Habersham Custom Bath Cabinetry Architectural Digest February 2013In reviewing the various projects working their way through our factory, we’re seeing increasing demand for custom bath cabinetry. So, we thought this category would be an ideal one to showcase for the ad we’ll be running in the February issue of Architectural Digest (shown here).

Over the years, we’ve watched the master bath become one of the key focus areas of in home design.  No longer just another room, it’s evolved into a  complete suite.

In fact, many masters today are outfitted with walk-in closets completely custom-tailored to the owner’s needs, as well as  dressing,  sitting, exercise areas and other features one might find in a luxury spa or resort.

To help homeowners create their own private escape, we’re always working on new designs for the master bath area.  To see some of our most recent bath designs and installations, visit the cabinetry section of our website.

What’s In A Name? Trumeau Mirror

Our trumeau wall mirror designs have been a steady seller for us over the years. The history behind these elegant designs is interesting –  A quick search on Wikipedia:

Habersham Trumeau Designstrumeau mirror is a wall mirror originally manufactured in France in the 18th century. It takes its name from the French word trumeau, which designates the space between windows. In England it is normally known as a “pier glass.”

Trumeau mirrors were originally intended to hang on a wall between windows, providing a decorative element and bringing more light to the room. Most antique trumeau mirrors are highly ornate and often gilded.

The mirror is almost always rectangular and sometimes includes a decorative portion at the top, with the mirror below it. Those designed to be placed above a mantelpiece, rather than between windows, could have candles placed in front of the mirror to increase ambient light.

Reproductions of 18th-century trumeau mirrors became popular in the Regency period in the 1950s, when French furniture was popular.

Habersham Classic Curio --  02-2725Among the new pieces we introduced during the Fall 2012 High Point Market was a new curio design, shown here.
