The 2021 Bath Collection will bring together the best of contemporary design with a seamless business service model adapted from the brand’s commercial arm, Room & Board Business Interiors.

“We are excited to mark our entrance into the bath segment with the industry’s premier show,” explains President and COO Bruce Champeau. “For over 40 years, we have been committed to perfecting products and services for an unparalleled customer experience. Our bath collection is a reflection of that devotion, combining those trusted elements of our brand that our customers have always valued with Room & Board’s trademark timeless, modern aesthetic.”

Fusing the brand’s signature style, sustainable practices, and artisan roots with Room & Board Business Interiors’ tailored services, the Bath Collection caters to architects and designers with a plethora of original vanities with multiple finishes, sizes, eco-friendly quartz tops, and sink options. Complemented by coordinating hardware, mirrors, lighting, rugs, storage, and decor, the full collection brings together artful function and subtle beauty for a luxurious and cohesive bathroom oasis.

Instilling a Business Interiors’ level of service, specifiers and designers will receive plentiful advantages, including: complimentary space planning and furniture specification services, transparent pricing, high-volume discounts, free warehousing, and full-service white glove delivery for a flat rate of $79 anywhere in the United States.

Holding true to company ethos, the Bath Collection keeps sustainability at the forefront. Using sustainably sourced American woods and modern steel, more than 90% of products are made in the US by trusted craftspeople to provide the utmost combination of quality and price – and the fastest delivery – with the least amount of environmental impact.

Room & Board’s 2021 Bath Collection includes:

VANITIES
The anchor of the bath collection, Room & Board’s vanities are inspired by classic design styles of the past, including arts & crafts, Japanese and modern minimal design, and finished with sustainable, eco-friendly quartz tops. Using responsibly harvested American maple, cherry, walnut, and ash, and corrosion-resistant steel, US artisans make each bathroom vanity to the same exacting standard as all of the brand’s storage collections, with special construction details like dovetail joinery and hand-applied stains.

MIRRORS, MEDICINE CABINETS & LIGHTING
Room & Board’s carefully crafted mirrors and lighting are designed to effortlessly coordinate with the brand’s vanities. Refined mirrors are customizable by the inch and made with high-quality glass to provide accurate reflection, while LED sconces and pendants illuminate and punctuate the bath space.

HARDWARE
Crafted in the US, towel racks and cabinet hardware are designed to complement each other and are available in three finish choices, allowing specifiers to mix and match components. Plus, all hardware ships for free via UPS.

RUGS
Modern, comfortable, and durable, Room & Board’s exclusive assortment of modern bath rugs offer a wide range of textures, materials, colors, and patterns to complete the bath experience.

DECOR & STORAGE
From plush highly absorbent Egyptian cotton towels to sleek toothbrush holders and versatile baskets, Room & Board’s artisan-crafted and carefully curated options marry the best of modern design with functionality.

Key pieces from the bath collection will be on display at Room & Board’s virtual KBIS 2021 booth, February 9th through March 31st, and in the brand’s 19 US showrooms.
