DXV by American Standard

blogtourtubAs I promised, I’m back to tell you why I was hanging out in this tub. During the BlogTourNYC I had the pleasure of touring the new DXV showroom in New York. DXV is a new luxury bathroom and kitchen brand that showcases the 150 year history of American Standard. The DXV line has over 70 exceptional products designed and influenced by the history of the most significant design movements. The collections have been divided into four general movements which included, Classic {1880-1920}, Golden Era {1920-1950}, Modern {1950-1990} and Contemporary {1990-today}.

DXV1During the tour and presentation I got a close look at all four collections. What really impressed me in each collection was the design of the faucets.

DXV3All were very intricate with a great deal of attention being paid to function. The designs were smooth with a simple rhythm and sexiness about them. Each faucet was luxury at my finger tips. I then imagined having children and seeing their tiny little finger prints all over my beautiful faucet, which made me kind of sad. But then I thought, “Hey, this is one fixture I would actually like cleaning”.

DXV2Now on to my great new love. The Lyndon freestanding tub. The second I saw this beauty I just had to get in. And once I climbed in I let my imagination run away with me. Below is a concept sketch of the bathroom I daydreamed about while pretending I was actually soaking in this prized piece.

In my mind I could just see this tub taking center stage and I kept thinking brass, waterfalls and flowers. All of which would strip my stress away and carry me off to a dream world. Yup, that’s how I felt in just the minute I was actually in the tub. I can just imagine how it would feel if I truly had a place to put it. If you are looking to create a rich Zen bathroom in your own home, check out my design board below. And if you are looking to renovate a kitchen or bathroom any time soon make sure to check out DXV and American Standard. For all my small space dwellers the Fitzgerald suite is for you. Small in size but big on style…Happy Decorating Everyone.
