Styling a sanctuary


As our homes increasingly open up to shared, highly social spaces, there's a corresponding need for bathrooms to be transformed into inner sanctuaries – places for personal retreat and reflection.

In such spaces, every element, from the super showerhead to the smallest soap dispenser, helps to achieve an aura of calm and personal expression.

Leading Italian fittings and fixtures producer Gessi recognized the bathroom's importance as a place of private wellness more than 20 years ago. The company also recognized that the shower, as the center of our daily routine, should provide both an opportunity for exceptional relaxation and the same aesthetic pleasure as a treasured piece of art.

Larry Allen, CEO managing director of Gessi North America, says Gessi has created a new style of living.

"Gessi products are designed to be experienced," he says. "They allow the user to enjoy personal spaces that offer a new sense of wellbeing."


To this end, Gessi has designed a spa shower with generously sized, well-styled showerheads that provide a variety of water experiences, from "cascade and massage" to "mist and rain". A convenient hand-shower, plus misters and body sprays, further enhance the spa shower as a special retreat, as does the right lighting.

"To fully enjoy the private wellness benefits of a bath sanctuary, the feeling needs to extend throughout the room," says Allen. "A seamless look contributes greatly to the tranquility of the space. That's why Gessi offers fully coordinated collections, complete with sinks, faucets, and accessories that bring a coherent style to the whole bathroom. All of the elements share the same essential shapes, clean forms and harmonious proportions."
