Evoking delight

Plumbline’s latest bathroomware comprises collections of a delectable composition of colour, texture, finish and form.

Niagara, a collection of baths and basins by Plumbline defined by their organic shapes and crisp, satin finish.

Visit one of Plumbline’s showrooms in Auckland or Wellington, and inspiration exists at every angle. They’re an immersive display of bathroom design at its best.

Carefully curated and ever-changing, the Plumbline showrooms could be overwhelming in their vastness and depth of design if it wasn’t for the team who sit down with every client, be it architect, designer, or homeowner, and work through the options in minute detail.

“Designing a bathroom can definitely be overwhelming. There are simply so many choices. We can create anything, so we see it as our job to make the process easy and have every client walk away with a visual list of product selections,” Plumbline’s Auckland showroom manager Shane Senne explains.

“So many choices and as many finishes, our showrooms are designed to inspire and delight”

Some of the latest highlights from Plumbline include Alma (pictured above), a vanity that combines an elegant timber frame with recessed drawers. Made in New Zealand, Alma is available in seven American oak veneer colours.

“We’re finding people are really interested in, and more drawn to, authentic, natural materials — pieces that offer a timeless, classic charm,” Shane tells us. He notes that Strata, a collection crafted from solid American white ash with a contemporary milled profile, as one that particularly heeds this notion.

“Because there are just so many choices and as many finishes, our showrooms are designed to inspire and delight; it is an experience from which we want people to walk away from having had an amazing time. We often start with one piece, generally tapware, and decide that finish, and then work from there to curate every other element of the bathroom,” he says.
