One San Diego designer, Kristen Victor of Kristen Victor Design in Little Italy, is filling a niche between custom and mass-produced bathroom furniture.
Three years on the drawing boards, her
new collection, Luxury + Water
, will be made in limited, signed editions.Then each design will be retired.
"We've been doing custom, one-of-a-kind pieces for kitchens and baths for many years," said Victor
All designs are by Victor
and fellow designer Ava Clemens. Diosa
, one of Victor's favorite groupings, includes an Asian-feel antique finish vanity with sculpted legs and carved roses that are repeated on the mirror frame.Sink and tile backsplash have a crackle finish, the wall-mounted faucet is antique brass, and the wall sconces are amber Italian glass.Cost for all pieces is about $10,000.
With items like this, Victor
believes the bath furniture should be the focus of a bath."Flooring and walls should blend in," she
will showcase Luxury + Water Collections at a
reception at her
store on Oct. 21 from 4 to 7 p.m. For more information, call (619) 696-1068.
