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.
