For designer Richard Furze, the choice to specify black bathroomware is often an easy one. That’s because it’s dramatic, it’s fresh, and it’s central to creating a unique contemporary aesthetic.

While it’s still not often the first thing that comes to mind, it’s definitely a trend that’s developing, and Richard’s all about creating forward-thinking interiors. “I often choose to use Heirloom products, especially from their Black Collections because they represent a mix of classic softness and contemporary lines,” he says.

Of late, he’s also redesigned his own bathroom with Studio 1 Noir bathroomware. “Because you can mix and match between the different ranges, you can create something that looks great with each element complementing the other and achieve a similar overall consistency between the curves, lines and squarer more modern edges. This works really well in contemporary renovations of older homes because you can keep that element of heritage feel while creating a fresh, contemporary design.”

But it’s the black that stands out, and that’s something Richard says is vital to adding a freshness to any design. “I often find that people are looking for something new and having the black as an option is great. I think Kiwis are happy to experiment and try something new, so this allows them to have another option to choose from.”

Heirloom recently launched two collections of black bathroomware, Studio 1 Noir and Genesis Nero, both of which represent elegant, contemporary aesthetics. “They evoke an element of drama to the bathroom and a touch of daring in their immediate contrast to the surrounds and what people are used to.”

While they are forward-thinking collections, there are options to choose a more classic look in black with traditional rounded edges, or simply to go for the unabashedly contemporary linear forms.

Heirloom is a leading international designer and manufacturer of bathroomware products, with an ever-evolving group of collections, which are available throughout the country.
