Old Fashioned Charm For Modern Bathrooms
"It's one of the most popular home furnishing products we've ever sold," says Wally Lindgren, president of Midwest Group, Eden Prairie, Minn., distributor.
The solid-oak tank, hand finished in the tradition of fine furniture, is insulated to avoid sweating. Solid brass pipes continue the decorative quality, and the elongated, siphon-jet bowl is quiet and sanitary. Both the tank and bowl are designed to save water.
Complimenting the water closet is an elongated solid oak seat with polished brass hinge. Solid oak framing sets off an ornate, matching wall mirror. Rounding out the "old fashioned charm" of this unique bathroom suite is a hand-rubbed oak vanity. Raised panel drawers and cain front doors give it a distinctive look. Also available is a justintroduced pedestal type sink. All the pieces are available in a matched set, or you can buy them separately.
Here's another "touch of class" you can add to really make the bathroom's decor distinctly different: You can have keepsake items, such as photos, old coins, rings, stamps, dried flowers, concert ticket stubs or personal mementoes encased in clear acrylic. The piece, with the mementoes enclosed, can be made as the vanity counter top, or as the lid of the toilet seat. You decide what type of items you would like to have encased in the clear acrylic, and the company will tell you if the material is acceptable for encasing, what it will cost, etc.
