When opportunity presents, with Pelipal
With Pelipal, retailers can offer cutting edge design, innovative and precision German engineering for every budget. "When you exceed expectations, you create a winning business strategy," says the company. The roomsets on the stand were certainly stunning...
With its clean lines and simple, elegant design, the Solitaire 6010 has joined Pelipal's premiere collections. Numerous widths in the vanity units and LED lit mirrors plus a host of wall-hung cabinets are just the start of a stylish and flexible range that enables every bathroom to be tailored to individual customer needs.
With six front and carcase colours, from stunning wood replicas to high gloss or matt lacquer finishes in White, Basalt Grey and Quartz Grey, Solitaire 6010 is available with handleless or handled designs.
It's not just cabinets that benefit in the 2016 collection. Pelipal has also introduced a double basin manufactured in Krion. Eco-friendly and with a velvet touch, Krion is made of natural materials combined with a small percentage of high-strength synthetic resins to create a super durable surface that is non-porous and joint-free.
"Krion is a staggeringly robust material and one sure to impress. Hair straighteners or curling tongs can be placed directly onto the surface with no fear of burning or marking and it's impervious to cleaning chemicals and even hair dyes!" Pelipal's PR company's Ronnie Hannon told us. "If damage does occur, the basin is effortlessly repairable to look as good as new.
"The 2016 collection is the perfect mergence of functionality and aesthetics. When you get that right, you create luxury, which is precisely what Pelipal has achieved with the introduction of the rather clever Music Zone, bringing built-in sounds to the bathroom."
The integrated sound system is cleverly hidden under the vanity unit and music can be wirelessly played from any Bluetooth enabled device - mobile, laptop, tablet or other sound system. When combined with Pelipal's innovative options in LED lighting, creating relaxation at the end of stressful day is now easier than ever before.
Ronnie explained that it can be a challenge for any successful international brand to cater to local market needs, saying: "Pelipal understands the importance of listening to local retailers. This is just what it did with the successful Back to Wall range, and it has done so again for 2016 with the new Solitaire 6001, (pictured) another range designed specifically for the UK Market.
Based on Pelipal's best-selling Cassca range, Solitaire 6001 is available in smaller sizes. it includes washbasins in three sizes from 750mm up to 1300mm; a choice of wall hung furniture, LED lit mirrors and mirrored cabinets. A further option is a mirror with heating that ensures a crystal clear reflection.
