Perrin & Rowe opens flagship showroom in Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour
Perrin & Rowe has opened a 680sq.ft flagship showroom in the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. The new space aims to inspire visitors and allow the quality of its premium brassware and chinaware, which is designed, engineered and made in the UK to be seen first-hand.
Overseen by global interior designer, Kamini Ezralow of Studio Kamini, the focal point of the showroom is an impressive curved wall, which displays brassware like precious jewellery.
Managed by contract executive Sarah Leddin, Perrin & Rowe's contract manager Phillip Cole is also based at the new showroom, which offers a dedicated area for meetings with architects, specifiers and contractors. The space is also available for retailers to bring clients or for consumers researching their next big project.
"While Perrin & Rowe has displays across the UK with retailers, this is the first showroom that is dedicated to Perrin & Rowe products and allows us to showcase and demonstrate the quality and versatility of the designs and how they can suit a wide range of project styles," explains Phillip.
Offering a curated edit of handcrafted Perrin & Rowe bathroom products from three timeless and stylish collections; Deco, Traditional and Contemporary, the showroom also features kitchen sink and tap displays including a fully functioning Filtration Mixer with Rinse and a Mini Instant Hot tap that provides up to 98 degrees C steaming hot filtered water instantly. All eight finishes, from classic Chrome through to on trend Satin Brass are also on show.
Cast, glazed, fired, inspected and packaged by hand in Tamworth, the Perrin & Rowe chinaware collection offers sophisticated, elegant designs that suit modern and traditional bathrooms. A highly skilled and passionate team of craftsmen focus on making low volume, high quality sanitaryware pieces from the finest Cornish Clay, which are glazed to a thickness that exceeds industry standards and fired in a kiln three times at temperatures up to 1200 degrees C. Production moulds are also made by hand on site along with hand clay mixing to ensure the very best results.
Perrin & Rowe can be found in some of the finest hotels, resorts and super yachts around the world, such as the Sandy Lane in Barbados, Corinthia and Langham Hotels in London, Leela Palace in India, and Huka Lodge in New Zealand.
