Press Release   •   May 17, 2016 15:50 BST

The finest materials, stylish designs and an elegant look and feel – premium bathrooms are becoming confident showcases for supreme luxury. With their flowing lines, delicate shapes, fine details and eye-catching material combinations, Villeroy & Boch's premium collections add a particularly luxurious touch to any modern bathroom.

Hommage: retro charm with a luxury feel

The Hommage premium bathroom collection radiates the typical style of the early 20th century. The elegant design takes characteristic turn-of-the-century style features and brings them right up to date with strong, clear lines combined with modern functionality. The result is striking ceramics which coordinate ideally with furniture in a variety of finishes. From a pure, clear white for a retro and yet timeless bathroom to a warm wood shade emphasising the furniture's vintage inspiration. To complete the effect, the collection also includes an elegant free-standing bath.

Wooden-framed mirrors, in a white or wood finish, add a further stylish touch and are available in matching widths to the vanity units at 685 mm and 985 mm. Square chrome or black handles, two new options, give the furniture an elegant and timelessly modern look.

La Belle: the avant-garde romantic of bathroom design

Inspired by the Romantic era, the La Belle premium collection combines emotional appeal and contemporary spirit in an exclusive and delicate design. As well as a flat vanity washbasin with smooth edges and a wall-mounted toilet and bidet, La Belle also features a premium selection of hand-painted furniture consisting of various vanity units with high-quality drawers as well as occasional furniture, with certain items available in a patterned finish.

The La Belle series also includes a Quaryl® bath, available either as a free-standing model with a coordinating panel or a built-in installation with an optional whirlpool system. Villeroy & Boch has drawn inspiration from the distinctive, flowing shape of the bath to design a large surface-mounted washbasin, creating a consistent design language spanning the entire La Belle collection.

With its narrow radii and slim border, the new washbasin has a particularly elegant and delicate look, while the comfortable basin depth ensures absolute functionality. It is available either with or without an overflow. The overflow hole is located opposite the tap and is very discreet and inconspicuous, as is the integrated ceramic valve cover. For the tap, a wall-mounted spout model or a raised pedestal version, such as those from the LaFleur series, make ideal choices.

LaFleur: timeless elegance and gentle emotional appeal

With their smooth, perfectly proportioned shapes and a choice of six different handles, the LaFleur taps and fittings open up scope for personalised bathroom design. As well as the modern cross-shaped effect of LaFleur classique, a reminder of the stately grandeur of bathrooms of days gone by, the selection includes stylish conical designs made from crystal glass, porcelain or sparkling Swarovski crystals. All taps and fittings are available in either Chrome or Champagne - an attractive gold finish made from components including high-quality palladium and gold. The series includes a selection of washbasin taps as well as different models for the bath and shower.

Octagon and Squaro Prestige: exclusive design highlights

The exclusive Octagon pedestal washbasin epitomises stylish luxury in the bathroom. It is made from the innovative TitanCeram material, developed by Villeroy & Boch especially for premium designs, as it allows the creation of precise shapes with extremely thin wall thicknesses and sharply defined edges. The Octagon that inspires its name is portrayed in ceramic form; a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with facets inside the basin creating a real brilliant cut effect. Available in an exclusive selection of veneers, the striking pedestal completes the effect.

The Squaro Prestige bath is an enhanced version of the Squaro Edge 12 bath, winner of the Interior Innovation Award 2014. This high-quality free-standing bath features a narrow 12 mm rim, made possible thanks to the use of the Quaryl® material. It also meets the most discerning standards of bathing comfort. The highlight of the Squaro Prestige baths is their real wood veneers, applied in a complex manual process at a German producer and making each bath a unique item.
