It is slightly unnerving to find oneself chatting to a very charming gentleman while he sits on a a toilet. Fortunately, however, this was the Catchpole and Rye stand at Decorex, an exhibition associated with London Design Festival. Catchpole and Rye restore and manufacture bath tubs, toilets, sinks and other bathroom associated paraphernalia. They do so with infectious enthusiasm and undeniable attention to detail that their products should be considered by anyone seeking something a little less ordinary. We will return with a full blog as soon as the dust settles on our adventures over the last couple of weeks but in the meantime enjoy the images we have collected for you. By the way, should you desire your own address, or message on a WC cistern like the example above then Catchpole and Rye are the people to talk to.
Le Bateau Grand is a superior sort of bath available polished, painted or burnished. Hot water up to your neck and then what? Oh yes. A nice french red seeing how the tub is french, right?
Le Cage shower enclosure, made entirely from brass pipe work. At over 8 feet in height, it completely envelopes the user in a cage of perforated piping that allows water to hit the body from all sides. There must be easier ways to water those flowers.
