New Valarte makes classic current
VitrA has announced details of a new bathroom range joining its Signature Collection during March. A perfect complement to the contemporary designs associated with VitrA, Valarte introduces the popular Shaker design which combines simplicity with fine craftsmanship and functionality.
Valarte is a modern take on a proven classic style that can be used in a traditional or a modern interior. The design, produced by VitrA's in-house team, takes its inspiration from Shaker and is available in three soft, nostalgic and on-trend shades with circular metal ring handles.
The comprehensive furniture range includes vanities, a statement towel cupboard and variety of dresser pieces. The washbasin is also available with chrome legs bringing it bang up to date for today's bathroom styles.
"Valarte is a characteristically classic design, but is so well suited to modern, functional needs," says VitrA's marketing manager Margaret Talbot.
"There is a mix of open and closed storage options with single and double door bases. Units of different sizes can be mixed and matched to suit the style and shape of the bathroom. Mid height and tall cabinets provide useful extra storage space. Both countertop and vanity basins are available. The vanity basins come in 65, 80 and 100cm sizes and the countertop in 60cm."
The vanity basins have an attractive double rim design with an upstand at the back and are available in one and three tap hole formats. The range also includes mirrors and illuminated mirror cabinets. The back-to-wall, wall-hung, and close-coupled WC pans complete the range.
"Consumers are looking for timeless designs and for products that combine value for money without compromising on good looks," says Margaret. "This is exactly what Valarte offers.
"The choice of furniture styles and sizes and the complementary sanitaryware means that the range can be used for an en-suite, family bathrooms, cloakrooms or guest bathrooms."
