The brilliant range of bathroom accessories available via this online store includes own-brand pieces – think handcrafted alabaster soap dishes – and those that have been meticulously sourced through design collaborations with British makers such as Reiko Kaneko and Miranda Watkins.
See design-led bathroom brands such as Axor at this Maida Vale store run by former CP Hart head designer Hayley Tarrington and her partner Tony Robson. The team provides a bespoke service to help you create your perfect room, providing concept designs and mood boards that include everything down to the lighting scheme and finishes.

The Watermark Collection
This import from Brooklyn brings with it a collection of tap designs that you won’t see anywhere else. There are 14 materials on offer, from polished copper to oil-rubbed bronze. We love the copper ‘Zen’ design, finished with solid-marble magnetic handles.
The Water Monopoly
This is a great place to go for freestanding bath tubs (pictured). It stocks original vintage pieces and faithful reproductions: think copper bateau baths, plus skirted and claw-footed styles. There’s also a good range of taps, cisterns and basins available that are all inspired by early 20th-century designs.

Every one of this brand’s classic and modern bathroom fittings is hand-forged in Normandy. If you can’t find exactly what you’re after at the King’s Road showroom, you can design your own combination from a selection of reflective and matte metal finishes instead.

Bring the warmth of wood into the bathroom with a statement tub. Garvey makes all of his designs out of teak – a wood that is used extensively for boat decks – which is naturally water-resistant and antiseptic. Each piece is crafted with care at the designer’s idyllic Devonshire workshop.
