On Oct. 16, French bathroom fixture manufacturer THG and porcelain giant Bernardaud hosted a cocktail reception at the Bernardaud Boutique on Park Avenue in New York to debut their elegant and whimsical joint collection for the upscale bath. More than 150 guests ― designers, architects, showroom clientele, high-end homeowners and the press ― perused the opulent retail location where they sipped wine, mingled, and previewed the signature collections of the evening.
Guests encountered a luxurious vignette of the complete Marquise bath suite. The regal Art Deco Bathtub by THG featured beautiful etchings of platinum bay leaf garland. It was complemented by a tub filler in delicate Bernardaud porcelain in the same motif as the tub.
In addition to the Marquise Collection, the Park Avenue Series collaborative effort by THG and Bernardaud was introduced at the event. It featured black porcelain with gold décor. The lavish collection is comprised of a single- or double-branch sconce, a stunning chandelier and dainty cabinet knobs.
“The event turned out to be everything we had hoped for,” announced Scott Triethart, national sales manager of THG. “The boutique was the picture of refinement, and guests couldn’t help but fall in love with the elegant items. Our collaboration with Bernardaud is a revolution in interior design. After all, who ever thought we would incorporate china in the bathroom and actually make such a highly stylized and sophisticated statement?”
