Waterworks Introduces Upholstered Furniture

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

Best known for high-end plumbing fixtures, Waterworks has introduced a new line of upholstered furniture.

In a recent press release, Kristen Knisley, Waterworks Public Relations Manager, writes,

“The new pieces, consisting of two unique design groups, display the intelligent use of high quality material and the finest craftsmanship, and are a welcome addition to the existing Legion and Sloane collections of bath furniture. Manufactured in the United States, each piece is solid mahogany or maple…”

“Drawing from the linear, modern forms of Campaign furniture of the mid-nineteenth century, the Legion collection embodies practicality, functionality and simplicity. The four pieces, including a relaxed chair, pitched back chaise, two person bench and an essential stool, are precisely engineered for suitability and comfort.”

“The Sloane collection incorporates restrained and disciplined design details that include generous scales of proportion. The tailored form of the leg and the graceful arc of the cushion lend a light, lively feel to chaise, chair, bench and stool. The Sloane design is sized for comfort within scale.”

“These new pieces can be upholstered by Waterworks in Waterworks for Kravet Soleil performance fabric, or ordered in a muslin fabric to allow for clients to custom upholster.”
