Bathed in Colour: Victoria + Albert Baths Introduces Six New External Finishes for 2017
TORONTO (May 1, 2017) - New for 2017 in Canada, Victoria + Albert has introduced a popular range of external colour tones to help consumers and designers coordinate their bathroom décor, and embody a particular style. In addition to their original high-gloss white ENGLISHCAST® finish, the brand is now offering six distinctive new external finishes including: Gloss Black, Anthracite, Stone Grey, Light Grey, Matte Black and Matte White. Each finish is multi-layered using a special catalyzed paint, and hand polished between applications, resulting in an exceptional depth and luster that is considerably more durable than hand painted surfaces.
Now, classic shades of grey and warm dark tones are available on Victoria + Albert's entire line of freestanding tubs, basins and vanity furniture. Designers looking to convey the trending rustic, industrial look are opting for neutral colours – such as crisp white, glam gray, and rich black -- to create a bathroom that looks clean, calm and collected. Mid-tone neutrals like Stone or Light Grey strikes a happy balance between strong and soft that works in the bathroom. The overall look is natural and elegant, which the mind associates with spaciousness.
Make a strong statement with Victoria + Albert's bold new dark tones: Gloss Black and Anthracite, sure to enliven any space. Using a standout dark tone will make a neutral bathroom memorable - because "anything goes with black."
"Matte black is a new dramatic neutral that adds energy to a bathroom. Matte is a tactile finish that evokes the feel and look of cashmere, adding a new dimension, or layer of luxury to a space," says Jane Lockhart B.A.A.I.D. of Jane Lockhart Interior Design, celebrated Canadian design and colour expert.
The Matte finishes are also a first for Victoria + Albert – available in Matte White and Matte Black. With just the exterior of the bath being matte, the user can enjoy this style trend, and still benefit from the easy-clean internal white gloss of ENGLISHCAST®.
