WOW, can you believe it is October? We can't believe it is here already, but it is, and we love autumn! We have so many new and exciting things we are bringing you this fall and even more to follow.  In this month's Newsletter we focus on just a few of the new and exciting things happening at Waterhouse. 
We have a new faucet collection from Kohler. It is the company's most comprehensive faucet collection launch in over 14 years. We are very excited about this new line (side note: it is also not available in any of the big box stores either).
We share the details of one of our new displays and give you a glimpse at the start of another.  We also have fun and exciting news about an upcoming event here at Waterhouse next month. So as you can see, we have been as busy as Santa's Elves this season. Oops, we did not mean to scare you with that, and the fact there is less then 90 days until Christmas! ~ Enjoy! 
  
Sincerely,
Waterhouse Bath & Kitchen Studio 
  
SPOTLIGHT ON:
Kohler Artifacts
uncover a wealth of possibilities
There is a feeling that comes with discovering the perfect piece for a room - a piece that speaks to your personality, your taste, your style - creating a look that is yours and yours alone. The Artifacts collection embodies this feeling.
Kohler Artifacts Single Handle Faucet

Inspired by turn-of-the-century charm and backed by the integrity of the Kohler name, each piece in this singular collection is like a vintage treasure rediscovered in a street market or antique shop.  In your hands, Artifacts can complete the look of a room - or it can become the centerpiece to build an entire room around.

SPOTLIGHT ON:
New Displays
 

We are constantly working to keep up with coming trends, styles, and  designs. We actually change out about 25% percent of our displays every year. We do this to stay more current then any other showroom in the region. One of our newest displays is our Shabby Chic display.  Shabby Chic is a design style that uses worn or distressed furnishings to achieve a romantic effect.  It is a mix of older distressed and new shinny items.

Shabby Chic Display

In our display we feature Fairmont Designs Rustic Chic collection. We used their 36" Rustic Chic vanity with farmhouse style lavatory bowl, and added the matching mirror. The faucet is an Axor Montreux widespread with cross handles and porcelain accents.  We changed the knobs on the vanity that come standard in Oil-Rubbed Bronze to a distressed white.

Victoria & Albert Edge Freestanding Tub

Fairmont Designs Rustic Chic Collection

and Axor Montreux Faucet

The freestanding tub is a Victoria and Albert Edge. We like that it followed the shape of the Apron Front sink. The toilet is a Kohler Archer one-piece. We draped the tub with clean white sheer material suspended buy a simple piece of rope to give it a romantic feel. To finish the display some wall décor, a nice round rug, and a shiny side table for soaps and such. We have a feeling you are going to like it, but if not, chances are that we have something else to suit your tastes!
  
If the shabby chic display is not your "cup of tea," it actually might just be the new display we are currently working on. This new secret display will be featured in our Kohler Premier space. Follow us on Facebook to track our progress and be up-to-date on all the other great features and products we have to offer.
NEW DISPLAY (what will it be?) Only time will tell, check our Facebook page often  for more details

Kohler Turns 140 Years Old!
Celebrate with us November 12th!

We are celebrating Kohler's 140th anniversary this November!  Mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 12th, and please join us for the party we are calling "The Bold Birthday Bash"!  We promise you will have a great time.  Besides, what's a birthday without cake, fun hats, and some great prizes?!?! 

 

Happy Birthday Kohler

 (you don't look a day over 120)

Kohler Company is  a global leader in kitchen and bath design and technology - is celebrating its 140th anniversary this year. From its humble beginnings in 1873 to becoming one of the oldest and largest privately held companies in the United States, Kohler has become synonymous with quality and innovation.

One of Kohler's First Bath Tubs
Kohler Co. was founded in 1873, when its founder, John Michael Kohler, an Austrian immigrant purchased the Sheboygan Union Iron and Steel Foundry which produced cast-iron and steel implements for farmers in the area, castings for the city's furniture factories and ornamental iron pieces that included hitching posts, cemetery crosses, urns and settees. 
Kohler's Early Beginnings
In 1883, John Michael Kohler took a product in his line, heated it to 1700°F and sprinkled it with enamel powder. Placing a picture of it in the center of his one-page catalogue, he called it "a horse trough/hog scalder... when furnished with four legs will serve as a bathtub." This was how Kohler came to be in the plumbing business. 
Kohler Foundry
Like John Michael Kohler himself, many of the early employees were immigrants. Their dedication to excellence helped forge one of the oldest and largest privately held companies in the United States.  After four generations, Kohler remains a family-owned company, with over 26,000 products and 13,000 patents to its name, and still leading the industry in innovation and design.
