Modern bathroom fixtures come and go with most home owners playing it safe by choosing typical chrome tapware. So if you want to be traditional and safe them maybe this feature isn’t for you. However, if you like to push the boundaries of design, and colour, then read on.

Black is the new black. It’s the new hottest colour in the bathroom with matte black being particularly popular right now. Technically, black isn’t a colour (neither is white) but for the purposes of modern bathroom fixtures it’s the coolest hot colour around. When styling your home, give it a second look.

ZAAFDesigns is one of Italy’s most innovative industrial design companies creating yachts, furniture, bathroom products, and even electronics. I have featured their startling iStone basins before and now comes the new range of modern bathroom fixtures that are uber fabulous; the iStone Shower Column. It’s sleek and contemporary with a joint-free surface that’s easy to clean and structurally strong. But it’s not just how it LOOKS that makes the iStone Shower Column the King of modern bathroom fixtures, it’s the features;

  • thermostatic temperature settings
  • three body jets
  • separate hand shower
  • large overhead rain showerhead, and
  • matching shower base for style continuity
