With Salone del Mobile almost upon us, we’re thrilled to announce that Bianca Hall who writes the hugely popular blog, French For Pineapple, will be accompanying our Design and Merchandising teams as we head to Milan next week. [Stay tuned for a post-event report on all the best bits and latest trends from this international design fair.]

If you follow interiors influencer Bianca on her Instagram page, you’ll know that she’s long-time fan of C.P. Hart – as well as bathrooms in general. She’s also a talented photographer, in addition to being a bathroom aficionado, so who better to discover and capture the latest product launches from some of our leading brands? Bianca will also be searching out influential trends and key moments from Salone del Mobile, and you can follow her as she navigates the vast exhibition halls on our Instagram Stories and Twitter feeds on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th April. 

In the lead up to Salone, Bianca has put together a wishlist of products from some of the brands we’ll be visiting during Milan Design Week that she would include in her dream bathroom (or bathrooms – this is a ‘dream’ scenario, after all). Over to Bianca…

The Basin

“There's nothing more decadent than drinking Champagne from a cut-glass Champagne flute. And I imagine this cut-glass basin from Glass Design is the hand-washing equivalent. A pretty good excuse to break out the best of the best hand wash, I'd say. Glass Design basins are stunning. So unusual.”

The Toilet

“As far as toilets go, you can't go wrong with Cielo Shui. I love the quiet simplicity of this design, exactly as a toilet should be.”

The Bath

“If we're talking dream bathrooms, then it has to be a freestanding tub, right? This DuraSquare freestanding bath by Duravit also doubles as a sculptural work of art.”

The Steam Cabin

“Well, we are talking fantasy here, so it would be remiss of me not to include a Hamman steam cabin from Effegibi. Talk about decadence!”

The Brassware

“I'm head over heels for Dornbracht's Vaia collection which comes in beautiful Dark Platinum and Matt Platinum finishes."

"Gessi also have an incredible brassware collection with an extensive range of stunning finishes, including Finox Brushed Nickel, and the 316 collection really takes taps to a whole other level with the textured detail.”

It’s worth noting that not all of the above products are available on our website, so it’s best to come along to one of our 14 nationwide showrooms to check out our fixtures and fittings in person. Call ahead to make sure the product you’re interested in is in store, or visit our flagship Waterloo showroom for the most extensive range of products, and a materials and samples library where you can view the full selection of finishes.
