Art Deco ... the new taps.

Bathrooms International has launched a new range of Art Deco taps. "Exclusive to the UK and available in a range of different metals and finishes, the entire range combines the ultimate in beauty with technical excellence and unequalled quality," a company spokesman says.

"The range includes Tradition crystal taps in a matt nickel finish and Indulgence crystal taps in a Luxbrass finish," he adds.

"The fabulous Indulgence bath also from the Art Deco range is a double-ended, freestanding tub featuring an ingenious overflow running around the underside of the rim," he says. "A choice of high gloss or matt finish is offered with a total of 250 plain colours or mother of pearl."

Bathrooms International is also opening a new showroom in London this month. Seven of the UK's leading interior designers were invited to create individual bathroom settings within the showroom, which is located on Pont Street. "Bill Bennette, Ann Boyd, Nina Campbell, Todhunter Earle, Fox Linton Associates, Tessa Kennedy and Joanna Trading have all used their talents to create a stunning display of varying bathroom styles, all under one roof," the spokesman says.
