeps its focus on quality by sourcing from across the globe -- whether it’s Egyptian cotton, custom-blown glass from the Venetian island of Murano or black walnut wood from right here in the USA -- and finding the right artisans to turn these raw materials into purposeful, refined bath accessories, fit for any home.
Expert craftsmanship and top quality materials are the hallmarks of anything that bears Waterworks’ name. The stylish accessories from Waterworks Studio are no exception. Here you’ll find marble tumblers, ceramic canisters, sculptural lidded jars, and more. There’s also a myriad of towels, in timelessly neutral tones like cream, sand, and rich charcoal gray.
Designer Jamie Drake meshes boldness and glamour in all his work, from Madonna's L.A. residence to multiple projects for mogul (and former New York City mayor) Michael Bloomberg. One of his hallmarks is his use of bright, noticeable color throughout homes ... and the bath is never left out. "Designing bathrooms is an exciting opportunity to bring intrigue through a complex mix of materials," notes Drake. To that end, this selection of luxe bath essentials includes his designs for bath company Labrazel (the ones under the brand name Jamie Drake for Labrazel, below). They show his attention to texture and luxury; materials including stingray, pewter and marble set an elegant, energetic tone.
