THE WRIGHT STUFF

Brizo unveiled the new Frank Lloyd Wright bath collection—a suite of lavatory faucets, tub fillers, shower components and accessories developed with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Channeling the late architect’s genius, the collection draws design elements from Wright’s work. “Staying true to Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision of reinvention was core to our product development,” says Judd Lord, Senior Director of Industrial Design, “and the foundation’s incredible knowledge and deep reverence for that vision has been invaluable.” Wright’s philosophy and six principles of organic architecture are reflected throughout the collection—simplicity, individuality, belonging, palette, substance and integrity—and illustrated in details like the cantilevered spout design, innovative side-stream water flow, and the texture and color of the Guyana teak. Shop the collection here and through Waterware Showrooms.

INTREPID COLLECTOR

John Robshaw has traveled the world, working with artisans to develop his signature block-print fabrics. Now he has consolidated his treasures in a Connecticut retail store and studio, The Shop at John Robshaw, at 5 Route 7 North in Canaan. The renovated 1840s farmhouse showcases favorite finds amassed over the years, including textiles, furniture and antiquities, and, of course, his beautiful bedding. A design studio resides on the second floor, and an adjacent barn offers more antiques, jewelry, upholstery and fabric by the yard.
