THG’s Monte Carlo Wins CTC&G Reader’s Choice Award!

We are thrilled to share another award for THG’s newest product! The lavish Monte Carlo bath collection in collaboration with Manufacture de Monaco was recently awarded the Connecticut Cottages & Gardens (CTC&G) Innovation in Design Award – 2015 Reader’s Choice Award for Best Product Design! This announcement was made at the 2015 CTC&G Innovation in Design Awards’ ceremony on May 19th at The Greenwich Country Club. THG’s Monte Carlo was the winner against 10 other products in the category!

This award is fresh off its debut at Maison & Objet Americas in Miami and ICFF, which just wrapped up in New York City! It is no surprise that THG’s Monte Carlo won! Monte Carlo is a dramatic, chic-baroque bath series in collaboration with the esteemed porcelain house, Manufacture de Monaco, bearing the official title of ‘Purveyor by the appointment of His Serene Highness the Prince of Monaco’. The lavish collection incorporates fine porcelain and Swarovski® crystals combined with 24 karat gold to create intricate multi-layers that reveal a very detailed and structured design reminiscent of antique filigree jewelry.

THG’s Monte Carlo series is presented in two variations, 24 karat yellow gold decorated with deep black Swarovski® crystals and 24 karat white gold adorned with clear Swarovski® crystals. Each handle is a true work of art and pure craftsmanship, featuring multiple patterns in 24 karat gold, Swarovski® crystals and sculpted brass. Monte Carlo offers two spout options that take the range from elegantly eclectic to classical sophistication. First, a classic fluted spout with detailed beading to match the base of each handle communicates a more traditional or purest style. Second, THG’s baroque Cygne swan spout creates a larger statement with elegance and flair to create a bathroom setting that is palatial or even avant-garde. In the graceful form of a delicate swan, the hand chased artistry on the solid brass faucetry shows that no detail is left ignored.

THG’s Charleston stars in Two Gorgeous Vintage-Inspired Installations this month in House Beautiful Magazine!

The May issue of House Beautiful magazine currently features THG-Paris’ Charleston Faucet in their Baths of the Month feature – focusing on two bath remodels that capture the essence of 1930s bath designs. Designed by Beverly Hills designer Madeline Stuart, it’s hard to believe every element is actually new. A feminine pink, white and black bath for the girl’s bathroom and a green, white and black bath for the boy’s bathroom both incorporate Charleston’s gleaming, vintage-inspired faucetry in polished chrome – which stands out among the bright, colorful tile.

Scenes from ‘A Night in Paris’ a la Fixtures and Fittings

At a glance, it seemed that the finest from the City of Lights in the way of delicious nibbles, opulent products for the home, a dazzling guest list and naturally, champagne, was transported to the lavish Fixtures and Fittings, an upscale bath showroom in the Houston Design Center for a “Night in Paris.” Hosted by Fixtures and Fittings’ Vice President, Mindy Carter, the evening attracted some 100 esteemed members of the area’s design community. Serving designers, architects and decorators and headed by Founder and President, Aaron Laine, the four-year-old Fixtures and Fittings has quickly established itself as the “go-to” source for fine taps, furnishings and accessories for the bath, including THG Paris.

The event showcased recently introduced bath suites, fittings and accessories from THG, the luxury bath atelier, including those made in collaboration with equally stellar French brands, DAUM, Lalique and Bernardaud, and other exquisite collections such as SO., Traditionelle and Beluga. The evening also celebrated Fixtures & Fittings’ partnership with luxury offerings from Bronzes de France (fine decorative hardware) and Baguès (cast brass and bronze chandeliers, pendants and sconces), both of which have roots in classical French design from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Among the notable attendees: Pamela Pierce, Pierce Design and Associates, Rachael Miclette and Shelby Steed, Jacomini Miclette Design, Lucinda Loya, Lucinda Loya Interiors, Daniel Hall, Stern and Bucek Architects, Chandos Dodson Epley, Chandos Interiors, P. Joe Shaffer, P.

Gardner Ltd. Antiques, Janet Gust, Janet Gust Design Group, Steve and Lark Howard and Anne Breux, Anne Breux Designs.

Guests were treated to champagne, hors d’oeuvres and a charming on-site stand offering home made crepes. The gallery style showroom features high ceilings, open shelving and minimal signage, all permitting unobstructed views of luxury bath vignettes in a spacious and contemporary setting. Scott Triethart, National Sales Director, THG USAand Michael Risser with Bronzes de France / Baguès were also on hand at the event.

Aaron Lane remarked, “We are thrilled to pay tribute to brands hailing from France all of which represent the best in luxury and hand-crafted tradition. Our customers seek out exceptional pieces that not only add value, but that carry a level distinction and artistry. THG Paris, Bronzes de France and Baguès are found in the world’s premier properties and exude luxury in every detail. I can not imagine offering anything more resplendent to our clients.”
