Vintage style consistently ranks as a top design trend, spanning an ever-growing range of eras, as the lines between vintage, antique, historic, classic, and timeless continue to blur. Often beautifully designed and crafted, of high quality, versatile, eco-friendly, and long-lasting, vintage pieces have become even more valued and appreciated in the 21st century.
Vintage design sparks feelings of nostalgia and curiosity about the stories and ideas that inspired it, bringing feelings of warmth and comfort to the most intimate of places: the bath space. It can be minimal or all-encompassing, a detail that is a pleasant surprise with a hint of whimsy, or an alluring seamless whole that registers with subtlety.
History comes to life and speaks to the modern age through vintage design, blending with and elevating styles across a broad range of eras. With its exquisite Art Deco details, GRAFF’s Topaz Collection of luxury bath fixtures complements vintage pieces such as Art Deco mirrors and wall sconces in the bath spaces. Antique furnishings like Victorian dressing mirrors harmonize with tubs, sinks, and fixtures from GRAFF’s Camden Collection, which offers an updated take on Victorian and Edwardian aesthetics.
Mid-century tiles in patterns including chevron, hexagonal, octagonal, herringbone, and starburst create a sophisticated updated vintage feel paired with the streamlined styles of GRAFF’s luxury bath collections such as Harley, Luna, and Phase. Hand-painted wallpaper in vintage patterns can give early 20th-century flair to the bath space, as can exposed brick walls, and bath fixtures from GRAFF’s Adley and Camden collections.
Refurbishing a vintage vanity with a new sink and fresh fixtures presents an opportunity to add a modern sense of storied elegance to your personal wellness space, and GRAFF offers fixtures to suit every style. If you’re going an industrial or rustic chic route, consider using reclaimed wood to top a vanity, or for a sink countertop. Elevate it with bath fixtures from GRAFF’s Vintage Collection, inspired by classic fire nozzles, choosing from finishes such as Vintage Brushed Brass, Olive Bronze, Architectural Black, and OR’osa PVD.
Embrace vintage in the bath space with furniture such as an antique medicine cabinet, dressing table or cupboard to store towels and bath products. Pair the exquisite curves of a 19th-century French bentwood washstand with a modern sink like those from GRAFF’s spherical Arnina or Arus collections. Or explore more esoteric pieces like an antique scale or shaving stand alongside the versatile MOD+ Collection.
GRAFF’s Vignola Collection, inspired by the iconic porticos of Bologna and the famed 16th-century Italian architect Jacopo Barozzi Vignola, recalls timeless classical architecture. Vignola’s classical appeal is further enhanced with GRAFF’s Tuscan marble inserts in Storm Black, Smoky White or Forest Green.
With graceful curves, GRAFF’s Lauren Collection channels the glamorous styles of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The Adley Collection makes a bold vintage statement, recalling the grand 19th-century architecture of London. The Bali Collection, appointed with a rose gold OR’osa PVD finish, pays tribute to Bali’s ingenious traditional water systems and exquisite wellness resorts, glimmering with a luxurious sheen.
