Fairfield exposed shower valve wood levers

Nouveau classic design is about looking to the past for inspiration in terms of color and style.

Rather than being simply retrospective, this is about updating traditional styles with a contemporary look for a fresh and unique design.

Samuel Heath’s Fairfield collection is an example of this nouveau classic design. Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, the collection is epitomized by soft sweeping curves with beautifully crafted shower heads, well-formed faucets and detailed accessories. Yet the collection also features a more luxurious and curvilinear form, with the option to create a bespoke look by mixing and matching control options.

In terms of colour, earthy browns, dark greens and smoky blues can help to deliver this sense of nostalgia with a modern interpretation when combined with more contemporary fixtures and fittings.

Popular finishes such as gold have returned, but with a burnished, darker finish as opposed to the once popular yellow gold. For instance, Samuel Heath’s antique gold brass finish is designed to bring an element of rustic beauty and a nostalgic sense of comfort to the home with a softer take on the traditional gold finish.

Samuel Heath products are available from selected bathroom showrooms and department stores
