Classic Style Shines Through Front Window

This front window display aims to be a showcase while keeping the design true to a home master bath, according to designer J. David Ulrich, CKD, of Ridgewood, NJ-based Ulrich, Inc.

“As ingredients to a successful elegant master bath, this display features a mahogany furniture-style vanity with crystal knobs, towel pull-outs and a marble top,” says Ulrich.

A chandelier suspends from a lighted ceiling dome and draws attention to the repeating arches over the sink, vanity, tub and shower opening.

Products displayed include mahogany cabinetry from Draper DBS, a BainUltra Thalassa White tub, Rohl’s Perrin & Rowe polished nickel fixtures, as well as a white vitreous china sink from Rohl.

Clean Lines Define Ultramodern Display

High gloss finishes, clean straight lines and a vivid palette helped to set the stage for the ultramodern display created by designer Areti Tanya Rentzos, with co-designer Anastasia Rentzos of Mississauga, ON-based Andros Kitchen & Bath Designs.

Sustainability was also a consideration: “An induction cooktop, Miele refrigerator and LED lighting were some of the ways [we] strove to convey conservation as a focus,” says Rentzos. The team included a casual eating area that doubles as a sitting area for in-showroom client presentations.

Movement Creates Impactful Display

Organic lines that move across this display draw the eye around the design, according to principal designer Artur Leyzerov, who created this design in conjunction with co-designer Oleg Vasylichuk, both of Toronto, ON-based Symphony Kitchens.

“A vivid and artistic hood offers an interesting focal point, which belies its functional purpose and presence,” says Leyzerov. Decorative posts hide pull-out spice racks on either side of the pot drawers.

Clear glass was used in the pantry door to emphasize the outline of the curved detailing. The cabinetry is custom from Symphony Kitchens and is a mix of plywood and carved MDF. It is painted silver-gray with a sanded finish. Every detail in this kitchen display is hand-carved. Additionally, the soft-close plywood drawers are fitted with Blum undermount slides.

“This showpiece was created to offer consumers fresh, new thinking in modern kitchen design and to inspire the open-ended concepts,” Leyzerov concludes.
