The Parkside x Rutland London collaboration has brought together the two companies for a series of photographs showing off the latest ceramic tiles and brassware. With Parkside sourcing tiles from the world’s best manufacturers and Rutland London manufacturing its luxury brassware in Hampshire, the project demonstrates the ability of global and local design influences to work in unison.
With the lavish green marble effect tiles of Pulp and the ultra-glossy green Lenton brick tiles from Parkside teamed with Rutland London’s classic brushed brass, Parkside x Rutland London Palazzo showcases a timeless look grounded in high luxury hotel interiors. For Parkside x Rutland London Elysium, the dusk of Fauve Pink, bold tropical print of Orta Flora and terrazzo-effect, high slip resistant Durali tiles are teamed with polished brassware for a look inspired by key interior trends.
Taking Rutland London’s polished nickel finish, Parkside x Rutland London Samarkand brings fresh meaning to Mediterranean style with the backdrop of Parkside’s crackle gloss Fauve Yellow brick wall tile and Fusion Blu pastel floral pattern. In Prism, we see an ultra-modern look with Rutland London’s brassware in antique brass, paired with a striking vertical installation of Spectre in the Milk hologram and Durali terrazzo wall and floor tiles.
Mark Williams, sales and design director, Parkside, explains the collaborative partnership: “A meeting of chance in Chelsea, where we both have showrooms, saw a conversation about bringing our complementing products together to create a series of inspirational bathroom locations. While we may have different approaches – our international sourcing of tiles and Rutland London’s made in England brassware – we share surprisingly similar end results, beautiful products at the forefront of design, and so the partnership is not as unusual as one might first think.”
Parkside x Rutland London features some of the latest introductions from both companies in a series of bathroom looks that demonstrate depth, versatility and the appeal of enduring quality.
Rupert Harris, Rutland London: “The tapware, towel rails, shower enclosures and vanity units in the collaboration represent the quality and timeless style synonymous with Rutland London. Manufactured from solid brass with ceramic disc cartridges, our brassware is available in over 20 finishes, including variations of bronze, copper and gold. Alongside, it is WRAS approved for commercial interiors, making it a natural partner to Parkside’s architectural tiles.”
Parkside will be presenting its latest tile additions to the London design community at Focus/20 between 14 and 18 September. Visitors to the London Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour event are invited to “The Sanctuary” a bathroom setting inspired by wellbeing and health and featuring products from Rutland London and Botanique Workshop.
