Fonderie is a perfect example of a successful, unexpected approach to designing with vintage inspired fixtures. Nationally renowned designer Ray Booth blends the classic charm of the popular Iron Works Historic Suite by Kohler with materials and icons that graciously nod to the Great Industrial Revolution of the late 1800's.
The Iron Works Historic Suite, evocative of the ornate furniture of that era, is brought out of a Victorian mindset to create a cozy bathroom retreat with intrinsic charm and historic character. The global appeal of the room is highlighted by Industrial Age icons: a refurbished antique gas lantern, factory-inspired windowpanes and a belt-driven ceiling fan. Fonderie celebrates the beauty and broad design potential this suite has to offer.
