VILLEROY & BOCH INTRODUCES BRIGHT OAK FURNITURE AND VANITY MIRRORS TO ITS MEMENTO COLLECTION

Jun 13, 2013

MONROE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Jan. 21, 2013) – Villeroy & Boch announced today the introduction of a new line of light wood furniture and vanity mirrors to its contemporary Memento collection. The new Memento furniture features rectilinear forms with an innovative premium bright oak surface, creating a textural contrast with the smooth ceramic products Memento offers, adding warmth and tactile appeal. Mirrors, in four sizes, with long-life and energy saving LED lamps complete the collection.

“Memento is the perfect choice for design driven home remodels seeking to create an individual, yet distinctive personality in the bath,” said Constantin von Boch, Director of Sales, USA and Canada. “Memento’s collection offers a complete selection of ceramics and furniture, and gives the option to create an elegant retreat complete with full functionality and enduring design.”

Both style and storage are the main focus of this furniture line that consists of wall-mounted vanity units in different sizes with symmetric and asymmetric washbasin positions, as well as a side and tall cabinet. The purist design minimizes visual clutter, and compartmentalized drawers offer efficient storage of bath accessories and grooming products to keep bathrooms accessible and organized. Drawers with integrated handles and ‘Soft Closing Technology’ work without making a sound. For bathrooms with a compact footprint, Memento now also offers smaller vanity sizes including matching mirrors with LED lighting.

The LED element of the Memento mirrors are finished in the same bright Oak, creating a perfect balance with the collection’s vanity units which is ideal for the homeowner seeking to create a space that is effective and well illuminated. The mirror sizes range from 17 3/4″ x 29 1/2 to 47 ¼” x 29 1/2″ and are made of exquisite quality. The striking Memento mirrors round out the entire line.

Villeroy & Boch’s new furniture and mirrors join the already extensive selection of products in the Memento collection including wall- and surface-mounted washbasins, a small washbasin for compact bathrooms, a wall-mounted toilet and a bidet. All Memento ceramic pieces are available in glossy white, glossy black or a sophisticated matte white finish. The optional CeramicPlus surface from Villeroy & Boch minimizes the need of cleaning agents.

The new Memento furniture and mirrors are now available in the US and Canadian markets. To learn more, visit www.villeroy-boch.com or call 800-536-BATH (2284).
