Victoria + Albert at the new House of Rohl London showroom

Focus/21 at the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is one of the key components of the annual London Design Festival. A week of seminars, exhibitions and events that attract interior designers and architects from across the UK and beyond. This year, one of the most high-profile events was the launch of a new specification showroom for kitchen and bathroom products, under the banner House of Rohl.

The House of Rohl is the family name for a group of brands including Victoria + Albert Baths, Perrin & Rowe English brassware, fireclay sink manufacturer Shaws of Darwen and Canadian brassware designer Riobel. The new showroom space presents all four brands together, as a blend. For example, displays match Riobel’s modern taps with Victoria + Albert’s sculptural freestanding baths, and Perrin & Rowe’s instant hot taps with Shaws’ Butler sinks.

The showroom is an inspirational space for planning bathroom and kitchen projects, and the showroom team welcomes designers who want to use it for themselves.

Jessica Shimwell, showroom manager and events coordinator, explains: “We have a dedicated meeting space, ideal for reviewing projects with clients, and a large screen suitable for presentations to large or small groups. We are encouraging design practices to use the showroom for training or offsite meetings. With so many people in our industry working from home, we want to provide a more stimulating environment to plan projects, with expertise on tap – and excellent coffee too!”

The House of Rohl showroom can be visited without appointment. Its opening hours are Monday-Friday 9am-530pm (closed Saturdays and Sundays). To use the showroom facilities, contact Jessica Shimwell on +44 (0)207 351 4378. More details at
