German manufacturer burgbad has brought a fresh new look to the bathroom with its Mya range, which takes inspiration from the classic wooden clothes horse and features light, open pieces in natural or dark grey matt oak veneer. Themed around hanging rails and storage drawers, matching matt basins are also available in white or black. Warm and minimal with a Shaker feel, the collection includes a full-length mirror, £1,788; a large freestanding towel rail, £1,373; bench, £1,068 and vanities with boxes that fit neatly on the shelf below the basin, priced £4,312.


A complete destination for luxury bathroom and kitchenware, Waterworks has expanded its product range with 140 new items that harness the vintage and industrial look the company is known for. There are two new fittings collections, a new bathtub and an assortment of new vanities, fixtures, accessories and furnishings. These Regulator deck-mounted basin taps have black drop lever handles and are shown in the new Shadow finish, priced from £2,340. Playing on the design of industrial boiler room controls from the early 20th Century, they work well in a pared-back monochrome scheme.


Drummonds’ skirted Serpentine bath is manufactured from durable cast iron and has a distinctive low-profile design. Its curved and contoured sides and back offer relaxation and comfort with prices from £3,390 for the L170cm x W76cm x H52cm version. As well as the skirted option, there is also a model with art deco styled cast iron feet. Made to order, added options include polished and lacquered, raw iron, metal clad, primed or a hand painted finish.


Triton Showers has launched HOST, a wireless mixer shower with personalised settings. Along with wireless controls that can be placed anywhere in the bathroom, it allows you to create up to three custom presets for your perfect water temperature and flow. With the control unit available in black, white or cloud grey and priced from £380, the panel offers full text and colour TFT digital display and can be installed anywhere on the wall within 10 metres of the mixer box. It also comes with handy remote control and can be paired with a selection of Triton showerheads.
