Builders' merchant, Haldane Fisher, fits out seven bathroom showrooms with new Ben De Lisi collection from Abacus Manufacturing Group
Iconic American fashion and interior designer Ben de Lisi has launched his second exclusive bathroom collection available from Abacus Manufacturing Group via www.ben-de-lisi.com and the collection is now displayed at three - soon to be seven - Haldane Fisher showrooms (www.haldane-fisher.com).
The completed showrooms are in Isle of Man, Belfast and Bangor and Haldane Fisher is an exclusive distributor in the seven geographical regions (the other regions are Lisburn, Newry, Portadown and Coleraine).
In addition, the company uses an own-brand version of the popular 400-page Abacus product and installation guide.
Abacus Manufacturing Group managed the design and installation of the cutting-edge bathroom design sets which are stunning as well as superbly built - the hallmarks of Abacus. The brand new collection for 2014 comprises baths, shower screens, shelves, towel rails, mirrors and furniture - perfect for family bathrooms, en-suites and cloakrooms alike.
Ian Pattison, MD of Abacus, explains :"The Haldane Fisher design showrooms illustrate to designers, builders and installer alike just what they can do with the all- important bathroom spaces. We show them what they can do and create - and they leave the showroom inspired."
Ian Haldane, owner of Haldane Fisher, adds: "We are delighted to be working exclusively with this beautiful brand. Our prowess in bathrooms is increasing and we are looking forward to further development in this area."
Ben de Lisi is a prolific fashion designer, equally at home creating red carpet dresses for the likes of Kate Winslet as he is collaborating on the hugely successful Designers at Debenhams range. In 2001, Ben turned his talents to interior design and it was in 2005 that he first teamed up with Abacus to develop his own line of bathrooms.
