Interior architect Mark Gascoigne of Studio Gascoigne worked with Plumbline to design the showroom, which includes over 20 full bathroom settings, each completely set up with different styles of vanities, showers, toilets, baths, tiles and lighting. It’s this feature that sets this showroom apart, “There’s a lot of different layouts and design ideas, including double showers, walk-in showers, matching stone freestanding baths and basins all with stunning lighting and tiling features to bring them to life.” Obviously people’s requirements are different depending on their house, bathroom size and budget, but after perusing the different spaces in the showroom, people can get a clear idea of what sort of style they like which then makes designing and selecting products for your bathroom a dream!”
There’s also a lot of one-off designs that, as Wallace says, many people will have never seen anything similar to before. He describes them as “wow products”, pieces that provoke the imagination and alter people’s perceptions of what can be achieved with bathroomware and design.
The full range of Plumbline’s international brands are showcased in the new showroom, all of which are exclusive to Plumbline in New Zealand. The carefully curated collection showcases some of the finest bathroom products in the New Zealand market from sought-after bathroom brands including Italian names Gessi, Catalano, Fantini, Falper and Bisazza as well as English brand Shaws, and New Zealand bathroomware brand Progetto.
The showroom is designed for guests to wander through and take inspiration from the extensive and detailed bathrooms and separate product selection zones. Touchscreen computers are available throughout for designers or customers to check specific styles and dimensions offered, while a hot desk area with free Wifi is set up as a space for designers and architects to use at their leisure. A large kitchen space complete with coffee machine and a bar area operates for designers to use with their clients.
The showroom opens in March 2017 and is located at 23 Davis Crescent, Newmarket, Auckland. Visit Plumbline on ArchiPro here for some inspiration for your bathroom project and be sure to visit the new showroom.
