Be Well, Do Well
In a busy, intense world, the spa might be the only place we switch off our phones and truly relax – and homeowners are now actively looking to recreate these rejuvenating experiences at home. So much of the success of these spaces is down to design: beautiful materials and luxurious touches as well as consideration for ergonomics and functionality – summed up by the ‘Pinna Paletta’ console basin pictured, from West One Bathrooms. The Design Centre East showroom is joined by new arrival Villeroy & Boch, a company for which ‘wellness’ has long been important, while Victoria + Albert Baths’s silky Quarrycast sanitaryware demonstrates how touch is an important sense in the bathroom. Samuel Heath’s high-quality taps and showers are a further way to create a calm escape from the rigours of modern living.
