Heritage = quality, Samuel Heath … a BlogTourNYC sponsor

March 9, 2012

When a company has been in business since 1820 you know they are doing something right. Samuel Heath has a heritage approaching almost 200 years and produce some of the finest brassware available in the world. They are today’s featured sponsor of Blog Tour NYC.

If you are into glamour the Fairfield range will be perfect for you. Taking its design inspiration from the Arts and Craft movement the style would  work well in either a traditional or a contemporary bathroom. To up the glamour stakes you can choose crystal levers for your taps. If you are seeking a more restrained look a range of wooden levers are available – this look also adds warmth to a bathroom.

Samuel Heath produced its first brassware for a factory in Birmingham in 1920. Although styles and fashion may have changed since those days, craftsmanship has remained firmly at the ethos of the company. Their range is manufactured from the purest Northern European Brass and goes through a lengthy process of fabrication, plating and polishing to produce the final product.

The Xiera range has a very simple pared down design with its styling taking a more feminine route than some of the recent excessively large macho taps! With very simple curves this is a very livable range. The full range includes basin taps, bath taps and concealed shower valves.

The Xenon range has been one of the Samuel Heath products for a number of years and is a personal favourite. I have specified this range for two client’s bathrooms. This range is all about clean lines, stripping the fittings down to their purest elements. With a full range of accessories the Xenon range is also available in a trendy matt black finish.

Don’t just think about bathroom fittings when you think of Samuel Heath. The company also produces taps for your kitchen, and door and window furniture. I love the simplicity of this door handle. The design is very pure and again would suit traditional or contemporary interiors. Like all Samuel Heath products it has a very definite feel to it – too much door furniture is lightweight.

Samuel Heath were one of original sponsors of the London BlogTour last year and it is great they are one of the sponsors for our New York trip. If you are visiting Design Week in London next week they have a great showroom in Chelsea Harbour or you can see their whole range online.
