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.(

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. 10–14 Lonsdale Road, London NW6 (
