Victoria + Albert perfects the brass finish

Victoria + Albert perfects the brass finish

Some things really do improve over time. After making an impressive resurgence in popularity from their peak in the 1990s, brass fixtures are among the hottest trends in bathroom design with today’s styles showcasing a warmer and more sophisticated vibe than the bold brass of decades past.

Victoria + Albert Baths is pleased to meet customer requests for this exciting trend with a beautiful new unlacquered brass finish that is now available for all Florin and Staffordshire faucets.

Known as a “living finish,” unlacquered brass ages naturally, developing a unique patina over the lifespan of the fixture. The absence of lacquer allows the durable solid brass to gradually darken and reveal subtle undertones of colour and texture.

The evolving look may be used to create a feeling of “Old World” elegance in a traditional setting or to contrast with the clean lines of contemporary decor. If desired, the finish can be maintained in a polished state with the regular use of a metal cleaner. The Florin and Staffordshire Collections are smart choices to showcase this exceptional new finish, each making its own distinctive statement.

The Staffordshire line celebrates “New Traditional” design and its graceful combination of classic styles and modern lines, while Florin faucets capture the essence of the Art Deco aesthetic in a fresh way. Both collections are available in a wide range of faucet designs for the tub, basin and shower, making it easy to create a cohesive look that is pulled together down to the drains and foot finishes on the clawfoot tub. All of Victoria + Albert’s faucets are made in the U.K. using traditional techniques.


Victoria + Albert is pleased to announce its foray into the world of built-in bathtubs. “Our aim was simple – to create the world’s best built-in bathtub,” said Jonathan Carter, marketing director for Victoria + Albert. “We wanted to keep the elegance and superior quality that is part of our brand and add to that the ease and practicality of a built-in tub. We couldn’t be more pleased with the end results.”

The two new designs, the Gordano 6032 and Rossendale 6636, are beautiful in any setting, with sophisticated lines and exceptional design flexibility. Both may be installed as a drop-in or under-mount and have four adjustable feet for perfect leveling and easy installation. The tubs may be set into a custom surround built to complement any bathroom decor, making them a smart choice for hospitality settings as well as residential use.

These remarkable tubs have been designed with comfort in mind. Each has a 32° angle of recline and integrated arm rests for a relaxing soak. As with all Victoria + Albert baths, they are crafted from their signature Englishcast material, hand-finished to a glossy white shine. The material is naturally strong, which means that the tubs won’t creak or flex.


Freestanding baths: The original core product and what it is best known for. There are two collections, traditional and modern, in a wide range of styles and sizes with six exterior paint finishes.

Freestanding vessel basins: Launched to complement the bathtubs. Modern and traditional styles, made from Victoria + Albert’s English cast composite. Designed to be mounted on a solid countertop and available in six exterior paint finishes.

Faucets: Including basin faucets, tub fillers, shower units. All made in England using traditional techniques. The tree collections include modern, traditional and Art Deco.

Furniture: Both countertop units and vanities with inset Englishcast basins. All made in England using traditional techniques and solid hardwoods.

Accessories: Practical things like garbage bins, but also luxurious bath racks and luxury backrests. Notable is the new Kit 40 “intelli-waste,” the self-emptying plug that guarantees flood protection.

Victoria + Albert is a global brand with a worldwide reputation for creating beautiful baths and luxurious, lasting products.
