In the residential bathroom, “transitional” style—an admittedly ambiguous label, but one that has nonetheless persisted in the industry—has lately and happily edged closer to contemporary. The shift is certainly attributable to design trends found in the hip hospitality sector. Here’s a selection of items that are new to the market.
With a 17-inch bathing well, wide deck, and integrated lumbar support, this oval soaking tub offers comfort and easy access. The center-drain, 66-by-36-inch acrylic fixture is available with straight or fluted shroud.
Offered in 30 finishes, the sinuous design is made of solid brass. The collection includes high- and low-profile faucets, as well as a full complement of tub fittings. Made in California.
