Prettiest toilet

Remember the Kohler 140th anniversary party in Kohler, Wisconsin? I really love traditional classic-looking bathrooms. I’m obsessed.

 

Last spring, I was able to immerse myself in the world of Kohler – in New Orleans, Chicago and Wisconsin. There I saw all the models of Kohler toilet and bathroom fixtures. I also got to see their original factory and witnessed how the toilets, bathtubs and sinks are still being made the same way it was done with the artisanal touch of human hands updated with robotic technology.

Even before I had a professional relationship with Kohler and they sponsored my cast iron kitchen sink, I had already been a fan. Our bathroom is fitted with vintage-looking Kohler fixtures. So it brings me so much joy to be able to share this wonderful world of Kohler via our Auction for Action to benefit Unicef programs in the Philippines. Kohler has generously donated an Artist Edition toilet and countertop accessories. You can view and bid here til October 27th.

This is our tiny bathroom which I renovated in 2008. I used Bisazza tiles all over the walls and floor. Then I had to have a vintage-looking pedestal sink so I chose Memoirs, which meant I had to get the matching toilet. And yeah, you can see the pipes from this angle. Our mirror is my mother in law’s antique piece.

Last April 2013, the chairman and CEO of Kohler Co., Mr Herbert Kohler, Jr. on stage at the 140th anniversary in Kohler, Wisconsin. Behind him is a wall of toilets representing the heritage of their family business.

But I still gravitated towards the pretty traditional set called Revival.

Well, as it turns out, Kohler donated our our Auction for Action this same Revival toilet, but in a special Artist Edition print called Briar Rose. “Inspired by the graceful beauty of climbing roses, Briar Rose features a bramble of English roses in soft shades of pink, green, and brown. The enchanting pattern adorns a Revival two-piece elongated toilet, which displays the rolled edges and elliptical shapes of vintage 1930s design. With a powerful 1.6-gallon flush, this two-piece toilet makes a striking and practical addition to your bath or powder room.”
