Range of the Month: Henley
Details of the Range
Our Henley collection is a traditional sanitaryware collection with a distinctive, refined style. Henley is one of our most popular and versatile ranges. Choosing a Deco-inspired chrome basin stand instead of a pedestal, for example, or opting for black ceramics instead of traditional white can dramatically change the tone of the room.
What we love about Henley
There is something quintessentially English about the Henley collection. The neo-classical lines reflect Edwardian tastes, and would be equally at home in a modest Victorian townhouse or Downton Abbey. Naturally Henley is made in England, in the Potteries, using the skills and craftsmanship for which the area is famed.

What makes Henley unique from other traditional ranges on the market?
Henley is an exceptionally comprehensive range, so options are available to suit most bathrooms. The quality is of the highest order. The flawless finish of the ceramics is achieved by applying layer upon layer of a unique glaze, by hand. It will give pleasure in use for years and years.
Why is it called Henley?
After the town of Henley-on-Thames, home of the Henley Royal Regatta. The Regatta is an entirely unique event, based on a set of noble principles, appealing to dustmen and royalty, and very, very English. I like to think that was the parallel the designers intended.
What brassware would complement the Henley range?
I have two suggestions. Our new Chatwal collection has similar clean lines and bold shapes, adding a touch of Art Deco style.
More traditional is our Original brassware, designed by C.P. Hart’s son, John. British-made, hand-crafted quality to complement the elegance of the Henley sanitaryware.
