  4. Neorest 550H

    Wall Mounted Bathroom Fixtures

    Not only does the new Neorest 550H from TOTO boast style and comfort, it also stays cleaner thanks to its pre- and after-flush eWater+ mist of electrolyzed water. Add to that features like auto open and close, an integrated personal cleansing system, and ultra-high-efficiency siphon jet flushing, and you have the toilet of the future—today.

  5. Moroccan-Inspired Tiles

    Eastern Promise by Martyn Lawrence Bullard

    Handcrafted in Morocco, Ann Sacks's Eastern Promise by Martyn Lawrence Bullard is an updated take on the widely admired tiles that flavor the Moroccan landscape. Available in a range of patterns and color palettes, these tiles are suitable for walls or flooring.

  6. Eco-Conscious Showers

    Toto Aero Rain Shower

    TOTO’s Aero Rain Shower increases the volume of each droplet by drawing in air through the shower head and pumping it into the water. The aerated water falls in pulsating intervals, so although the spray feels like a heavy, refreshing rainfall, the fixture respects our water supply with reduced consumption.

    The new SmartFit toilets from Delta are not only super simple to install, they are also designed to reduce potential leak points by incorporating a preinstalled water supply line as well as bolts that are already secured to the tank's bottom. Available in two styles, the toilets carry the WaterSense label.
