From key pieces to finishing details, find designs that will give your project the edge..

YES PLISSÉ

There’s nothing basic about the basins in the Plissé collection from Italian manufacturer Artelinea. Its plinth-style units, each made entirely from coloured- glass, feature uniformed rows of pleats. The result is a surface so shiny that you needn’t bother with the show-stopping mirror above (from the Gemme collection).

Plissé basins, POA, Artelina; showerhead, £1,660; slider shower, £1,350; mixer, £1,429; thermostatic shower valve, £3,229; tumbler, £434; soap dispenser, £793, all Gessi’s Inciso range ; Drench Frahm shower door and panel, from £1,667 (cphart.co.uk)

FEELING FLUSH

Drummonds’ Art Deco-style Derwent flush light wouldn’t look out of place in Jay Gatsby’s bathroom. We’re talking fluted, handblown glass, nine brass finishes, including polished nickel and antique bronze, and a moody, atmospheric glow. Vintage-luxe fit for a (fictional) millionaire.

Cool collab

It should come as no surprise that a collaboration between two Parisian powerhouses -interior designer Stéphanie Coutas and high-end bathroom brand THG – is, as the locals would say, très chic. Think basins, baths and taps with ‘Leonardo Grey’ and ‘Grand Antique’ marble detail.

UTTERLY DIVINE

Purveyor of the wacky and wonderful with a dark twist, Divine Savages is all set to let a little light into its moodily-lit, Deco-feel world. A collaboration with Light Up north means that designs from its wallpaper collection can now be finished with bespoke neon touches, all using electroluminescent neon wire so flexible it can be stitched onto the surface like embroidery.

Nocturnal Faunacation wallpaper, £140 a roll, divinesavages.com; framed neon artworks, from £345, lightupnorth.com.

BLIND DATE

The humble blind offers much more than mere privacy, you know. The Duette line at Luxaflex boasts a unique honeycomb structure designed to trap air inside, keeping hot air in during winter and out in summer, while absorbing up to 40 per cent of outdoor noise.

From £164, luxaflex.co.uk.

MOOD SWING

Give us a sleek Sandi-feel, veneered Nordic Oak breakfast bar and chances are we’ll be kitchen smitten. Add a fresh update for units in a navy lacquered finish and we’ll fall hook, line and sinker. Such is the case for Silvano Barsacchi’s Mood kitchen for Scavolini. Dubbed Moon Blue by the Italian firm, the new hue is just the ticket for bringing a dark and mysterious edge to your scheme, all beautifully offset with clean-cut silhouette and anthracite porcelain worktops.

Mood kitchen in Moon Blue lacquered finish, from £10,000, scavolini.com.
